Cardamom Seeds as an Effective Supplement

Cardamom is an intense, slightly sweet spice, the third most expensive spice in the world because of its many uses as a medicine and as a flavoring in food and drink.

Cardamom contains phytochemicals that have anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties; according to a research, the oil from cardamom seeds was effective in killing several different types of bacteria and fungi due to its ability to damage the cell membrane of certain bacteria.

In another research, it was found cardamom oil showed “antimicrobial activity against almost all test microorganisms”, and a study suggested cardamom oil use as a component in new antimicrobial drugs.

People should not ingest cardamom oil, however cardamom seeds and pods can be used in curries, desserts, meat dishes and in beverages such as coffee and tea, as a supplement for its health benefits.
