Benefits of Cumin

Spice contains a rich source of iron that helps to fight nutrient deficiencies and the fight against free radicals. The plant compounds that are linked to cumin includes terpenes, phenols, flavonoids and alkaloids. These elements can reduce damage to the body through oxidation, acting as antioxidant agents against unstable electrons.

“The oxidation of fatty acids in your arteries leads to clogged arteries and heart disease. Oxidation also leads to inflammation in diabetes, and the oxidation of DNA can contribute to cancer.”



Benefits of Basil

Basil is used for reducing cholesterol, stomach spasms, loss of appetite, intestinal gas, kidney conditions, fluid retention, and strengthening heart functions.
