Here are some health benefits of the vegetable:

1. It is a great source of phytonutrients, a substance found in certain plants which are believed to be beneficial to human health and help prevent various diseases. The vegetable is also low in calories as it contains roughly 17 calories per 100 gm. “Kantola is also high in water content, so is beneficial if you are trying to lose weight,” adds nutritionist Seema Singh.

2. As it is usually found during the monsoons, it is helpful in keeping seasonal cough, cold and other allergies at bay, due to its anti-allergen and analgesic properties.

3. It also reduces blood sugar levels in diabetic patients since it is rich in plant insulin. “Anything that is high in fibre and is loaded with water content is a great choice for a diabetic diet, and kantola ticks all the boxes,” says Singh.

4. Carotenoids, like Lutein, present in this vegetable help in prevention of various eye diseases, cardiovascular diseases and even cancers. Being a source of vitamin C, a natural antioxidant, it removes toxic free radicals from the body reducing the chance of cancer
