If you go out to explore Indian soil, you will find a lot of foods that meet all the requirements of our health and diet. We already consume their regular diet, but there are many hidden gems that are often ignored. Suran or Yama or Jimikand is one of them. The tuber root is said to be a powerhouse of health-rewarding properties, yet it has not found the space it deserves in its everyday eating menu. People who have eaten it or eaten it regularly swear by its scrumptious taste. We do not see any reason why it should not be in our plate like all other common vegetables.
Why should you consume gimmick? Health benefits of gymnastics:
Like many tubers, gimmick is considered to be full of fiber, vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients. It is surprising that veggies can also help improve immunity and reduce weight. Celebrity nutritionist Rujuta Divekar once posted a post on social media describing the various benefits of consuming gimmick. She said that the pinkish-brown tuber is rich in minerals such as zinc, potassium, selenium, phosphorus and calcium, all of which help to increase memory and combat inflammation in the body. It can also aid the digestive system by providing bacteria friendly to the intestine. And not only this, gymnastics can also help you get clean and beautiful skin.
