Cumin seeds also have many health benefits, the major being aiding in digestion. Yes, it is also believed that the consumption of Jeera can improve the digestion and reduces constipation. I reckon it to be true because I can still recall my grandparents drinking a glass of spiced buttermilk, Chaas, after lunch — which had a lot of jeera powder.
