Indians love to eat! The diverse cuisines from different parts of the country make for delightful and flavoursome meals. One of the widely used spices in Indian households is Jeera. It is one of the many spices that is added to the preparation. Mostly for the distinct, nutty, earthy and hot flavour.
Besides adding aroma and flavour to the dish, Jeera also has some medicinal benefits. Since time immemorial, these tiny seeds have been used in traditional medicine for enhancing the digestion process, losing weight and treating other food-borne infections.
One of the most common medicinal uses of Jeera is to cure acidity. But first let’s understand acidity. Acidity or acid reflux is a condition when excess acid is produced in your stomach. For the food to be digested, our stomach produces acid which breaks down the food and aids in digestion. However, sometimes the acid is secreted in excess and that leads to acidity.
