The last few months have taught us to take care of our health, but there are many things that we still take for granted…. like our breathing. Here’s a tip to help in de-congesting your lungs. Try this for a fortnight. Boil a small teaspoon of jeera with 2 crushed peppercorns in water and have it like a hot tea. #Tuesdaytip #lungs #llunghealth #healthychoices #healthyfood #spice #jeera #choosedaytips #back2basics
Here’s the home remedy she follows:
“Boil a small teaspoon of jeera (cumin) with 2 crushed peppercorns in water and have it like hot tea,” the actor wrote on social media.
Along with being a great digestive, cumin is also known to have decongesting properties, she further mentioned. The cumin water helps in clearing any mucus accumulation in the chest and is a great hydrator, Dr Brahmanand Nayak, Ayurveda practitioner, writes in his blog.
When do you need to drink cumin water? “Have this in the morning after you finish doing your pranayam and see whether it works for you,” said Bhagyashree.
