In brief: Nearly all of them

Almost all spices have many benefits.
For example, garlic lowers cholesterol & blood pressure & thins blood, cinnamon lowers blood sugar, turmeric is an incredible anti-inflammatory as is ginger, which also relieves nausea. Even salt is an essential nutrient (sea salt is best).A great website that provides detailed information on the benefits of many herbs & spices is www.Whfoods.Com/foodstoc.Php.
