Ajwain Benefits For Diabetes

8 Ajwain Benefits For Diabetes 

Diabetes is a disease characterized by an increased blood sugar level. It is a lifelong illness that needs to be taken care of properly because, if left untreated, it can lead to serious health complications.

But having diabetes doesn’t mean you can not have a normal life. You can and you should! But it would be best if you took care of a few things to lead a healthy lifestyle.

Ajwain Benefits For Diabetes

In addition to taking your medications regularly, you can also adopt some natural ways to keep your blood sugar levels controlled. One of these natural options is “Ajwain.”

Ajwain can help with weight loss

Since ajwain can aid in digestion and absorption of nutrients, it can help in losing weight effectively. Weight loss contributes to controlling diabetes since obesity is one of the major risk factors for diabetes.

Besides fiber, carom seeds (ajwain) also contain antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties that help metabolism. Diabetic patients often find it difficult to lose weight, but carom seeds can control their health and assist in weight loss. 

Ajwain can reduce high blood pressure

Ajwain has been used in traditional medicine for controlling high blood pressure for many years. The active plant enzyme thymol in ajwain works as a calcium channel blocker which relaxes and expands the blood vessels hence lowering the blood pressure.

People with high blood pressure develop insulin resistance which can progress to diabetes. Therefore, keeping blood pressure in check can help prevent diabetes, according to some studies. 

Ajwain is good for kidney patients 

According to a study conducted by a team at the University of Montreal Hospital Research Center, When kidneys fail, urea builds up in the blood and can cause diabetes.

Ajwain can reduce the risk of kidney damage due to kidney stones because of its antilithiatic properties. 

Ajwain is good for cholesterol

Ajwain seeds, if consumed, can help to lower the bad cholesterol, also called the VLDL, and the LDL and control the good cholesterol levels, also called HDL. These seeds contain a high portion of dietary fibers and fatty acids, contributing to healthy cholesterol levels.

Ajwain is good for digestion 

Active enzymes in ajwain regulate the flow of stomach acids, which can relieve indigestion, bloating, and gas problems. Ajwain can also help to treat peptic ulcers and sores in the esophagus, stomach, and intestines.

Ajwain is a good antibacterial and antifungal 

Ajwain can help relieve infections due to its powerful antiseptic, antimicrobial, and antiparasitic properties; which makes them a perfect treatment for infections that cause cough, cold, ear, or even mouth infection.

It can be used along with prescribed medicines to reap maximum benefits. 

Ajwain is good for coughing 

Ajwain helps soothe the airflow and ease the breathing process, thus giving relief to coughing. Take it in water or add in steam to soothe the throat.

Ajwain maintains blood sugar

Ajwain has been proven to be useful in controlling blood sugar levels.

According to reports from many health experts worldwide, diabetic people have shown marked improvements in their blood sugar levels after regular consumption of ajwain. 

The oil present in carom seeds, commonly known as ajwain oil, inhibits certain enzymes such as alpha-amylase and alpha-glucosidase. These enzymes are required for carbohydrate digestion in the body.

How to take Ajwain for Diabetes 

Let’s now talk about how people with diabetes can consume ajwain.

According to science, you should drink ajwain water daily, but why is it so?

Ajwain water is used by many people worldwide to fasten their weight loss process. Not only does it fasten the weight loss process, but it also is advantageous for people with diabetes. 

Ajwain water, because of its high fiber content, inhibits the breakdown of carbohydrates in your body, hence lowering blood sugar levels.

Ajwain water preparation

Are you wondering how to prepare ajwain water? All you need to do is take water in a saucepan, add a tablespoon full of carom seeds, and mix well. Boil the mixture on a medium flame for 10 minutes or till the water changes its color.

Please switch off the flame, strain it using a filter in a cup, and voila, ajwain water is ready. 

Remember!! You need to take ajwain water when it’s still warm. Only then will it help you lose weight and control your diabetes. 

Besides consuming ajwain water, you can also use ajwain honey or many ajwain seeds (carom seeds) directly. 

  • Ajwain honey is rich in fiber and contains many vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. 
  • Ajwain honey has anti-inflammatory properties. 
  • The high fiber content in Ajwain helps stabilize blood sugar levels and effectively controls diabetes, and causes weight loss. 

When to take ajwain water

Making a habit of drinking water early in the morning has many health benefits, which include improving digestion, decreasing bloating, and causing weight loss.

According to studies, when you consume ajwain water on an empty stomach, it turns on the enzymes in your stomach, which help in better digestion. Better digestion means that acidity and bowel movement troubles will be at bay.

How much ajwain to take in a day

The dosage of Ajwain seeds or carom seeds varies according to the health condition, age, and symptoms.

The general dosage is as follows:

  • Culinary Use (safe dose): 1 to 3 grams per day
  • The therapeutic Dosage is around 2 to 4 grams
  • If you take Ajwain mixed with black salt, the dosage can be from 1 to 2 grams.
  • The appropriate dosage of Ajwain boiled in water is 10 to 100mg.

Ajwain side effects 

Anything taken in excess can result in causing some health complications. 

Excessive Ajwain intake is considered toxic;

  • It can result in fatal poisoning. 
  • Intake of Ajwain supplements might increase the risk of bleeding during and after surgery. Therefore, it is advised to stop the intake of Ajwain 2 weeks before the surgery.
  • Eating up excess Ajwain seeds can cause gas production in the stomach, which leads to acidity and reflux. 
  • Some people are allergic to Ajwain because of thymol, which can cause dizziness, nausea, and vomiting.
  • Excess ajwain can cause inflammation in the mouth, resulting in a burning sensation and mouth ulcers. 
  • Excessive intake of ajwain for pregnant women can be dangerous because it can affect the fetus’s development.

All in all, ajwain has numerous benefits, which makes it ideal to be used in weight loss and controlling diabetes. Diabetic patients have shown a marked improvement after consuming ajwain since it lowers blood sugar levels and maintains them within a narrow range.
