Fresh herbs make everything taste better, and they’re loaded with good stuff. According to World’s Healthiest Foods, basil has 98% of your recommended dose of Vitamin K, the vitamin no one really talks about but one that is vital for protein synthesis and blood coagulation. Basil is often paired with rosemary, another herb infused with health benefits. Rosemary helps boost the body’s immune system, circulation and digestion. Who knew adding a little flavor could reap such big benefits for your overall health?
If you’re accustomed to grating your own cinnamon or ginger tea, then opt for the fresh stuff. Otherwise, pick a tea bag, any tea bag. Chamomile, jasmine and ginger or cinnamon are good fits. Your kitchen is going to smell like a little piece of herbal infused heaven. Soak it up.
