Cardamom is a powerful healer, and in India, she is considered the queen of spices. You’ve probably already supported yourself with cardamom through various dishes over the years as she makes her way into recipes all over the world from the Middle East to Northern Europe. Famed for her unmistakable sweet yet smoky flavor, cardamom has also made her way into our Warm Feelings™ saffron latte. Although we love her flavor profile, the real reason she was one of our draft picks was her insane healing properties. Like many of nature’s master healers, cardamom is not a one hit wonder, and she supports many of our body’s complex internal systems from digestion to dental to emotional balance. Read on for details on a few of her royal duties and the way she devotes herself to our health.
It’s often used as a dental healer for its fresh-mouth-feeling. Cardamom actually heals infections and can prevent cavities due to its antimicrobial properties.
Heart Healing & Detoxification
Its high levels of antioxidants make it an amazing support for cardiac health and it has also demonstrated to remove toxins from the blood.
Congestion & Cold
Not only does cardamom treat the symptoms of cold and flu, it actively reduces excess mucus from your system.
Literally used for thousands of years as a digestion aid, research also shows that cardamom supports and heals our digestive system — and can even treat stomach ulcers.
Anxious behaviors have been proven to decrease with the use of cardamom extract. Many attribute this to its high antioxidant quality that can balance the emotional body.
As we said, the queen of spices is a multi-talented leader in spice medicine. If you’re needing some extra support in the aforementioned areas, organic cardamom powder is featured in our Warm Feelings™ saffron latte products.
