Mostly people gather stubborn fat around their abdominal area, which could be either due to bloating or poor gut health.

But when that is treated, things start working out for you.

In today's age and generation, the biggest struggle that most people face in the world, is to lose weight.

Now did you ever realise that losing weight could be very simple?

The magical potion behind this is none other than celery seeds, or what we call as ajwain.

Yes, we are told to follow a strict diet, regularly exercise and catch up on some good amount of sleep.

But still sometimes we fail to achieve the desired results.

Stress adds up to the hurdle race of our 'trying to loose weight' scenario.

Mostly people gather stubborn fat around their abdominal area, which could be either due to bloating or poor gut health and when that is treated, things start working out your way.

All you've got to do is soak a tablespoon of ajwain seeds overnight and next morning boil it.

Filter the seeds and drink the water on an empty stomach. Avoid eating anything until an hour.

This solution could treat your digestion, cure bloating and gut health and all along burn fat around your abdomen.

If you want better and faster results, you could have this an hour before every meal.

Ajwain is a miracle seed and has many other benefits as well.

Apart from the above mentioned weight loss and aiding digestion here's a list of a few other benefits as well.

  • During pregnancy

Pregnancy brings along a few other annoying symptoms like flatulence and constipation.

Ajwain not only treats these symptoms, but also strengthens the walls of the uterus.

  • For congestion and cold

Thymol in ajwain seeds is loaded with anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties that can be useful in relieving congestion and cold.

You can either consume it or heat it on a pan and take its steam to clear a blocked nose.

  • Regulating periods

Ajwain seeds can be extremely beneficial for women with irregular periods and those who bleed excessively during it.

Soak two teaspoons of ajwain seeds in a bowl of water and have that water every morning to say bye-bye to all your period woes.

  • Boost your heart health

Ajwain has niacin and thymol that also helps to stimulate nerve impulses and improve blood circulation in the heart.

  • Treating arthritis pain

Due to its anti-inflammatory property, ajwain not only heals from within, but also helps soothe arthritis pain.

Crush a handful of ajwain seeds in enough water to make a paste and apply it on the affect area twice daily.
