Can i take halim seeds with milk for hair growth
Tarla Dalal

   We would not recommend having halim seeds with milk. Halim seeds are a good source of iron which can help in proper supply of oxygen to all cells of the body including hair. We have used lemon juice with it, as it is a good source of vitamin C which helps in iron absorption.

   Halim seeds are a good source of iron and lemon juice is a good source of vitamin C which helps in iron absorption. Hence this combination has been used in the recipe. We would not recommend using apple cider vinegar.

   Thanks for the feedback. You can have 1 serving of this drink daily. However it would be recommended to get a CBC and blood sugar test done at least once in 3 months to keep a check on your haemoglobin and sugar levels. Consult your doctor before you have this drink on a regular basis also.
