I developed a little healthy habit of eating one bitter kola after drinking my lemon water and last thing at night before I go to sleep. I started this habit about a year ago and for the past one year I HAVE NOT TREATED MYSELF FOR MALARIA.I did not really know that the bitter kola I was taking has anti- malaria properties until I started reading about the health benefits of  bitter kola and I want to share those benefits with you.

hoarseness, bronchial and   throat troubles .Several studies has discovered bitter kola to be a remedy for dysentery and osteoarthritis and an antidote for poison
