Cardamom is a spice with an intense, slightly sweet flavor that some people compare to mint. Originated in India but is available worldwide today and used in both sweet and savory recipes.
The seeds, oils and extracts of cardamom are thought to have impressive medicinal properties and have been used in traditional medicine for centuries.
The spice may lower blood pressure due to its diuretic effect, meaning it can promote urination to remove water that builds up in your body, for example around your heart.
You can simply include cardamom in your soups and stews or even baked items to keep your blood pressure levels in check.
Cardamom contains vitamin C, which is a powerful antioxidant. It improves blood circulation throughout the body.
You can chew on this pod but if you find the flavour to be too strong, then as easy way to use cardamom is to scoop out these seeds and crush them gently. This can then be added to your daily cup of tea, coffee, milk or simply has with a glass of warm water and honey.
