Bajra, or pearl millet, holds a significant place in ancient wisdom for its nutritional richness and suitability for winter consumption. 

According to Dietician Priya Bansal, “Bajra is one of India’s most widely grown millets and has various health benefits. It is an excellent flour option for people who want to maintain a healthy weight during the winter.” 

Here are seven benefits of eating bajra during the winter season.

  • 3. Digestive Health: Its high fibre content aids digestion, prevents constipation, and supports gut health, which can be particularly beneficial in winter.
  • 4. Immune Support: Loaded with antioxidants and immune-boosting properties, bajra helps fortify the body against winter-related illnesses.
  • 5. Regulates Blood Sugar: Bajra has a low glycemic index, assisting in stabilizing blood sugar levels, an essential aspect during the winter months.
