You can imagine how pungent and aromatic oil of cumin is. Yet, that is why it is such a valuable substance. Its aroma is due to its high content of special substances known as aldehydes. Specifically, cumin is rich in cuminaldhehyde, and that is why it is so powerful.
Cumin has been used medicinally for thousands of years and was a favorite natural remedy for the ancients; it is mentioned at least twice in the Bible. Now it is known that cumin, and, particularly, oil of cumin, is one of the most powerful of all antioxidants. When researchers matched oil of cumin against all known antioxidants, it totally defeated all of them. Cumin oil greatly increased the ability of the body to fight toxicity by increasing the synthesis of a critical enzyme called glutathione peroxidase. One study found that this anti-toxic action was increased within the organs by up to 700%.
Since antiquity cumin has been respected as a digestive aid. Now we know that this effect is due to its valuable actions on the digestive organs, particularly the liver and pancreas. One study found that oil of cumin increased the liver’s output of bile, which is so critical for the digestion, by as much as 300%. That is an enormous increase. Another study found that cumin preserves and enhances the function of the pancreas. Other actions of oil of cumin proven by modem research include:
- anti-parasitic; kills eggs and larvae
- anti-toxic (helps with toxic chemical exposure) …. and much more
