Purvina Arrowroot Powder

Kerala's traditional remedy for digestive wellness - Arrowroot

In our fast-paced world, it's common to seek quick fixes for health issues, often resorting to medications for even mild digestive discomforts. But what if we could turn to a more gentle, time-tested solution that allows our body to heal naturally?

Arrowroot Powder - the natural gut health guardian

Enter Arrowroot powder, Kerala's unsung hero in the realm of digestive health. This humble powder has been a staple in local households for generations, revered for its ability to soothe indigestion, bloating, and diarrhoea. Its gentle nature makes it suitable for everyone, from infants to adults, offering a safe and side-effect-free approach to gut health.

  • For adults: An arrowroot drink can be easily prepared by mixing the powder in boiling water. This simple concoction works wonders in resetting the gut, especially after episodes of food poisoning or mild digestive issues.
  • For kids: To make the remedy more palatable for little ones, try preparing an arrowroot jelly. Use slightly less water and sweeten it with honey or palm jaggery. This not only enhances the taste but also adds to the digestive benefits.

Beyond digestive relief

Arrowroot powder's benefits extend beyond just soothing an upset stomach. As you recover from more severe digestive issues, this versatile powder can be used to thicken gravies and soups, offering a nutritious and gluten-free alternative to wheat flour.

Embracing Nature's healing power

In our modern quest for health, the traditional Kerala remedy of Arrowroot powder stands as a testament to the wisdom of our ancestors and the healing power of nature. By choosing this simple yet effective remedy, we're embracing a holistic approach to health that has been proven effective through time in the beautiful landscapes of Kerala. The journey back to simplicity and nature's embrace invites us to rediscover the profound yet gentle healing properties of traditional practices.
