Spice up your cleansing regimen

Spices-blog_0616 Herbs are truly a gift from nature. Not only do they add wonderful flavor to dishes, but they offer many health benefits, including the possibility of cleansing the body of harmful toxins.

Spices like black pepper, cumin, ginger, parsley, oregano, and turmeric may have cleansing properties. And, many of them can be easily grown in a backyard garden. Couple these herbs with your favorite meals to take advantage of their potential cleansing benefits.

  • Black and white pepper are great flavor agents. They are made from the Piper-nigrum Black pepper is ground from dried, whole unripe fruit. White pepper is ground from dried, ripe fruit that has had the outer layer removed. Black pepper may help digestion by increasing hydrochloric acid secretion, necessary for the digestion of proteins and other foods within the stomach.BioPerine, a black pepper extract, is a key ingredient in PURE Café. It enhances the absorption of nutrients.
  • Ginger is considered by many to be one of the best detoxifying herbs. It has been used medicinally for thousands of years for its antioxidant benefits. In fact, it is used in many cleansing programs. The beneficial portion of the plant is referred to as the rhizome, which is the thick underground stem. To benefit from this herb, try infusing finely chopped ginger root in boiling water. Add lemon juice and Stevia sweetener for a refreshing drink, hot or cold.
  • Milk Thistle gets its name from the milky sap that comes out of the leaves when they are broken. The seeds are more commonly used. It is known to have antioxidant properties, and is an ingredient in Capsule Cleanse.
  • Oregano, we know, is widely used in Italian food. A study in the Journal of Nutrition found that oregano, among other dried culinary herbs, contained very high concentrations of antioxidants. Antioxidants help protect healthy cells from damaging free radicals. The authors stated that in a normal diet, the intake of herbs may contribute significantly to the total intake of plant antioxidants, and can be an even better source of dietary antioxidants than many other food groups such as fruits, berries, cereals and vegetables.1 Oregano adds flavor to broccoli, tomatoes, mushrooms and potatoes. It tastes great sprinkled on chicken dishes as well.
  • Parsley’s unique taste comes from a phytochemical called polyacetylene. This herb contains vitamin C, chlorophyll, beta-carotene, vitamin K and folate, which may be used by the body for detoxification. Finely chop parsley and add it to a salad or use it in pesto. Parsley can also be added to juices or smoothies.
  • Turmeric is a plant that comes from the ginger family. It contains a phytochemical substance called curcumin, found in Daily Build. It is yellow in color, and is found in a lot of foods from curry to mustard. Studies suggest that curcumin’s antioxidant properties can support overall health by helping your body maintain a healthy inflammatory response to potentially harmful foreign invaders. Add turmeric to soups, rice dishes, vegetable and chicken dishes and more. Another nice treat is to add 2 teaspoons turmeric, 1 teaspoon ground ginger and a few drops of Stevia natural sweetener to warmed almond milk.
