In the world of science, there is an assumption that the use of spice plants must have occurred a long time ago, long before the development of agriculture and the transition to a sedentary lifestyle. It probably happened as a result of the use of herbs for medicinal purposes, or it happened simultaneously, because most spice plants are treated as a spice and medicine. Modern research confirms that the substances contained in the organs of spice plants actively affect the human body. Mostly for the digestive and nervous systems.
The lecture will concern the important role played by spices in the daily human diet and the impact they have on our health.
