Cardamom: The Ancient Spice with More than 10 Health Benefits

You’re definitely wrong if you’re thinking that cardamom is some kind of pretentious, exotic spice. However, there’s hardly any chance that you haven’t tried it at least once. Despite its glory as an “inaccessible” product!

It turns out that this spice has a lot to surprise us with as it’s said to be quite beneficial. Here’s at least 5 of the advantages that you could get:

  1. Have a fresh breath

Don’t forget that “A bad mood is like the bad breath. Both are wrong to inflict onto others.” So, as mood and breath often go together, don’t allow anything to spoil your mood! Indians, who use cardamom a lot, usually chew its leaves or the kernel itself after a meal. This way they don’t have to worry about having a bad breath.

  1. Beat depression

Have you ever heard of Ayurveda? If no, let me tell you it’s an alternative medicine system that’s actually quite famous in India. Ayurveda treatments combine internal healing with specific diet, lots of herbs and meditation. So, according to its theories cardamom is able to fight depression, anxiety and tiredness. Nothing stops you from trying!

  1. Have an aphrodisiac handy

Although they say that “intelligence is the ultimate aphrodisiac” it’s true that most herbs might act as ones, too. If you happen to enjoy drinking tea, then you should definitely try cardamom tea. Or at least give it to someone you want to seduce! It’s thought that this special infusion can increase men’s sexual power and help their (vital) functions.

  1. Improve digestion

There’s some researches which show that cardamom has properties similar to those of ginger. And you know how good ginger might be, right? Here’s why the little cardamom seeds or even its powder may be able to help digestion. You can also try taking it as tea, again. It’s all up to you!

Now, when we are ‘bombarded’ with viruses like Covid-19 and the regular autumn-winter flu, we desperately need to protect ourselves. Even if you don’t believe it, it’s said that the piquant spice might soothe the symptoms. Or even prevent them! Plus, cardamom tea may be quite effective against bronchitis and rough cough. So, be sure to have it in the kitchen cupboard.

Let’s stop here and learn something interesting about cardamom, which doesn’t have to do with health in general, shall we? Well, an intriguing fact is that cardamom lines up right behind the two most expensive herbs in the world – saffron and vanilla.
