Amid the outbreak of COVID-19, it is crucial to take all the necessary precautions to keep the risk of cold and flu at bay. Fortunately, Indian kitchens are always stocked up with simple ingredients that could help to boost immunity and keep us healthy. One such ingredient is mint or pudina. Mint has powerful antioxidant properties. It is excellent to manage blood sugar levels and treat skin conditions. In summers, especially, it is a very good idea to add mint to one’s diet. Mint also helps in healthy weight management.
