Turmeric – anti-inflammatory specifically aids as a cancer fighter also known to lower blood pressure
Sage – anti-inflammatory, helps with sore throats
Marjorie – helps with Digestion and sleep
Oregano – Fungal infections
Ginger Root and Apple Pie Spice – Normalizes our ph helps with Nausea and known to lower blood pressure
Jamaican Allspice – helps with gas, bloating, and aids in digestion
Cinnamon – effects blood sugar especially after meal. Also an anti-inflammatory which is anti-cancer
Cumin – helps lower blood glucose levels and is great for anti-bacterial
