Health benefits of karela (bitter gourd)

Both bitter gourd and cucumber have their own health benefits. Bitter gourd or karela is rich in vitamin C, an antioxidant that boosts immunity and promotes brain health and tissue healing, according to Healthline. It also contains provitamin A that the body converts into vitamin A, which in turn helps eyesight and skin health. Studies have also argued that it helps in managing blood sugar levels while increasing good cholesterol and decreasing bad cholesterol and total triglyceride levels. Bitter gourd is also beneficial for the skin and hair.

Health benefits of cucumber (kheera)

Cucumber, on the other hand, is also rich in vitamin C. It prevents water retention in the body and reduces swelling. It has a high water content, keeping the body hydrated, and eliminating toxins from the body. It is also rich in fibre, potassium, and magnesium which help in managing blood pressure levels. Cucumbers are also known to help in releasing excess heat in the stomach, which can otherwise cause bad breath.
