Bottle gourd, being alkaline in nature, helps in reducing the acidity of urine and has a cooling effect in summers. Its water content keeps the body hydrated. No doubt its a favourite vegetable in the summer season. Consuming its juice has lots of health benefits. If the liver is inflamed due to any condition, it helps the liver to come back to its normal condition. The juice is very healthy for the heart and high blood pressure, thus a cardio tonic. Nothing like an organic bottle gourd.
