The benefits of PETAI

Petai contain tryptophan, a type of protein that the body converts into serotonin, known to make you relax, improve your mood and generally make you feel happier.
PMS (premenstrual syndrome):
Forget the pills - eat petai. The vitamin B6 it contains regulates blood glucose levels, which can affect your mood.
High in iron, petai can stimulate the production of hemoglobin in the blood and so helps in cases of anemia.
Blood Pressure:
This unique tropical fruit is extremely high in potassium yet low in salt, making it the perfect to beat blood pressure.
Brain Power:
Research has shown that the potassium-packed fruit can assist brain alertness
High in fiber, including petai in the diet can help restore normal bowel action, helping to overcome the problem without resorting to laxatives.
One of the quickest ways of curing a hangover is to make a petai milk shake, sweetened with honey. The petai calms the stomach and, with the help of the honey, builds up depleted blood sugar levels, while the milk soothes and rehydrates your system.
Petai has a natural antacid effect in the body, so if you suffer from heartburn, try eating petai for soothing relief.
Morning Sickness:
Snacking on petai between meals helps to keep blood sugar levels up and avoid morning sickness.
Mosquito bites:
Before reaching for the insect bite cream, try rubbing the affected area with the inside of the petai skin. Many people find it amazingly successful at reducing swelling and irritation.
Petai is high in B vitamins that help calm the nervous system.
Petai is used as the dietary food against intestinal disorders because of its soft texture and smoothness. It is the only raw fruit that can be eaten without distress in over-chronicler cases. It also neutralizes over-acidity and reduces irritation by coating the lining of the stomach.
Temperature control :
Many other cultures see petai as a "cooling" fruit that can lower both the physical and emotional temperature of expectant mothers.
Petai can also help people trying to give up smoking. The B6, B12 they contain, as well as the potassium and magnesium found in them, help the body recover from the effects of nicotine withdrawal.
Potassium is a vital mineral, which helps normalize the heartbeat, sends oxygen to the brain and regulates your body's water balance. When we are stressed, our metabolic rate rises, thereby reducing our potassium levels. These can be rebalanced with the help of a high-potassium petai snack.

Together with another mineral called phosphate, it provides the main strength in bones but alsohelps to power muscles.
Getting enough calcium in your diet during childhood is crucial for strong bones.

Broccoli for Prostate Cancer

Close-up look at the tiny green tips on a Broccoli head, look like hundreds of cancer cells.
Scientists know this disease-busting vegetable can play a crucial role in preventing cancer.
A team of researchers at the US National Cancer Institute found just a weekly serving of Broccoli was enough to reduce the risk of prostate cancer by 45 per cent.

Banana makes you smile

Cheer yourself up and put a smile on your face by eating banana.

The popular fruit contains a protein called tryptophan. Once it has been digested, tryotophan then gets converted in a chemical neurotransmitter called serotonin.
This is one of the most important mood-regulating chemicals in the brain and most anti-depressant drugs work by adjusting levels of serotonin production.
Higher levels are associated with moods.

Mushroom for your Ears

Slice a mushroom in half and it resembles the shape of human ear.

Adding mushroom to your cooking could actually improve your hearing.
That's because mushrooms are one of the few foods in our diet that contain vitamin D.
This particular vitamin is important for healthy bones, even the tiny ones in the ear that transmit sound to the brain.

Demam, Denggi dan A H1N1

Kebelakangan ni, Demam sudah menjadi pembunuh jika tidak di beri perhatian awal. Demam juga telah membuat klinik-klinik, doktor, farmasi dan pembuat2 ubat melariskan perniagaan mereka. Ada beberapa petua yang saya temui mungkin boleh menyembuh demam-demam yang di katakan serius ini. Saya mengesyorkan petua-petua yang akan saya tuliskan ini kerana perbelanjaannya tidak mahal dan jika di-amalkan kalau tidak sembuh pun tidak memudaratkan malah ada antaranya yang enak untuk di nikmati.

Baru-baru ini saya terbaca email yang di-sebarkan bahawa seorang Ustaz telah mengesyorkan supaya memakan atau meminum jus epal hijau sebanyak 6 biji sehari, 3 hari berturut-turut.

Petua ini di percayai dapat menyembuhkan Demam selsema A H1N1. Kalau tidak menyembuhkan H1N1 pun kita tahu epal hijau memang baik untuk kesihatan kita.

Daun betik, ditumbuk atau blend hingga hancur kemudian di perah dalam tapisan halus (seperti kain cotton) supaya dapat mengambil airnya sahaja.
Minum air dari daun betik ini satu sudu besar dua kali sehari sehingga sembuh dari demam panas.
Petua ini juga di percayai boleh menyembuhkan demam denggi.

Seperti yang kita tahu, datuk nenek kita dulu selalu mengesyorkan meminum air kelapa muda untuk melegakan demam yang serius seperti demam campak dan cacar air.
Seorang professor dari universiti Malaya yang membuat kajian tentang tentang penyembuhan secara sistem ekologi telah mengesyorkan meminum air kelapa untuk mengelak dari jangkitan H1N1. Untuk mengtahui lebih lanjut layari blog ini.
