Balloon Vine Cardiospermum halicacabum (Sapindaceae) is a woody perennial fast growing vine distributed almost globally in the tropics. The roots, leaves, stem, and seeds of this plant are employed as herbal medication. Significance of balloon vine and nutritional status was carried out in selected menopause women in the age group of 40-60 years. Positive correlation between waist hip ratio and fat intake of the selected menopausal women with arthritis was noted. The present study also revealed dietary inadequacy among the selected menopausal women particularly energy, calcium and iron. Therefore, it is necessary to identify the inadequacy of food intake among menopausal women which help plan and implement healthy choice of eating especially calcium rich foods given through proper nutrition education during pre and post-menopausal period.

Abstract


Balloon Vine Cardiospermum halicacabum (Sapindaceae) is a woody perennial fast growing vine distributed almost globally in the tropics. The roots, leaves, stem, and seeds of this plant are employed as herbal medication. Significance of balloon vine and nutritional status was carried out in selected menopause women in the age group of 40-60 years. Positive correlation between waist hip ratio and fat intake of the selected menopausal women with arthritis was noted. The present study also revealed dietary inadequacy among the selected menopausal women particularly energy, calcium and iron. Therefore, it is necessary to identify the inadequacy of food intake among menopausal women which help plan and implement healthy choice of eating especially calcium rich foods given through proper nutrition education during pre and post-menopausal period.
