Let’s face it – we can’t bring ourselves to eat food that doesn’t have plenty of mirch and masala.. But did you know, that apart from flavour, these spices are loaded with tons of health benefits? Find out what they are!
1. Turmeric (Haldi)
This bright orange spice has been used in Ayurvedic remedies for years. Curcumin, its main ingredient, has powerful anti-inflammatory properties, and can help treat arthritis and infections. Turmeric also treats heartburn, stomach aches, diarrhoea, gas, bloating, and loss of appetite.
2. Coriander (Dhania)
These fragrant seeds contain two oils that are powerful antioxidants with anti-rheumatic and anti-arthritic properties. Coriander helps reduce swelling, lowers cholesterol, treats diarrhoea, lowers blood pressure, improves bone health and boosts digestion.
