Although gourds are often overlooked in the produce aisle, they are rich sources of vitamin C, vitamin B, folate, and various other immune-boosting nutrients. For someone suffering from tuberculosis, a strong immune system is essential, as is a high Vitamin B intake, to ensure that the rest of the body’s organ systems are working properly. Gourds can be added to the diet in a variety of ways, either as a vegetable in stews or curries, or sliced up and served with meat dishes.
