You may be familiar with cardamom as a spice for cooking. Cardamon, known as the queen of spices, is warm and aromatic with a unique intense, slightly sweet, and floral flavor that makes it perfect for sweet and savory recipes as well as for teas. Native to southern India and Indonesia, cardamom was used by ancient Greeks to soothe digestive issues and is a common herb in both Chinese medicine and Ayurvedic medicine. Cardamom is an excellent source of Magnesium with 1 tablespoon providing 80% of the recommended daily value. Studies have found that cardamom has antioxidant, antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, diuretic, and antibacterial effects that benefit a variety of health concerns.
In traditional Chinese medicine cardamom transforms dampness, moves qi, stops vomiting and warms the middle energizer. Research studies have found that cardamon helps to prevent cavities, improves bad breath, promotes healthy blood pressure, supports healthy blood glucose levels, promotes healthy digestion, benefits stomach health, and may promote easy breathing.
