Spices can boost immunity indirectly. By stimulating digestive enzymes, they improve your body’s ability to extract nutrients from foods. They benefit immunity directly through their anti-oxidant value. In fact, they are really “Super Foods.”
Here’s a winter spice mixture masala for enhancing immunity.
• 3 parts Indian Turmeric
• 3 parts Ground Cumin
• 3 parts Ground Indian Coriander
• 1 part Ground Fennel
• 1 part Powdered Ginger
• 1 part Ground Black Pepper
• 1/4 part Ground Cinnamon
• 1/4 part Ground Cardamom
Mix all the powdered spices well and store in an airtight container in a cool place away from direct sun. Some people will want to omit the Fennel and or the Cardamom.
