Health Benefits of Consuming Indian Pickles Daily
Can you imagine an Indian traditional meal
without pickles? Well, pickles have carved a
niche for themselves by adding a taste and flavor
in the Indian Thali and in addition to that, they
also have a vast array of ingredients such as
chopped vegetables, fruits, vinegar, spices and
other Indian traditional herbs. There are

these recipes through the generations to enjoy
the health benefits of Indian pickles.    Pickling
is one form of food preservation and in the
ancient era where refrigeration was not the
option, food preservation was the only way to
preserve various foods.  There is a wide range
of Indian pickles available in the market and due
to some key ingredients used in the making of the

Antioxidant properties  One of the key health
benefits of Indian pickles is antioxidant
properties which are preserved in the unripe
fruits and vegetables when stored fresh without
cooking. Antioxidants are micronutrients in the
body that help the body to fight against those
free radicals produced by cellular metabolism. By
consuming food with high antioxidants, you can
save your body from the free radicals which
damage the DNA by reacting with the cells.
Pickles with shallow roots are a good source of
antioxidants and you can buy them from the online
Indian grocery store.  Improves digestion  The
medical science has proved that probiotic
bacteria are friendly bacteria that improve the
digestion and also improves the metabolism rate
of the body. When you consume antibiotic
medicines, you might end up losing these friendly
bacteria along with dangerous bacteria and by
consuming Indian pickles daily, you can
compensate for this loss with probiotic bacteria.
However, you should only consume pickles without
vinegar to get this benefit. Pickles with the
fermented salt encourage the growth of probiotic
bacteria and improve the digestion system.

the Indian pickles are made of various green
leafy vegetables and herbs rich in minerals and
vitamins such as coriander leaves, curry leaves,
spinach, parsley and amaranth. Eating these
pickles daily can supply your essential vitamins
