Medicinal plants, vegetables and spices with high antioxidant content,


The pizza spice oregano has the highest antioxidant activity of all spices studied.


The antioxidant effect of oregano is superior to that of other fruits or vegetables. Oregano has 42 times more antioxidant activity than apples, 30 times more than potatoes and still 4 times more than blueberries. One tablespoon of oregano contains the same amount of antioxidants as a medium-sized apple. Problem, who swallows a tablespoon of oregano?


Other herbs such as dill, peppermint or basil also have a very high antioxidant content. Antioxidants "catch" free radicals and prevent an excess of these molecules. They can help prevent cancer.
