9 Herbs and Spices With Proven Health Benefits

Even when our food choices aren't the best, herbs and spices do more than just improve taste.  They give any meal a nutrition boost.  And according to a new study they may even reverse the damage from an unhealthy meal. 

Researchers from Penn State University cooked up coconut chicken, cheese bread and a dessert biscuit for six men. The subjects were aged 30 to 65 and overweight but otherwise healthy.  On one day the meal was served plain.  On another day researchers added two tablespoons of a blend of nine herbs and spices to the meal. 

After each meal the researchers drew blood from the subjects every 30 minutes for four hours.  They found that antioxidant activity in the blood increased 13% after the spicy meal compared to the plain meal.

Chapter 2:  Emerging Risk Factors

"The Terrain is everything."  ~ Louis Pasteur

During the mid 19th Century in France, a vigorous war of ideas raged in the upper echelons of the French scientific community.  On the one hand, Louis Pasteur was developing his germ theory of disease, and on the other, Claude Bernard was focused on the "milieu interieur", or, in his words, the constancy of the internal environment." In other words, Bernard felt that the nourishment of the body, its ability to get rid of toxins and wastes and the strength of its immune system provided the foundations for successfully confronting both acute and chronic disease.  Although Pasteur and others fought long and hard for the supremacy of the microbe theory of disease, Pasteur affected a dramatic turnaround late in life, and on his deathbed is said to have uttered, "Bernard was right.  The microbe is nothing.  The terrain is everything."

We wholeheartedly agree healthy terrain is the foundation for a healthy body that can mount a strong defense against cancer.  In this chapter, we'll cover the basics of emerging risk factors for breast cancer:  the ones that deal with the internal terrain as Bernard or Pasteur might today envision it. These factors include dietary and nutritional influences, toxic exposures , and the health and equilibrium of the body's own internal systems, such as hormonal, digestive and immune system balance.  We consider these risk factors to be so important that we've devoted entire chapters to many of them later in the book.  Others we'll just touch on briefly in this chapter.

Preventing Disease Before It Starts

The human body has over 60 trillion cells, and every one of them is vulnerable to the development of multiple diseases. One of the biggest problems facing medicine is how to diagnose these diseases earlier, in order to improve the chances of stopping and reversing them.

Reverse Insulin Resistance With These 8 Foods

Reverse Insulin Resistance With These 8 Foods

Over 80 million Americans have insulin resistance that can lead to diabetes.  And you could be on the road to diabetes for 10 years or more and never even know it.  Here's what happens.

The hormone insulin directs your cells to open up and take in glucose from the blood.  With insulin resistance, your cells become desensitized to insulin.  They ignore the instructions to open up and take in glucose.  Your body keeps producing more insulin to try to get the message heard.  But it doesn't work.  And your insulin levels rise higher and higher.

Science Shows Herbs Can Significantly Enhance Bioavailability of Nutrients


Science Shows Herbs Can Significantly Enhance Bioavailability of Nutrients

Just because you consume a particular food or drink, doesn't mean all the nutrients make their way into the body, to the locations where they end up being used or stored. Sometimes they just pass right out of your gastrointestinal tract without being absorbed and other times they are broken-down immediately by the liver and excreted by the kidneys.

Nutrients have to make it through a variety of obstacles, starting from the moment they enter your mouth to the moment they are used or stored. The bioavailability of a particular nutrient refers to the ability of the nutrient to pass through some or all of these obstacles, so that they are absorbed into your body and become available for use or storage [1].
