Curry can improve your health.

Here at Curry with Love, we firmly believe that our Curry Kits are a healthy choice. Not only are they low in fat, but the freshly ground spices and whole spices that we use, have many health benefits. Here's just a snippet of how Indian spices can help to improve your health.

Turmeric, Ginger, Cardamom, Clove and Black Pepper are all commonly used to treat a number of gestational complaints, such as bloating, stomach cramps, diarrhoea, gas, heartburn and loss of appetite. 

Turmeric in particular is said to help with arthritis, and can also be used for skin complaints. It is being researched widely for its anti-cancer properties.

Current research is suggesting that Cinnamon may help people with type 2 diabetes, as it is thought to help increase insulin action.

Fenugreek is a rich source of iron, nutrients, minerals and fibre. It can help to lower bad cholesterol and is also said to help protect the colon mucus membrane from cancers.

Chilli powder and Paprika has been proven to reduce bad cholesterol. It's also packed with antioxidants and can improve eye health. Chillies boost your metabolism too, which means eating our curry can help with weight loss!

Fennel seeds are a good source of vitamin C, fibre, iron and potassium.

Cumin is thought to boost overall health. It has the ability to aid digestion, aid your sleep and help with breathing complaints, such as asthma, bronchitis and even the common cold.

Star Anise is rich in antioxidants, and has antibacterial and anti fungal properties.

Coriander is great for cleansing and detoxifying the body. It can purify the blood, aid digestion, help to reduce fever and keep allergies at bay.

Curry Leaves also help the body to loose weight as they change the way our bodies absorb fat. They help the fight against diabetes by keeping our blood sugar levels in check. Curry leaves are also great for women in early stages of pregnancy, as they are rich in folic acid and iron. These leaves are also packed with vitamins A, B, C and E. And as if all that wasn't enough, these leaves also help our hearts to function better.

So now, after all this research and typing...I think I need some chillies to help with my eye health! 

Doesn't food taste better when you know it's doing you good?
