Kola Nut (Cola Nut) for Fatigue, Depression, Migraine Headache, Dysentery, Diarrhea, Weight Loss and Sex Drive – African Remedies
Kola Nut is said to help treat fatigue, depression, migraine headache, dysentery, diarrhea, weight loss and sex drive.
Kola Nut (Cola Nut, Cola Acuminata) is a fruit of a large tree native to the tropics of West Africa. Kola nut contains caffeine and has been used for its stimulating, aphrodisiac and healing qualities in African remedies.
Kola nut is essentially a caffeine-containing stimulant. The Cola acuminata fruits contain about 2% catechine-coffeine. Its properties are quite similar to that of caffeine.
Kola nut has short-term effects to relieve fatigue, depression, chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), melancholy, exhaustion, dysentery, atonic diarrhea, weight loss, and migraine headaches.
Kola nut is regarded as a traditional aphrodisiac with ability to increase sexual desires, and is used in African herbal remedies for treating ED (Erectile dysfunction).
How does kola nut work? Because kola nut contains caffeine, and caffeine works by stimulating the central nervous system, heart, and muscles. That may explain why kola nut has short-term effects to relieve fatigue, depression, headaches, and increase sexual desires.
Combined with ephedra, kola nut is said to have modest effects of weight loss in overweight and obese people. But ephedra is banned in the US due to safety concerns.
Kola nut can be consumed in foods and beverages, or used as a flavoring ingredient.
Please note, kola nut has the same side effects of caffeine. Large amounts or long-term use may cause insomnia, nervousness, restlessness, stomach irritation, nausea and vomiting, increased heart rate, headache, anxiety, and irregular heartbeats.
