(KPLC) Holiday dinner is probably about the last place you could expect to find a healthy boost from ingredients, but there are actually several holiday spices that provide unique health benefits.
Clinical nutritionist and chiropractor, Dr. Eric Snow, says you probably do not even realize you are doing your body good: "There are some health benefits to a lot of the foods that we use, especially in the spices."
Let's start with peppermint. Dr. Snow says it relieves pressure from sinus congestion and helps with stomach woes.
"Have some peppermint tea or even something with some peppermint oil in it to help relieve an acidy stomach or indigestion," he said.
