Wonders of Bitter Kola

Updated on October 12, 2011

The Wonders of Bitter Kola

Bitter kola is another type of kola found in Igbo land of Nigeria. Its biological name is Garcinia kola. Like the kola nut it is produced from a big tree. Unlike the kola nut it is monocotyledon. Although it is eaten widely for different purposes it has nothing to do with the tradition of any known ethnic group. It is medicinal as well as has some aspect of spiritual healing factors attached to it. Although modern sciences could try to disapprove of the belief but the issue is that "It works" whether you belief or not. I am glad to proclaim that my friends from different geographical areas who had in the past argued the possibilities of what I claimed bitter kola could do are now addicts in bitter kola usage. One general remark is that bitter kola is an Anti-Biotic. It can be eaten at anytime and again no side effects under normal condition. It is one of those medicines that have no overdose.

To spiritualists and knowledge seekers if you want to know what bitter kola could do find out we offer subscription which gives you the opportunity to buy and have instruction on what it does and how to use it.

Medicinally any body can eat as many as bitter kola as he or she prefers to consume by pilling off the outer coating of bitter kola but be mindful that as the name sounds it is really bitter. However if you can have fun eating bitter kola

you have the chances of not contacting or suffer from common cough syndromes, sour or mouth odor, stomach upset and tooth ache. If you are interested in healthy lifestyle and wellness please go to http://www.healthyspot.vacau.com/ or http://www.naturalmedicinescure.com/myblogger.html If you need specific instruction on how to derive the best benefit from Bitter Kola write to medinature2009@gmail.com

Also visit our numerous health related blogs for your health and the health of loved ones at http://www.naturalmedicinescure.com/myblogger.html

You can identify Bitter kola as nut with brownish outer cover while the inner part is yellow in color. Bitter kola contains a juicy substance which is assumed to be the active ingredient. It does not require any preservative and survives under any atmospheric condition. However if it is kept in the refrigerator, it remains fresh while if it is left in the open space it dries. In dry condition it can be revived by soaking it in water for hours or days depending upon the intensity of its dryness.

      i initially got disturbed after running an analysis on colanuts, cocoa and bitter cola to determine the content of caffeine using HIGH PERFORMANCE LIQUID CHROMATOGRAPHY(HPLC). I noticed that caffeine was absent in bitter cola but present in colanuts(2 and 3lobes) and cocoa. fortunately, i found this site in which some previous analysis also confirm d absence of caffeine. Thank God i was right anyways.

      Bitter kola helped me to regain my health back in detoxifying my body and making me agile and focused again. To top it off, it increased my erection and makes me want to tow tow tow every minute.

      There are a lot of natural herbs God gave us especially in Africa that needs to be explored and embraced in the treatment of a lot of illnesses. All we have to do is research more on them. Another great medicines are Bitter leaf, Utasi and coconut water.

      Somebody asked why we stil have many people suffering high blood pressure if bitter kola subsides it. The truth is, many people know the health benefits of bitter kola, but will never chew it cos it is bittet. People like sweet and sugary things no matter the awareness of diabetes, kidney failure, etc.

      Infact the wonders of bitter are much. For pregnant women, it helps to curtail the vomitting. It freshens their breath, soothe and relaxes the belly. The anti-biotic effect prevents infections and illness. It also strengths the muscles by the water. It prevents sore-throat, stomach ulcer. It is an internal cleanser, if taken very often. So many health benefits. Just start eating it regularly, at least 2 of it daily. You will not fail to call me to know more.

      1.Clears the throat, reduces cough and cleanses breathe after some alcoholic drinks.

      2.Detoxicates generally.

      3.Stops vomitting in early-morning-sickness stage in pregnant women.

      I am Glad to have bursted into this site it has added to the little I know about bitter kola. I have been bitter kola from when I was 4 years, I formed it as a habit which is still there at 31. When I got into the Uinversity my hostel mates who saw the way I eat this bitter nut was greatly concerned, because I can consume more than ten nuts in a day, they will always tell me that I am doing more harm than good to myself, of course they thought so, but I was not bothered one bit. To me its like eating groudnut. I even include it in my list as one of the things I need to go back to school with, so it is always in my food cupboard. Some ask me the health benefits all I knew then was that I feel relaxed after eating it, also it helps in digestion because I eat it after meal and when I consume alot of sugar.If you are drinking alcohol with bitter kola in your mouth, you can consume more bottles because you will hardly feel tipsy, even when you are drunk, bitter kola can make you feel better if you eat it. You are doing a good job anyway, keep it up.

      Indeed God created man and provided with him all dat man will eva have need of. Bitter cola is one of those natural medicines God gave to man-kind for cure of some disease. Bitter cola solves d problem of constipation and bloating,jus take a little bite of it and u wil feel better. Also from experience,snakes does nt bite anyone with bitter cola on him or in his mouth,though no scientific prove to dat.

      Besides its anti-microbial effect, bitter kola has positive effects on the liver and aids digestion aswell; but it has an adverse effect on the heart and can cause excessive weight loss depending however on consumption rate.

      I have been reading through and now I have decided to respond to some of the concerns people have about the Bitter Kola. It is not poisonous to clean your mouth with something sweet after eating the bitter Kola. My electronics teacher here in NY was suffering from sinus ... and underwent surgery. I like the man and I suggested the bitter kola and brought it to him in the class. He also mentioned to me that his German friend uses it for so many things ... After seing how I was chewing it he took one from me and as soon as he chewed it his face changed from white to red. He ran out and came back to the class afer awhile with his hands full of candy. He offered me some but I told him I did not need it. But the little he ate made a different in his illness that he demanded for more and now he goes periodically to african market to purchase bitter kola. In effect the candy mixed with bitter kola did not have any adverse effect on him but that does not mean it is a normal thing to do. In our culture we eat bitter kola with alligator pepper. For those of you who are seeking for health blogs that work please be my guest go to www.naturalmedicinescure.com i hope to make a separate page soon that would contain only blogs.

      Garcinia kola (bitter kola, a name sometimes also used for G. afzelii) is a species of flowering plant in the Clusiaceae or Guttiferae family. It is found in Benin, Cameroon, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Ivory Coast, Gabon, Ghana, Liberia, Nigeria, Senegal and Sierra Leone. Its natural habitat is subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests.

      Traditionally used to treat illness by African medicinemen, trials on the plant have shown promising signs it may benefit ebola victims by slowing down multiplication of the virus, giving the victim's body more time to develop a proper autoimmune response. The active compound responsible for its curative properties is a dimeric flavonoid, much like those found in orange and lemon rinds, and yields to modification, so even if this particular plant cannot cure ebola on its own, it provides the foundation from which scientists can discover a cure. Studies, if successful, could spill over to other types of antiviral treatment.

      Its medicinal uses include purgative, antiparasitic and antimicrobial properties. The seeds are used in the treatment of bronchitis and throat infections. They are also used to prevent and relieve colic, cure head or chest colds and relieve cough. Also, the plant is used for the treatment of liver disorders and as a chewing stick.

      The constituents include biflavonoids, xanthones and benzophenones. The antimicrobial properties of this plant are attributed to the benzophenone, flavanones. This plant has shown both anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial and antiviral properties. In addition, the plant possesses antidiabetic, and antihepatotoxic activities.

      It is safe but reduce the quantity because some women develop high BP during pregnancy. I would advice that you bit to get the bitter taste which would quench the vomiting aspect. However this occurs at early stage of pregnancy which means you will soon be over it.

      Lafalyse, you are so correct. I got introduced to bitter cla on the grounds of constipation. I had a five days constipatin which was beginning to get me worried,after eating a nut i began to fart and three hours later i had to empty part of my bowels.

      As bitter as it was i had to ask for more for the sake of my health.

      I try chewing at east 3 per week now.

      I am beginning to get hooked.

      Thanks to the CEO of Roadmarks who introduced me to it.

      my God! i am a 24yr old cameroonian living in the U.S. i had been suffering from constipation for 15yrs. so 4months ago while on a road trip to cameroon, i bought a handful of bittercola just for the fun of it. i have to say i actualy like the bitter taste. anyways... that night i forgot to take my regular laxative(which i used totake every night!). lo and behold! the next morning i had the biggest number 2 in the past 15yrs. i continued taking bittercola for the rest of my two week trip in cameroon and i had frequent bowel movements. i felt so stupid for spending almost all my life wasting money on laxatives. needless to say that i bought a big bag t take with me back. when i got here i stopped eating it for two weeks but still went to toilet morning and night. I even lost weight because of loss of apetitite. im sorry but i am so excited, and i wana encourage whoever is out there to eat bitter cola. it is a life safer. now to think it can be anti viral as well??? where am i? in heaven?? it is true that God gave us everything already, we just need to open our eyes and go natural. THANKS BITTER COLA!

      Bitter kola is a natural substance. Anyone can eat it. Children may not like it because of its bitter taste but it is not harmful to children rather it will help them combat stomach problems.

      I am sure there are not much research of bitter cola powers. It appears majority are just undocumented and proofs unsubstantiated

      Preliminary studies at student project level demonstrated that Bitter Kola increases blood pressure but that does not mean that it actually does that in normal consumption rate. More studies as per weight/dose need to be done before confirmation.

      However for the new born Babies bitter kola would definitely serve as an antiBiotic and not as such have harmful effect.

      My favorite website is www.naturalmedicinescure.com I have been helped onces. If I can remember I only paid the $20 consultation fee and got all information that helped me.

      Traditional reasoning based on the local treatment shows that Antritis is caused by constriction o blood vessels and irregular circulation of blood. Although there is evidence of increase in blood pressure when you eat the bitter kola but antritis is more of local then overall body illness. You might need to browse the health website I gave here and check out the blog for related topics and I bet you will fine some tangible information. Good luck

      Bitter Kola is one of those gifts of nature that researchers had not yet taken enough time to explore its importance. It might be probably the fact that it is commonly consumed. However for nowe there is no identified quantity that can detox anyone b ut bear in mind that every medication is almost based on body weight. Eat the bitter kola normally and it will naturally take its course in helping you stay out of bacterial troubles.
