Properties of Buttermilk according to Ayurveda——— - It is light to digest.
- it is sour in taste which helps to digest food better.
-it is heating for the body, which also assists in breaking down food especially heavy foods like meat, fried, pulses, etc . - it is fermented, so contains healthy bacteria that replenish our gut microbiome.
