Nutmeg's Health Effects


Unlike other herbs and spices, the health benefits of nutmeg have not been well known, although there are many benefits to this tasty spice. Nutmeg has a variety of health benefits and has been used as a healing herb for many centuries. It can help lower blood pressure and sooth a stomach ache as well as stop diarrhea and help to detoxify the body. The essential oil, of the nutmeg is particularly effective for soothing many ailments.

One of the interesting health benefits of nutmeg oil is its ability to stimulate the brain - it relieves stress and stimulates mental activity. It is even reputed to stimulate dreams. Its ability to improve concentration and increase efficiency was not lost on the ancient Greeks and Romans who used it as a brain tonic despite the fact that it was quite rare and costly.

Nutmeg has anti-inflammatory properties and can be used to treat joint and muscle pain. The oil works particularly well for this when it is massaged into the affected area. It is an integral herb in Chinese medicine where it is used for stomach pain and inflammation as well as reducing joint swelling.

In addition to being an excellent liver tonic which can help remove toxins from the liver, nutmeg oil is also a good herb for the kidney, helping it dissolve kidney stones as well as relieve infections of the kidney.

Heart problems may also be somewhat alleviated by nutmeg, as it can help increase blood circulation and stimulate the cardio-vascular system. It Is also great for your digestion. It can get rid of both gas and stomach aches and can relieve vomiting, diarrhea, and flatulence as well as encourage appetite.

Nutmeg can also help with respiratory problems such as a cough from the common cold. In fact, it is often found as an ingredient in cough syrups. It is also said to be able to help with asthma. However, this remains unsubstantiated by research.

While there are many health benefits of nutmeg, be careful not to take it in high doses. It can be toxic and can cause serious problems. Never consume more than 30 grams (around 6 tablespoons) in a day, and even this amount would be considered excessive.
