Myths have been a part of Indian culture from the beginning of time and most of us have inherited a number of anecdotes from our grandparents. Pieces of advice, household remedies and myths have been passed from generation to generation – sometimes without a verified basis in science.
Many of the questions revolve around consumption of buttermilk in the colder months. As temperatures go lower, this summer staple quickly moves higher up on the ‘to avoid’ list in many households. But is it really correct to relegate this nutrition-packed, multi-faceted beverage in your diet for few months every year?
Curd is the primary ingredient in buttermilk, making it a power-house of nutrients like vitamins, minerals, calcium, potassium and magnesium. It is high in protein, low in fat, low carb too and an ideal combination to help our body maintain energy levels. Akshayakalpa Organic Probiotic buttermilk is crafted by slow-churning Akshayakalpa probiotic curd that gives us our plain buttermilk which is natural and nourishing. We also have our spiced buttermilk that is fermented with a blend of spices like chillies, coriander, ginger and Himalayan pink salt to make it tasty, easy-to-digest and healthy.
Buttermilk contains probiotics which provide you with good and helpful bacteria to maintain gut flora. This aids in digestion, combats acidity, controls blood sugar and helps with other gastro-intestinal problems. Vitamin C which is also found in curd, along with the probiotics, gives your body an immunity boost – something that is essential during winters and the monsoons.
Well, our immunity is likely to get affected due to the change in season and many resort to taking antibiotics as a treatment for the flu.
Dehydration may be a word one associates with the heat of summer. But it is possible to get dehydrated during winters too. The body needs appropriate amounts of liquids and salts to maintain optimum hydration. Sipping on Akshayakalpa Organic buttermilk is a convenient and tasty way to add liquids to your everyday diet.
