Cumin Beef!

Mountain Palace Weekly Special
Cumin Beef with Green Pepper, Onion & Rice
Cumin is a tasty spice that creates a unique and wonderful flavor. It is considered highly medicinal and has been used for millennia throughout Asia and the Middle East. As an energy booster, cumin is a great source of iron, which helps to maintain healthy energy levels. Iron improves blood flow throughout the body to increase oxygen delivery on a cellular level. Regarding cancer prevention, cumin has been found in studies to have potent anti-cancer properties. This is probably thanks to its free radical fighting properties. Free radicals can contribute to cancer development and growth, so consuming foods and herbs that fight free radicals can help to prevent cancer and other illnesses. Cumin is beneficial for the digestive system, helping with the symptoms of nausea, indigestion, diarrhea, and flatulence. Cumin contains “thymol”, a compound that stimulates stomach acid production and allows the body to get maximum nutrition from food. Cumin increases the heat in the body, boosting the metabolism as well as improving kidney and liver function. This can help the body get rid of impurities, which will decrease the chances of disease in the body.Getting rid of toxins within the body can also reduce the incidence of skin problems. Breakouts such as blemishes, rashes, and boils are usually a result of the body trying to remove waste in the body and using cumin may reduce these symptoms because the waste is efficiently taken care of through the digestive system. In addition to increasing energy, cumin may also be beneficial for lactating mothers because it may help to increase milk production.
