Black Poppy Seeds

Poppy seeds are often said to offer various health benefits like: promoting digestion, boosting skin and hair health, and treating headaches, coughs, and asthma. Less applicable to the culinary world but there are still some uses today.

Some research suggests it may aid digestion, may defend against certain illnesses, and may enhance fertility. Poppy seeds are rich in manganese, which help reduce the cortisol levels to help insomnia, and help for a more peaceful sleep. “Poppy seeds play a pivotal role in boosting female fertility. They are known to remove mucus from the fallopian tubes and aid in achieving pregnancy. They also enhance sexual desire and improve sexual health by boosting the libido.”

Poppy is cultivated across South eastern Europe and eastern and southern Asia.

Poppy seed is a bland topping or sometimes ingredient incorporated into breads or muffins. Other current uses with poppy are tea, warm milk infused with seeds for sleep aid, bagels, and other breads.

Poppy latex boasts opioid compounds known for their sleep-inducing properties, that is when they are not washed or cleaned. That’s why the poppy seed may still have some of these effects.
