Masoor dal is a storehouse of nutrients like protein, folic acid, iron and zinc. Protein is required for the formation of new cells, their growth and maintenance. Folic acid and iron on the other hand build up the hemoglobin that carry oxygen and supply nutrients to our body. Zinc enhances the activity of our immune cells. Together all these nutrients help to boost immunity. Perhaps its time to say, "a cup of masoor dal a day keeps diseases at bay!"
