Improves bone health

Bhutta contains great amounts of phosphorus, magnesium, manganese and zinc; which together maintain the normal bone growth in your body. Moreover, you must know that around half of all the bones in the human body are made up of phosphate and some phosphorous is employed in maintaining bodies tissues. Hence, bhutta can be a great source of the same.

Prevents eye problems

The next time you’re enjoying the rains munching on bhutta, remember that your body needs it to keep away from eye problems that are a common occurrence during the monsoons. Corn is full of beta-carotene which is a compound that helps in the formation of Vitamin A which in turn, keeps your vision strong.

Keeps skin healthy

Bhutta also consists of Vitamin C which is crucial for skin health. It slows the rate of free radical damage and increases the production of collagen that keeps your skin healthy and wrinkle-free.

Fights anemia

One of the major reasons behind anemia is lack of iron in the body. The good news is that bhutta contains a high content of iron. This helps form red blood cells that can fight anemia. So the next time you feel unusually fatigued and lethargic, it might be because you’re anemic, so snacking on a bhutta at such times wouldn’t be a bad idea!
