Home Remedy with Sabja Seeds

Today's my home remedy is with Sabja seeds or sweet basil seeds or tukmaria seeds. Normally in India we know this seeds as falooda seeds or in South India we use them in jigarthanda. Two month back I came to know more and more wonderful things about this seeds. when I was searching recipes for last month International BM I found lot's of soups and beverages. But they use chia seeds, yes chia seeds are very closer to sabja seeds also they looks like sabja seeds with a very little difference. Chia seeds are different then sabja seeds in nutritional values, they take time to blow up but sabja seeds takes only five minutes. What we get in India is sabja seeds, They looks almost like black seasame seeds but when you soak them in water they swollen and get a jelly texture.
                                     In Vietname cuisine they use tukmaria seeds for thickening the soups and puddings and also in beverages. Then I got interested and search for health benefits of this wonderful seed. I was surprised there are many health benefits with this seeds specially for weight loss and reducing body heat. Why I am so exited with this is before I read some articals  about this seed, I am not aware of this seeds. I was thinking that sabja seeds is for only for falooda or jigarthanda no I am wrong. check out this amazing health benefits and home remedies with sabja seeds.
1. My first remedy for weight loss
Soak 1 tea sp of sabja seeds in water for half an hour.
add this swollen sabja seeds to 1 glass of warm water with table sp of lemon juice and 1 tea sp of honey and drink it in the empty stomach.
Avoid deep fried and fatty food like cheese, butter and do brisk walking for half an hour. Try this and let me know. I am following this and I am very happy.
Why for weight loss? Sabja seeds  Keep your stomach hydrated, once you soak sabja seed in water  they swollen and become double in size. when you mix them with more water or with any fresh juice they keep your stomach full and delays carbohydrate metabolism. so you don't feel hungry for long time.
Not only with lemon juice you can mix  them with any fresh fruit or vegetable juice or smoothie or even with your cereal or simply with milk.
2. Now my second remedy for reducing body heat and heartburn's..
Some times we feel like having fever when we check we don't find any temperature, this is called low temperature or body heat or some doctors says that it is because of some infection what ever it is.
Next is heartburn's because of acidity, for all these problems sabja seeds are the best remedy..
Soak 1 tea sp of sabja seeds in water for half an hour.
Take one tab sp of curd(yogurt) and mix with one cup water and make butter milk add a pinch of salt and soaked sabja seeds and drink this in the empty stomach for one week.
Avoid coffee, tea you can have your break fast after half an hour having this butter milk.
apart from this this sabja seeds are low in cholesterol high in fiber  and a very good source of carbohydrates. sabja seeds have a very good source of Omega-3 fatty acid's which help in relieving stress and maks your mind strong and healthy.
So start adding sabja seeds to your drinks, soups and salads....:)
