Bitter Kola Side Effects: Does Bitter Kola Nut Help With Diabetes?: Types Of Diabetes (Paperback)
Did you know that Coca-Cola got its name from a common African tree?
Bitter kola, also known as bitter cola or Garcinia Kola, is a plant found in Central and Western Africa that has long been valued for its medicinal properties.
Although traditional African medicine uses all parts of the Bitter Kola plant, the seeds are most commonly eaten.
Bitter kola seeds have a sharp, bitter flavor that eases into a slight sweetness as you chew, and they're typically eaten raw.
Early studies suggest that a chemical called kolaviron, which is found in bitter kola, may protect against hypoglycemia in people with type 2 diabetes.
