Tamarind (Tamarindus indica) is a hardwood tree originally from Africa, though it has found its way to Pakistan, India, and other tropical countries. The edible part of the tamarind tree is found in large bean-like pods that have seeds surrounded by brown pulp and fiber. When young, the pulp is green and very tart, but as it matures, the pulp turns brown, becomes juicier, and tastes sweet and sour.

Digestive health: Tamarind has been in use for years as a treatment for digestive issues such as constipation and diarrhea. It contains dietary fiber, which can help regulate bowel movements. Tamarind also contains natural laxative properties that may help relieve digestive discomfort and improve overall gastrointestinal function.

It has also been used to treat some types of ulcers,  fever and help wounds heal faster. In addition, tamarind is endowed with polyphenols with anti-inflammatory and antioxidant benefits, such as helping prevent and reduce symptoms of type 2 diabetes, cancer, and cardiovascular diseases.  

Blood Sugar Control: Some research suggests that tamarind may help regulate blood sugar levels and improve insulin sensitivity. This can be beneficial for individuals with diabetes or those at risk of developing diabetes. Tamarind contains compounds that may inhibit certain enzymes involved in carbohydrate metabolism, which can help stabilize blood sugar levels.

This Brain Booster Tamarindo is a powerful drink to help you maintain and improve your concentration and memory-making you more relaxed and calm. Too good to be true, skeptical? Just try it for a week and judge for yourself.

The preparation process is straightforward. First, take out the outer shell of the tamarind pulp, then soak the pulp in water for about 10-20 minutes, then use your hands to separate the pulp from the seeds and mix it up with the soaking water until the water turns into a thick paste. Use a large sieve or colander to strain the juice and mix with water to dilute it. You can take the juice as is but mix in honey, molasses, or another natural sweetener if it’s too sour. 

In southern India, our culture uses all-natural tamarind paste and coconut hash to scrap clean and polish clean pots and pans stained from cooking, at times with thick oily residues. The residue of the tamarind pulp after preparation for consumption can be used to polish metal thanks to tartaric acid, we hardly use detergents. Just leaving the pot soaking in the water with tamarind paste will remove all oxides from oily residue from cooking and frying. Imagine that
