Cumin (Cuminum cyminum) is one of the best herbs for supporting healthy digestion without aggravating pitta. A common household spice, its Sanskrit name literally means "promoting digestion." In addition to providing flavor to food, cumin enkindles the digestive fire, promotes healthy absorption, and eliminates natural toxins in the GI tract. The seeds are often chewed after meals and are especially useful for calming excess vata in the lower abdomen and in promoting a comfortable post dining experience.*
Suggested Use: Steep 1 teaspoon per one cup of hot water and strain. Drink tea once or twice daily, or as directed by your health practitioner. You may also use as a culinary spice.
