Nam-wah banana tree

Not just for food or sacred events, the ‘the giving tree of Thailand’ has many amazing curative qualities that people may not know:

Unripe fruit: full of tannin acid; eating half ripe fruit 30 minutes before meals can help cure stomach wounds. Or more effectively, make thin slices and dry in the sun for 2 days then grind into flour and mix 1-2 tablespoons with water and drink 30 minutes before meals and before bed.

Ripe fruit: full of magnesium, potassium and vitamins (B, C, and A) which boost the immune system and prevent high blood pressure.

Very ripe fruit: helps to cure cracked heels, feet and hands. Take very ripe fruit and poke small holes at the tip and squeeze out juice. You can apply this to cracked, dry areas and then wash out.

Banana blossom: full of iron. Eating the blossom will help with anemia.

Water from the trunk of the tree: will also help to cure stomach wounds. Drink 1 tablespoonful 30 minutes before a meal.
