CALMS BELLY UP­SET: Car­damom

First For Women - - Health -

Sud­den body-clock shifts caused by the end of day­light sav­ing time (or even just a late night out) dis­rupt the en­teric ner­vous sys­tem—and that can lead to GI prob­lems. What can help: Chew three car­damom pods af­ter meals, or add a pinch of the ground spice to a mug of cof­fee. Re­searchers say car­damom’s mildly spicy scent calms the ner­vous sys­tem, prods the re­lease of ache-eas­ing di­ges­tive en­zymes and eases painful in­testi­nal spasms to cut the risk of GI up­set by 55%. Bonus: Chew­ing car­damom pods fresh­ens breath.
