Benefits of petai:

1. Depression – Contains tryptophan, a type of protein that the body converts into serotonin, known to make you relax, improve your mood and generally make you feel happier.

2. Anemia - Stimulate the production of haemoglobin in the blood and so helps in cases of anaemia.

3. Lowers blood pressure - Extremely high in potassium yet low in salt, making it perfect to beat blood pressure.

4. Brain power booster - Potassium-packed fruit can assist learning by making pupils more alert.

5. Heartburn – Has a natural antacid effect in the body.

6. Mosquito repellent - Try rubbing mosquito bites with the inside of the petai skin. Many people find it amazingly successful at reducing swelling and irritation.

7. Quit smoking - The B6, B12 they contain, as well as the potassium and magnesium found in them, help the body recover from the effects of nicotine withdrawal.

8. Strokes - According to research in The New England Journal of Medicine, eating petai as part of a regular diet can cut the risk of death by strokes by as much as 40%.

9. Warts – As natural alternatives to heal from wart, take a piece of petai and place it on the wart. Carefully hold the petai in place with a plaster or surgical tape.


About Me

In its broadest sense, science (from the Latin scientia, meaning "knowledge") refers to any systematic knowledge or practice. In its more usual restricted sense, science refers to a system of acquiring knowledge based on scientific method, as well as to the organized body of knowledge gained through such research.

Fields of science are commonly classified along two major lines: natural sciences, which study natural phenomena (including biological life), and social sciences, which study human behavior and societies. These groupings are empirical sciences, which means the knowledge must be based on observable phenomena and capable of being experimented for its validity by other researchers working under the same conditions.
