Weight Loss Drink: Ash Gourd is commonly used to make a popular sweet dish which we all know as Petha. Even in Hindi, this fruit is called Petha. Ash Gourd has a mild taste, similar to the cucumber and is used mainly in Indian and Chinese cuisine. The fruit also has some unique medicinal properties, which are widely used in traditional Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine. Ash Gourd belongs to the pumpkin family and just like other fruits of this family, Ash Gourd is rich in water content. It comprises 96 per cent water and is high in fibre.
Due to its low fibre and high water content, Ash Gourd may help improve your digestion and help to lose weight effectively. It is also a rich source of soluble fibre, which decreases the digestion process and makes you feel fuller for a longer period of time.
