Cardamom

Cardamom is a wonderful medicinal spice that has similar health properties as those of cinnamon and ginger. It is rich in minerals such as iron, manganese, calcium, and magnesium. It also contains antiseptic, anesthetic, antispasmodic, antiviral, and antioxidant properties. Cardamom is an excellent spice for the respiratory system and works as a natural expectorant in relieving congestion and phlegm from the lungs and sinus passages. 

Cardamom is also great for the digestive system and stimulates the appetite as well as ease gas, nausea, indigestion, and cramping. It also helps to kill off any food borne bacteria in the digestive tract which helps to protect against food poisoning and gastric distress. Cardamom pods contain a compound called limonene which is usually found in citrus peels and is known to dissolve cholesterol containing gallstones, relive heartburn and gastroesophageal reflux (GERD), and prevent against breast, colon, liver, and stomach cancer. 

Cardamom also contains several compounds that helps to prevent blood clots from forming in the blood stream, making is an important medicinal for those concerned with deep vein thrombosis, lupus, strokes, or pregnancy. It is also a highly beneficial spice for cardiomyopathy, fibromyalgia, vertigo, tinnitus, halitosis, asthma, urinary tract infections, and spasms or convulsions. 

Cardamom works well as a diuretic and can reduce bloating, water retention, swelling, and edema. Cardamom pods can be chewed on in order to relieve tooth and gum pain and prevent infection. Cardamom is often used in sweet and savory dishes and can be prepared as a delicious, warming tea by placing 4 cardamom pods in 2 cups of water and simmer for 30 minutes, sweeten with raw honey if desired. 

Cinnamon, ginger, or cloves can be added to the tea for additional health benefits. Cardamom can be found as whole pods or powdered online or at your local health food or grocery store.
