Benefits of cloves for health
Some of the benefits of cloves that can be obtained for health include:
- Protect against cancer
Cloves are enriched with the antioxidant eugenol to fight free radicals in the body that can trigger cancer development. Apart from eugenol, cloves also contain vitamin C as an antioxidant to help neutralize free radicals. The antioxidant power in cloves is even reported to be five times more effective than vitamin E and other types of antioxidants.
The buildup of free radicals in the body can damage the DNA code and cause oxidative stress, which can lead to various chronic diseases. Starting from arthritis, heart disease, atherosclerosis, stroke, hypertension, stomach ulcers, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, cancer, to cause aging.
- Kills disease-causing bacteria
Cloves have antibacterial properties that can stop infections. A study shows that clove essential oil is effective at killing E. coli bacteria which can cause stomach cramps, diarrhea, and fatigue.
- Improve liver health
Not only protects the body from cancer, the eugenol in cloves can help improve liver health.
An animal study conducted on mice reports that clove oil can improve liver function and reduce inflammation. Other studies have shown that eugenol helps relieve symptoms of cirrhosis of the liver. Another study conducted on humans found that taking eugenol supplements for one week decreased levels of GST, an enzyme that is often a sign of liver disease. However, keep in mind that eugenol can turn toxic to the liver if consumed in high doses. One case study showed that 5-10 ml of clove oil in children can cause serious liver damage.
- Maintain healthy bones
Bone loss can increase your risk of developing osteoporosis. Well, a study conducted on animals reported that the active compounds in cloves have been shown to help maintain and increase bone mass density he manganese content in cloves also helps the bone formation process, and is very important for bone health.
- Treating heartburn
Heartburn is most often caused by thinning of gastric mucus which is influenced by a variety of factors, such as stress and infection. An animal study has shown that clove essential oil can increase the production of gastric mucus, which acts as a barrier to the effects of stomach acid, while preventing erosion of the stomach wall due to acid reflux.
- Controlling blood sugar levels
Research shows that the compounds found in cloves can help control blood sugar. Another study looked at the effects of clove extracts and nigericin, compounds found in cloves, on both human muscle cells and in mice with diabetes.
Cloves and nigericin were found to increase the absorption of sugar from the blood to the cells, increase insulin secretion and improve the function of cells that produce insulin. Insulin is a hormone that is responsible for moving sugar from the blood to the cells. In combination with a balanced diet, the benefits of cloves can help maintain your blood sugar levels.
