In addition, it has been proven that we tend to salt less when adding spices. We therefore avoid the famous water retention linked to the excessive addition of salts in our food.
It has been proven: a well-seasoned dish necessarily has more flavor and you don't necessarily have to over-serve yourself. Spices such as cinnamon or cayenne pepper have appetite suppressant properties, so should be included if you want to ingest smaller amounts.
