Benefits of Cumin seeds

Posted by Elizebath Bijoy Sunday, March 6, 2011

Cumin seeds lso known as jeera have been extensively used in culinary preparations in the Indian subcontinent since ages. Here are its varied advantages: 

It's a rich source of iron and hence beneficial for anaemics as well as lactating mothers and pregnant women, who need iron more than others.

It is a great aid in digestion and prevents indigestion, flatulence, diarrhoea, nausea and morning sickness.

For immediate relief from acidity, chew a pinch of raw cumin seeds.

Cumin seeds have antiseptic properties and aid in curing common colds.

It prevents cough formation, which collects in the respiratory system. Since it is supposed to be hot, it dries up all the mucous.

It is beneficial to sip on a concoction of cumin seeds and water. Boil a handful of cumin seeds along with water. Drinking this water wards off common colds, while keeping the digestive system on track. Many South-Indian households, drink only jeera-pani instead of sipping on plain boiled water.
