Every portion of the coconut tree, is useful to us. But did you know that coconut sprouts have health benefits?
Coconut sprouts, also known as Kobbari Puvvu in Telugu and Fopra in Bengali, are also known as coconut blossom or nariyal ka phool. Coconut sprouts, also known as coconut pearls, coconut embryos, or coconut apples, have a spongy texture and a sweet flavour. They are found inside matured coconut fruits of varying sizes.
Sprouted coconuts have a carbohydrate content of around 66%, including 64% soluble sugars. Coconut sprouts are high in dietary fibre and minerals like calcium, potassium, magnesium, manganese, and phosphorus.
Cure Bleeding Disorders
When suffering from bleeding issues such as nasal bleeding or heavy periods, eating coconut sprouts can help. Coconut’s hormone balancing properties are well recognised, since the fatty acids in it aid in the production, processing, and elimination of progesterone and oestrogen, ensuring that hormonal balance is maintained. It is also one of the top foods to eat to relieve nose bleeds, along with bananas, mangoes, papayas, dates, kiwis, and figs.
Treats Diabetes And Urinary Tract Disorders
People with urinary tract problems usually need to eat foods that can balance the acidic and alkaline elements in their bodies. Coconut sprouts are rich in nutrients that can help with this. Aside from that, eating them boosts insulin secretion and helps lessen diabetes symptoms.
Treats Diarrhoea, Dysentery
What could be a greater supplement to your summer diet than coconut, which offers a plethora of cooling properties? When you have gut troubles like diarrhoea or dysentery with bleeding caused by too much heat, you can take some coconut sprouts in addition to a cool coconut water drink.
Treats White Discharge/ Leucorrhoea
A white discharge (leucorrhoea) in women can be normal, but it can also be a sign of an underlying disease, such as an infection.
Coconut sprouts, like anything else, should be consumed in moderation otherwise constipation may occur. So consume this in moderation to reap the advantages of this intriguing component of the coconut tree and enjoy its flavour this summer.
