Cloves may reduce both fat deposition and insulin resistance.
Clove is one of the many key spices used in Indian cuisine. It is also found in many seasonal recipes in the United States. I love adding a dash to my eggnog. A little dab of ground clove goes a long way to maximizing the taste it adds to any recipe. For years, it has also been recommended as a potential remedy for multiple ailments to include diabetes and obesity. Beyond the great flavor, many of these health claims are poorly supported by research.
