Cumin - Powder

Herbs: Cumin - Powder

Common Name: Cumin
Latin Name: Cuminum Cyminum
Origin: India

From Our Reading and/or Experience:

It is probably not for its nutty, peppery flavor alone that cumin has made it into the stellar ranks of Indian, Middle Eastern and Mexican cooking. This ordinary looking herb is anything but ordinary when it comes to health benefits.

Cumin is a very good source of iron, a mineral that plays many vital roles in the body. Iron is an integral component of hemoglobin, which transports oxygen from the lungs to all body cells, and is also part of key enzyme systems for energy production and metabolism. Additionally, iron is instrumental in keeping your immune system healthy. Iron is particularly important for menstruating women, who lose iron each month. Additionally, growing children and adolescents have increased needs for iron, as do women who are pregnant or lactating.

Cumin is also a good source of manganese and other vitamins and minerals. It has traditionally been noted to benefit the digestive system, and scientific research is beginning to show cumin's age-old reputation. Research has shown that cumin may stimulate the secretion of pancreatic enzymes, compounds necessary for proper digestion and nutrient assimilation.

Special Considerations:

  • We use cumin often in cooking or herbal combinations. Cumin can be used to benefit anyone: men, women (including before, during or after pregnancy, and nursing), and children.
  • As is the case with most herbs, cumin should be stored in a dark, dry and cool place.

From our Mailbox

Hello, I just wanted to take the time to thank you for the service you provide with your herb company. My husband now tells everyone the benefits of herbs. This strikes a lot of people as funny, because my husband is a big ole' country boy type who is a logger. Yes, I can remember the day he turned up his nose at them, but with God's help, he now looks at them differently. Thank you for the company. I share it with anyone who asks about herbs.

We also have found help for our deacon at church who suffers from chronic gout. I had read herbal teas could help with this, so he tried Peppermint tea. He has found some relief for his gout, and tells everyone about it. That's the reason I order so much peppermint. So, once again, I thank you for your service, and I pray that the Lord will continue to help you in this service. Thank you.

PS. The How to Herb Book and The ABC Herbal have been wonderful helps to me.
