Health Benefits of Figs
If you’re seeking answers for brain and gut health, look no more than the fig. It is the ultimate tool for balancing these two intertwined aspects of well-being. Figs have unique phytochemicals that are bonded to minerals such as bioavailable potassium and sodium that specifically nourish and build neurotransmitters while also supporting neurons and synapses in the brain. It’s a powerful fruit for preventing Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, dementia, and other neurological diseases, including ALS. (Health Benefits of Figs)
On the enteral facet, figs are, like dates, one among the foremost effective bowel-cleansing foods on the world. The skins feed good gut bacteria and are also antiseptic, killing unproductive gut bacteria, parasites, mold, and toxic heavy metals, while the seeds get into intestinal crevices and destroy disease-causing bacteria, viruses, and fungus that hide in those pockets. The fruit’s pulp and fiber massage the intestinal lining and build up the digestive immune system to help you stop struggling with stomach pain and bloating. Figs are effective in alleviating all types of gut problems, including diverticulitis appendix inflammation, constipation, inflamed colon, and complications from C. difficile.
