Ajwain benefits in weight loss
This spice is said to have one of the most crucial health benefits because it keeps our stomach strong.
Nothing disturbs our daily schedule and normal activities more than an upset stomach. The active enzymes in it release gastric juices which in turn are reported to boost our digestive functions.
As per an informative report, if we eat this spice then it helps us in improving our bowel movement, cleaning our body of all the harmful toxins.
This helps our metabolism. A good metabolism, in turn, enables our body to burn fat effectively. And, this is the key to weight loss. Thus by helping to burn fat, this spice helps in weight loss.
This report suggests eating it raw or as ajwain-water every day if we wish to lose weight quickly. I preferred to have it as ajowan-water.
