Tahira Kashyap shares her bottle guard toxicity experience, warns about its potentially harmful effects



As fans and followers, we look up to celebrities for many reasons. Some are our style icons while some are fitness junkies who inspire us to hit the gym. And while the industry thrives on glitz and glamour, there are often cases when stars come forward and show a human side to their journey. In her most recent video, writer-filmmaker Tahira Kashyap came forward with a similar story about an unfortunate experience that landed her in the ICU due to consumption of bitter gourd.

It is no secret that Tahira is a fitness enthusiast and is often seen sharing related and useful posts about her healthy diet and lifestyle. But the reel she recently posted on her Instagram profile is meant to caution you about a healthy drink that may be doing you more harm than good. The drink discussed here is lauki (milk) drink. The filmmaker had to face adverse consequences for consuming the drink due to an incident called gourd poisoning.

Gourd poisoning occurs when you drink/eat bitter gourd juice. Drinking bitter gourd juice can cause vomiting, diarrhea, upper gastrointestinal bleeding, hypotension and suffering from other fatal reactions. Tahira Kashyap told that as soon as she drank her regular morning milky drink, the reactions started immediately. She vomited several times, her blood pressure dropped to around 40 and had to be admitted to the ICU.

He further warned Instagram users not to believe in health myths and blindly follow diet fads. We hope you will take notes from Tahira Kashyap and skip the bottle gourd which tastes slightly bitter than usual. It is always a good idea to consult a qualified health expert or qualified nutritionist in case of any confusion.

Be safe, stay healthy!
