Cardamom (Elettaria cardamomum) is an aromatic spice that awakens the appetite and supports healthy digestion without aggravating pitta. Ground cardamom supports balanced stomach acid levels and the downward flow of energy in the GI tract. This helps pacify vata and pitta, and promotes a comfortable post-meal experience. Cardamom removes excess kapha from the stomach and supports healthy mucus levels in the body. It also eliminates kapha from the lungs, supporting clear, comfortable breathing. In The Yoga of Herbs, Doctors Lad and Frawley write that cardamom "stimulates the mind and heart and gives clarity and joy."*
There is currently a global shortage of cardamom due to harsh and unpredictable weather events in the regions where this delicate plant grows. Current pricing reflects this strain, however, we will continue to monitor market trends, updating prices as needed to ensure we're providing the highest quality cardamom available for the best possible price.
