Reach for Rosemary and Oregano
A spice blend added to meals can help lower triglyceride levels. Researchers found that adding a blend of antioxidant-rich spices and herbs can help lower triglyceride concentrations as much as 30 percent compared to the same meal without the blend. The blend includes black pepper, cinnamon, garlic powder, rosemary, oregano, cloves, paprika, turmeric and ginger. The findings, completed by Penn State nutritionists, are available in a supplement to the current Nutrition Today. The research was supported by the McCormick Science Institute.
