Delicious
(NaturalNews) Consuming large amounts of sweets can wreak all sorts of havoc on a body. Of course, there is the obesity issue, in which sweets can contribute to a weight problem. The effects of sugar can also cause health problems, such as throwing the body's system for sugar regulation out of whack or making a person more susceptible to cavities. Eating a great deal of sugary foods also makes the body crave more of the same so that it is hard to cut the sugar habit. However, the below spices and herbs can help satisfy a sugar craving with no harmful side effects.

Fenugreek

Though less well-known than some other spices, fenugreek is one that anyone with a sweet tooth should be aware of. With its pleasant aroma of burnt maple sugar and delicious maple taste, fenugreek is the perfect way to please a sugar craving. It has also been shown to help lower blood sugar levels in those people who use it with regularity.

Cinnamon

Often used in dishes around the world, cinnamon is a highly popular spice that can help stop a sugar craving in its track. While the spice already has a slightly sweet taste that can satisfy a sugar craving, it also has other important health benefits. A benefit that is particularly helpful for those who crave sugar is cinnamon's ability to reduce the glycemic level of the foods that it is eaten with. This can be welcome news for diabetics.

Nutmeg

Though especially popular during the fall when it is often paired with pumpkin pie, nutmeg has lots of great benefits. In addition to its ability to help bring back comforting memories, nutmeg also helps naturally boost the serotonin levels in the body. This can help keep carb cravings in check.

Cardamom

Light and slightly sweet, cardamom is a popular herb, and for good reason. Some people think the spice resembles a spicier version of cinnamon, and it has a vanilla-lemon aroma that makes it truly unique. It is a highly versatile herb and can be added to yogurts, smoothies, puddings and oatmeal.

Ginger

Though ginger has a strong taste that is not at all sweet, it is famed for helping to curb a sweet tooth. It is spicy with strong undertones of sweetness that make it the perfect spice to pair with other spices such as cinnamon, nutmeg and cardamom, making it the perfect spice to bake with. Using ginger not only helps stop sugar cravings but can also help soothe the stomach.

Using the above spices and herbs in cooking and at the table can help curb a sweet tooth naturally.
