Khasiat Buah Belimbing Besi

 


Carambola or starfruit or Belimbing Besi is the fruit of Averrhoa carambola, a species of  tree native to Malaysia, Indonesia,India and Sri Lanka. The tree and its fruit are popular throughout South East Asia, the South Pacific and other parts of East Asia.

Carambola is rich in antioxidants and vitamin C, and low in sugar, sodium and acid.Carambola is a fairly complex fruit with many benefits like strawberries, but a small percent of the human population should be cautious of the fruit for health reasons.

Like the grapefruit, carambola contains oxalic acid which can be harmful to individuals suffering from kidney failure or under kidney dialysis treatment. Consumption by those with kidney failure can produce hiccups, vomiting, nausea, and mental confusion.

Oooo dasyat tuh...becareful ya you people out there..

Today a friend of mine told me that this fruit has another benefit that most of us didn't know about...It can be used as a repellent to measles or even chicken pox. How? She said, just put a few starfruits leaves in a basin or a pail or a bath water container then bathe using the water. It provides a cooling sensation. Nobody knows how it really works as a repellent to chicken pox, but we can always give it a try... wallahu a'lam..

Yang pastinya...kalau blend, campur ice cubes dan minum....mmm heaven!!
