What are the best uses of Elaichi or Cardamom

Improves digestion:

Elaichi is carminative in nature and helps speed up digestion, reduces inflammation of the stomach lining,
fights on heart burn and nausea. It is known to make smoother the mucous membranes, making it function better
thereby relieving the symptoms of acidity and an upset stomach. According to Ayurvedic medicine
it also reduces the water and air properties in the stomach for making smooth digestion for healthy life.

Relieves acidity:

The essential oils in elaichi help strengthen the mucosal lining of your stomach, making elaichi a great remedy for acidity. Another way it helps is by increasing the amount of saliva you secrete. On chewing the pod, it releases a slew of essential oils that stimulate your salivary glands, which in-turn stimulate your stomach lining to work better, improving your appetite and reduces the amount of acidity you experience. Elaichi’s essential oils also impart a cooling flavour and sensation that help reduce the burning you feel during an attack of acidity.
Tip: Chew on elaichi regularly after every meal. The best way to keep acidity at bay is to avoid sitting right after you have eating; instead walk around a bit while chewing on the elaichi pod and you should feel much better.

Regularizes your heart rate:
Apart from minerals like potassium, calcium and magnesium, cardamom is a gold mine for essential electrolytes.
One of the main components of your blood, body fluids and cells is potassium. With its abundant supply of this essential mineral ealichi helps regularise your heart rate
and keeps your blood pressure under control. Keep drinking Elaichi Tea daily twice for healthy benefits.
