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 and carom 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 seeds 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.
