Shraddha Kapoor has been a busy girl this year, and yet, manages to keep up her healthy eating desi khana and fruits that makes our mouths water.
She recently posted a picture of a glass of kokum juice, her favourite post-work out energy drink. We love the idea of a traditional and desi energy drink, don’t you? Kokum has a host of skin and health benefits, and anything that is natural, good for the skin and has Shraddha’s stamp of approval, we are game to try out!
Here is why you should include kokum sherbet in your diet:
It is a weight loss aid
Kokum is a source of a derivative of citric acid that curbs your appetite and thus inhibits weight gain.
It is a storehouse of antioxidants
Kokum is a rich source of antioxidants, especially vitamin C that help in slowing the signs of ageing on the skin by producing collagen.
It is an immunity booster
Kokum is a rich source of vitamin C that helps boost your immunity.
It is an anti-inflammatory agent
It has the antioxidant garcinol that helps fight inflammation in the body, thus preventing puffy eyes and skin.
It is an extremely effective moisturiser
Kokum is effective in treating dry skin as it is a very rich emollient. It heals chapped lips, cracked heels also.
So go ahead and add kokum juice to your diets to get all these benefits.
