Women's health activist Dr Sharon Ufberg has extolled healing properties of culinary spices and herbs. 

Writing for the Huffington Post, she praised turmeric as an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory agent. According to the health journalist, it was also found to have had anti-cancer properties.

Cinnamon was touted for its ability to regulate blood sugar and insulin levels, while rosemary, described as a "strong, aromatic, woody spice", was said to fight inflammation and reduce stress.

Meanwhile, common black pepper was recognised as an un-championed mainstay of chefs' repertoires.

"It is found in almost every savoury recipe ever written," commented Dr Ufberg.

"Pepper [is] popular for its potential diverse curative powers, including a variety of digestive disorders and inflammatory conditions."

She explained that they best way to use pepper to its full advantage is to buy whole peppercorns and grind when needed.

"Add spices to your daily health regimen to prevent and treat the chronic diseases," the expert urged. "High in powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, spices are a perfect way to add new flavour to your favourite dishes while guarding your health."
