Aids Digestion

Aam Panna is naturally a digestion-friendly beverage due to its high fibre content. Furthermore, the bio-active components it contains, such as aldehyde, easteras, and others, help to improve the digestive tract of the body. It contains vitamin B, which aids in intestinal cleansing and the treatment of gastrointestinal problems. When used in moderation, it can also assist in preventing diarrhoea.

Mineral Rich Beverage

Heat stroke is caused by the loss of a large number of electrolytes, particularly sodium. A glass of Aam Panna, which is high in minerals including sodium, magnesium, and potassium, can help restore the body's electrolyte equilibrium. A proper electrolyte balance is essential for providing the body with the energy it needs to perform daily tasks. Electrolytes also aid in the maintenance of a healthy pH and fluid balance in the body, as well as the reduction of weariness. A chilled glass of Aam Panna can help prevent heat stroke and electrolyte depletion.

Vitamin C in Aam Panna promotes the development of new blood cells and enhances the flexibility of blood vessels.
