Healthy food

Bloating, gas, indigestion & acidity are the most common issues we Indians have due to our masala rich foods, oil-laden rotis & gravies. And also we don't hydrate ourselves properly for the food to travel smoothly down our intestine.

Following are the list of the foods that should be eaten every day or the night before in order to clear your bowels every day.

  • Mint: It eases symptoms associated with indigestion.
  • Dill seeds: Take Saunf (variyali) & Jeera & roast gently on a tawa. Take 1/2 tsp. of this mixture at one time. This mixture can be taken every 3-4 hours.
  • Honey Lemon remedy: Combine equal quantities of honey along with 1 Tsp. lemon juice & 1 tsp. of ginger juice. Take 1 tsp. of this mix. 2-3 times a day to fight indigestion.
  • Chutneys: Chutney is an important ingredient that accompanies Indian food. The chutney that helps in digestion should include mint, coriander, green chilies, lemon juice & ginger. All these ingredients have components that help your body absorb nutrients, cool the digestive tract & enhance the body.
