Health Benefits of Cumin

By Madhusudhan Tammisetti

Humans for millennia have consumed cumin. The earliest Egyptians used cumin in mummification processes and diet. Cumin seeds are the seeds of a flowering plant that are dried and used for a variety of applications. Cumin belongs to the family of parsley plants. It's a versatile spice that may be found in a variety of dishes. It has been used medicinally in Greece for about 5,000 years. Its origins may be traced back to the Mediterranean and Iran. Cumin has a distinct taste and a delectable scent. It's also popular in Asian and Mexican cuisines. Also, the Greeks kept cumin on dining tables.

Cumin seeds are available in a multitude of sizes and varieties. It may be ground or consumed in its natural state. It is fragrant due to the high content of essential oil. While cooked, it is occasionally toasted to unleash its characteristic aroma. Cumin may be found in a variety of Dutch cheese mixes and a classic French baguette. It's also powdered and mixed with other spices to make curry powder, which is quite popular. Cumin seeds offer a wide range of antibacterial and antifungal activities. Cumin was popular as a love spice in the Middle Ages. Its seeds have a wide range of medicinal and non-medical applications. Cumin was used to brighten one's complexion and make them seem paler in Ancient Rome.

May Help in Reducing Stress

Animal studies have shown that feeding cumin to animals for a period of time improves memory and reduces stress-related biochemical markers. Human studies have yet to be carried out. Cumin also decreases iron deficiency, which is commonly linked to poor memory, suggesting that it might aid in the treatment of cognitive disorders.

Weight Loss

For years, elders have advocated cumin seeds for a healthy metabolism. Cumin may be consumed with tea and used more often in meals to supply important nutrients to the body without overeating. Cumin powder is used in most Asian recipes, and it is often eaten raw or roasted with yogurt in Asian nations like India.

Good for Digestion

Cumin has been used to treat flatulence in humans for millennia. It's considered to contain a chemical that causes the salivary glands to produce more saliva, which aids in the treatment of indigestion. Cumin also functions as a carminative, easing gastrointestinal discomfort. It's commonly taken with a cup of warm water to help with stomachaches.

Vitamin A, Vitamin B6, Vitamin C, and Vitamin E are all found in abundance in cumin seeds. Thiamine, iron, niacin, riboflavin, copper, manganese, potassium, calcium, and other minerals can be found in this spice. Cumin is a superfood that is high in healthy fats and amino acids.
