New Delhi: In a world of instant food where everyone eats everything refined and processed citing convenience and time crunch, there are many who struggle with constipation issues often. Constipation is when one fails to pass stools regularly – a minimum of three times a week. And while eating high-fibre foods is key to treating constipation, along with being hydrated, there is a desi, Ayurveda-backed remedy for this situation. In a recent Instagram post, nutritionist Lovneet Batra penned the benefits of this magical remedy for constipation – it is chaksu seeds.

Chaksu seeds and leaves are rich in linolenic and linoleic acid which work wonders in treating and managing hypertension. Usually, high-fibre foods when juiced, lose their ability to bulk up stools and prevent digestive distress. But this desi food is capable of treating constipation as well and that too in every form – be it whole seeds, powder, or juice form.

“Cassia Absus commonly known as CHAKSU SEEDS are desi superfood found in almost all the states of India particularly North-West India, in the foot of Himalayas and in Ceylon. Chaksu seeds have many medicinal properties that can be used in the form of decoction, powder and even juice,” Lovneet Batra wrote in the caption.

The expert went on to list the health benefits of chaksu seeds:

  1. Beats inflammation
  2. Prevents constipation
  3. Has an anti-hypertensive effect
  4. Has an antiglycation effect on the body

Chaksu seeds are known to have medicinal, anti-inflammatory properties that are diuretic in nature and work well for the liver, kidney, urinary tract infections and also boost blood circulation. Some people also rely on these seeds for skin and eye health. Talk of the portions, ideally one should only rely on one to two grams of chaksu seeds with an exception for pregnant women and those with chronic health problems as these can drain out water from the body.
