Italian food aficionados will be happy to know that one of the most beloved herbs in Italian cooking, oregano, has been ranked the top antioxidant herb in the battle against aging and disease. In fact, oregano and other herbs are more powerful antioxidants than fruits and vegetables, say researchers at the US Department of Agriculture. One tablespoon of oregano, for example, has the same antioxidant activity as one apple. Other powerful herbs are dill, thyme, rosemary and peppermint. Next time you're preparing a meal, sprinkle these herbs instead of salt and pepper, or make a healthful herbal tea.
