Chutneys are a type of condiment that originated in India, but are now popular worldwide. They are a great way to incorporate unusual fruits or medicinal herbs into meals. This chutney showcases Garcinia, a unique superfruit with a flavor reminiscent of Tamarind. It offers a delicious, tart counterpoint to most savory dishes. However, the benefits of this chutney go far beyond it’s tasty flavor.
Some of the most notable gifts of the Garcinia fruit include its ability to; increase metabolism, strengthen the digestive fire & assist the body to burn fat. When eaten with heavy, rich or fatty foods, these foods are assimilated more easily. Additionally, Garcinia is a great ally to help manage blood sugar levels & diabetes. Furthermore, the same compound that helps boost your metabolism, hydroxy citric acid, is also responsible for helping to regulate cortisol levels in your blood. Cortisol is the most prominent stress hormone & properly regulating it can help reduce the level of stress and anxiety you feel. Reducing stress in turn greatly benefits digestion. Finally, Garcinia is a great adjunct therapy in balancing healthy cholesterol levels. Put a little dollop of this amazing herbal chutney on your plate & enjoy a tasty boost to your metabolism & overall health. Best results are obtained when eaten in small amounts regularly, about 1/2 tsp with your two largest meals.*
