1. Turmeric

Turmeric is known as one of the most powerful and healthiest spices on Earth. The most potent component is its oil, which contains the yellow or orange pigment called curcumin. Numerous studies show that curcumin's anti-inflammatory effects are comparable to over-the-counter anti-inflammatory drugs. It's also an effective treatment for inflammatory bowel syndrome and acts as a powerful antioxidant. It may neutralize free radicals, which are chemicals that travel through the body and cause damage to healthy cells and cell membranes. Turmeric has a distinctive, peppery, warm and bitter flavor. It's often paired with cumin, cinnamon, and cardamom and primarily used in Indian-style curries and chutneys.
