What can HERBS do for us?

Herbalist Maya Daghighi from the College of Naturopathic Medicine looks at the health benefits of some basic herbs and spices

An anti-inflammatory powerhouse, used in everything from skin care to weight-loss and even arthritis support. The bright yellow colour indicates that turmeric is rich in antioxidants, helping cells to fight damage. It is best used in cooking and in combination with other digestive spices, such as ginger, black pepper, cumin or fennel.
