Health benefits of Brinjal aka Eggplant
Brinjal, eggplant, aubergine- call it what you want; the humble brinjal indeed has many shades of purple to it (literally)!
A vegetarian delight and perhaps the most misunderstood vegetable of all, brinjal has faced sarcasm, criticism and outright demonization especially from Ayurveda practitioners.
It is a fact that brinjal can trigger serious flare-ups in those with eczema, skin allergies, abdominal bloating and certain cases of arthritis. However, it has also a horde of unique health benefits which are too good to be ignored.
Brinjal for diabetes
Brinjal has plenty of fiber and is low on sugars/carbohydrates. Hence, it helps in regulating bloods sugar levels by slowing down absorption of carbohydrates.
