    Let me tell you why you should prefer this drink.

Jaggery

  • Jaggery is prepared from sugarcane juice. 
  • Used as a sweetening agent in many dishes. 
  • It is rich in minerals potassium, magnesium, iron, zinc, selenium, calcium and phosphorus and antioxidants. 
  • My grandmother always suggests me to eat jaggery with peanuts or dry coconut because iron in jaggery helps to build hemoglobin in blood.

Pepper- 

  • Black pepper also contains good amount of minerals like potassium, calcium, zinc, manganese, iron, and magnesium. 
  • Good source of Vitamin- C and Vitamin- A and antioxidants.
