Hi, they call me curry leaves or Kadi Patta. I am a common ingredient used in almost every Indian dish to enhance the taste and flavour. My leaves are a rich source of iron and folic acid & the presence of fibre in the leaves plays a significant role in controlling your blood sugar levels.
I am a rich source of iron and folic acid which increases iron absorption and prevents anaemia. I protect your liver from oxidative stress and harmful toxins that build-up in your body due to the presence of kaempferol, a potent antioxidant. I can also lower your blood sugar levels by affecting the insulin activity. I am known to improve digestion and alter the way your body absorbs fat, thereby helping you lose weight. I am also known to be carminative in nature and thus am highly effective against indigestion. Lastly even though I have mild laxative properties, I am a great remedy for diarrhoea.
