    We have had our first fig harvest of the year!
    The parrots love the figs as much as we do :)

    There are many nutritional benefits to consuming figs, as explained in Ayurveda.

    Figs are a great source of iron, rich in calcium (more than milk), potassium (more than bananas) and rich in dietary fibres.

    The dried fruits are high in manganese, iron, magnesium, potassium, and thiamine. These fruits contain 17 different types of amino acids.

    The Ayurvedic properties are sweet (madhura)/ astringent (kashaya) and cold (sheeta) in nature. They are great to relive constipation, piles, liver disorders, gum disease, high blood pressure and debility.

    1.       Anjeer richness is iron makes it a perfect fruit to treat Anaemia.

    2.       Taken in the morning with Pippali is helpful for Asthma.

    3.       Chewing figs strengthens teeth, the tongue and gums.

    4.       Anjeer alkalises the body blood and maintains proper ph of blood.

    5.       The richness in calcium makes them ideal for heart, bones, digestive and reproductive health.

    6.       For cold or sore throat boil dried figs, fenugreek and tulsi leaves. Reduce the water to ¼ and drink it lukewarm.

    The fig tree is considered sacred in different religions and cultures around the world.

    In Hindu philosophy the tree is sacred to different deities, the roots of one indian species represents Brahma the Creator, the leaves Shiva and the trunk Vishnu the preserver.
