Satiety & weight management: Chickpeas can keep you satiated for a longer period, which can help you avoid overeating and unnecessary weight gain.

Prevents anemia: Without iron, the body can not provide oxygen to its cells, which can lead to iron deficiency anemia. Symptoms include weakness and fatigue. In severe cases, life threatening complications can arise.

Improves UR heart health: Fibre, potassium, B vitamins, copper, magnesium and selenium in chickpeas all promote heart health. Fibre helps in reducing any heart disease risks and also lowers blood cholesterol levels.

Keeps UR gut healthy: Cucumbers are filled with a lot of fiber, which is simply great for ur guts health. But, when you eat them in pickle form, they’re really superstars in this category. Pickles are made of cucumbers plus the right mix of pickling spices, salt and vinegar. “The fermentation process makes them perfect fuel for your gut. The “good bacteria” in your gut is associated with a host of benefits like better immunity and functional bowels.

Regulates insulin levels: Since cucumbers are rich in water, they expand in UR stomach and thus reduce cravings for sugary snacks, which is a great way to regulate insulin levels.
