My Favorite Anti-inflammatory Spices & Herbs

Let's talk herbs & spices!




Which herbs & spices do YOU use on a daily basis?


Below are some of my favorite herbs/spices that help reduce inflammation markers in the body!


๐ŸŸ  TURMERIC: Turmeric has over 300 ACTIVE compounds,m; by now, you've probably heard of curcumin (one of the most well-recognized compounds). Studies have demonstrated that curcumin has the ability to reduce interleukin 6 (IL-6), high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP), and malondialdehyde (MDA) which are all markers for inflammation. ๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿผ For a little tip, be sure to use black pepper alongside of turmeric to help increase the bioavailability of the curcumin!

๐ŸŸก GINGER: Ginger has over 100 active compounds that are thought to help with inflammation; studies have demonstrated a reduction in C-reactive protein (CRP), tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-ฮฑ), and interleukin 1 beta (IL-1ฮฒ) (all markers of inflammation).

๐ŸŸค CINNAMON: Studies have demonstrated a reduction in CRP and malondialdehyde (MDA) (markers of inflammation) ๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿผ Be careful with cinnamon, as small amounts are best and larger amounts can be harmful to the liver (aim for no more than 1 tsp). Cinnamon can also help to regular blood sugar levels!

โšช๏ธ GARLIC: Garlic's sulfur compounds appear to have anti-inflammatory compounds; studies have demonstrated a reduction in CRP with garlic.

๐ŸŸข ROSEMARY: Rosemary's high polyphenol content is thought to help reduce inflammation. With these herbs/spices, not only are you making your dishes more flavorful, youโ€™re also giving them an anti-inflammatory PUNCH ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿผ It's like a 2-for-1 deal!


By no means is this an extensive list of all spices/herbs that help decrease inflammation markers, but itโ€™s a good starting list. In my programs, I emphasize the use of spices and herbs to help clients find that extra punch (from a flavor perspective and a health perspective) to help them decrease inflammation & the frustrating symptoms that come alongside.
