Science has known about the properties of cardamom for a long time, but few people use all the useful qualities of this spice, cardamom is called the "royal spice" for a reason.
Thus, one of the most popular uses of cardamom is the cleansing of toxins. Cardamom has this effect because of its diuretic properties.
At the same time, cardamom reduces the content of bad cholesterol and triglycerides in the blood, as well as improves glucose tolerance in diabetic patients.
Interestingly, cardamom helps get rid of abdominal fat, which is good for heart and vascular health.
Studies have proven that cardamom powder taken as a dietary supplement prevents the accumulation of fat in the abdominal area.
Cardamom's fat-burning properties help reduce blood cholesterol. This is especially important for those who have high cholesterol and, as a result, are overweight.
A study involving pre-diabetic and obese women found that green cardamom powder reduced low-density lipoprotein and triglyceride levels.
Consequently, total cholesterol levels improve markedly. Scientists have concluded that this spice prevents the increase in low-density lipoproteins.
