Enjoy the Natural Coolness of "Bael" this Summer.

in #naturalmedicine3 years ago

Its Summer time in India, and last few day the scorching heat has started to take toll. The temperature is rising and it's getting unbearable going out in day. People started to avoid spicy food and mostly relies on Cucumber, Juices and Fruits. People started to drink more soft drinks and water to quench their thirst. And to be safe from extreme heat waves every Indian household would be looking for "AEGLE MARMELOS" Juice.

In India we call it BAEL FRUIT.

Bael or Aegle marmelos is a spiritual, religious and medicinal plant, native of India and Bangaladesh and spread throughout South East Asia. The fruit takes about 10 to 11 months to ripen. It is a sweet, aromatic and astringent in nature. It has many benefits and uses such as to cure tuberculosis, hepatitis, dysentery, constipation, peptic ulcer, piles and many more, useful in worm infestation and stomach related problems.

The fruit which have a hard outer layer and pulpy from Inside is considered as a Medicinal fruit and a boon for all summer drinks. To know more of the Fruit, visit the below link, which I shared last year, introducing this fruit first time to many on Steem.

More importantly, this fruit is also offered to Lord Shiva and have special mention in Shiva Mahapuran". The trees uses to be big and have lot of spikes, luckily I have a smaller trees in my neighbourhood.

The raw fruits on tree uses to be Green however on rippening the outer layer turned to yellow, which means it is ready to be consumed. Many eat the pulpy stuff directly or many like to have it's juices made. Drinking or consuming Bael has many advantages it helps our body in many ways:

  • The fruit helps in blood purification and blood circulation.
  • The fruits keeps the stomach in good condition and avoid any chances of constipation, or diarrohea.
  • It further helps to keep your body cool during heat waves. And energise you instantly.
  • It helps in Controlling Diabetes and Body Cholestrol level.
  • It is considered to be boon for would be mother as it help in increasesing the breast milk.
  • This is also a good way to get rid of all Kidney ailments
  • It also helps in cleaning g Intentional worms.

BAEL Juice preparation is also very easy. A normal size Bael can get us 2 glass of juice. And we need following:

  • A Bael Fruit.
  • 2 Glass of water.
  • Sugar / Jaggery (as per sweetness)
  • Chinnamon powder (not mandatory)

So break open the fruit, and take out the pulp using a spoon or a knife carefully. Put the pulp into a Mixer and add water/sugar/chinnamon and blend it perfectly. Pour them into a glass and have it straight away. The pulpy part is already sweet,however on adding water to it , it might call for added sugar or jaggery. So use them as per your taste.

This big glass of Bael Juice is enough to protect you from all kind of summer woes. Have it , Drink it and Go out to feel the heat😉

Stay Calm....

Keep Steeming...Steem On !!!

Sounds like a great fruit! Delicious and healthy. The fruits I am picking right now here at my home in California are loquats and grapefruits. The grapefruits are great for making juice too!

We have loads of Bael fruit here in Thailand too and I NEVER EVER TOUCH OR DRINK IT. Why? They serve it in the temples here to kill the sex drive of monks. Natural herbal castration, basically. Truly. And me? Well, this sensual Scorpio woman happens to rather enjoy her healthy sex drive and prefers to keep it naturally ... um... healthy. Haha.... Nice post, but you might want to reconsider drinking bael on a regular basis, unless you plan to be a monk.

🤔🙄😏🥺Frankly speaking that is something very new and I believe many would not be aware of this logic. Infact during summer you will find many cart full of Bael vendors across the roads in India serving these juices . Even I use to have them occassionally during summer and never ever felt low on my natural urges....though sometimes I get more😶....and I never want to be a monk atleast till I am physically fit and active😉

There are actually many side effects of over-consumption of Bael.

"Now that you have understood the many benefits of Bael juice, it’s time to get down to its side effects. Over-consuming this fruit juice can lead to certain disorders like:

Lowered Blood Sugar Levels
Stomach Upset
Throat Burn
Interaction with certain medicines
Vomiting
In worst cases, it may cause liver damage and liver failure.
Bael juice in pregnancy is known to interfere with certain medications and hence is not recommended."

Just to add some balance.

Maybe Indian men have SUCH strong libidos that they don't notice its effects?? haha... entirely possible. :) It's certainly served in Thai temples to calm the monks and keep them 'cool'. ;)

Strange....🥺 Over consumption leads to stomach upset that's true.....but surely we are not aware of these side effects....may be "over-consumption" is what causing all the side effects...in any how anything in limited consumption is not so bad......that what I saw since I knew about it....infact the moment you shared about monk story I started to research on internet.to find some story

Bael fruit extract certainly reduces sperm density, motility and viability. There are several clinical studies looking at is as a possible natural male contraceptive. Here's at least one of those: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3556045/

Interestingly I see some Indian sites claim it as an aphrodisiac. Meanwhile, here in Thailand, " this bael fruit drink can be defined as a drink for monks because it is believed to help focusing concentration and meditation." Go figure.

See i told you...we have totally different take on this fruit. But now i knew some more interesting facts...the monk drink......like the "old monk"😉

The fruit looks a little like a pear. But I'm going to imagine that is beer because I like beer and a beer tree would be awesome!

Fascinating! I loved reading this and learned so much. Although we do get some exotic fruit imported to Canada I have never seen the Bael fruit. I would love to try it!

I love the colour. It looks absolutely delicious. Like the kind of smoothie that makes you feel good. I'll have to see if we get this fruit in supermarkets here.
