See How Garden Egg Can Boost Your Health


garden egg

It is over a decade I ate garden egg stew. Without doubts in my mind, it is one of the healthiest stews ever made for me by my grandmother. Garden egg otherwise known as egg plant fruit has  somewhat  lost  its  place  in  the  diet  of  Nigerians  especially  the  younger  generation. Grandma usually tells me that most times whatever is sweet to the mouth is poisonous to the stomach and whatever is bitter to the mouth provides a lot of advantages to our body. Clearly, this is the case for the lack of adequate patronage of this bitter tasting fruit particularly among the younger generations who prefer chocolates candies and other sugar coated products which is killing them slowly.

Solanum melongena  as  it  is  botanically  called is  widely  distributed in  the  temperate  and tropical regions. In many west African countries, the fruit is known as bitter tomato and it is specifically grown for food, nutritional and medicinal purposes.

The Health Benefits Of Garden Egg (Solanum melongena)

Each day in my email box, I keep getting messages concerning “how to lose some fats”. This continues to surprise me as many of the senders are hoping to hear me say to them of certain nutraceuticals they need to buy that will take 20 pounds of fats off their bodies within 5 days,where as a potent food like garden egg does not only stare at them but is at there beck and call.

It is good for weight loss

Research carried out on laboratory rats or mice both home and abroad with this fruit has corroborated the fact that it has the capacity to make humans lose weight due to its high fiber content and low calorie value. Without gainsaying, this is the perfect recipe for achieving weight loss within a reasonable short period of time.  My advice is if you find the fruit difficult to chew in its natural form due to its bitter taste, you could make a sauce out of it. Trust me it tastes nice.
