The spice measured to have the highest antioxidant effect is cloves. In the West, it’s most often used as a Christmas decoration or for its fragrance in the home. But it could also be used more beneficially in cooking, as it tastes great in soups and smoothies. Ceylon cinnamon is also an antioxidant-rich spice, which has been shown to have beneficial health effects. However, it’s important to choose Ceylon cinnamon and not the “regular” cinnamon, if you want to take make the most of its health-promoting effects. Another example of a useful spice is turmeric, which has long been used in folk medicine and is known for its anti-inflammatory properties.
