Jeera water has my homoeopaths seal of approval as it flushes out all your system. My Sis-in-law says they drink this every night and it has worked wonders for their general health.
To make Jeera Pani you use Jeera or cumin. Jeera is a spice long used in the Indian cuisine as an effective anti flatulent. Jeera pani eases bowel movement hence constipation. This improves your gut health and your overall health.
It is not rocket science just boil jeera/cumin in the water! You are done! You can also soak the jeera overnight and drink the water in the morning.
My recommendation is to drink it in the night so you do not have any emergencies during the day unless you are home.
- Jeera: Also called cumin these little grains of magic are a powerhouse of health.
- Water: Plain potable water.
- Put the two and boil till reduced to half. You can strain it or like me drink it with the grains of cumin.
- Warm tastes better but there is time I have gulped it down the room temperature.
- If you have planned it well then soak the cumin for 12 hours. Strain and drink.
