But have you ever wondered if you have to throw this leaf then why did our mothers (even our ancestors) used to add this leaf to every food preparation.

    Well, it is because; kadi patta is packed with numerous nutrients that are actually good for you. Right from helping your heart to function in a better way to enlivening your hair and skin with vitality, it is loaded with health benefits. Here are some of them.
