The presence of vitamin B in it helps in the cleansing of intestines and helps deal with gastrointestinal disorders. It also helps in preventing diarrhea if consumed limitedly.

Helps fight diabetes

When it comes to fighting against diabetes or high blood sugar, limited intake of Aam Panna is found to be of great help. Helping bring the blood insulin levels to normalcy, Aam Panna is considered to be a sure shot remedy for bringing down high insulin levels. Aam (Mango) is known to have a low glycemic index which makes it certain that it doesn't contribute in any way to an increase in insulin levels when drunk up to a certain limit.

Rich in minerals

The loss of a considerable amount of electrolytes, especially sodium; often lead to heat stroke. Being extremely rich in minerals like sodium, magnesium, and potassium, a glass of Aam Panna helps bring back the right balance of electrolytes to the body. A perfect balance of electrolytes, play a crucial role in supplying the required energy to the body for doing daily activities. Electrolytes also help in regulating the right pH and fluid balance in the body while also removing fatigue. A cool glass of Aam Panna helps in electrolyte deficiency and keeps heat stroke at bay.

Containing citric, oxalic and malic acids, Aam Panna encourages a kind of bile secretion that functions as an intestinal antiseptic for healing diseases such as urticarial, jaundice and liver disorders etc.

Vitamin C abundant

Being a rich source of vitamin C, Aam Panna also helps in healing various blood disorders. Vitamin C present in Aam Panna boosts the formation of the new blood cells and increases the blood vessels’ elasticity. Aam Panna also helps in preventing certain unhealthy blood tendencies. The high amount of vitamin C present in Aam Panna helps trigger the iron absorption inside blood cells.

Packed with nutrients

The various nutrients that Aam Panna contains, such as vitamin A, calcium, magnesium and iron along with vitamin C, play a significant role in promoting proper and regular waste extraction from the body. Vitamin C also helps to prevent or treat skin diseases like scurvy that occur due to the severe lack vitamin C in our diet. The presence of Beta-carotene and vitamin A work towards rejuvenating and repairing damaged skin, bringing an extra glow to it.

Improves intestinal disorders

Aam Panna contains a particular nutrient called pectin which serves as the perfect solution for treating gastro-internals disorders. When this particular structural heteropolysaccharide, pectin gets mixed with honey or salt, it becomes a natural cure to various intestinal problems such as chronic dyspepsia, diarrhea, piles, dysentery, and constipation.

Prevents cancer

The rich amount of vitamin C that Aam Panna contains also works towards producing a good amount of antioxidants such as quercetin, methyl gallate, fisetin, isoquercitrin, astragalin etc. It is these anti-oxidant agents that protect the body from various forms of cancer, such as colon, stomach, lung, prostate, leukemia and breast cancer etc.

Reduced depression

Another major health benefit of Aam Panna is that it helps in reducing depression and gives a boost to one’s concentration ability. Vitamin B6 that Aam Panna contains, help in the production of gamma-amino butyric acid, which is essential for making the central nervous system act as a neurotransmitter, which in turn helps the mind to feel relaxed and distressed.

Diet Plan: Stay Cool This Summer!

Diet Plan: Stay Cool This Summer!

Summer is at its peak and the mercury level is rising by a notch every day. The scorching sun gives even more reasons to constantly hunt for some cooling and soothing foods which can comfort us. It is the time of year when you get dehydrated easily due to excess sweat and perspiration and that's the time when you want to reach out for something cold like sodas, beverages or even cold water. This is where we go wrong because anything extremely low in temperature can actually constrict our blood vessels and affect the heat loss process in our body. Here are a few tips you need to keep in mind to keep yourself cool:

  1. Increase your water intake: In high humidity conditions, you do not sweat adequately due to which you cannot release heat efficiently from your body. That is the reason why you need to drink enough water at regular intervals even if you are not thirsty to cool your system.
  2. Have eatables high in water content: Eat a lot of fresh fruits, raw salads and lightly spiced foods. Fruits and veggies are easy to digest and high in water content and hence help in hydration. Avoid fried and junk foods as they take time to digest and require a lot of water. Spicy foods can also increase body heat.
  3. Grab naturally cooling drinks: Drink naturally cooling beverages like coconut water, lemon juice, buttermilk and sugarcane juice, etc. Rather than aerated soft drinks, caffeine, and alcoholic beverages as they contain sugar and other preservatives which act as diuretics and can cause loss of water from the body. You can add sabja (tulsi seeds) to drinks as it has a cooling effect on the body.
  4. Have curd: Curd is excellent as it increases friendly bacteria in the gut and improves digestion and boosts immunity.
  5. Include veggies in diet: Add veggies like cucumbers, tomatoes, carrots, spinach, beet etc to add to the extra water in your diet.
  6. Small meals: avoid heavy meals at one time as it can cause acidity and affect digestion. Rather eat small meals to feel light and keep your system active.
  7. Don't forget raw mango: In the summer season, raw mango is a special fruit and is extremely good to prevent sunstrokes and weakness. Raw mango juice also known as aam panna can help balance electrolytes in the body. You can also have raw mango in any form like adding it in bhel, salads or making a dish out of it.

You can divide your day's meals as per regular timings like:

Breakfast: 2-3 fresh fruits (this can help to neutralize your stomach acids and make you feel light and active as they are natural sources of energy).

  • Mid morning: a glass of buttermilk/ coconut water (to refresh you).
  • Lunch: salads + 1-2 rotis + veggies + thin dals (you can add or subtract the rotis as per your appetite and requirement).
  • Evening: fruit yoghurt/fruit smoothie (they are filling, nourishing and cooling).
  • Dinner: stir fried veggies/ chilled soups + grilled chicken/ steamed fish/ low fat paneer/ tofu + jaljeera/ lemon juice (to keep your dinner light and help you wake up afresh).

Stick to the plan and stay cool this summer! If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Dietitian/Nutritionist.
