Does Jeera help in acidity? Learn all about the Ayurvedic Solution

October 07, 2022

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.

Some common symptoms of acidity include:

- Burping
- Burning sensation
- Heartburn
- Belching
- Extreme discomfort in the stomach area

 Usually acidity does not require immediate medical attention. Most cases of acidity (unless severe) can be resolved with some home remedies. Jeera has always been used to treat digestive problems. The benefits of Jeera are listed with great detail in Ayurveda as well.

Nutritious value of Jeera

The immense amounts of nutrients in Jeera seeds include iron, manganese, magnesium, calcium, phosphorus, copper, zinc and potassium and a rich array of vitamins A, C, E, K, B1, B2, B3, B5 and B6. It is extremely low on fats, sodium and cholesterol. The potent antioxidants present in Jeera seeds boost healing health benefits.

Jeera water- home remedy

In a pan, add one cup of water and one teaspoon of Jeera seeds to boil well. Let it cool down and then drink the Jeera water in the morning on an empty stomach. Although it is a good practice to drink Jeera water everyday, here is something you can do when acidity strikes you in the middle of the day! Have Gas-O-Fast Asli Jeera to counter the acidity. The activated Jeera in Gas-O-Fast solution is formulated with 100% Ayurvedic mix and (wait for it) leaves you with a refreshing aftertaste.
