Why Should You Eat More Herbs and Spices?

Herbs have been used since ancient times for their medicinal properties, mostly concentrated into teas and tinctures. More recently, their healthful value as a food ingredient has been realized. For one, herbs add a burst of flavor to food, allowing you to cut back on salt without sacrificing taste. And several herbs, including parsley, have significant amounts of the essential vitamins A, C and K.

But the true power of herbs lies in their wealth of protective polyphenols — plant compounds with potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects. Piles of studies show that polyphenols in herbs help combat such diseases as cancer, heart disease, Alzheimer’s, diabetes and more. Polyphenols are anti-microbial, so they can help protect us from harmful bacteria as well. Although many of the studies on herbs’ effects have involved concentrated solutions of the leaves’ active components, there is evidence that their benefits still apply when they are cooked and eaten as part of a regular meal, too.


        Nutritional Information 
         
        Sage packs a healthy dose of vitamins and minerals.
        One teaspoon (0.7 grams) of ground sage contains:

        Calories: 2
        Protein: 0.1 grams
        Carbs: 0.4 grams
        Fat: 0.1 grams
        Vitamin K: 10% of the
        reference daily intake (RDI)
        Iron: 1.1% of the RDI
        Vitamin B6: 1.1% of the RDI
        Calcium: 1% of the RDI
        Manganese: 1% of the RDI

        As you can see, a small amount of sage packs 10% of your daily vitamin K needs.
        Sage also contains small amounts of magnesium, zinc, copper and vitamins A, C and E.
        What’s more, this aromatic spice houses caffeic acid, chlorogenic acid, rosmarinic acid, ellagic acid and rutin — all of which play a role in its beneficial health effects.

        Since it’s consumed in tiny amounts, sage provides only minuscule amounts of carbs, calories, protein and fibre.
