01/5Cumin Vs Carrom seeds tea
To achieve your weight loss goal, it is crucial to be consistent and practice healthy eating habits. One cannot ignore these two things when trying to get into their dream shape. But on the journey to lose weight, sometimes even little things can make a huge difference. There are several time-tested remedies that have been known for accelerating the fat burning process. One such remedy is carom and cumin seeds tea.
02/5The two spices
Both carrom (Ajwain) and cumin (jeera) seeds belong to the same family and are commonly available in every Indian kitchen. They are widely used in curries to enhance the flavour of the food. Both the spices possess medicinal properties and have been used since centuries to prepare medicines for treating different kinds of ailments.
03/5How these spices help to lose weight
Ajwain has a strong aroma and distinct taste. It is rich in antioxidants which helps to flush out toxins from the body and is packed with two active compounds- thymol and carvacrol, which are known to be helpful in losing weight. Ajwain also helps release gastric juices in the stomach that may aid digestion. Cumin or jeera contain compounds that release digestive enzymes that may soothe the digestion process and provide relief from digestive health concerns. It also keeps the gut health, which is crucial for weight loss.
04/5How to make this tea
Soak half a teaspoon of ajwain and 1 teaspoon jeera in a glass of warm water and leave it overnight. Strain the seeds using a strainer and lukewarm concoction before drinking it. You can add some lemon juice and honey to improve its taste. You can also make the tea by infusing the seeds for two hours in the morning, rather than keeping it overnight.
05/5The bottom line
Swap your regular cup of coffee or tea with this special jeera and ajwain tea in the morning to speed up your weight loss process. Do not drink this tea more than once in a day. Also, do not add a large amount of cumin and carom seeds in your water as it might not be good for health. Moreover, if you are pregnant, breastfeeding or suffering from any chronic disease consult your doctor before adding this tea in your diet.
