New research shows that cumin powder can help you with your weight loss plan, decrease body fat, and improve unhealthy cholesterol levels naturally. Scientists at Iran’s Shahid Sadoughi University have found that people who consumed just 1 teaspoon of cumin powder a day lost their weight 3 times faster, compare to the ones on the same diet, but without consuming cumin powder.
Researchers at Iran’s Shahid Sadoughi University of Medical Sciences randomly split 88 overweight or obese women into 2 groups. For 3 months, both groups received nutrition counseling and decreased their daily intake of calories by 500. But one group was also eating 3 grams (a little less than 1 teaspoon) of cumin powder daily, swirled into 5 ounces of yogurt (the same amount of yogurt, minus the cumin, was also prescribed to the control group).
