UNDATED (WHDH) -- Want to spice up your life?

Open the kitchen cabinet!

Three great tasting spices also have some serious health-boosting benefits.

Cinnamon lowers "bad" cholesterol and keeps blood sugar levels in check. A half teaspoon of it a day lowers your risk of heart disease.

Peppermint relieves stomach problems - including bloating, nausea and cramps.

Last but not least - Nutmeg. If you battle insomnia, sprinkle some nutmeg in your tea -- it helps induce drowsiness. It also helps to regulate your digestive system.
