Everyone is likely familiar with the name Tukh, or Tukhm-e-Malanga (Basil seeds), also commonly known as Tukhm-e-Balanga. These seeds are frequently used in traditional drinks and Falooda, especially popular during the summer season.

Many doctors recommend Tukh Malanga for treating various conditions, including rashes, inflammation, irritation, and urinary, liver, and stomach diseases. Modern science has also confirmed that it helps reduce cholesterol levels in the blood.

Dr. Muhammad Shakeel, a homeopathic practitioner from Peshawar, explains that Tukh Malanga is a natural herb with a long history of use by our ancestors. He states, "Its benefits are numerous, especially in hot weather. It improves liver and stomach health, reduces heat intensity, and cools the body and blood. Rich in fiber, it aids in weight loss and alleviates constipation as it takes longer to digest. It's considered an effective means of reducing belly fat."

Tukh Malanga is particularly useful for relieving constipation. Many people consume it during the hot season and even in the mornings to enhance liver function and maintain a cool body temperature. The recommended method is to soak one to two spoons of malanga seeds in water overnight and consume them in the morning. However, avoid adding sugar or any sweetener, as this would counteract the weight loss benefits.

While there are no known adverse effects of Tukh Malanga, using it in the winter can cause joint pain.

Nutritionally, 28 grams of malanga seeds contain 137 calories, 12 grams of carbohydrates, 4.5 grams of fat, 10.5 grams of fiber, 0.6 milligrams of manganese, and 265 milligrams of phosphorus.

These seeds are beneficial for digestion, heart health, and managing diabetes.
