Benefits of the Eggplant

The eggplant aids in digestion because it contains fiber, just like many other vegetables. Fiber is very important for stomach health as well as for regular bowel movement. It increases your bowel movements so they pass more easily through the digestive tract, while also stimulating peristaltic motion, which is the contraction of the smooth muscles that help food to be pushed out of the body. Another thing that fiber does is, it stimulates the secretion of gastric juices that allow the absorption of nutrients and the processing of food.

Eggplant is also great for weight loss since it contains low amounts of cholesterol and fat. Fiber also helps because it’s very filling, and thus inhibits the release of ghrelin. Ghrelin is a hormone which tells our brain we’re hungry. So by making us full and reducing our appetite, eggplant is greatly beneficial for weight loss, as well as reducing the chance of overeating.

Other things that eggplants contain are nasunin and chlorogenic acid. They are antioxidants that have exhibited inhibitory activity against free radicals, as well as having antiviral and antibacterial qualities.
