Pune : During the winter season, our bodies easily digest food, leading to a tendency to consume anything available. However, it’s important to be mindful that consuming unhealthy food can result in various health issues. This prompts us to consider what to eat during winter to maintain good health.

Edible Gum and fenugreek seeds are considered superfoods for their numerous health benefits. Gum is known for its ability to keep the body warm, boost metabolism, promote strong bones, and prevent constipation. Similarly, Fenugreek Laddu is a winter superfood with a rich content of vitamins and minerals, including amino acids, calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, and various vitamins (B6, C, etc).

Fenugreek and gum ladoos are essential delicacies for this season. Fenugreek, combined with jaggery, helps in boosting the body’s mineral levels and is abundant in calcium, enhancing bone strength.
