Herbs, Spices And Antioxidants


Recent studies indicate that those herbs and spices we use, might not just be giving our taste buds a boost. Scientists at the University of Oslo in Norway have reasons to believe that herbs and spices should be a part of an antioxidant-rich diet.

Did you know that only 1 gram (half a teaspoon) of cloves will render the same antioxidant benefits that a half cup of blueberries or cranberries would. Blueberries and cranberries are known for their high level of antioxidants. A half cup of dried oregano is the antioxidant equivalent of a half cup of sweet potatoes.

Both fresh and dried herbs and spices contain signifi-cant levels of antioxidants and are good sources to add to your diets.

Following is a list of dried and fresh herbs and spices that are rich in antioxidants:

Fresh

Marjoram
Lemon Balm
Thyme
Peppermint
Sage
Oregano

Dried

Basil
Tarragon
Oregano
Saffron Marjoram
Thyme
Rosemary
Cinnamon
Allspice
Cloves
