Tiger nuts have many benefits but we have chosen 5 important ones

Cures Erectile Dysfunction

One of the major benefits of tiger nuts is acting indirectly as a palliative of improving the problem of erectile dysfunction. Tiger nuts when blended with dates and coconuts with little water produce a drink that helps to sustain erection. This drink is becoming popular in Nigeria.

Rich Non-meat Protein source

Tiger nuts are one of the richest non-meat protein sources in the world. For vegetarians, tiger nuts is the best option for getting proteins which plays a major role in building bones, muscles, cartilage, skin and blood.

Controls Diabetes

Tiger nuts are very rich in fibers around 33% which is considerable. The insoluble dietary fiber has been discovered to be higher than that of apples, carrots, rice bran, oats, cabbage etc. which are popular sources. The high insoluble dietary fiber regulates the blood sugar levels and helps the diabetic patient remain healthy.

So it is advisable that when you pass that tiger nut seller, do patronize him/her because it is the ticket to help you live healthier than you expected.
