Are you struggling to figure out what’s best for you? Let’s understand the difference between the benefits of Karela Jamun and Karela Vinegar.
Karela or Bitter-gourd or Bitter Melon belongs to the family of melons and grounds. Not many people are fond of karela, even though it is called the powerhouse of nutrients and benefits.
- Karela has twice the quantity of iron than broccoli.
- It has more potassium than a banana.
- It has more calcium than spinach.
So now you know why it is a powerhouse.
Jamun, or Indian blackberry or Black Plum is used majorly in Ayurveda.
- It is rich in carbohydrates, calcium, potassium and phosphorus.
- It helps in diabetes as it helps reduce blood sugar.
Benefits of Karela Jamun
Moreover, Karela & Jamun possess a chemical combination of peptides, saponins and alkaloids. These help aid insulin secretion and prevent frequent blood glucose spikes and drops.
Similarly, the Jamun present in this mix is low in calories, helps regulate metabolism by converting starch into sugar, and thus controlling blood sugar.
Karela and Jamun both contain antioxidant properties. When combined, they in turn work to enhance the body’s defence mechanisms. They help combat disease-causing free radicals. This is essential for the heart, liver and kidneys.
This concoction helps facilitate healthy digestion. It protects the gut from worms and parasites and ensures the growth of healthy bacteria. The flavonoids present in Jamun accelerate the healing of ulcers and help soothe the digestive tracts.
Vinegar is a source of antioxidants and defends the system against oxidative stress. Apple Cider Vinegar or ACV is a type of vinegar made from cider.
