Hello,Horse gram commonly called as kulattha in ayurveda.It has kshaya rasa predominantly, is vata kapha shamak in action and rakta pitta kopaka that is helps in decreasing the vata kapha dosha and decreases the rakta and pittadosha.Chemically, the seeds of horse gram contains crude proteins, pentosan,urease and phosphorus and water soluble gum along with other chemicals like genistein, dalberioidin, phasw and collidin.Since they contain good amount of proteins and fibers, the regular intake helps in reducing the medha dhatu from body and thus helps in reducing the blood sugar levels.The fibrous content helps in relieving the constipation. It acts as immunity booster and helps in maintaining renal health.sprouted horse gram should be taken in a quantity of one cup per day as the sprouted grams reduces the phytochemicals amount and thus increases its nutritional value.Don't take medicines mentioned above or any form of raw horse gram if you suffer from hyperacidity as may cause nasal bleed.
