If your stomach becomes bloated due to gas, ajwain can help you in this too.

* Mix ajwain and lemon juice together.
* Now, add a pinch of black salt to this mixture.
* Take it twice a day for proper results.

2. Ajwain and ginger powder mixture

If you are often troubled by problems related to indigestion and gas, then ajwain and ginger powder mixture is the right thing for you. Active enzymes found in ajwain enhance the flow of stomach juices. This aids in conditions including gas, bloating, and indigestion. Additionally, oesophageal, gastric, and intestinal sores have been found to improve with the use of ajwain. It enhances metabolism and aids in the reduction of body fat.

How to prepare?
* Make a powder by grinding carom seeds and dried ginger.
