Herbs and Spices You Can Use to Improve Digestion at Your Mount Dora Apartment
Even the best-prepared meals can sometimes trigger indigestion or upset stomachs, especially if you often partake in meals with strong flavors or spices. The capsaicin and high amounts of acid in some spices can trigger heartburn and other acid reflux related issues. Other foods, such as grains and beans, release gases as they break down in your stomach, which can lead to feeling bloated and sometimes even cause stomach pain. However, there are several ingredients which you can incorporate into your cooking to minimize the more unfortunate effects of certain cuisine on your stomach.
Here are a few herbs and spices that you can use to aid your digestion at your Veranda apartment home:
• Turmeric – Made from dried root, this yellow powder is popular in Middle Eastern and Asian cuisines. Incorporating turmeric into your meals can help reduce inflammation throughout your body, soothes indigestion, and reduces gas pains from spicy foods. There is also some evidence that turmeric can protect against other more serious maladies, including Alzheimer’s disease and colon cancer.
• Fennel – Fennel seeds contain carminative chemicals that can help prevent gas build-up and reduce the acid reflux that causes heartburn. These seeds are also an excellent palate cleanser, and can be incorporated into your meal in small bowls to help prepare your taste buds between courses or before dessert.
• Ginger – Ginger root is well known for its curative properties. It has been used in the Far East and other parts of the world for ages to prevent diarrhea and reduce nausea. Ginger powder can be used as a mildly flavored spice, while pickled ginger slices serve as another excellent palate cleanser.
• Mint – The cool flavor of mint leaves does more than add a potent and welcome kick to meals. Mints can soothe the intestinal tract and prevent the production of excess gas. Mints are also exceedingly versatile and easy to incorporate into a meal, useful in everything from steak sauces to stews to desserts.
All of these ingredients can be added to your recipes to help you create meals that are delicious and flavorful but easier on your stomach.
