An ancient spice that facilitates digestion
Caraway is a small plant in the Apiaceae family. A cousin of fennel and anise, this age-old spice is primarily grown for its leaves and seeds which have excellent aromatic qualities. As early as 1500 BC, the Egyptians were using it to promote digestion. Today, the active ingredients it contains have validated this traditional use of the plant to support and aid digestion: it is indeed known to support digestive function, relieve bloating (in a dose of 1.5 to 6g/day of fruit and 300 mg/day) and help with flatulence (in a dose of 0.5 to 2g/day).
