For us, we all love going to different places, exploring a new sky, a new life. We love the excitement of awakening to a new world where we can find out about new cultures and cuisines, especially in India where you can see huge diversity in cuisines and dishes. What makes them different is their preparation and the spices used.
With the change in the environment and the food, travelling may bring some issues like bad stomach. There are various reasons like change in time table or quality of the food which can cause discomfort in our body, especially stomach. Luckily India, being the land of spices, has got some natural herbs and spices that can help you to combat digestive problems.
It is important for you to take care of your food because it can spoil your whole trip. Let's explore some herbs/spices that will keep your stomach happy while traveling.
Cardamom or elaichi is a popular spice for adding flavor to your favorite dishes. You may be surprised to know that it is a natural remedy that can help you when life throws something in the way of your digestive system. It acts as an antioxidant, diuretic, antispasmodic and anti-inflammatory agent by easing gas pains and cramps while reducing nausea caused from poor digestion. Use ORCO’S Organic Cardamom.
Adrak/ginger has long been used in India for its ability to treat nausea, bloating, upset stomach and other gut issues. It can be consumed raw, candied, as a tincture or as a tea. It should be avoided by people with gallbladder problems.
Turmeric is effective in lowering the gastric acid secretion and soothing the digestive tract. Its antibacterial and anti-inflammatory helps in reducing stomach pain. It also soothes your digestive tract. The best part? It's pretty easy for anyone with an average kitchen set up to procure it!
Cumin or jeera is an Indian spice that can be used in many different recipes. It will not only help you with indigestion, but it also boosts your immune system! You should use this amazing herb sparingly though because if you consume too much of the stuff, then you might have some side effects to deal with - which means no more cilantro for a while.
If you often suffer from gut infections, then cinnamon or dalchini is a great choice of herb for you because it has prebiotic properties which help to promote the growth of beneficial bacteria that will keep your digestive system healthy and happy.
