Cloves are the aromatic flower buds of the tropical tree Syzygium aromaticum, which is native to Indonesia's Maluku Islands. Cloves are best known as a sweet and fragrant spice, but they have also been used in traditional medicine in India and China for centuries. Cloves are low in calories and high in manganese. Otherwise, they are a modest source of nutrients. Health benefit includes:
- Natural bad breath cure
- Improves digestion
- Controls diabetes
- Promotes good bone health
- Improve immune system
- Have anti-cancer and antibacterial properties
This versatile spice may be used to season curries, flavour hot drinks, and provide spicy warmth to pastries and desserts. We recommend including a few portions of these organic cloves into your meals once a week as part of a healthy and balanced diet.
