    there is a lot of news now a days regarding deaths due to gourd juice+ kalera juice. My wife who has a marginal blood sugar problen is regularly taking methi seeds (powdered), amla juice and powder of jamun kernels in the morning on empty stomach.

    Ministry issues advisory based on experts’ report

    The Union Health Ministry on Tuesday (Otober 25 2011) asked people to avoid drinking bottle gourd juice if it is bitter. It is consumed in India for controlling diabetes.

    In an advisory to the public and physicians of all Indian systems of medicine, the Department of Ayurveda, Yoga, Unani, Siddha and Homoeopathy, said a small piece of bottle gourd (lauki) should be tasted, before extracting its juice, to make sure that it is not bitter. Also, it should not be mixed with any other juice, and medical help should be sought immediately if one felt discomfort, nausea, vomiting or any feeling of uneasiness after consuming lauki juice.

    The advisory is based on the report of an expert committee of the Indian Council of Medical Research, chaired by S.K. Sharma, head of the Department of Medicine, AIIMS, which was set up to investigate the safety of consuming lauki juice.

    Last year, a senior scientist died and his wife was taken ill seriously after they drank the juice which was bitter. The matter was also raised in Parliament by Botcha Jhansi Lakshmi, MP from Vizianagaram, Andhra Pradesh.

    The committee said any patient with symptoms of discomfort, nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea and gastrointestinal bleeding after consumption of lauki juice should be put on IV fluids before a detailed examination of the vital organs was carried out. Details of the quantity of the juice consumed and its taste should be recorded.

    As no specific antidote is available, physicians can manage the patients, putting them on IV fluids and blood transfusion including frozen plasma to maintain the haemodynamic and electrolyte balance, and containing gastrointestinal bleeding, according to the committee.

    Dear Sir
    I drink Lauki Juice many time in the month of July to September every year, but with the precaution that the Grower of Lauki is not using any chemical fertilizer and pesticide . The result was exlent. So please make sure use the Herbal products if it is chemical Free. The farmer is using only cow dung/ wormy compost, than you are safe.

    I dint understand something here, “Cooked lauki is cooling” now what is cooling? I hear this “cooling” everyday, but I am not able to pull anything on this from the net. Can food actually “cool” you or “heat” you up?
    They say sesame oil bath is “cooling” but sesame seed is “hot”. Papaya is also “hot”
    Can any food actually increase of decrease our body temperature?

    LAUKIi / DUDHI / BOTTLE GUARD.

    When you buy Louki from the vegetable market, it is better if you can taste a piece of the same. If it is bitter, never buy it. it is not good for health. I use louki at least two times a week, not only to prepare dishes out of it, but also sometimes to drink the juice, but care is taken to see that it is not bitter to taste.

    in the same way when you buy Ridge guard, please taste a piece of it If it is bitter, do not buy it. It is not good.

    HI Abhishree,

    There is no such evidence of Lauki juice making someone tall. It is a detox and should be treated as detox. As Lauki cleanse the digestive system and Arteries it is meant to make you active and help loose extra flab it would be a good idea to start swimming or doing streching exersice to keep one’s Back and Spinal cord in proper shape which will make you feel tall ;) .

    Good luck with your search.
