Top 3 "Flat Stomach" Spices probably already know that some herbs and spices are some of the most potent antioxidants on the planet...and they all have unique types of antioxidants, varying health benefits, and some even have properties that help you to get a leaner body...

With that said... here are 3 of the absolute healthiest:

1. This first one is from my good friend, and famous nutritionist, Isabel De Los Rios - author of my favorite nutrition program, The Diet Solution Program


Ginger is a plant that is used as a natural spice and has been used by Chinese herbalists for more than 2,500 years in flavoring foods and part of natural medicines.

One of ginger's biggest "claims to fame" is its ability to quickly calm the digestive system to relieve distress and discomfort from gas pains and cramping. It also has been used to relieve nausea from motion sickness, morning sickness or the occasional "I just ate the wrong thing and it's killing my stomach!".

Ginger has also been used in the treatment and prevention of inflammatory conditions like painful arthritis and it's a wonderful cold and flu fighter.

So we know ginger is definitely a great food to keep the body super healthy, but does it have the ability to assist the body in burning fat? Yes, ginger root has been found to help accelerate the metabolism and assists in reducing stomach bloating by helping food digest properly.

For me, any food that will assist my digestion and keep my stomach feeling good is a food that is well worth adding to my meal plans. I also really enjoy the delicious taste of ginger and love adding it to several different recipes. I try to add ginger to almost any fish dishes.

2. Turmeric:

Turmeric is thought by many nutritionists and health professionals to be quite possibly the healthiest spice on the planet. It is also thought to be one of the most powerful anti-cancer spices.
