One thought on “Ayurvedic Medicine: Jambul

  1. Feel great to read on Jambul. Here in India fresh Jambul or Jamun is a favorite fruit and loved by all. I find your the benefits explained by you quite helpful as most of us only know of its help in control of diabetes. In our Ayurveda shops they sell finely powdered seeds of Jamun.

    Thanks and regards!
