26 Aug ‘22 By AnikNutrition
  1. Indian Amla versus Acai Berry

Acai berries are known for their anti-aging and weight loss properties, but Indian Amla does not fall short either. The benefits of this Indian gold fruit are numerous. For example, Amla is a powerful immune system booster and is 20x more vitamin C-rich than Acai Berry. The high antioxidant content of Amla also makes it a better choice over Acai, right? Clearly, Indian Amla is a winner when it comes to nutrition! Amount recommended for daily consumption: 1-2 amlas

  1. Buckwheat versus Oats

Buckwheat or Kuttu is the famous fasting food of Gujarat, so you simply can't leave without trying it. The high amino acid content of buckwheat makes it a premium food. Start eating buckwheat today, and your gut and blood circulation will significantly improve! While oats are also very beneficial to your digestive system, buckwheat's magnesium and potassium content are higher than that of oats. Daily recommended intake: 70-100g

  1. Beet Leaves versus Kale

Not just the western world but several parts of urban India have also discovered Kale's appeal. Whether you're having salads or trendy green smoothies, you'll see Kale as their main ingredient. Kale is regarded as the most powerful of all green vegetables due to its highly concentrated levels of Vitamin A and Vitamin K.

Nonetheless, Beet leaf still reigns supreme in our Indian landscape when it comes to high nutritional values, being more healthy as opposed to Kale in many ways. Besides being low in calories, beet leaves also contain a high quantity of Vitamin E and potassium, making them an excellent choice. Recommended intake: Aim to add in meals at least 2-3 times a week
