MORE HEALTH BENEFITS OF BITTER KOLA

In my last posting , I said I was going to inform you of other health benefits of bitter kola and I am KEEPING TO MY PROMISE.
Mrs Chinere Nwokeke,A researcher with the Nigerian Natural Medicine development agency (NNMDA),told news agency of Nigeria that bitter kola could be used in treating opportunistic infections associated with HIV and AIDS because of its antibacterial detoxification and cleansing properties . She mentioned that the saponin in bitter kola is responsible for its cleansing effect .Saponin is mainly used as a liver tonic .It also enhances the function of the liver and gallbladder .Before now, bitter kola was mainly consumed by the elderly probable because they felt it could elongate life .but I would not blame them for thinking that .Any natural food product that has the inherent ability to prevent several bacterial infections in the body ,invariable can prolong life.It also possess anticancer effects and can be taken to prevent proliferation of cancer cells.
For children, when ground and mixed with honey ,it can be used in the treatment of mumps and measles .It should be taken orally and also applied externally in the case of mumps.And for those of you that enjoy singing, if at anytime you develop a coarse voice ,take some bitter kola as it has the ability to clear the voice by stimulating the production of mucus along the lining of the vocal tube which softens the dry throat.Apart from its fantastic effect on the body, bitter kola is also known to be a snake repellent especially for those that leave in areas that are prone to snake attacks. Finally,continuous consumption of bitter kola makes the body alkaline and the body tends to be in optimum health when it is in an alkaline state. BUT REMEMBER,GOOD HEALTH IS A CONTINUOUS HABIT NOT AN EVENT
