Ground cumin could be considered a secret weapon in leading a healthy lifestyle. The sweet and spicy seed boasts antioxidants that aid in natural digestion and increase immunity. This spice is also a rich source of vitamins, minerals and nutrients, including iron, calcium, zinc, phosphorous, and vitamins A, K, C, E and B6.
Cumin comes from the flowering plant cuminum cyminum (a member of the parsley family) and can be eaten whole or (more commonly) ground into a powder and added to soups, stews, broths and marinades. Its distinct, savory flavor, which tends to be more potent when eaten whole, is a staple in the Indian and Middle Eastern regions, as well as Latin America and Northern Africa.
The small, ribbed seed (similar in size to a grain of rice) is very low in saturated fats, sodium and cholesterol. But it offers essential oils beneficial in treating a multitude of ailments including:
- Irritable bowel syndrome, bloating and gas
- Anemia, diabetes, breast and colon cancers
- Asthma and other respiratory issues by eliminating phlegm and mucus
- Skin disorders such as hemorrhoids, boils, rashes and pimples
Cumin also has detoxifying agents that help remove toxins from the body, help with bone density, increases cognitive performance, relieves stress and anxiety, and prevents premature aging signs such as wrinkles and sagging skin.
