hort term memory loss is hardly approached by the affected one as a medical condition, which requires treatment. However, it is found to cause alarming consequences in people as their age advances.
The reasons for memory loss are far too many. Apart from genetic disorders, memory loss occurs due to smoking, alcohol consumption and drug abuse. Stress in modern lifestyle too can sometimes become a reason for this invisible but worrisome condition.
Cardamon, the king of spices, has an easy remedy for memory loss. According to Dr. Sarath Edasseril, an eminent Ayurvedic Doctor based in Erumeli near Kottayam, having a quarter spoon of finely ground cardamom seeds mixed with a teaspoon full of honey every day can produce great results. Instead of honey, sugar or butter can also be added.
Cardamom, besides being an anti-oxidant, has the herbal properties to improve immunity and other health benefits. Cardamom has therapeutic properties too, which are applied in many traditional medicines. The spice is rich in minerals such as magnesium, potassium and calcium. Potassium present in body fluids is helpful in keeping heart rate and blood pressure under control. Copper, which is required in the production of red blood cells, is also an inherent component in cardamom.
The exotic spice is also an excellent source of manganese and iron. It is also rich in iron, which is required for red blood cell formation and cellular metabolism. Besides, these aromatic pods are rich in vitamins, like vitamin-C, riboflavin, niacin among others.
