Bottle gourd is believed to help the liver function in a balanced fashion.

The juice from the leaves help cure jaundice and the juice from the gourd helps reduce graying of hair.

The gourd juice, helps treat burning sensation in the urinary passage if consumed with lime juice.

It reduces fatigue and keeps you fresh, especially during summer.

It helps fight constipation, as it is fiber rich. Because of its fiber and low fat content, Ayurveda highly recommends this food for diabetic patients and young children.

Ayurveda also recommends the juice of this gourd in the treatment of acidity, indigestion and ulcers as it serves as an alkaline mixture.

Indian traditional medicine claims that bottle gourd acts as a nerve tonic and can help improve obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). This claim has been confirmed by a study published in the journal Pharmacognosy Research where the investigators found that the plant possesses anti-compulsive (anti-OCD) activity although they are not certain about the mechanism of action of this plant.

Bottle gourd is also considered one of the best weight loss foods since it is 96 percent water and provides just 12 calories per 100g of serving.
It is rich in, thiamin, vitamin C, zinc, iron and magnesium thus helping in improving overall health.

The juice from bottle gourd leaf helps in curing baldness and aids in preventing tooth decay.

So the good old “lauki”, though neglected the most, has both healing and cosmetic benefits that many people are unaware of. These easy growing climbers have made a great impact on the domestic gardening segment as well, due to its enormous health benefits.
