You are what you eat
In our modern or instant society, we tend to eat a lot more rubbish! Proper Food & Nutrition remains merely a concept for some of us. .. yet, I have lived rather carelessly.

I had this incredible crave for Durians and so i did some research to “justify” this expensive taste. As it turns out, Durian has a rich content of phytonutrients, antioxidant, protein, vitamins and minerals. These are particularly beneficial at the moment- organosulfur, tryptophan, Vit B6, magnesium, potassium, zinc and iron.
- Durian is extremely nutritious because it is rich in vitamin B, C and E and with high iron content. Eating durian is alleged to restore the health of ailing humans and animals.
- The fruit is an excellent source of many health benefiting B-complex groups of vitamins; a rare feature among fruits, such as niacin, riboflavin, pantothenic acid (vitamin B5), pyridoxine (vitamin B-6) and thiamin (vitamin B-1). These vitamins are essential in the sense that body requires them from external sources to replenish.
