Akpi Seeds Benefits
Consuming akpi seeds may bring regularity and healing to digestion (laxative benefits) while stimulating appetite and combating anemia in the weak or sick. Most prized are Akpi’s seeds’ effects on sexual health (especially female sexual health and menopause) and even cosmetic appearance: high in phytoestrogens (which mimic estrogen in the body), eating plenty of djansang is said to bring roundness and voluptuousness to the curves of the female figure, including hips, buttocks, and breasts.
For both men and women, akpi seeds have aphrodisiac qualities and can increase desire, arousal, and stimulation.
Enjoy this abundantly healthful traditional culinary and healing spice from Africa, rich in health properties, flavor, and healing history. There are tons of benefits for digestion, fevers, infection, pain, women’s health, fertility, cosmetic appearance, sexual energy, and wonderful authentic flavor for cooking preparations such as meat, seafood, and sauces (especially peanut sauce).
Akpi Seeds Are Used as Food
The seeds are painstakingly harvested from the fruits of enormous and towering African trees belonging to the genus Ricinodendron, trees found and used as food and medicine all over the continent. With a chickpea-like appearance, these seeds are first dried and then ground into an easy-to-use powder for either culinary or health purposes (whether for making a tea, liniment, or incorporating into a lotion for topical use). According to folk tradition, the leaves, bark, and root of the djansang tree have healing properties.
