EYE VISION

Palm wine is a good source of Vitamins C and B which are very good for the eye. While vitamin C helps in building the connective tissues of the body and the blood vessels of the eye preventing related eye problems like cataracts, macular degeneration etc., Vitamin B1 and B12 help in solving vascular related issues that concern the retina which could result in chronic inflammation and more.  Generally, vitamins help in keeping the eye healthy and reduce the chances of getting eye problems as much as possible.

HAIR AND SKIN HEALTH

It also helps in the promoting of new body cells by removing the dead cells in the body and replacing it, thereby giving the skin a soft, smooth and better appearance.

INCREASES BREAST MILK

Palm wine has long served as the main beverage for lactating mothers in many African countries like Nigeria, Cameroon, etc., where it is mostly cultivated and can be easily accessed. It has been locally proven to help mothers whose breast milk is low by increasing the flow for adequate breastfeeding.

FIGHTS CANCER

Food rich in antioxidant properties is known to help in reducing cancer risk, as they help prevent oxidation processes in the body which could cause some chemical reactions in the body thereby leading to damages of vital organs and cells, ulcer, inflammation etc. Palm wine is a good source of antioxidants which help prevent the free radicals from damaging the cells in the body and fight cancer.

 IT CAN BUILD THE BODY’S IMMUNITY.

This is because it contains antioxidant properties (vitamin B2), which can support the body’s natural disease fighting capacity, by helping to slow down the oxidation process in the body, thereby reducing the risk of falling sick. This benefit however can only be gotten if one takes it in moderation.
