India is a nation that knows spice. Indian spices are not just an ingredient as they add flavor as well as aroma to the food. These spices include a large variety of herbs that are grown across the Indian subcontinent (South Asia). Due to different climatic conditions across the country, India produces a variety of spices while others are imported from countries having similar climates.

Spices and aromatics are the very heart of Indian cooking. They have been used since ancient times. They were mentioned in the ancient Hindu scriptures called the Vedas, ancient Egyptian papyruses and the Old Testament.

List of top 3 Indian Spice and their Health benefits:-

Asafoetida: (Hindi name: Hing)

Aids digestion and prevents gas formation. That is why Indians use it in many lentil dishes (Dal).

Cardamom: (Hindi name: Elaichi)

This versatile spice is included in a wide range of dishes, from Indian curries to desserts and teas. It’s believed to counteract stomach acidity, stimulate appetite, ease nausea, cure bad breath,
and relieve gas and bloating. Cardamom has also been used as both an aphrodisiac and to fight obesity. But more study needs to be done on how well it may aid weight loss. And aphrodisiac? Well we like to believe that every exotic thing is an aphrodisiac.

Turmeric: (Hindi name: Haldi)

This bright yellow spice, one of the most important spices for cooking “curries”, has many medicinal properties. (Turmeric is one of the main ingredients of “curry powder”.) Its primary antioxidant, cur-cumin, is an essential ingredient for liver detox, and is also a natural arthritis treatment for its anti-inflammatory effects. The latest scientific studies are showing that turmeric may also be a promising diet aid that fights belly fat by inhibiting the growth of fat cells. Turmeric is even used to treat certain forms of cancer (along with conventional treatment). A paste made out of turmeric and quick lime (“Chuna” in Hindi) and applied to the affected part is very commonly used in India as an effective home remedy for sprains.
