This winter, you might want to include another fruit in your diet. Not just for it’s taste, but also for the health benefits. Sapota (Chikoo) also known as Sapodilla, which is grown abundantly in Karnataka, can easily give all the exotic fruits a run for their money, considering the health benefits. Chikoo not just strengthens the intestines, but also boosts immunity and prevents various bacterial infections due to the presence of vitamin C. Here, we list five key reasons to include this delicious tropical fruit in your diet now.
We all know that fiber-rich foods help in digestion and aid in proper bowel movement and Sapota has a high amount of dietary fiber, which makes for an excellent bulk laxative. The high fiber content provides relief from constipation and also supports the colons’ membrane and makes it resistant to infections.
Perfect anti-inflammatory agent
According to the International Journal of Food Science and Nutrition, the high content of tannins makes sapota or chikoo an important anti-inflammatory agent, which helps in improving the condition of the digestive tract through prevention of diseases like esophagitis, enteritis, irritable bowel syndrome, and gastritis. It also reduces inflammation by reducing any swelling and pain.
Cures Cold and Cough
It has also been found that the chemical compounds present in Chikoo help in keeping congestion and chronic coughs at bay by removing the phlegm and mucus from the nasal passage and respiratory tract.
Good for the Bones
This powerhouse of minerals has additional amounts of calcium, phosphorus, and iron which are key sources required by bones to increase their endurance. Being rich in calcium, iron and phosphorus, sapota greatly helps in enhancing and strengthening the bones. Copper is essential for the growth of bones, connective tissue, and muscles. The deficiency of copper increases the chances of osteoporosis, muscle weakness, low strength, breakage, and weak joints. The studies show that the intake of copper with manganese, zinc, calcium slows the loss of bone in older women.
Acts as an Antioxidant
Being rich in nutrients, chikoo is a storehouse of Vitamin E, A and C, all of which are great for skin health and has amazing moisturising properties. The presence of antioxidants like ascorbic acid, polyphenols, and flavonoids help in reducing wrinkles and makes your skin plumper. Also, the seed oil has been found to help in moisturising scalp and softening hair. The sapodilla seed oil also helps in treating hair fall due to seborrheic dermatitis.
