Buttermilk - The Wonder Drink for a Healthy Tummy

Are you one of those who suffer acidity, indigestion, and gas problem on regular basis? Well, Ayurveda offers you a wonderful remedy in buttermilk or chaas - a ‘wonder drink’ that has been part of Indian cuisine for thousands of years.

Buttermilk is a great drink to balance the tri-doshas. It ignites the jatharagni (the digestive fire) and gives relief from problems like indigestion, acidity, constipation and loss of appetite. According to Ayurveda, incorporating buttermilk into your daily diet will keep you away from all digestive disorders and help you combat dehydration and fatigue.
