Jamun, also known as black plum, is a highly nutritious, refreshing and succulent fruit that has many health benefits. Powder from the Jamun bean helps lower sugar level, purify the blood, aids stomach problems and regulates blood pressure. Its anti-inflammatory and astringent properties help maintain healthy cholesterol levels.
Jamun found a special mention in Ramayana. This famous epic prized it as the ‘Fruit of Gods’ as Lord Rama survived by eating this berry during his 14 years of exile in the forest.
