Short Description : Fresh Karela
Bitter gourd, or karela in Hindi, is relished for its benefits and despised for its bitter taste. It is an excellent source of vitamins B1, B2, and B3, C, magnesium, folate, zinc, phosphorus, manganese, and has high dietary fibre. It is rich in iron, and contains twice the beta-carotene of broccoli, twice the calcium of spinach, and twice the potassium of a banana, according to Health.com. The antimicrobial and antioxidant properties present in karela juice help in treating skin problems, blood disorders, removing toxins from the blood and purifing it. It also improves blood circulation and helps to cure issues like rashes, acne, psoriasis, blood boils and even hinders the growth of cancerous cells in the body. Eating or drinking the juice of karela stimulates the liver to secrete bile acids that are essential for metabolising fat in the body. Besides, a 100g serving of bitter gourd contains just 17 calories making it a great option for fitness enthusiasts. Bitter gourd has a certain insulin-like protein called polypeptide P that mimics the action of insulin and lowers blood sugar levels in diabetic patients. Consuming karela can help you get rid of acne, blemishes and skin infections and gives you a healthy and glowing skin.
