As per experts, cumin is known to fortify the digestive tract and also keeps bloating and constipation at bay. While fenugreek seeds, as per the book 'Healing Foods', are a good source of mucilaginous (gum-like) fibre that soothes and protects the digestive tract from free radical damage.
Even though gut health and the importance of good digestion have been spoken about a lot, many of us are unaware of what role does gut play in our overall health. A majority of bacterial cells in our body make up for the gut, out of which the good bacteria helps metabolise nutrients from food, protects against intestinal disorders and keep your heart healthy. In simpler words, a healthy gut keeps our overall health in check and has a direct impact on our digestion and immunity systems. Guess our favourite Bollywood celebrities reckon this too!
