Doctors opine that indigestion of food leads weight gain. According to principles of Ayurveda indigestion leads to production of “ama” – a sticky toxin which blocks micro channels of body and slows down metabolism. Cardamom helps to digest “ama” and clear the blockage. Since it possess the quality “laghu” or lightness, it fans the metabolism and increases its rate just like a supply of air increases intensity of fire.
“Kapha” one of three main doshas is reason for weight gain. Vitiated Kapha increases body fat, slows down metabolism and impairs digestion. All these facts contribute to weight gain. Cardamom has property of normalising Kapha and reverses all the above mentioned process. This contributes to weight loss.
Excess accumulation of water in body cells lead to weight gain. Cardamom helps to get rid of water retention by increasing urine output. Hence cardamom is grouped under “mutrala” dravyas (mutrala= A herb or medicine which increases urine output).
Scientists praise the cholesterol reducing properties of cardamom. Since it normalises digestion and helps to burn off excess fat, it can aid in lowering of blood cholesterol.
