Top 12 Superfood Herbs and Spices

Many herbs and spices fall within the category of powerful anti-inflammatory superfoods because they are rich in phytochemicals. Researchers from the University of Michigan have found, for example, that holy basil has anti-inflammatory activity compared to ibuprofen, naproxen, and aspirin. Why are anti-inflammatory foods important for good health? Because inflammation is suspected to play a key role in heart disease, cancer, atherosclerosis, arthritis, asthma, allergies, and more.

Why not sprinkle some of these powerful healing herbs and spices on your foods? Here are the top 12 anti-inflammatory herbs and spices.

Ginger
Turmeric
Black Pepper
Cinnamon
Rosemary
Basil
Cardamon
Chives
Cilantro
Cloves
Garlic
Parsley

Herbs work on inflammation in a multi-faceted holistic and balanced way without the side effects of drugs.
