Badam Pisin With Milk/How to use Badam Pisin[Almond Gum]/Badam Pisin – natural body coolant

Badam pisin or Almond gum is an edible gum collected from badam/almond trees. Badam tree bark secretes the gum and it gets dried up, which is later collected and used for medicinal purposes. They look like little rocks which are white in colour and an excellent natural body coolant. The famous drink of Tamil Nadu - Jigarthanda, Rose milk etc are prepared by adding Nannari sarbat to the badam pisin. The badam pisin is soaked overnight in water which then becomes like jelly; this jelly can then be used along with sarbats.  Badam Pisin is a natural jelly which can be consumed by everyone to beat the heat and keep the body cool. This is badam pisin milk is an easy and simple home remedy during the hot summer days. My grandma used to give this for us and now I do it for my kids or for myself. Do you really want to see how the badam pisin looks like and how it turns into a jelly, then scroll down further for more photos...

    1. Hi Darshan,
      I have read in several books that it might increase your body weight, but we are not going to use it everyday, so it is just harmless. If you think your body is generating lot of heat, have it for three consecutive days and it should help you. I hope i have answered your question. Thanks a lot Darshan for stopping by...

    1. Hi Satheesh,
      I suggest you drink it with cold milk or atleast milk at room temperature, it will taste good and better rather than hot milk. May be otherwise you can try it with hot milk and do let me know as well. Thanks a lot Satheesh for stopping by and commenting, keep coming back...

    1. Hi Guru,
      Thanks for contacting me, you can surely take badam pisin to bring down your body temp. If you r non vegetarian, then make sure take in eggs everyday and eat goat meat to gain healthy weight. And also warm milk with honey will also help you gain weight. If you are vegetarian, take lots of protein rich food for healthy weight gain.But my suggestion is as you get older you will surely gain more weight. But being lean, healthy and lot of stamina is really very very good.
