While Traditional Chinese Medicine and Ayurveda have known this for thousands of years, Western science is just today discovering that many spices provide powerful anti-inflammatory and energy-boosting effects, in small doses also.
Here are three spices that can help you boost your mood:
* Turmeric is composed of curcumin, known as a powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant. This classic spice does more than help create a festive feel around the holidays.
* Cumin: In Traditional Chinese Medicine, cumin has also been used to help boost sex drives.
* Cloves: This aromatic spice was used by the ancients to improve libido and sex drive.
