11 Oct What Makes the Cloves in Comoros Stand Out?
Located along an ocean trading route connecting Asia, Africa, and Europe, Comoros is an independent state comprising three Comoro islands in the Indian Ocean, off the coast of East Africa. Most people in Comoros rely on subsistence farming. While ylang-ylang and vanilla are widely exported, the cloves in Comoros are particularly popular.
Between 2019-2020, Comoros exported $21.3 M in cloves, making them the 5th largest exporter of cloves globally. In the same year, cloves became the most exported product in Comoros.
Being amongst the top producers of cloves, Comoros exports nearly 71% of its total export. And that makes it one of the largest clove exporters in Africa. In addition, cloves in Comoros are traded worldwide for their quality and the health benefits they provide. Here are some examples:
1) Treats Dental Problems
Cloves are an excellent remedy for toothache and dental pain as it has analgesic, anti-inflammatory, and antibacterial effects. According to a 2006 study conducted on 73 adults, researchers found that the clove-based gel was comparable to benzocaine (an anesthetic) which eased the pain of injections in the patient’s mouth. In addition, the antibacterial properties of clove may also help reduce oral bacteria leading to the development of gingivitis, cavities, and plague.
2) Regulates Hunger Levels
Cloves are an excellent remedy as it suppresses appetite. In addition, as a spice, cloves have a good amount of fibre- a nutrient that can help regulate your hunger levels. One tsp of cloves is equal to a gram of fibre.
3) Normalizes Blood Sugar
Anyone checking their blood-sugar levels will be happy to know that adding cloves into their meals is an excellent remedy. Cloves contain manganese, a mineral that can keep blood sugar levels in check.
4) Promotes Liver Diseases
According to animal studies, compounds in cloves may also help promote liver health. For example, another study found that clove oil improves liver function and reduces inflammation in rats with fatty liver disease. In one more animal study, eugenol in cloves helped reverse the signs of liver cirrhosis.
