Lovneet Batra, in her “sip of the day” segment, shares some little-known benefits of ajwain water.
Ajwain can help control high blood pressure and also protect against disease-causing organisms.
Ajwain is one of the spices that are always readily available on our kitchen shelves. It also happens to be one of the most common ingredients in traditional Indian dishes. From pakoras to parathas to Amritsari chole, this is a go-to ingredient. Some prefer to add a dash of ajwain to their tea. And, to give us more guidance on the spice, nutritionist Lovneet Batra is here with her “sip of the day” segment. Today, she is talking about the benefits of ajwain.
And people who struggle to control high blood pressure should keep an eye on the spots. According to the nutritionist, ajwain exhibits antihypertensive properties that work well to keep blood sugar spikes in check.
The monsoon season is synonymous with infections such as malaria, cholera, dengue and chikungunya, among others. Lovneet Batra explains that ajwain water “has antiseptic, antimicrobial, and antiparasitic properties,” making it a perfect antidote to infections, especially during the monsoons.
Menstrual cramps are throbbing or cramping pains in the lower abdomen. But ajwain water can also help you get rid of this pain. It acts as a “nerve tonic” so it can lessen the intensity of menstrual cramps during menstruation.
Have a look:
In case you continue to struggle with digestion problems during the monsoons, Lovneet Batra has another home remedy to your rescue. All you need is 1 teaspoon of sauf (fennel), 1 teaspoon of jeera (cumin), and 1/2 stalk of lemongrass.
Step 1: Add water to a pan, add all the ingredients and let it infuse for a few minutes.
Step 2: Strain the tea and serve hot.
The natural cooling property of lemongrass tea, says the nutritionist, helps calm the intestine and improves the digestion process. While fennel seeds relieve constipation, indigestion and bloating, cumin seeds stimulate the secretion of the gastric glands and keep digestive problems at bay.
