What are the health benefits of cloves?
Made from tiny dark brown cloves, the powder is bursting with health benefits, helping to provide your body with the nutrients it needs to recover from a range of conditions. Here are the top 5 reasons why you should consider taking clove:
1) Cloves support your digestive system.
As a supportive measure for digestive health, cloves are a helpful aid in relieving upset digestive system. Cloves help to increase the secretion of digestive enzymes, which promotes the normal functioning of digestive processes and helps to prevent constipation. In addition, cloves are rich in fibre, which also has a stimulating effect on digestion.
2) Cloves as a powerful pain reliever and cough remedy
Thanks to the eugenol found in cloves, a powerful natural antioxidant and painkiller, clove powder is an effective remedy for toothache as well as a relief in case of gum problems. Likewise, the analgesic properties of cloves are also helpful for headaches, stomach aches, nerve pains and muscle spasms. Cloves are also an effective remedy for respiratory diseases and cough. Thanks to its expectorant and antiseptic properties, cloves can help to get rid of a dry cough and thus speed up the recovery from a cold.
3) Cloves as a true vitamin bomb
Cloves contain high levels of A, C, K, E and B-complex vitamins, as well as minerals such as manganese, selenium, potassium and magnesium. Manganese in cloves accounts for as much as 30% of the body’s daily requirement. Manganese is crucial for strong bones and brain function. In addition to its high nutritional value, cloves are also packed with antioxidants that help to fight free radicals, thereby protecting cell-level health and preventing diseases caused by free radicals. The antioxidants in cloves help to reduce the risk of heart disease, diabetes and certain cancers.
4) Cloves as a blood sugar balancer
A number of studies have shown that compounds found in cloves help to control blood sugar levels by increasing the uptake of sugar from the blood into cells, increasing insulin secretion and improving the function of insulin-producing cells. This is why cloves, when combined with a balanced diet, can be a truly effective aid in regulating blood sugar levels.
5) Cloves as an effective bactericide
Thanks to its antimicrobial properties, cloves are an effective bactericidal agent, helping to stop the proliferation of bad micro-organisms in the body. Cloves can be helpful in stopping E.coli as well as bacteria that contribute to various gum diseases.
In addition, cloves are an effective remedy for the following conditions:
- respiratory diseases, including sinusitis, bronchitis, tuberculosis, asthma and cough;
- stress and depression;
- inflammation of the body;
- chronic fatigue;

How to take clove powder capsules?
The recommended daily dose is 2 capsules 1-2 times a day taken with water. However, if you are pregnant, breast-feeding or taking medication, it is advisable to consult your doctor before taking clove capsules.
What should I consider before taking cloves?
To avoid blood clotting problems, avoid taking cloves for 2 weeks before an operation or other medical procedure. In addition, it is also advisable to be careful about overdosing. This is because, although eugenol in cloves has healing properties and is beneficial in small amounts, it becomes toxic to the liver when taken in large quantities, so you should not increase the recommended daily dose on your own.
