Product Description

Cumin belongs to the parsley family of herbs and spices, the same family that contains anise, caraway, coriander, dill, fennel, and parsley. The parsley family contains some unique phytochemicals, such as phthalides and polyacetylenes which show cancer-protective activity and anti-inflammatory properties.

Cumin is widely used in traditional Ayurvedic medicine in India for the treatment of dyspepsia and diarrhea. It is an astringent herb that is recognized as an appetite stimulant, and helps control flatulence. Cumin has antispasmodic activity and helps with minor digestive problems. Cumin seeds are noted to be rich in important minerals such as calcium, magnesium, iron, and zinc, as well as some of the B vitamins.

The essential oil of cumin has the potential for controlling bacterial diseases. Its oil is rich in terpenoids, such as cuminaldehyde, and has a strong bacteriocidal activity, against both gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria. Cumin extract has shown an inhibitory activity against H. pylori infection. An extract of cumin, or turmeric, is very efficient at killing Helicobacter pylori. Cumin also has significant antifungal activity.
