Usually, cumin is grounded into curry powder and sometimes you can find it in grocery stores pre-packed as chili powder. You can use it in many dishes, almost in everything, starting from Indian curry to tea.
A study at the University of Medical Sciences in Iran made a research of 88 obese women, who were divided into two groups. Women from both groups ate the same amount of food and had a daily intake reduced by 500 calories. But only the first group was given the mixture of 5 ounces of yogurt and a teaspoon of cumin. This group had lost an average three more pounds in comparison to the other, non-cumin group.
Other benefits in the research were lowered levels of harmful blood fats, such as cholesterol and triglycerides, by 20 percent. Moreover, women from the cumin group reduced the risk of heart disease and obesity too.
