Cardamom is a spice belonging to the family Zingiberaceae. The plant is native to India, Bhutan, Indonesia and Nepal.
The plant is useful for curing urinary infections like cystitis, nephritis and gonorrhea.
Cardamom has aphrodisiac properties and is used for impotence, erectile dysrlfunction and premature ejaculation.
PREVENTS COLON CANCER
Cardamom provides an impressive source of fiber. Recent studies suggest the benefits of high fiber diet in colon cancer.
Fiber reduces the contact time of toxins in the stool to the colon and speed up their elimination.
LOWERS BLOOD PRESSURE
Cardamom is an amazing source of potassium. Recent studies suggest that a diet high in potassium may be equally as beneficial in lowering bloodpressure as a low sodium one.
Cardamom can prevent anemia as it is a substantial source of iron.
Iron is necessary for the transport of oxygen to the tissues and an essential component of hemoglobin.
Deficiency of iron can lead to anemia which is characterised by fatigue, irritability and shortness of breath.
