Spice up your health

Jan 13, 2017

Many of us think of spices as just ingredients for cooking. But for centuries, some have believed in their medicinal powers. And science is proving some of that ancient lore to be correct. This week on WRVO's health and wellness show "Take Care," hosts Lorraine Rapp and Linda Lowen speak with Natasha MacAller, the author of the book "Spice Health Heroes: Unlock the Power of Spice for Flavor and Wellbeing," about the basics of spices and their health properties.

More of this interview can be heard on "Take Care," WRVO's health and wellness show, Saturday at 6:30 a.m. and Sunday at 6:30 p.m. Support for this story comes from the Health Foundation for Western and Central New York.
