Asafoetida (Hing) – A boon for Digestive system

asafoetida

Eastern medicinal wisdom confirms that up to 50% of our disease is caused due to improper digestion. Undigested and partially-digested food triggers bacterial response in our gut, which in turns produces toxic chemicals called Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS). ROS is linked to many diseases such as Cancer, Heart Disease and Neurological diseases.

Asafoetida (Hing), is the dried resin obtained from the rhizome or tap root of group of plants called Ferula. Coming from the Persian origin, this perennial herb has been used in eastern cooking for hundreds of years. The active ingredient in Asafoetida is called Ferulic Acid. Adding even a tiny amount of Hing on your food preparation brings enormous benefit to your body to treat diseases such as Flatulence, Indigestion, Influenza infections, Cancer, and Respiratory tract diseases.

Good Gut for Good Life!
