Mint Leaves (Podina Patra) – 1Bunch
Refreshing, zingy and delightful, a dash of mint can set almost anything right. Mint is one of the oldest culinary herbs known to mankind. Its remarkable medicinal properties have made it one of the most commonly known and used herbs ever. Indians, especially are no stranger when it comes to mint. We use it in our chutneys, raita, and even garnish our biryanis with the cooling herb. According to Macrobiotic Nutritionist and Health Practitioner Shilpa Arora ND, “Mint has very powerful antioxidant properties. The leaves can be juiced or made into raita. Mint is excellent to manage blood sugar levels and treat skin conditions. In summers, one should particularly add mint to their diet. Mint is very cooling and aids in digestion and breathing disorders too.”
From boosting digestion to keeping your breath fresh for long, mint is packed with a number of benefits that make its more than just a mocktail, chutney or raita ingredient.
