Cumin is very rich in iron and magnesium and therefore could be used as an add-on natural remedy to treat conditions like iron deficiency anaemia, stress, anxiety and fatigue. The long term intake might also prevent cancer.
Cumin is famous for its effects on the digestive tract. It proves a great fighter against diarrhoea, flatulence, indigestion, nausea and vomiting.
How to use the cumin seeds?
The best way of taking advantage of its miraculous properties is to make a cumin seeds tea.
Here's my recipe:
Put to boil one or more cups (~250 - 300ml each) of water and add one heaped tablespoon of cumin seeds to each cup of water; boil them together for about 10 to 15 minutes or until the boiling liquid is turning brownish; leave it to cool down until just slightly warm and drink 1 - 2 cups of unsweetened tea per day (kids could use half of this amount). As a note: excessive use of cumin tea can promote constipation.
