Indian Spice May Help Relieve Indigestion

Functional dyspepsia, more commonly known as indigestion, can cause upset stomach, pain, bloating, early satiety, nausea, heartburn, and regurgitation. A recent study suggests that a supplement of oleo-gum-resin from Ferula asafetida may help relieve indigestion.


Participants in the study included 43 people with moderate to severe functional dyspepsia. Over the course of 30 days, they were given either 250 mg of oleo-gum-resin from Ferula asafoetida or a placebo twice daily.


At the conclusion of the study, the researchers noted an 80% reduction in symptoms in the supplement group, including a 58% reduction in bloating, a 69% reduction in early satiety, a 74% reduction in postprandial fullness, a 75% reduction in motion sickness, and a 77% reduction in digestion. Additionally, 66% of the supplement group was symptom-free at the end of the study and 75% reported improved ability and/or interest in daily activities.


Researchers from Sri Rama Hospital in Bangalore led the study. It was published on August 26, 2018, in Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine.


Ferula asafoetida is commonly used as a spice in India, and is used in Indian Ayurvedic medicine.
