Jackfruit (Kathal)

Jackfruit is a unique and appealing tropical fruit that has a distinct musky smell and deliciously sweet in taste. The fruit is usually harvested during the summer and fall. There are large sized specimens available of this fruit with an average fruit size measuring between 10 to 60 centimeters in length and about 25 to 75 centimeters in diameter. This exotic fruit is green in color when not ripe, it turns light brown and spreads a strong fragrance as it ripens. Due to its high protein value, jackfruit is a popular meat substitute among vegans and vegetarians.

Nutritional Value of Jackfruit (Kathal)

In layman terms, jackfruit is known as the ‘jack of all fruits’. A rich source of vitamin, minerals, phytonutrients, carbohydrates, electrolytes, fiber and proteins, jackfruit is considered as a great food source for quick energy boost.

Mentioned below are the best health benefits of Jackfruit (Kathal)
Health Benefits of Jackfruit (Kathal)

For optimizing your immune system

Jackfruit is high on vitamin C, an essential nutrient known for its antioxidant property. Our bodies need antioxidants to reduce the free radicals, that are produced in the body due to the reaction of oxygen with certain molecules. These free radicals, if not controlled, can cause a chain reaction that damages the cell membranes and the DNA. The free radicals are often responsible for early ageing signs and for decreasing the body’s immunity to fight infections and diseases like cancer and different types of tumors. Being a natural source of vitamin C, jackfruit can significantly improve the body’s immune system against common diseases like cold, flu and cough.

Good source of healthy calories

If you are feeling tired and need a quick energy boost, there are only a few fruits that can be as effective as jackfruit. This fruit is particularly good because it contains a good amount of carbohydrates and calories, and no bad fat. The fruit contains simple, natural sugars such as fructose and sucrose that are easily digestible by the body. Not just that, these sugars are characterized as ‘slowly available glucose’ or SAG, which implies that the fruit releases glucose in the body in a restrained manner. This is the reason for the low glycemic index of the fruit. This fruit is hence a good source of natural sugar for diabetics.

Great for overall healthy

1 cardiovascular system

One of the main causes for an unhealthy heart is the increased sodium levels in the body. Potassium deficiency can aggravate the condition as potassium is known to control the sodium levels in the body. Potassium is also essential for coordinating and maintaining muscle function; this includes heart muscles. Jackfruit is a great source of potassium and fulfills 10% of the body’s daily potassium need. Hence, jackfruit can help in regulating blood pressure and prevent a heart attack.

Fiber for good digestion

Jackfruit is a rich source of fiber. This dietary fiber offers significant amount of roughage, i.e., about 1.5 grams of roughage per 100 grams serving. This roughage acts as a natural laxative for preventing constipation and improving digestion.

Protection from colon cancer and piles

The high content of antioxidants in the jackfruit cleanses the colon. Though it does not directly impact in treating colon cancer, it does help in reducing the progression of the condition. This fruit is also very effective in alleviating and preventing piles. Chronic constipation leads to piles and with its high dietary fiber content, jackfruit prevents constipation.

Good for your eyes

Jackfruit is a wonderful source of vitamin A, a nutrient that is essential for good eye health. This anti-oxidant improves vision and protects the eyes from free radicals. By strengthening the mucous membrane that creates a layer on the cornea, jackfruit can also prevent any bacterial or viral eye infections. It contains Lutein Zeaxanthin that protects the eyes from the harmful UV rays. This component also contributes significantly to improving your vision in dim or low light. Jackfruit can also help in preventing macular degeneration. The fruit is also known to be effective in preventing night blindness.

Providing asthma relief

Jackfruit extracts are known to help in alleviating the symptoms of asthma such as extreme difficulty in breathing, wheezing and panic attacks. Boiling the roots of jackfruit and consuming the extract has shown effective results in reducing the symptoms of asthma.

For preventing calcium loss from the body

With its high amount of calcium, jackfruit is a wonderful remedy for bone related illnesses such as arthritis or osteoporosis. The high potassium content of this fruit decreases the loss of calcium from the kidneys thereby increasing the bone density and strengthening the bones.

Preventing anemia

Anemia is a condition that is characterized by a reduction in the red blood cells (RBC) in the body that leads to slow transportation of oxygen in the body, leading to lethargy, excessive fatigue, pale skin and frequent cases of black-out. Jackfruit is a rich source of iron that fights deficiency of RBCs in the body and the vitamin C content of the fruit promotes absorption of iron by the body.

For flawless skin and glowing complexion

Jackfruit is not just great for consumption but it can be a wonderful and natural product for your healthy skin. The seeds of the fruit are particularly rich in fiber that can detoxify your system and give you a glowing skin. You can even apply a paste of the jackfruit seeds and milk on your face for a healthy glow.

For regulating blood sugar levels

High blood sugar levels in the body can be due to deficiency of manganese. Jackfruit is rich in this nutrient thereby helping in regulating blood sugar levels.

For healthy management of thyroid

Thyroid can be quite annoying if not managed properly. Copper is an essential nutrient that is vital for thyroid metabolism and for regulating hormone imbalances.

Uses of Jackfruit (Kathal)

Jackfruit is a common ingredient in Southeast Asian kitchens. In Bangladesh people use the flesh and seeds of jackfruit in curries. The fruit is used for preparing sweet dishes in some parts of India, while the seeds of the fruit are roasted and consumed as a snack.

Side-Effects & Allergies of Jackfruit (Kathal)

Though a healthy food, jackfruit can cause some side effects and allergic reactions. The fruit is particularly not advised for people with birch pollen allergies. The fruit is also not recommended for consumption by people who suffer from blood related disorders, as it can increase coagulation. While typically the fruit is good for diabetics but it may even cause an alteration in their tolerance levels to glucose hence, diabetics should consume jackfruit in limited amount. In patients undergoing immunosuppressive therapy and in patients with tissue transplants, seeds of jackfruit may have an immune-stimulative effect. There are varied opinions on consumption of jackfruit during pregnancy. Though there is no scientific evidence, there is general perception that jackfruit may induce miscarriage. However, consuming limited quantities of the fruit during pregnancy is advised for its powerful laxative properties and vitamin content.

Hello viewers, welcome to our lybrate youtube channel. Mein Dr Priyanka Shende aap sabhi ka iss channel pey swagat karti hoon. Meine BAMS TTCM yoga kiya hai 7-8 saal ka mera ayurved ka experience raha hai, aur meine sukham Ayurveda centre k naam se mera 2 clinic hai ek sector 23. Nerul east mein hai aur dusra sector 12 kharbar nagar navi Mumbai mein hai. Doston aaj kal apne health ko leker, apne diet ko lekar bohot conscious ho chuke hai, lekin iss diet k bare mein mein apko ache se iss channel ki video mein bata deti hoon.

Ayurveda bohot prachin hai 5000 saal purana iska itihas raha hai. isme Ayurveda ayur means life and veda means science basically its science about life or knowledge about a life. Ye ek eisa ved hai jisme hamari jivan shaili ka varnan kiya hai .jo byakti swast hai uska swast banaye rakhne k liye Ayurveda mein dinacharya rudracharya vasayan vajikaran ittadi ka varnan dikhai deta hai aur jo vyadi se pirit hai uss vyadi ko swmul nasht karne k liye ilaaj bhi bataya gaya hai. Lekin swast vyakti kaun hai ye abb hum jante hai. Swast vyakti usse kaha jata hai jinke dosh rehte hai hamare sharir mein, vata pitta kafa aur agni, ek jatt agni aur ek sapta dhatu agni uske sath mein dhatu rasa rakta mansh meda asti maja shukra ye hamere sarir k andar 7 dhatu hote hai, aur jab ye sab balance rehte hai to wo individuals swast kehlata hai. Uske saath mein hi hame hamara atma means soul mann means mind aur senses means indriya agar prasanna rahe ya happy rahe toh wo vyakti swast kehlata hai iska matlab, Ayurveda sharir aur mann dono ka bare mein sochta hai aur usko swasth rakhne k liye kuch niyam sikhata hai.

Doston ayurved k 3 upastamb bataya gaya hai ahaar matlab proper diet, nidra means proper sleep brahmachari, ye teen Ayurveda k upastambha hai aaj hum isi mein se ahaar k bare mein janenge. Hum aajkal bohot busy ho chuke hai aapne lifestyle maintain karne k liye hamein kabhi kabhi chahte hue na chahte hue bahar ka khana khana parta hai, isme se ahaar matlab kya hai?  Ayurveda main ahaar ek bhesachvi bataya gaya hai. Veshachvi matlab aushadhi k tarah kaam karta hai aur usikobhi bishivi bhi bola jata hai kyunki hamere sarir mein job hi rog utpanna hote hai wo issi ahaar k wajah se hote hai isiliye hamein hamara diet proper lena zaruri rehta hai, isme se ahaar hum kisse kehte hai? Jo ache mann se banaya gaya ghar mein banaya gaya jo ahaar hota hai wo proper hamare sarir ko ball deta hai varna deta hai strength deta hai hamare immunity ko bara deta hai. Isiliye aajkal hum nonstick pan mein khana babate hai jo ki bohot toxious hote hai aur usse cancer bhi utpanna ho jata hai sarir mein. Isiliye hame ghar mein banaya hua ache mann se banaya hua khana khane chaiye.

Kabhi kabhi hum dekhte hai hum tv dekhte samaye ya mann mein kuch sochte samaye hum khana bante hai aur wohi saab khane mein uttar jate hai aur phir poore poshan na milne k wajah se bachon ko bahar se phir annya brand ka powder doodh mein milaker dete hai. Aisa nehi hota poorana zamane mein shlok bolte hue khane banana ka vidi bataya gaya tha kyunki ache mann se banaya hua khana hi acha parinaam dikhata hai. Ahaar ka parimaan desh k anusaar matlab hum jiss country mein rehte hai uss k anusaar ritu k anusaar matlab weather keisa hai uske anusar aur hamara age kya hai iske upaar aur hamare digestive power k uppar nirbhar rehta hai. Yaad rakhiye, digestive power jiska acha hai, wo moods aur foods dono ko pachak karr sakta hai. Iske liye hum sochenge ki ahaar kesa hona chaiye usse kabb khana chaiye. Jesa abhi meine bola k sabka appetite alag alag rehta hai sabka jatharan alag alag rehta hai. Toh jatharagni agar prakrut rehega toh hum job hi khayenge uska ache se pachan ho jaega ye jatharagni prakrut rehne k liye humein 2-2 ghante k baad khana khana chaiye. Raat k antaral k baad mein subha breakfast karna bohot hi zaruri hai. Yaad rakhiye dosto hum 9-5 baje k schedule mein rehte hai toh hum utna diet proper nehi le pate hai subha k breakfast hum skip kar dete hai lekin ye bohot hi hanikarak hai. Hamari sarir ko breakfast ki utni zaroorat rehti hai isiliye 10 baaje se pehle hume appna breakfast kar lena chaiye. Jo bahar hai wesa he apna sarir k andar chal raha hota hai jeise jeise sooraj tez hojata hai uske dhoop tez hojati hai wesehi hamare sarir mein jatharagni pradipt ho jati hai, isiliye 12-2 baje k beech mein hamein apna lunch kar lena chaiye, ho sake toh raat k 8 baje se pehle apna khana kha lijiye warna wo digest nhi ho pata hi. Agar usse late hota hai toh aap supachyak ya halka ahaar hi preffer kijiye. Ye hogaya hamein khana kabb khana chaiye aur ek baat mein yahan batana chahungi ki jatharagni agar pradipt nhi hai matlab hamein bhook nhi laagi hai lekin phir bhi kuch log aapna time ho chukka hai ya phir hamara regular diet 3 chapati katori bhar roti ka ya rice ka hain toh utna hi lete hai to ye cheez achi nehi hai kyunki haar samaye hamara jatharagni badalta rehta hai ritu k anusaar badalta hai hamare age k anusar badalta hai to uska bhi hamein dyan rakhe diet le lena chaiye.

Ahaar keisa hona chaiye?

Ahaar atraasatmak hona chaiye doston jisme madhur amla lavana katu tikta kasai ye poore 6 k 6 rass hone chaiye. Jese meine pehle hi bataya sharir panch mahabhooton se bana hai aur ye jo abhi hamne rasa bole wo bhi panch maha bhoot se hi bane hai isiliye usi kram se hamein usse khana chaiye. Hum aksar dekha karte hai ki hum jab shadi mein jaate hai ya partyion mein jaate hai toh desserts hamesha hum last mein khate hai jo ki galat hai isiliye kyunki hame madhur ahaar ko sabse pehle kha lena chaiye. Hume kabhi bhi khana khane k 2 ghante k baad ya khana khane se 1 ghante pehle vyam ya maithun nahi karna chaiye doston ye toh hogaya ahaar k baare mein.

Ab hum sochte hai humein paani kabb peena chaiye?

Hum agar khana khane se pehle paani pee lete hai toh wo hamare sarir mein ajirna paida karte hai matlab ki indigestion utpanna karta hai, jirne vari balapradam khana khane k ek ghante k baad mein agar aap water intake kar lete ho to wo proper aapne diet ko pachane mein madat karta hai. Bhajanecha amrutam matlab bhojan karte samay hamein sip sip water le sakte hai. Water k jagah dopahar k khane mein hum chhas le sakte hai subhah k khane mein juice le sakte hai, toh ye water part ho jata hai. Khana hamesha adha pet khana chaiye 1/4th part uska water k liye chhorna chaiye aur adha hamein hawa k liye chhorna chaiye doston. Ye toh hogaya khana khane k bare mein lekin hamein khana khate samay ek baat ka vishesh dhyan rakhna hai, aksar hum khare khare ya bhagte dawrte khana khate hai wo bilkul galat hai kyunki khane ka ek niwale ko zada se zada chaba lijiye matlab chew kar lijiye usse kya hota hai hamara saliva usme mix hota hai aur wo jatharagni mein jaake jaldi se pach jata hai. Jinka metabolic rate bohot slow hai wo ye baat achi tarah se samajh le. Aksar hum dekhte hai ki jiska wajan bada hai unke pet k niche k charbi bohot badi hui dikhti hai , agar wo isko follow karenge ki eke k niwale ko barik tarah se kha lenge toh wo charbi kamm ho jaega. Abhi paani ko khana khane k ek ghante ka baad mein hi khana hai usse pehle agar hum khane khane k baad mein kulla kar sakte hai garam paani se, agar koi byakti chakkar aa raha hai ya kuch dehydration ho raha hai toh wo paani pee sakta hai. Ye hogaya hamein paani kabb peena chaiye .

Doston, hamarein Ayurveda mein virudhahar ka ek varnan milta hai jismein hamein ye bataya jata hai ki kaunsi chizon ko hamein ek saath nehi khana chaiye, jese k doodh aur daahi ko kabhi ek saath nehi khana chaiye, doodh aur namkeen cheezon ko ek sath nehi khana chaiye, doodh aur kisi bhi amla padarth ko ek sath nehi khana chaiye, uske saath mein kabhibi machli ya mooli khane k baad gurr nehi khana chaiye, machli khane ka baad mein ya kathal khane ka baad mein hamein doodh nehi peena chaiye. Hum jabhi poochte hai toh doodh machli k baad hum doodh toh peete nehi hai lekin non veg food humne kha liya hai toh uske baad hum ice cream zaroor khate hai toh wo bhi ek milk product hai toh usko hamein nehi khana chaiye. Iske saath mein hi shahed aur ghee ko kabhi equal proportion mein mix karke hamein nehi khana chaiye wo andar jaake vish saman kariya karta hai. Ye sab cheezein hum eksaath kha lete hai toh hamarein sarir mein Psoriasis ya eczema jeise skin disease utpanna ho jaati hai. Isiliye isko hamein ek saath nehi khana chaiye, chai k baad thanda paani nehi peena chaiye ya phir garam khana khane k baad thanda ice cream nehi khana chaiye. Toh ye saab hum virudh ahaar karenge toh vyadi se toh pirit hum ho hi jaenge. Ye hogaya virudh ahaar k barein mein abb saahi diet kya hai.

Doston hum toh thora aware ho chuke hai lekin phir bhi mein aapko bata doon, gehu jo rehta hai purana zamane mein wo chapta aur lamba jeisa milta tha but abhi k zamane mein wo milna possible nehi hai. Isiliye gehu mein glutamine namak ek tatwa paya jaata hai jo hamarein andaar jaake inflammation peida kar sakta hai isiliye usme gehu ka aate mein aap methi ka dana aur soya bean mix kar k usse roti bana lijiye toh ye pachne mein thora halka ho jaega. usi ke saath mein bajri jawar rachri means rahri isko mix karke agar aap roti banate hai wo bohot hi healthy rehega. Uske saath mein hi daal mein kya khana chaiye toh moong daal sabse sresht batayi jaati hai kyunki moong daal pachne mein bohot hi halki rehti hai isiliye hum moong daal ki khichdi bimari byakti ko dete hai kyunki wo agni pradipt karne mein madat karti hai. Toor daal aur chane ka daal ka sevan ho sake utna kaam kijiye kyunki ye acidity badati hai, pittakarak byakti ko isse zada takleef hoti hai. Uske saath mein hi hamein sabzian kaunsi khani chaiye toh job hi lambi sabzi rehti hai jeise ki snake gourd bottle gourd drumstick jisko hum bolte hai sevga , parwal dhorka Marathi mein hum jisse bolte hai wo cheezein humein khane mein zada se zada khani chaiye. Batata matlab potato brinjal aur matar jeise jo product food hai wo gases utpanna karte hai. Sabzion mein hamein sirf lambi wali sabzi khani chaiye jeise ki snake gourd bottle gourd wagara aur hamein 3 poisons bataya gaya hai Ayurveda mein ek sugar hai dusra maida hai teesra namak hai in cheezon jitna ho sake utna kaam khaiye aur swast banaiye.

Yaad rakhein doston jobhi hum khate hai usse pachit ghatak ya toxin paeda hoti hai aur wo hamarein sarir mein store kiye jaate hai aur ussise illness body main paeda hota hai issi toxins ko bahar nikal ne k liye Ayurveda mein panchakarma therapy ka ullekh aya hai. Isse hum internal cleansing karte hai aur jo toxin material hai usko bahar nikal dete hai. Isiliye agar possible ho sake toh doctor k salah se aap saal mein ek baar ya do baar panchakarma kaewa lijiye. Sahi khaiye swast banaiye. Hamarein iss channel ko subscribe karein like karein share karein aur phir ek baar mein agli baar aapke samne hazeer hongi ek naya health video k saath mein.

Thank you .

Super Foods for Diabetics!

Good evening everyone. I am Divya Gandhi. I am owner and dietician at Diet and Cure. Today, I am going to talk about certain things including Diabetes.

As you know, this is a very common disease which even people and kids are suffering from. So, how to prevent and cure this disease? There are four things which people generally take in a day, first is chapatti, second are vegetables, third are fruits and the last is oil. So, we will start with chapattis, person who is diabetic or is at risk of diabetes, should be taking a chapatti which contains barley, which we call as “jaw” in hindi. Barley and kala chana aata roti, this works in your carbohydrate metabolism and reduces the glucose levels in the blood. Secondly, we talk about vegetables. People come to me and ask me what all vegetables are allowed in diabetes. Apart from starch you can ideally take all the vegetables. Vegetables which are not allowed are potatoes, jackfruit and arbi.

But one thing that matters the most is the method of cooking these vegetables. One should not overcook the vegetables for example you should not pressure cooker the vegetables, the softer the vegetables the more glucose intake it will be in your blood. Third, we talk about fruit, though it depends on the sugar levels which fruits are allowed but there are two fruits which are completely safe that is jamun and guava. These two fruits can be taken in any quantity for a person who is suffering from diabetes. Fourth is fat, fat is generally should be avoided for a person suffering from diabetes however, it should not be completely off from your diet. Oil should not float on the vegetables. It should be what is required for cooking.

Now, we will talk about the herbs which also help to control the sugar levels.

  • Number 1 is karela and jamun powder, both these things if taken together half an hour before your meal can act as a diabetic medicine and will reduce the blood sugar levels.
  • Secondly, fenugreek seeds water which is generally also called methi dana which if we soak it in water for about ¼th teaspoon at night and consume the water along with the seeds next morning can reduce the blood sugar levels.
  • Third, is the barley seeds water, if we soak barley seeds in a bottle of water, about 1 teaspoon of barley in water and consume that water every day it will help in carbohydrate metabolism plus barley seeds are cold in potency, it will give your body a little bit of hydration during this weather.

So, this is all I wanted to tell about diabetes, lastly I would like to thank all of you for contacting me through lybrate.
