What are the benefits of asafoetida?

Asafoetida or hing contains coumarins which aid in the thinning of blood and prevent blood clotting. This anticoagulant property of hing along with its healing powers protects against high triglycerides , cholesterol and helps lower high blood pressure. The anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties of asafoetida help alleviate digestive problems like upset stomach, intestinal gas, intestinal worms, flatulence, and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). It also acts as an excellent laxative and prevents constipation. Do you use this flavourful spice for seasoning your daals/curry ?
