Health Benefits of Bottle gourdBottle gourds possess a high amount of fiber which prevents constipation, piles, and flatulence. The cholesterol and fat in Bottle gourd are very low.

The antihyperglycemic activity of methanol extract of L. siceraria was evaluated in hyperglycemic rats. The extract was given at doses of 200 and 400 mg/kg per os (p.o.) to streptozotocin-induced hyperglycemic rats for a period of 14 days. Fasting blood glucose (FBG) was measured on days 0, 4, 8, and 15 after treatment. There occurred signiﬁcant reduction (P < 0.001) in FBG levels; other biochemical tests (SGPT, SGOT, ALP, total cholesterol, triglycerides), antioxidant assay (lipid peroxide, catalase, and glutathione), and histological study of the liver, the liver, kidney, and pancreas tissue, supported the conclusion. The research showed the potent antihyperglycemic activity of L. siceraria, which is probably attributable to its rich ﬂavonoid content.
Helpful for allergiesThe anti-asthmatic and anti-allergic activity of the aqueous extract of leaf of L. siceraria (LSA) was evaluated in different animal models. The histamine and acetylcholine-induced bronchoconstriction model in guinea pigs, the compound 48/80 induced mast cell degranulation model in rats, and the paw edema model in mice were used. The results of the study revealed a signiﬁcant bronchodilator activity by LSA at doses of 150 and 300 mg/kg. Anti-inflammatory activity was observed at doses of 50, 75, and 100 mg/kg (intraperitoneal injection) against compound 48/80 induced paw edema in rats. These results support the traditional claim of the drug as a treatment for asthmatic disorders. It was also reported that the triterpene bryonolic acid, an anti-allergic compound, was isolated from the callus culture of the roots of L. siceraria.
