The benefits of green vegetables need no retelling. One such healthy vegetable is bottle gourd (popularly referred to as lauki or kaddu). Known by different names like calabash, white-flowered gourd, New Guinea bean, Tasmania bean and long melon, it has a host of benefits. Not only does it have a cooling effect on the body, but is quite beneficial for the heart and even helps reduce sleeping disorders.
