What is the secret ingredient in this recipe?
Cumin is high in antioxidants and phytosterols. Phytosterols are natural substances of plant origin. They are just like cholesterol in their structure and function. They prevent the absorption of harmful cholesterol in the digestive tract, which could be the reason for their weight-reducing effect.
Past clinical trials have demonstrated that consumption of foods that are rich with at least 0.8 grams of plant sterols or stanols lowers the levels of LDL cholesterol.
The potential that cumin seeds have for dieting was revealed in a study published in the journal Complimentary Therapies in Clinical Practice. Utilizing this spice can help you lose weight faster and can impact the body’s fat profile in a positive way by reducing the levels of harmful lipids in the blood.
Research on cumin and body fatIn a study conducted by Iranian scientists from the Shahid Sadoughi University of Medical Sciences 88 women were included. They were considered overweight or obese in their study. The women were divided into two groups.
One group ate 3 grams of cumin powder daily, mixed into 5 grams of yogurt.
The control group consumed yogurt too, but without any additions.
Both groups received dietary advice and reduced their daily caloric intake by 500 calories.
Before the study and after 3 months of dieting different body measurements and parameters were taken. Women who ate cumin, lost 3 pounds (1.4 kilograms).
The members of the cumin group reduced the percentage of body fat by 14.64%—almost triple the 4.91% loss posted by the control group—because of the addition of the fat-burning spice.
The women in the treatment group also experienced decreased levels of fasting cholesterol, triglycerides (a type of fat associated with atherosclerosis, heart disease and diabetes) and LDL (bad) cholesterol. Also, their levels of HDL (good) cholesterol increased.
Additionally, the ladies who consumed cumin had larger reductions in body mass index and waist circumference.
