How does pickle affect our health?
We enjoy pickles for their unique blend of flavours and inviting aromas, but what most people don’t realize is that they also have a huge impact on our health (in the best way!)
If you are looking for a little sweet, spicy, tangy kick to have with your meals, adding pickles to your diet is a nutritious alternative to the other junk foods available in the market today.
Not only does it satiate your cravings, but it also offers several advantages. Firstly, pickles are packed with essential minerals and nutrients such as Vitamins K, B12 to produce healthy bacteria, C for boosting immunity, and A for good eyesight; it also comprises minerals such as iron, calcium, and potassium which are often overlooked in our daily diets.
Pickles are also extremely beneficial for your digestive system. They assist in the process of digestion by cleansing the tract and preventing problems such as constipation, acidity, and bloating.
Packed with antioxidants, pickles boost our immunity by combating diseases, including some chronic ailments like cancer, strokes, and heart-related problems.
Who knew something so delicious could also be so good for you? The next time you crave something tangy with your meals, don’t be shy in adding a little (or a lot) of your favourite achaar!
