Drink cardamom tea for the care and relief of Depression
Effectiveness: 3.2Popularity: 53
Why it works: The seeds of cardomom contain volatile oils that have been found to be effective for treating depression.
How it works: Boil a cup of water, and then add two cardomom pods into the boiling water. The pods should be squashed gently before adding them to the water so that they open up from one end. Leave the pods in the boiling water for 3 minutes, and then strain the tea into a mug. Drink this tea twice per day. Do not buy decorticated (meaning the tiny, fragrant seeds were removed from the pod) cardamom seeds or break open the pod ahead of time. The seeds will quickly lose their flavor after you break open the pod.
