Hey folks, i heard Bottle gourd contains 96% of water and 12 calories per 100g of serving so the remaining will easily digestible fiber.So it is the easily digestive food. This bottle gourd juice helps to reduce the weight and belly. And it reduces the BS (blood sugar) level for diabetes easily. Any dishes folks using bottle gourd other than raw juices???
