Why eat Bitter Gourd?
Bitter gourd has been a not so favourite dish to many. Besides its taste, this gourd actually has so many health benefits. Some do not like its sharp flavour and some do not like to eat it based on its distinct appearance. Whatever may be the reason bitter gourd does have many benefits.
Bitter gourd is rich in vitamin C, a micronutrient involved in disease prevention, bone formation, and wound healing. It is a good source of gallic acid, chlorogenic acid, catechin and epicatechin which are powerful antioxidant compounds that help protect our cells against damage.
Bitter gourd is also rich in vitamin A which is a fat-soluble vitamin that promotes skin health and also proper vision. It provides folate, which is vital for growth and development. It is low in calories and high in fibre as well as smaller amounts of potassium, zinc, and iron.
Some of its health benefits include:
Helps reduce blood sugar levels: Bitter gourd has long been used to treat diabetes-related conditions.
Decrease cholesterol levels: Several studies have found that bitter gourd may decrease cholesterol that could help support heart health.
May aid weight loss: Bitter gourd is an excellent source of fibre. Since fibre passes through the digestive tract slowly, this will help you stay fuller for long in turn reducing hunger and much more.
Why consume bitter gourd in a pickled form?
