Coriander seeds are among the most commonly used herbs around the world and contains many health benefits.

Coriander is composed of essential volatile oils and important fatty acids that contain anti-flatulent and digestive properties. Coriander, like cumin, stimulates the release of insulin to help regulate blood sugar, and is strongly anti-inflammatory and anti-carcinogenic. These seeds are also rich in dietary fibers, which help treat constipation and indigestion.

Other important nutrients include:

  • Vitamin C, Calcium, Copper, Iron
  • Manganese, Magnesium, Potassium, Zinc

All required for the proper functioning of the body. Their unique oils also promote a sense of calmness and help to curb anxiety and insomnia, and are well-known for raising HDL cholesterol and removing plaque from the inner walls of arteries and veins. Recently studies have also shown that coriander is able to neutralize the carcinogenic compounds formed in meat during cooking.

These are but a few of the benefits of coriander, making it an invaluable part of a healthy diet. Coriander is found within every AcroAma spice blend, and as you would expect we strictly source 100% organic medicinal quality to ensure the maximum potency of this most beneficial of culinary herbs.

    You'd be a wise sage to add this herb to your recipes. Not only does it have a soft, sweet savory flavor, but for millennia sage has also been prized for its health-promoting qualities.

    Sage infusion has long been recognized as "thinker's tea," due in part to its ability to antagonise GABA and Seratonin receptors--thereby enhancing concentration and attention span, and alleviating one's mood (1).

    Many historical physicians have praised sage's medicinal qualities. Dioscorides, Pliny, and Galen all recommended sage as a diuretic, hemostatic, emmenagogue, and tonic (2).

    The famous physician herbalists John Gerard and Nicholas Culpeper both wrote about sage. In 1597 John wrote of sage in his foundational encylcopedia Herball, stating that 'It is singularly good for the head and brain and quickeneth the nerves and memory". About fifty years later Culpeper confirmed in his book The English Physician, saying that "It also heals the memory, warming and quickening the senses" (3).

  • An Introduction to the Necessity of Chemically Active Culinary Spices

    The importance of bio-active spices in the diet has long been understood in traditional medical systems, and modern science has made significant progress over the last two decades in revealing both the scope and critical roles culinary spices play in health and disease.

    There are currently near 200 spice-derived nutraceuticals under study for a variety of therapeutic activities, including but not limited to tumor necrosis factors, anti-inflammatory agents, protein and cellulose digestive aids, and antiseptic activities that negate harmful compounds found in vegetables and meats.

    Most of these beneficial chemical agents are volatile oils found within the various spices, the same oils that give a spice its distinctive aroma. The term "volatile" is used to reflect the delicate nature of these oils and their tendency to degrade or evaporate quickly due to processing and exposure to heat and oxygen.

    The highly fragrant leaves of the basil plant owe its aroma to the unique health-protecting effects of basil's family of flavonoids and volatile oils. These oils are strongly antiseptic, and have shown the ability to induce antibiotic actions against pathogenic drug-resistant bacteria.

    Basil's flavonoids protect cellular DNA from damage resulting from radiation, oxidation, and the effects of GMO ingredients found in today's food supply. It's volatile oils are able to inhibit an enzyme in the body called cyclooxygenase (COX), the same enzyme which is the target of anti-inflammatory medications including aspirin and ibuprofen.
