A lot of Ghanaians are fascinated with tiger nuts for reasons best known to them.
Word on the street, however, is that the Atadwe as it is called in Twi helps to solve erectile dysfunction and most traditional healers apparently recommend this to their patients with such conditions.
We cannot confirm or deny if the tiger nut helps you to “rise up” properly as a man though, what we know, however, is that tiger nut contains Vitamin E and this helps the sperms to move actively to fertilize the eggs.
This is probably what fascinates the men and causes them to continually make a fuss about tiger nut.
Tiger Nuts go a long way in being beneficial to everyone and not just the Men.
Aside from Vitamin E, Atadwe also contains high fibre content. A diet high in fibre helps with your blood sugar control, weight loss as well as irritable bowel syndrome.
The tiger nut milk contains higher magnesium, iron, and carbohydrates than cow milk.
For those that don’t do well with milk and avoid it as much as you can, tiger nut milk has no lactose hence good for individuals who are lactose intolerant.
The fatty acid composition in tiger nuts is similar to that of olive oil.
The oleic acid (fatty acid) content helps with lowering of natural fats and oils and cholesterol making it essential for heart health.
It also reduces the risk of colon cancer and helps with constipation and flatulence too.
So, the next time you see an Atadwe seller in traffic, bear in mind that you are not only buying for your husband or boyfriend or best friend but you will also need some because of the added benefits it has.
