The Schwartz company has been around since the 1800’s, making spices way before Frank Herbert was even born. With Herbert’s novel Dune being turned into a blockbuster film, this is surely the perfect time for these two commodities to be married together?
Schwartz may not mine Dune’s fictional drug Melange (aka “Spice”) but they sell a few spices that give you greater vitality; cayenne pepper and cardamom increase your energy levels, cinnamon can provide a quick pick-me-up, and nutmeg may improve your mood. Mix that with vitamin B12, vitamin C, vitamin D3, and Omega-3, and you’ve got something that’s similar to Melange and less likely to attract sandworms!
Of course we at Oddball Times are not health experts. This article should not be construed as medical advice. Like Melange, taking nutmeg in high quantities can produce hallucinations but it may also poison you and consuming too much cinnamon may cause liver damage. No word on the internet if excessive consumption of either spice turns your eyes blue though!
