Rambutan, exotic hairy fruit from Asia that can boost your energy and give you a younger and healthy skin with its powerful antioxidant - It tastes good and Great for Your Health

RAMBUTAN, delicious hairy fruit for your Younger Skin

Rambutan, a delicious tropical fruit that grow widely in Indonesia especially in Java, Sumatra, Riau, Jambi, Bali, NTB, and Kalimantan. It is spread widely in most Southeast Asian countries like Malaysia, Philippines, Vietnam, Sri Lanka, Cambodia and Thailand.

Rambutan is also called "hairy fruit" because there is a lot of look a like hair above its rind.

I love this fruit so much because of the juicy and sweet taste with a little unique sour sometimes. It tastes like a litchi but rambutan is still bigger than litchi. Rambutan is eaten raw, or you can find it in a can. To removed the rind, just find the seam across the fruit and then pull apart the leathery skin. You can also use the knife, but I think it’s not a great choice since it’s not efficient at all .

So, What is the benefit of this delicious fruit?
Source of Energy
Rambutan fruit can increase our energy since it’s rich with carbohydrate and protein. It is rich in sugar, mostly fructose and sucrose, but less calories, only around 60 in a fruit. So, wow, it can help you boosting your energy which compatible with your diet. And also, it is rich in water content. That’s why, if you are tired, Rambutan is really a great choice for restoring your energy and removing your thirsty.
• Giving You A Strength Bones and Teeth
When you eat 100 gram rambutan, you obtain 22 mg Calsium; 0.17 mg Zinc; and 9 mg Phosphorus. That compounds work together to fortify your theeth and bones. In addition, phosphorus helps to remove waste in your kidneys and is essential for the development, repair and maintenance of tissues and body cells.
Great Iron Source
Rambutan fruit is a great iron source. You can obtain 0.35 mg iron/ 100 g fruit. Iron is really needed for the overhaul of the red blood cells. Moreover, it has a small quantities of copper which necessary for the creation of red blood cells. So, If you are anemia, try eating this fruit.
• Therapeutic Functions
Rambutan fruit has so many therapeutic functions. Consuming the fruit can help kill intestinal parasites, while helping relieve symptoms of diarrhea. In Indonesia, parts of rambutan are used in traditional medication to cure fever and sprue.
In curing fever, rambutan rind is used. Firstly, wash the dried rambutan rind (approx. 15 g). Add 3 cups of water and boil it about 15 min. After cool (room temperature), strain and drink it 3 times a day.
In curing sprue, rambutan bark is used. Wash the rambutan bark (3 knuckles) and then boil with 2 cups of water until a half water remaining. Use it as a gargle while warm.

• Anti Aging Potential
I love to search about natural resources that can give nutrition to the skin. I was really glad to find that rambutan has a great anti-aging potential. Rambutan fruit has a high level of antioxidants obtained from its beta carotene and vitamin C. A researchment paper which licenseed by Molecular Diversity Preservation International, Basel, Switzerland showed that the rambutan pulp, seeds and skin have strong antioxidants properties such as ellagic acid (EA), corilagin, and geraniin. These compounds scavenging the free radical which can protect our skin against oxidative damage. And the awesome one, these compounds possessing much greater antioxidant than the synthetic antioxidant (BHT). From another research, I found that the IC50 value to quench the DPPH free radicals of rambutan peel exctract is 0.006 mg/ml. Wow, I guess it is really promissing to make Rambutan’s exctract into a health supplement product or a skincare formulation like gel or cream to make a younger healthy skin hehe…..

So, if you visit Indonesia, don’t forget to buy this juicy healthy hairyfruit!!! It’s only cost you 10,000 Rupiahs or about 1 $ /kg (year:2012) . It tastes good and great for your skin!
