One aubergine provides more than 5% of the daily requirement of thiamin, copper, manganese, dietary fibre, vitamin B-6 and C.
It is a good source of many vitamins and minerals.
In addition, aubergines contain phenolic chemicals, which are antioxidants.
Free radicals are unpredictable chemicals that can damage cells if they accumulate in sufficient quantities. Antioxidants are molecules that help the body remove this danger. Foods high in antioxidants can help prevent several diseases.
According to Healthline, frequent consumption of garden eggs can help treat the following four health conditions.
1. heart problems.
Aubergine is high in fibre, potassium, vitamin C, vitamin B-6 and antioxidants, all of which are beneficial for heart health.
A 2019 study found that eating foods high in flavonoids such as anthocyanins reduced inflammatory markers that increase the risk of heart disease.
Another study found that women who consumed more anthocyanins had lower blood pressure and less arterial stiffness than women who consumed less of these compounds.
Polyphenols in aubergines are thought to help fight cancer. Anthocyanins and chlorogenic acid protect cells against the harmful effects of free radicals.
This helps to stop the development of tumours and the spread of malignant cells.
Anthocyanins help by inhibiting enzymes that promote the spread of cancer cells, reducing inflammation and inhibiting the growth of new blood vessels in tumours.
Increasing fibre intake can help manage weight.
A diet high in fibre makes you feel fuller for longer and reduces the tendency to overeat.
Eggplant is high in fibre and low in calories, making it an ideal low-calorie meal.
However, aubergines absorb a lot of oil when fried. If you want to lose weight, try cooking it in a different way, such as on the grill or in an air fryer.
4. eye disease.
Zeaxanthin and lutein, two excellent antioxidants that are good for the eyes, are also found in aubergines.
Lutein appears to play an important role in maintaining eye health and may help prevent age-related macular degeneration, which can reduce vision in older people.
Aubergine is slightly bitter. 'Sweating' aubergines with salt removes some of the water and components responsible for the bitterness, softening the flesh.
A balanced diet containing a variety of fruits and vegetables can benefit from the addition of aubergines, which are highly nutritious.
Due to its high polyphenol content, it has a strong flavour, which some people do not like.
Sweat-steamed aubergines and other ways of seasoning and cooking aubergines can also be effective.
Despite the fact that there are no major risks associated with eating aubergines, many people eat them.
