Borneo Island

  • Durian from inside. The taste is sweet and texture creamy. The fruit is big in itself, but little you can get from inside, as the seeds are big and peel thick. The smell is not unpleasant as people say. Some people are too sensitive to that smell...many people are surprised that I like the fruit. Durian is the king of the fruits, rich in vitamins and minerals.

  • Nutrition and Health Benefits of Eating Durian
    Durian is a strong blood cleanser and a powerful aphrodisiac.
    The roots and leaves of durian are used for preparing traditional medicines for curing fevers and jaundice.
    The decoction prepared from leaves and fruits, is helpful for treating swellings and skin diseases.
    The rind of durian is burned and the ash is consumed by women after childbirth.
    Due to the high levels of amino acid tryptophan, durian is known to alleviate anxiety, depression and insomnia.
    By raising levels of serotonin in the brain, it helps in creating feeling of happiness.
    It is highly useful in lowering cholesterol.
    It is a good muscle builder, due to its high content of soft protein.
    Durian is a good source of vitamin C that helps in developing resistance against infectious agents and scavenges harmful free radicals.
    It contains simple sugars like fructose and sucrose and some simple fats that replenish energy and revitalize the body instantly. Hence, durian is highly effective as a supplement food for underweight children.
    Apart from iron, lack of folate can also lead to a type of anemia called pernicious anemia. Durian, being a good source of folate, helps in producing normal red blood cells (RBC).
    Durian aids in regulating blood sugar level, due to its rich manganese content.
    By promoting a normal appetite, durian helps in producing hydrochloric acid in the stomach, thereby assisting in proper digestion of food.
    Packed with nutrients, durian helps in increasing energy, endurance, mental clarity and cellular health.
    It enhances libido, thereby revitalizing the desire for sexual intimacy.

Then Jesus beholding him loved him, and said unto him, One thing thou lackest: go thy way, sell whatsoever thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come take up the cross, and follow me. Mark 10:21

The contrast between rich and poor peope is very high in Malaysia.
