Spice Up Your Health

How can you spice up your health?

High blood pressure is one of the seven largest contributors to our overall risk profile for the #1 cause of death in the developed world – Heart disease!

You are probably familiar with common dietary recommendations to eat less sodium and more potassium to lower blood pressure, but salt is not the only flavour element that can impact your ticker. It turns out that dialling up the spices in your food can also help keep your BP in check.

According to a September 2021 study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, people who ate more herbs and spices – in particular, cinnamon, turmeric and oregano – recorded lower blood pressure readings 24 hours later.
