Organic Herb Blends are best known for turning ordinary foods into mouthwatering delicacies. But herbs and spices also contain a vast array of powerful phytochemical compounds or phytonutrients, which are protective chemicals found in foods of plant origin.
It is well known that plants produce phytochemicals to protect themselves; however, recent research shows that they may protect humans as well.
Herbs and spices are thought to contain particularly beneficial phytochemicals and are now added to a list of potential beneficial effects on human health.
The Agricultural Research Service, U.S. Department of Agriculture lists ways phytonutrients may protect human health:
- Serve as antioxidants
- Enhance immune response
- Enhance cell-to-cell communication
- Alter estrogen metabolism
- Convert to Vitamin A
- Cause cancer cells to die (apoptosis)
- Repair DNA damage caused by smoking and other toxic exposures
- Detoxify carcinogens through the activation of cytocrome P450 and Phase II enzyme systems
