8 Health and Nutrition Benefits of Gur Chana - Your Perfect Immunity Booster

November 17, 2020 2 min read 5 Comments

There was a time when gur chana was primary food of a majority of individuals in several parts of India. !
It is one of such traditional favourite snack which is a combination of roasted chickpeas and gud (jaggery). It is a powerhouse of protein and carbohydrates which will help one get over not just pollution-related ailments but also can help boost immunity and stop cavity.

Here are some other benefits of the gud chana . 


1. Boosts immunity  

 Gur Chana is loaded with antioxidants and minerals like zinc and selenium, which successively help prevent free-radical damage and also boost resistance against infections. Jaggery also helps increase the entire count of haemoglobin within the blood.


2. It prevents constipation by aiding digestion

 Gur Chana activates the digestive enzymes in our body, thus helps in proper digestion of food. That's why our elders used to prefer eating jaggery after a meal.

It acts as a detox, because it helps cleanse the liver by flushing out nasty toxins from the body.

Jaggery Chana is loaded with antioxidants and minerals like zinc and selenium, which help prevent free-radicals (responsible for early ageing). It helps boost resistance against infections, hence building stronger immunity.


3. Gur chana in pregnancy

So, can we eat Gur Chana during pregnancy? The answer is yes, but in moderation..

Jaggery is rich in iron and contributes to your daily iron requirement . The natural source of sugar boosts the general health of the expectant mother.

It is also known to purify blood and breast milk, thereby offering nourishment to the baby during pregnancy and even after birth.


4. Strengthen the bones

The combination of jaggery and gram assists in strengthening your muscles because it features a rich content of proteins which are good for muscle health. Jaggery is rich source of potassium which helps in building your muscles and boosting metabolism.


5. Improves metabolism & memory

It is also believed that regular consumption of gur chana helps sharpen memory thanks to the presence of vitamin B6.

Vitamin B6 helps boost memory. The mixture of chana and jaggery is rich in vitamin B6 and improves your brain functionality.


6. Good for Skin 

Rather than counting on cosmetics, why not choose healthy foods that are more efficient. 

Gur has anti-ageing properties and may be a natural source of glycollic acid , which has various benefits for skin, including reducing fine lines and ageing spots also as correcting uneven skin tone. When consumed with chana, the magnesium within the chana dal boosts the anti-ageing properties, thus reducing wrinkles and fine lines for healthy, glowing skin.


7. Good for teeth 

Regular consumption of gur chana helps prevent cavity because it has high phosphorus content.

Consuming jaggery with gram benefits your teeth, making them stronger. The phosphorus content in these ingredients is important for creating your teeth stronger.


8. Good for menstruating women 

Gur Chana best for menstruating women as it makes up for the loss of blood from the body as jaggery is a rich source of iron and chickpeas are rich in protein.

Those that experience mood swings or frustration before their periods should also eat an equivalent in small amounts since it helps to release endorphins that relax one’s body.

So what are you waiting for , get your gur chana now !!
