Cinnamon
Research studies have shown that cinnamon helps regulate blood sugar and lipid levels in type 2 diabetics. It actually activates enzymes that stimulate cells, which helps the body respond more effectively to insulin. A dash of cinnamon in coffee actually promotes a feeling of satiety.

Curry/Turmeric
Curry contains Turmeric, which a number of studies have shown possesses anti-inflammatory and antioxidant qualities.

Dill
Dill possesses anti-oxidant and anti-bacterial qualities. Dill’s name comes from the old Norse word “dilla” which means “to lull.” This name reflects dill’s traditional uses as both a carminative stomach soother and an insomnia reliever.
