Dr Oz: Saffron Kills Cancer
Doctor Oz said that saffron comes from the inside of a crocus plant, and it is the “gold standard” for spices. Saffron helps to fight off cancer. Dr Oz explained that cancer cells grow through bringing and building their own blood supply in your body. The saffron can actually enter the cancer cells and send a signal that causes the cancer to “commit suicide.” Dr Oz even said that saffron may be the cure for cancer in the future. Saffron is not a cheap spice, it is around $10 per jar, but you only need a small pinch.
Dr Oz: Horseradish Helps Digestion & Liver Detoxification
Dr Oz said that horseradish is very effecting at helping digestion and liver detoxification. The gall bladder is stimulated to release bile when you eat horseradish, which is one of the reasons that horseradish is such a great alternative to digestive problems. And here I thought that the main health benefit to horseradish was that it cleared my nasal passages!
Dr Oz: Rosemary Fights Allergies & Arthritis
Dr Oz said that a great benefit of rosemary is that it fights off Arthritis and Allergies. Rosemary blocks a chemical that triggers our immune system, therefore your immune system calms down and stops reacting to allergies. Plus, who does not love rosemary bread, rosemary in stuffing, rosemary in chicken… the list goes on and on!
