Health Benefits of Cardamom

By Madhusudhan Tammisetti

Cardamom is one of the most expensive spices in the world. It plays an essential role in Indian cuisine and culture, where it first gained popularity. Elettaria cardamom, also known as elaichi in India, belongs to the Zingiberaceae family. Cardamom has a sweet flavor but is a key ingredient in spicy dishes.

Cardamom has a number of health benefits, including aiding digestion, preventing cardiovascular disease, managing bacterial infections, supporting dental health, lowering blood pressure, and managing diabetes. Stimulating hunger, encouraging healthy living, controlling asthma, alleviating hiccups, inducing sleep, and decreasing blood pressure are other benefits.

The spice's origins may be traced back to India. Cardamom is now grown in a number of Asian Pacific nations and Central America that surpassed India as the leading supplier. The plant's seeds grow in pods are processed into the spice and are used to make cardamom. Cardamom is currently used in a wide range of sweet and savory dishes, giving additional opportunities to reap the benefits for which it has become famous.

Good for Longevity

Although aging is unavoidable, you may take measures to slow down the rate of metabolic processes. One method is to effectively eliminate toxins created by the metabolism of different chemicals from the body, reducing the amount of time they stay with healthy cells. Cardamom improves the liver's efficiency.

Good for Sleep

When taken as an essential oil and diffused in an oil diffuser, cardamom is an effective solution for promoting sleep in those who are stressed or anxious. Its aroma helps you relax and sleep better by lowering cortisol levels, improving mood, and calming you down.

May Help in Managing Bacterial Infections

It has anti-bacterial qualities, which may help minimize the risk of severe diseases caused by bacterial contamination, for instance, food poisoning. Cardamom essential oil may be used topically to heal injuries that may get infected. Thus it can be helpful in more ways than simply cooking.

Relieve Hiccups

Hiccups are considered to be caused by muscular diaphragm spasms, which drive the lungs upward, forcing air out. Cardamom possesses antispasmodic qualities that help relieve smooth muscular spasms. Many instances of hiccups are cured as a result of this, while a few cases are considered intractable.

Stimulate Appetite

Cardamom has been used to promote an appetite for ages, and it's particularly beneficial for making food appealing after an illness or during a recuperation period. It also encourages the production of saliva, which aids digestion.

Oral Health

Cardamom kills some of the most virulent germs known to man thanks to its anti-bacterial properties. It increases salivary flow, which aids in the cleaning of teeth after eating, lowering the incidence of dental caries.
