While clove is a notable spice in the culinary world, the benefits of adding cloves to your regular healthcare regimen should not be dismissed. The many qualities of cloves offer a systemic boost with particular enhancement to digestive health, blood circulation, and immunity.
A small clove bud packs a mighty wallop of health promoting qualities, most notably the effect on unwanted microorganisms that have taken up residence in the body. Cloves are a potent antifungal, antibacterial, antiviral and anti-parasitic. The active component eugenol is toxic to harmful organisms and creates an inhospitable environment to discourage their proliferation. Even without the presence of foreign organisms, cloves help to calm digestive complaints such as nausea, diarrhea, excess abdominal gas and bloating.
Cloves promote blood circulation, which can reduce the tension of the blood vessels. Increased circulation enhances the oxygenation of the blood and the organ systems. Cloves also help to reduce iron in the blood when there is too much, a condition called hemochratosis. Too much iron in the bloodstream may fuel abnormal liver function and heart failure.
Cloves are a great immunity booster due to the blood purification and antioxidant properties that help to fight cell damage and disease formation.
