What is in a nut?
Aleurites moluvanna: two words that spell check seems to hate, despite knowing that it means ‘Nuez de la India’. But, you may ask, what is in a nut? There are many different terms for aleurites moluvanna; Indian walnut, candlenut, both of which are abundant in Asia.
While ‘aleurites moluvanna’ is the Nuez de la India way of maintaining a healthy body and mind, the ‘Indian walnut’ is used in cooking all over Asia. In Indonesia and Malaysia the nut is used as a staple of many sauces to be served over rice and is sometimes substituted for a macadamia nut. How fancy, especially given that macadamia nuts can only be cracked via one machine in the entire world. While Nuez de la India, as you know, can be sweet (depending on if you take the supplement or steep your Nuez de la India in hot water) typically the seeds or nuts are exceptionally bitter. That is why we why we naturally sweeten all supplement capsules (with a little touch of pomegranate) and encourage you to use honey or agave with your seed tea.
While the bitter flavored nut/seed may startle you there are so many hidden aspects of the Nuez de la India tree/nut. Due to the high oil content, the nut was used in lieu of candles in Hawaii. The light provided from a string of nuts was considered the equivalency of a candle! Nuts were strung on a row and used to measure time. If you’re taking back your mind and body from bloat and anxiety, Nuez de la India can be your own calendar; every day that you take your supplement / drink your delicious Nuez de la India seed tea is one day closer to a happier and healthier you.
Since it’s no secret that Nuez de la India has countless medicinal properties it should not be a shock that the bark, flowers and nuts have been used for medicine for centuries. The small five petaled white flower was used as a very primitive means of helping parents deal with thrush, which causes painful mouth sores in infants and small children. The sap is known for helping with chapped lips, cold sores and mild sunburn. Nuez de la India helps you from the inside out! The high oil content makes the candlenut an ideal part of any healthy diet and regime. In Hawaii, the indigenous population has been using the nut to treat various medical maladies for years!
