- Astragalus root
- Powerful immune-building adaptogen that is a useful ally in beating stress and fighting disease
- Jalapeno peppers
- The heat from these peppers comes from capsaicin, which is a potent anti-inflammatory agent, known to inhibit Substance P, which is associated with inflammatory processes.
- Contains two substances known as allicin and alliin, which are sulfur-containing compounds that have antibiotic properties and are thought to prevent the formation of carcinogens in the body, or block carcinogens from reaching sensitive areas of the body. Garlic also has anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-yeast properties.
- Rich in dietary fiber, folate and Vitamin C. The sulfur-containing compounds in garlic and onions are incredibly helpful in optimizing the detoxification pathways.
- Rich source of many therapeutic compounds including antioxidant flavonoids, phytonutrients and phenols along with vitamins A, C, K, calcium, potassium, magnesium and folate. Cilantro is well-known for its ability to bind to heavy metals like lead, cadmium, mercury, and arsenic (known to lead to illnesses like heart disease, neurological diseases, and infertility) and help eliminate them from the body. Several studies have demonstrated that cilantro protects against oxidative stress caused by lead while one study proved that cilantro could effectively accelerate the body’s elimination of harmful heavy metals.
- Known for its naturally-occurring substances that act like antioxidants. Some of these are called apigenin and luteolin. Antioxidants help neutralize free radicals, making them incredibly useful for detoxification. Cumin also seems to have anti-carcinogenic properties because of this as well.
- One study found that cumin was among nine popular herbs and spices that were the most anti-carcinogenic. Cumin is also known for anti-bacterial and antifungal properties. This is thought to be due to a compound known as cuminaldehyde, which is effective against a range of pathogens. Cumin is also great for helping control blood sugar levels and improve blood lipid scores, like triglycerides and cholesterol. It has also been shown to have anti-inflammatory effects, making it a great addition to your spice cabinet.
- Apple cider vinegar
- A type of vinegar made from apple cider that has undergone fermentation to form health-promoting probiotics and enzymes, giving it significantly less sugar and fewer calories than apple cider or apple juice. Aside from tasting fantastic, apple cider vinegar has a number of health benefits. Most notably, it can help with weight loss and lowering blood sugar levels.
- Black pepper
- Helps aid in the absorption of other plant phytochemicals and nutrients (like curcumin, for example). On top of that, pepper itself is known for its anti-inflammatory and chemoprotective qualities. Piperine can kill cancer cells by activating apoptosis. It also can block the growth of breast, prostate, and colorectal cancers. Piperine appears to help elevate serotonin levels in animal studies.
