Cloves were once considered one of the most valuable of all spices, and their value was measured in gold. The dried blooms of the clove tree are known as cloves. Despite their popularity as a flavoring agent, cloves have also been used medicinally for centuries.
In fact, certain chemicals in cloves have shown promise in animal experiments, suggesting they may improve health in a number of ways. The information in this article is based on research conducted at the Cleveland Clinic, and it will explore the benefits of dried cloves and how they can be used to treat certain medical conditions.
How to prepare clove tea:
Start by reducing 1 tablespoon of whole cloves to a powder. Put the cloves and a cup of water in a pan and bring to a boil. Brew for three to four minutes before drinking.
Once it has cooled, strain it and serve. If you want your tea to be sweeter, you can add a teaspoon of honey. The best results will be achieved if you drink this tea first thing in the morning. Be careful not to add too much of the mixture. Just remember that too much of anything can be bad for your health.
Therapeutic Value of Clove
The relief of joint pain and promotion of bone health are two of its many benefits.
You wouldn't expect a spice like clove to be particularly nutrient-dense, but it's a rich source of manganese, which is needed for healthy bones. Compared to the daily sufficient intake levels advised by the FDA, just one teaspoon of clove provides more than twice as much.
bactericidal properties of cloves
While using a chemical-free mouthwash (or fruit or green tea) is a terrific method to boost your oral health, you may find that cloves provide even more of a boost. Preliminary studies have looked into the efficacy of clove oil as an antimicrobial. Plaque and oral bacteria can be reduced by using a mouthwash with clove, basil, and tea tree oil, according to one study. Because of this, clove oil can be found in many different brands of commercially available toothpaste.
Enhance your liver's wellness.
Because of their high antioxidant content, cloves may be useful in the treatment of liver disease.
Help reduce cough
Cloves are a treasure trove of anti-inflammatory ingredients, which might come in useful during times of sore throat, cough, cold, and sinusitis. Raw cloves can be chewed, dissolved in hot water and sipped first thing in the morning, or even added to your chai for added flavor.
