More health benefits of this lovely spice
* Aids Digestion-Thymol, a compound in cumin, is known to stimulate the glands that secrete acids, bile and enzymes. These enzymes are responsible for the proper digestion of food in the stomach and intestines.
Because cumin seeds are a high-fiber food, they work to stimulate the digestive system and fight constipation. Research also suggests that cumin seeds can help to improve IBS symptoms. When patients with IBS were given 20 drop of cumin essential oil every day, they experienced an improvement of symptoms including abdominal pain, nausea, painful defection, changes in stool consistency and presence of mucus in stool. Patients received 10 drops of cumin essential oil in the morning and 10 at night in a glass of warm water, 15 minutes after a meal.
* Boosts Immune System
Cumin seeds have antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties. Research published in the International Journal of Molecular Sciences found that cumin and other spices, including clove, oregano, thyme and cinnamon, possess significant antibacterial and antifungal activities. That’s why cumin seeds can be used to prevent food spoilage caused by pathogens and harmful fungi.
Cumin seeds can also increase your vitamin C intake. The presence of vitamin C in cumin seeds allows the spice to serve as an immune system booster. Vitamin C is beneficial to individuals whose immune system has been weakened due to stress. Considering stress has become a common condition in our society, a sufficient intake of vitamin C can serve as an ideal tool for one’s overall health.
