On a warm summer day, there are few things as refreshing (and yet nutritious!) as a cool sip of buttermilk.
One of India’s favourite cold beverages that dates back centuries had seen a waning in its popularity in the past few decades with shops stocking up with unhealthy carbonated and artificially-sweetened beverages. But with rising awareness of importance of hydration and the harmful effects of sugar, the glory of this traditional beverage has been restored once again!
With summer around the corner, here are 10 reasons to ditch those unhealthy, processed beverages for fresh, organic buttermilk:
- Natural coolant and prevents dehydration
Buttermilk is well-known for its ability to cool down and refresh the body during the hot summer months. Because buttermilk is made of almost 90% water and contains electrolytes such as potassium, it helps maintain hydration levels in the body, preventing dehydration.
- Boosts energy
Riboflavin – a type of Vitamin B – in buttermilk is critical for the body’s energy production systems and to help regulate amino acids (which make up proteins). Riboflavin also improves liver function and promotes detoxification.
- Good for bones
Loaded with calcium, buttermilk helps keep your bones and teeth strong and healthy. Calcium helps prevent bone degenerative diseases such as osteoporosis. Low on fat, organic buttermilk is one of the best sources of calcium for people on a weight-loss diet.
- Improves digestion and relieves acidity
The lactic acid and good bacteria in buttermilk help improve digestive health and enhance metabolism. Organic buttermilk also helps maintain regular bowel movement and helps with constipation and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). The lactic acid in buttermilk can counter acidity caused by oily and spicy food and soothe the stomach.
- Helps in weight loss and overall health
Buttermilk is rich in proteins, vitamins, and minerals while being low on calories and fat. This makes buttermilks one of the best foods to consume as a part of your fitness or weight-loss journey.
A protein and probiotics powerhouse, organic buttermilk, is a great aid in supplementing essential nutrients and boosting immunity.
