In this context, a British nutrition expert confirmed that some spices help reduce the risk of developing cancer, diabetes and other diseases, and thus “prolong life”, according to the newspaper “Express”, the expert.
According to Jessica Nippes, there are three natural spices, which have beneficial properties and help protect the body from dangerous diseases. These spices are:
“Curcumin can extend life by inhibiting lipid oxidation, and by increasing antioxidant activity,” says Jessica Nippes, according to the British newspaper.
In one study, it was found that patients who took 4 grams of turmeric daily for a month reduced their risk of colon cancer by 40%.
Nippes listed “cinnamon” in second place, as it helps reduce blood sugar levels in people with type 2 diabetes, and reduce inflammation.
She added, “The results of one study showed that cinnamon extract can reduce the proliferation of cancer cells, which causes their death.”
The British expert also confirmed that “cinnamon oil” is very effective in fighting tumors.
And “sage” came third in the list of spices that help prolong life, as it helps improve brain function and memory, and this is very important when suffering from Alzheimer’s disease. Sagebrush is also useful in preventing heart disease.
