Immunity boosting spices

by Organic Condiments on August 23, 2021

From curry to tandoori and everything in between, Indian spices are sought after by chefs around the world. These aromatic ingredients add flavour as well as a number of health benefits that may or may not be known.

They help fight infections like cold and flu faster, heal wounds more quickly, keep your organs functioning normally such as kidneys, liver etc., maintain sugar levels so you don't become diabetic (a major problem across India) while keeping blood pressure at bay. Finally, these little spice jewels also help in protecting our immune system against illness which is especially critical during flu season.

Immunity boosting spices

Let’s dig deeper and learn more about these immunity boosters spices. Here is the list of spices:


Turmeric is the most commonly used spice in cooking and has been known for its healing properties. It contains Curcumin, a phyto-derivative with anti-inflammatory/anti bacterial/antiseptic properties which have helped people recover from many conditions including coughs and colds to respiratory problems such as sinus or upper respiratory issues like bronchial asthma! A recent study was conducted on turmeric that proved it helps provide instant relief of symptoms while also being an excellent immunity booster.


Black pepper is the spice that can do it all! It's an antioxidant, antimicrobial and a gastroprotective agent. All of these properties help to keep colds at bay by cleaning your chest from inside out with instant relief for any respiratory infection you may have been experiencing due to congestion or other illness. Black Pepper won't fight off coronavirus like ginger will but including this in your diet will prepare your body to fight against the common illness like sore throat and cold.


Cinnamon is an aromatic spice with many common kitchen uses that can also help you get rid of cold. Did you know it has antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal properties? Cinnamon helps in dealing with infections, respiratory problems as well as boosting immune systems. It contains rich antioxidants like polyphenols and proanthocyanidins which are essential for maintaining blood sugar levels - cinnamon tea should be a part of your daily life especially during this pandemic time!


Clove is well-known for its ability to combat all of the pathogens that threaten us in winter. Cloves are richly endowed with antioxidants, which help build high resistance and immunity levels. They also contain a compound called ‘Eugenol’, an anti-inflammatory agent as well as antibacterial properties against common infections like cold or even certain types of cancer cells!

Cloves have been used since ages because they offer long lasting relief from many ailments while being completely natural with no side effects other than gastrointestinal distress if taken in excess. Clove can also be used topically on wounds such as burns where it has quickly proven itself to be effective at healing them faster without pain.


Nutmeg is a warming spice which means it's ideal for savory dishes as well as sweets. It has many health benefits and can be used to help with issues such as insomnia, weight loss, or joint pain relief - just some of the perks. 

Nutmeg also contains strong antibacterial properties that will boost your immunity by helping you get better faster when sick. You may have heard about ground nutmeg being mixed in hot milk with honey before bed; this decoction helps increase immunity within one’s body while curing any cold symptoms quickly without long-term side effects like antibiotics do (mostly decreasing good bacteria).


Cumin seeds are a global spice that have numerous benefits on the human body. Cumin has a multitude of health properties, including being anti-inflammatory and antioxidant rich as well as keeping your blood sugar healthy,

Cumin is also an excellent source for iron which boosts energy levels and fortifies bones among other things. When boiled with water, some people feel it tastes like soap or dirt, but it's actually very good for skin while simultaneously invigorating taste buds with its citrusy yet tangy flavor. It’s great in dishes to add depth such as curries or soups where you need something more than just salt & pepper.


Fenugreek is a well-known herb that acts as a natural anti-oxidant and strengthens the immune system. It can also be found in many of our favorite foods, such as curry or chutney.

Fenugreek seeds are perfect for tea because they have an undeniably earthy taste with just enough bitterness to give you some extra zest when blended into your iced beverage. With dried leaves used for cooking purposes, it's no wonder fenugreek plays dual role throughout history: both its culinary uses and medicinal benefits make it one versatile little spice we should all keep close at hand - from adding flavor to boosting our immune systems in times like these.


The spices in your kitchen cabinet can help improve and strengthen your immune system. All it takes is adding these spices into your daily diet.
