Herbs + Spices that Boost Metabolism

Herbs and spices have been used for thousands of years in ancient forms of medicine to help balance the body, mind, and spirit, and to prevent and treat various health conditions. Functional medicine also uses this approach to address various aspects of health, from digestion, immunity, and blood sugar regulation, to overall hormone balance.
