Health Benefits Of Pickle

Health benefits of pickles

Free radical scavenging from antioxidants: pickles can be good source of antioxidants, especially decalepis hamiltonii or swallow root. As the vegetables or unripe fruits are stored fresh without cooking, the antioxidants present in those vegetables or unripe fruits are preserved as it is. Antioxidants are those micronutrients that help in protecting our body against the attacks of free radicals. Free radicals are unstable chemicals that are produced during cellular metabolism. These unstable chemicals react with our cells and damage our dna to become unstable and in the process, create more and more free radicals. We can protect ourselves from free radical attacks by consuming food with high antioxidants. A lot of emphasis these days is put on antioxidants by dieticians and doctors.

Supply of probiotic or gut-friendly bacteria: probiotic bacteria are those friendly bacteria that are present in our digestive system. These bacteria actually help us in the digestion of food. Sometimes, due to the use of antibiotics, along with invading bacteria, these friendly bacteria are also killed. The fall in their numbers can cause digestive problems that can be solved by eating pickles made without the use of vinegar. Naturally fermented salt pickles encourage the growth of these friendly bacteria, which will replenish the numbers in our digestive system and restore our health.

Supply of essential minerals and vitamins: fresh pickles, dips or chutneys are made from leafy vegetables or herbs such as coriander, curry leaves, spinach, parsley, and amaranth. These fresh pickles are interesting and appetizing ways of making children eat their share of leafy vegetables and herbs, which are otherwise boring for children. Eating freshly made pickles not only tastes good, but they also supply essential vitamins such as vitamin c, a, k, folate and minerals like iron, calcium, and potassium. Vitamins and minerals are vital micronutrients which protect us from diseases, help us build immunity, bone strengthening, vision protection, curing anemia, and various other functions.

Diabetes control: studies have shown that consuming vinegar based pickles improves hemoglobin levels in diabetic patients, which in turn helps in controlling diabetes. The acetic acid present in vinegar has been noted to be responsible for this phenomenon. However, care must be taken to avoid the consumption of salted pickles as excess salt increases blood pressure.

Improves digestion: in india, indian gooseberry or amla (phyllanthus emblica) is one of the favourite fruits that are pickled. This fruit is believed to possess several health benefits according to ayurveda treatments and moreover, since amla is a seasonal fruit, unripe amla pickles are prepared. It is customary practice in some indian families to have amla pickle as the first course or an appetizer as it is believed that amla pickle improves digestion.

Liver protection: apart from benefits such as improved digestion, amla or gooseberry pickle also has hepatoprotective properties. Studies have shown that when amla extracts were administered on lab animals with chemical-induced hepatotoxicity or liver damage, the damage was reduced significantly.

Reduces ulcers: ulcers are internal wounds caused due to a failure of mucus membranes and acid interaction on tissues. Particularly, gastric ulcers are caused by a weakening of mucous membrane and hyperacidity. Regular consumption of amla or indian gooseberry pickles also help in reducing ulcers, if any.

No form of contraception is 100 per cent effective. There are always chances of conception. If you are not in a position to handle the possible consequences of accidental pregnancy or sexually transmitted diseases, or for that matter the emotional repercussions, then better stay safe and avoid intercourse until you are in a position to deal with things (if they so happen) in a better manner.

#HappyEasterDay - Recipes For A Perfect Easter Meal!

Celebrated on the first Sunday after the full moon, post the spring equinox, Easter is a great time to catch up with friends and family over a delightful meal which is incomplete without culinary delights and desserts. From sweet breads, pastries, cookies, and cakes, to meat and eggs, these are some of the food items that grace the Easter tables. This is often a problem for people trying to watch their weight as it is practically impossible to control your appetite.

So, if you are confused about whether or not you should relish this amazing food, here is a tip - stick to healthy recipes and practice a little bit of self-control and you have it all covered.

Here are some simple and healthy recipe ideas for your Easter meal:

#Recipe1: Chocolate mousse eggs


  1. Dark chocolate - 50 g dark chocolate (melted)
  2. Chocolate mousse (diet) – 165 grams
  3. Honeycomb chocolate bar - ½ bar (chopped)


  1. To make the shells, take Easter egg mould and place a spoonful of melted dark chocolate into each side, spread the chocolate with the help of a brush to make a thin coating inside the mould. Refrigerate until set hard.
  2. Whip the mousse until smooth. Carefully transfer the chocolate shells onto a tray. Pour one spoon of mousse in every shell. Sprinkle the chopped honeycomb bar.

This is a nice way to incorporate sweets into the Easter meal as it is not packed with a lot of calories and can be munched on without any guilt.

  5. Knead the flour mixture for at least 5-7 minutes or until it becomes elastic. Place it in a bowl and set aside until it doubles in size.
  6. Preheat the oven to 200°C. Lightly coat the cake tin with oil spray. Divide the dough into 12 equal portions.
  7. Roll these portions into balls. Arrange them in the oil-sprayed cake tin. Set aside in a warm place for 30 minutes.
  8. To make the flour paste, add flour and sugar in a small bowl, mix well. Add 2 tablespoons of water to make a smooth paste. Place in a snap-lock bag.
  9. Pipe crosses onto the dough balls. Place them in the oven and bake for 10 minutes. Reduce oven heat to 180°C and bake for another 20 minutes.
  10. Transfer the buns to a tray and let them cool for a bit. Lightly brush the buns with the reduced jam and serve.

Please suggest, Does herpes transfer through shin to skin contact? If uninfected person have no ulcers sores or wounds and not engage in kissing and do protected sex than also herpes can transfer? My simple question is that herpes can transfer through skin to skin contact but if there is no opening sores and cuts in skin of uninfected person than it can also transfer? Please advise I am very confuse.

Herpes can only be passed through direct skin-to-skin contact with the infected area such as kissing, oral sex, genital-to-genital rubbing, vaginal, and anal sex. Herpes (both oral & genital) can be spread even when there are no symptoms or sores.

My Age is 24 now, for the first time in 2014 when I was passing urine I felt like urgent to urinate at last blood drops came out of urine and immediately I consulted general physician he gave some medicines and all set. After 6 months I faced blood in urine again and I went to same physician he gave me some medicines and I asked what it could be he said heat. Finally in 2015 again blood came after urinating and this time I went to an urologist he said kidney stones and I asked how are you saying sir? He replied if blood came in urine for aged like 60 it is cancer and for young it is kidney stones and gave me medicines. Finally in 2016 again in January I faced the same problem and this time I thought to end up this and I went to Tulasi multi speciality hospital which is in my insurance network hospital. I said this same he said go with usg scanning there no kidney stones found, and sent me to RGU X ray. And I observed from the last year I don't know whether it was urine or water stool coming out of anus that happened only 10 days last year and this years but water will only one time or two times. I searched in Internet water coming out of anus my search founded fistula and in the same hospital I said about this too he said that must be a watery stool, because if it is happening occasionally and he said you have urethra structure and you have to go to Colonoscopy procedure. If you have doubt go to Gastrology department I went to Gastrology doctor. He put on his glouse and inserted finger and checked but Said no fistula go again for MRI pelvic scan I went to Vijaya diagnostics again no fistula in reports and Gastrology department said the same. Finally urologist said lets us go with cystroscopy. My question is does urethra procedure leads to UTI and then why some times water coming is it due to any pelvic masculine defect? What it might me?

Too early for surgery. Better start taking medicines regularly for 3 months It is a chronic condition accompanied by inflammation .so you should also take anti inflammatory drugs. If not relieved of symptoms in 3 months n size of chocolate cysts increases, then plan for surgery.
