The Natural Wonder of Bael Fruit
Also known as the ‘wood apple’, the bael fruit is found all over South Asia, from India to Vietnam. Its use goes back thousands of years – particularly in India, where the tree’s leaves were used in offerings to the Lord Shiva. As a result, bael fruit trees are often found around Hindu Temples, where their leaves can easily be harvested for offerings.
Bael fruit is widely grown in Thailand as well. The fruit that it produces is relatively hard and woody, but there’s sweet flesh at the centre of the fruit which can be eaten directly. It can also be dried or even powdered and mixed with beverages and sweets to create a healthy indulgence.
Bael fruit is extremely healthy, and it contains significant amounts of the following:
- Vitamin C
But it also possesses medicinal qualities that have been embraced by Ayurveda traditions for millennia. Here are some of the potential benefits of bael fruit:
- Assists in prevention of some cardiovascular problems
- Reduces the risk of stroke
- Helps in treatment of gastric ulcers
- Controls cholesterol
- Offers anti-inflammatory properties
- Reduces anti-histamine reactions
- Eases stomach pain
- Quenches thirst and relieves fatigue from heat
And there are many more potential benefits to be derived from consuming bael fruit. It’s truly one of nature’s wonders.
