If I tell you that you should drink wood apple juice because it is so beneficial and really good for your body, you will probably not know which fruit I am talking about. Unless you Google it. That, or you will think it is some exotic fruit that you must try. Little would you know that it is a fruit that you have probably seen a lot during your childhood - in summer, on fruit vendors' carts, even growing on trees. Only you won't know it as wood apple, you probably know it as bael.
Bael fruit is really in right now, mostly because it is one of those things that have caught on all of a sudden. There are juice vendors roaming around selling it, it is available in grocery markets, and even with the fruit carts that are parked on the streets.
Why is it the new rad thing? Mostly because it is so good.
It is high in a lot of nutrients
Vitamins, calcium, phosphorus, fibre, protein and iron - the fruit is a treasure trove of goodness. With all this, it helps in digestion, cleans up the intestines, and is a good cure for diarrhoea, constipation, and indigestion.
It purifies the blood
Wood apple juice with water and some sugar helps remove toxins from the body, thereby purifying the blood. It also helps fight bacterial and viral infections.
Controls diabetes and relieves respiratory problems
If the other two weren't enough, wood apple juice also helps managing the sugar content in the body; your insulin and glucose levels are managed therefore helping control diabetes. Even the phlegm in the body is loosened up therefore clearing the respiratory system.
Get a glass, the taste is pretty good, and the smell is overwhelmingly sweet.
