Bottle gourd has gained quiet a bit of popularity these days because of various reason.The  most important for girls and women is that it helps in weight loss and brings glow to the skin.Bottle gourd is 96.1% water and 100gm of serving of it contains just 12 calories .Therefore if you are keen on losing weight then include lots of it in your diet.

In India it is known as lauki,dudhi (दूदी) or ghiya (घीया) in Hindi,churakka (ചുരക്ക) in Malayalam,Jatilao in Assamese, lau in Bengali, Sora kaaya (సొర కాయ) in Telugu, dudhi-Bhopala (दुधी) in Marathi, sorekayi in Kannada, and suraikkaai (சுரைக்காய் colloq. sorakkay) in Tamil.(From www.wikipedia.com)


*Bottle gourd reduced hunger pangs as it is full of fiber and water.It is most effective if it is taken in morning with breakfast or in the evening before dinner.Bottle gourd has been given prominent place in the Indian Ayurvedic medical system and therefore was used by our ancestor in many things.
*Dull skin-In my previous article I discussed about the causes of dull skin and how one can get the glow back.Having bottle gourd juice every day or every alternate day can bring back the lost glow of the skin or enhance the color of the skin as well.
You can check out the step by step pictures of bottle gourd juice in this video.


Other benefits of having bottle gourd juice are:-
*Eating bottle gourd helps in curing urinary disorders by having the above juice.If one is suffering from high acidity or burning sensation then by drinking this juice one can combat the problem.
*Problems like diarrhea can be solved by drinking its juice.
*Drinking bottle gourd juice with salt keeps one refreshed and cool during summer.
* If you are suffering from any digestive problem or if one is diabetic then bottle gourd juice can help the diseased person.
*Dietary fiber present in the bottle gourd helps in constipation, flatulence and even piles.
*Juice of bottle gourd helps in breaking calculus (stone) in the body.

  1. bottle gourd juice has many benefits… i have tried it myself…. but one precaution u have to take is never eat or drink juice of bottle gourd which is bitter in taste (lauki which is kadwi in taste)as it can cause serious harm… so always taste a piece before making juice or anything. one more benefit of bottle gourd is when mixed with 3-4 spoons of amla it helps in hairloss and dandruff problem and u can get healthy hair.when the weather is cold you can slightly warm up the bottle gourd juice even with amla and drink…. because it is cool in nature……. and if looking for weight loss then avoid using salt…..

  2. Hey Harsha..I also heard about adding amla juice in lauki juice for hair fall problem but I thought it will be too bitter in taste so I didnt used it..It must be really bad with amla isn't..You know I drank Lauki juice for aroung 2 months and lost 3 kg of weight..this is an amazing drink and I am glad that Anamika mentioned it up..Also it is great of you that you have mentioned more points in it..

  3. Thanks Gunjan for liking the work..Harsha has great knowledge in these things ..I also want to add few things which I think I should have mentioned in it..1.If you don't like the taste of lauki juice increase the apple quantity.It is easier to drink it with apple..2.Use the left over residue on your face.It has apple, carrot and mint ..All three are great for the skin..:)

  4. hey gunjan…. it tastes a little bitter but nt very bad u can have it, as lauki juice is neutral in taste so it will not have much impact after mixing amla i myself have drank it…….so jus drink it as a medicine… and get the maximum benefits…. he he…

  5. hi sandeep it works, if u drink lauki juice ,withut changing u r food habbits, then u can’t see change , i will advise you pls take less oily food, at least have walk 4 20 mins daily,so u r catalyst (lauki) will work effectively.

    actually i have heard dat it helps in increasing height bt just want to confirm.. plz repl asap

    • No, it doesn’t I’m sorry. See,height is mostly dependent on genes. But it is said that having a proper diet including lots of calcium and protein can help you in gaining height and also a proper sleeping schedule is needed. But , I’m afraid that that’s too apllicable to a particular age and you’be already reached it. So just be confident and trust me short is really cute.

  32. My problem is that I try my best to reduce my body but thing helpe my weight is 65kg and height is 5fttell me how bottle guard juice help me

    • Actually, till date scientists have only experimented bottle gourd juice on animals and the results are positive when it comes to reduction of weight gain according to the facts. But it does has many other virtues too. And for weight loss, you have to focus completely on low carb, high in protein diet. A little exercise will help you get the weight you crave for. 🙂

  33. hi,

    i want to reduce my weight , if i take lauki juice will that help me .. i have started driking green tea in a day atleast twice and going to start with grapefriut as i heard that it also helps to educe weight. So will this all work for me to reduce my weight

    Do reply..
    thanks
