According to ayurveda, bitter foods are a great combat material for rain toxins. They neutralize pita dash, help in digestion and have anti-bacterial properties.
Vegetables like snake gourd, ash gourd, bitter gourd et al are extremely nutritious and are a much better option than leafy greens during the monsoons. They are rich in minerals like calcium, magnesium, and perk up your immunity level.
