We’ve shared with you what antioxidants are, how they can benefit your body by sweeping away free-radicals and reversing the damage those free-radicals cause to your system when taken daily in a capsule but, did you know you can get their benefits from culinary herbs as well? Read on to learn how the antioxidant herbs you add to your dinner add health to your life.

Culinary Herbs = Culinary Antioxidants

Just as free-radicals are found everywhere, their nemesis the antioxidant is as well! From berries to herbal supplements to culinary herbs you can provide protection and healing for your body from the damage caused to tissues and cells. Free-radicals have a connection to many aging-related ailments like dementia, cataracts, macular degeneration, atherosclerosis, and arthritis, among others. Here’s a list of 4 herbs to add to your spice rack to help scavenge the free-radicals from your system and also help prevent spoilage in your foods!

  • Oregano: The most powerful of culinary antioxidants! The potency of oregano lies in its flavonoids and phenolic acids, used by the plant to protect itself from the damage of light. Greek oregano is the most aromatic of the group and has shown great promise in testing as a beneficial addition to your meal to keep your cells and tissues happy!
  • Basil: This herb is most effective at sweeping away free-radicals when it is enjoyed fresh and, with so many varieties to choose from, that shouldn’t be hard! Purple, Green, Dark Opal, and Thai basils are some of the most popular types available. Purple basils get their antioxidant action from the anthocyanins and green basil from other flavonoids, both effective in protecting the skin from the

    damages of the sun. Because basil is best when used fresh, add it at the end of cooking or sprinkle it on your food as a healthy and flavorful garnish.

  • Parsley: Not just a garnish! Hanna believed in the healing powers of chlorophyll herbs and instructed those who came to see her to use if for everything from body odor to repelling insects to assisting with the woes of breastfeeding. Today we can add to Hanna’s list the healing powers parsley provides because of the list of antioxidants it contains (apiol, myristicin, Vitamin C, lutein, and zeaxanthin). Both flat and curly types have similar nutritional profiles and do the most good work when enjoyed uncooked.
  • Rosemary: There’s a reason this herb makes it into Kroeger’s Resveratrol Six! Rosemary contains antioxidant phenolics, including carnosic acid. This acid may protect against brain cell damage by penetrating the blood-brain barrier to promote healthy circulation and act as a therapeutic agent for neuro-degenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s. Unlike the herbs listed above, rosemary retains its potent properties even when cooked.

Other Culinary Antioxidants

Turmeric is a culinary wonder and provides support to inflammed areas of the body, the heart, skin, and the entire system as a potent antioxidant.

Hanna also wrote of the ailments Rosemary can remedy.

  • In early times, Rosemary was burned in sickrooms to purify the air. During the plague of 1665, it was carried by individuals to sniff occasionally to ward off disease.
  • Rosemary is a powerful antioxidant and can protect the brain from toxins and the effects of aging. This is the reason Kroeger Herb included it in Resveratrol Six, an herbal combination with anti-aging benefits throughout the body, including the brain.
  • Rosemary is helpful for colds and flu as it improves breathing, supports lung function, and can soothe a cough. It may encourage the immune system and is thought to improve candida conditions.
  • Rosemary tea makes an excellent hair rinse and encourages hair growth, relieves dandruff, and restores color. The tea is also an excellent antiseptic mouthwash and gargle.
  • Because it is a warming herb, Rosemary stimulates circulation of blood which eases headaches, migraines, and can improve memory.
  • Rosemary is a powerful antibacterial and antifungal herb.
  • Rosemary essential oil is thought to nourish the body, energize the mind, and purify the spirit.

Other Remedies for Bad Breath

Hanna taught us that our body utilizes itself to give us signals that something is wrong internally. For example, with bad breath she instructed us to check our gall bladder and liver health as bad breath could be an indication that something may be faulty with those organs. Along with the not-so-obvious sources, like the liver, gall bladder, or even a zinc deficiency, came the practical places to check as a cause of bad breath like the gums. If you aren’t taking proper care of your mouth, you could be developing gum disease which produces a foul odor in the mouth as the condition worsens. The health of your mouth plays a role in the health of your entire body! (see how oral health affects your heart here)

Hanna recommended choline, inositol, chlorophyll (in tablet or liquid form), and B-complex to assist in ridding your mouth of odor as well as the homeopathic remedy Arsenicum album.

Everyday To-Do List to Remedy Bad Breath

Brushing is the easiest remedy for bad breath!

We’ve all heard that we should brush after every meal and floss each night and if you’re struggling with issues of bad breath, give it a try for a while and you’re bound to see improvement. In a perfect world you’d have time to brush between meetings, phone calls, or errands during the day but we don’t live in a perfect world.

  • When you can’t find time to brush after meals, try flushing your mouth with water and chewing gum that contains xylitol to increase saliva and help keep your teeth clean.
  • Using a toothpick to sweep food debris from your teeth and gums is also a good idea as it keeps bacteria from setting up shop and causing further odor.
  • Be sure to stay hydrated throughout the day as well. Dry mouth can encourage growth of bacteria on the teeth and gums so keep fluids, especially water, on hand throughout the day.
  • You can also try gargling in the morning and at night before bed to limit the amount of bacteria in your mouth, especially in the hard to reach places.
  • Pay special attention when brushing and be sure to brush the back of your tongue, the roof of your mouth and your cheeks; bacteria doesn’t only live on your teeth!

Some of these home remedies are obvious but we often forget that the basics are usually the best place to start when attempting to improve our health. These remedies aren’t meant to treat any disease and you should have regular checkups with your dentist to be sure there isn’t a more serious problem with your teeth or gums beyond odor. Share with us any home remedies for bad breath you’ve tried, we’d love to hear them and check out our website with an entire section on tooth care!
