    Cumin seeds are a very good source of iron, a mineral that plays many vital roles in the body. Cumin has traditionally been thought to benefit the digestive system, and scientific research is beginning to bear out cuminís age-old reputation. Research has shown that cumin may stimulate the secretion of pancreatic enzymes, compounds necessary for proper digestion and nutrient assimilation. Cumin seeds may also have anti-carcinogenic properties. In one study, cumin was shown to protect laboratory animals from developing stomach or liver tumors. This cancer-protective effect may be due to cuminís potent free radical scavenging abilities as well as the ability it has shown to enhance the liverís detoxification enzymes.
