Carnations are the flower buds of trees of the Myrtaceae family. With the scientific name Syzgium aromaticum, this plant is located in the Malacca Islands in Indonesia. It also grows in the rest of Indonesia, Bangladesh, India, Pakistan, Tanzania, Sri Lanka, Madagascar and Zanzibar. As a plant, cloves contain many of the following benefits:

Nutrients

Clove is rich in vitamins and minerals. According to Nutrition and You, this plant contains vitamins A, B, C, E and K. Vitamin A promotes eye and tissue and cell health. Vitamin B improves neurological functions which cover thinking, learning and memory. Vitamin C is known to increase the body's immunity against diseases and infections, while also promoting the functioning of the collagen substance.

Collagen acts as a ‘cement’ and helps connect cells and tissues to each other. Vitamin E promotes skin health and along with vitamins A and C, functions as an antioxidant. Vitamin K on the other hand, regulates blood clotting.

In terms of minerals, cloves contain calcium, copper, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, selenium, zinc, sodium and potassium. Calcium and phosphorus promote bone and tooth health, while iron improves cellular and tissue oxygenation. Magnesium plays a role in neuromuscular coordination, while zinc promotes wound healing and better digestion. Copper and manganese act together to stimulate metabolism as well as stimulate cell and tissue development. Selenium prevents cell damage by releasing antioxidant enzymes. Sodium and potassium, on the other hand, work together to maintain fluid balance. The latter also helps cardiovascular health, prevents hypertension and relaxes vascular muscles.

Breathing problems

Clove promotes the health of the respiratory system. According to Mind Body Green, it can be used as an expectorant, which cleanses the lungs by expelling secretions in the form of phlegm. Clove also has antibiotic properties; attacks germs and helps the body cure sore throats.

Problems with diabetes

Cloves also help prevent diabetes mellitus, a chronic medical condition characterized by a prolonged rise in blood glucose levels. In a publication of the Journal of Natural Medicines, researchers found that cloves demonstrated lower blood glucose levels in rats. According to the discovery, mice injected with clove extract were found to have lower blood sugar levels compared to the group of mice that did not receive the extract.

Cloves can be used in various meals. Use them in ground form, to get the most out of this plant.
