Ridge gourd provides numerous health benefits, despite the fact that it does not appeal to many people’s taste sensibilities. It contains important nutrients such as dietary fibers, water, vitamin A, vitamin C, iron, magnesium, and vitamin B6. It has a minimal calorie, saturated fat, and cholesterol content by nature.
When applied externally, the leaves of the ridge gourd are highly good at reducing inflammation. Internal inflammations, cough, and swelling of the lymph glands can all be relieved by eating the vegetable.
