In Israel most people will be familiar with the spice”Hel” [Cardamom] routinely used by the Arab population in their coffee. Maybe less known is that this can prevent palpitations sometimes caused by coffee and in general it is a healthy spice [like so many spices]
I am sending you a summary of another use of cardamom [ examined in animals] but which may be useful probably for humans as well if stress has caused anxiety……….worth trying if necessary
Conclusion: Cardamomum extract administered immediately after stress might help to prevent the formation of anxiety-like behavior in the animals. Further studies are suggested to clarify the
exact mechanism involved.
