Ayurveda is a goldmine of health benefiting ingredients. Many of them can also be used in myriad ways to arrive at potions and concoctions to tackle some of the severest of ailments. The potency of herb-infused waters is unquestionable. Herbs and ingredients like cumin seeds andcarom seeds have long been put to use by soaking these overnight and consuming the water the first in the morning. The humble methi dana or fenegreek is another similar ingredient which has long been included and lauded in the Ayurvedic repertoire of herbal remedies. These tiny, amber-coloured seeds are packed with nutrients essential for the body and properties that help tackle a range of common ailments.
“Methi water is something that anybody can consume. It facilitates weight loss, is good for your liver, kidneys and metabolism,” noted Bengaluru-based weight-management expert and nutritionist, Dr. Anju Sood.
