Durian Fruit - Super-Natural Nutrition

Antioxidants, Folate, Sulphur Compounds & Vitamins C & B

Durian contains high levels of antioxidants like Anthocyanins, Carotenoids, Polyphenols Bioflavonoids and essential vitamins like Vitamin C, but something that makes Durian unique is its Sulphur-containing compounds, like Thioacetals, Thioesters and Thiolanes, as well as trace amounts of alcohol. These compounds are also found in garlic, and they have the ability to protect tissues and support metabolic pathways. It also contains volatile sulphur compounds, esters and antimicrobials have also been identified. The Durian Fruit is a solid food source of Folate and B Vitamins. A study showed that Durian is a rich natural source of absorbable Folate and B vitamins which again make it unique.

It certainly deserves its title of "King of Fruits". These nutrients I just mentioned are important for metabolic health, maintaining nerve and muscle function, and supporting higher energy levels. Folate in particular has an essential role in metabolic pathways involving biosynthesis and remethylation of homocysteine to methionine. It helps prevent not only neural tube defects in new-borns, but also increased levels of homocysteine that are associated with development of cardiovascular issues and cognitive problems. Durian’s high amount of Thiamine is also beneficial for glucose metabolism and maintaining health of connective tissues.

Providing Natural Good Health

Studies have shown that Durian has anti-proliferative and even probiotics effects. It seems to be capable of promoting cardiovascular health, fighting bad cholesterol and supporting arterial health. The fruit is nourishing as a cognitive, brain food as well. Durian or the Powdered Fruit as presented here is an ideal choice for those who are sensitive to the effects of consuming sugar and carbs. It has a lower glycemic index score due to its protein, fibre and fat content. Although this Fruit remains un-studied and unproven it has traditionally been used as a fertility-enhancing agent.

Also Durian has been found to exhibit positive effects against various components of metabolic syndrome and polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). Perhaps the reason for this is due to its anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, anti-obesity, anti-cholesterol and antihypoglycaemic properties. Some studies have uncovered evidence that Durian Leaf and Roots contain Febrifuge and anti-malarial properties, as well as many other nutrients that can support the immune system in fighting off viruses and infections. Research is on-going regarding its unique microbial composition and how it may be used for production of novel proteins and/or enzymes in the future.

Durian for Peace & Happiness

Durian's yummy taste is not the only reason for feeling good when eating it, whether as fruit, a dessert or amazing smoothie. But this truly decadent fruit actually has happiness chemicals present in it to make you feel good. Durian contains the amino acid tryptophan which gets converted to serotonin, a neurotransmitter that induces feelings of happiness and relaxation. So your mood naturally improves after eating Durian. Is Durian a fruit for bedtime? Well, Durian helps to regulate sleep meaning that the "King of Fruits" can make you sleep better. Tryptophan (an essential amino acid) in durian is converted to melatonin, a hormone that controls your sleep cycle.

The higher your melatonin levels, the easier it is to fall asleep. If you need good natural, restful sleep, try swapping your usual bedtime snack for something with Durian Powder in it like a smoothie, water or even on its own. Oh! By the way talking of feeling good, Durian is known to be a libido-boosting food in South East Asia. In fact, there's a well-known traditional Indonesian saying: "When the Durians fall, the sarong goes up". The Malaysian government is looking to do a comprehensive study on the aphrodisiac value of Durians. Even if Durian doesn't improve your libido significantly, it contains many vitamins and minerals that are great for your overall well-being.

Durian - Food for Thought

“The stories surrounding eating durians remind us that literature should incorporate low culture, bringing it closer to lived reality. - Unknown

These legends come not from the pens of the elite, but are assembled from the words of the masses, both written and spoken, passed from one person to another—the only way to create a text this deep and compelling.”
- Wong Yoon Wah, Durians Are Not the Only Fruit.

"Durian and Brazil Nut. An odd pair? Yes, but they have this in common, that you have to be careful they don't drop on your head."
- Alan Davidson.

"Ah Durian, travel days revisited... a booming fruit of wonderlust. A meal for the day a King for a lifetime. I literally did meal replacement with this fruit"
- Tom Stavely.

“It smelled like you'd buried somebody holding a big wheel of Stilton in his arms, then dug him up a few weeks later.”
Anthony Bourdain.

“Durian contains high levels of tryptophan"
 - David Wolfe - Eating for Beauty.

“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness.”
- Galatians 5:22.

The Legends of Durian Fruit.

What's the Story Behind It? According to Philippine legend, the durian wasn't always so ugly and smelly. It's said that the spiked fruit originated in Calinan, Mindanao, back when its islands were still ruled by kings. One such king was called Barom-Mai, and he ruled with an iron fist.

Believed to have first been grown in Borneo, the durian is native to Malaysia and Indonesia, and is also grown in Thailand and the Philippines. In these countries, as well as in Singapore, and most recently China, it is much beloved. Malaysians proudly refer to it as “raja segala buah” or the king of all fruits. 

Durian Fruit Powder… Closing Thoughts

The Durian is a tropical fruit that has been cultivated for centuries in Southeast Asia. Durian is so special that the naturalist Alfred Russel Wallace once wrote about durian: “To eat durian is a new sensation worth a voyage to the East to experience.” Due to Durian's strong sulphur-like odour, almost everyone from Western countries first experiencing this smell is disgusted by it, but in Southeast Asia and major parts of China, Durian is considered “The king of Fruits”. Despite possessing a very strong odour, it is known to have a fantastic effect on the taste buds. Unique in taste, this fruit is jam-packed with assorted nutrients and hence, offers benefits that surely are noteworthy. Durian's high appreciation is mainly attributable to the creamy sweet taste of Durian pulp, which is multiply used in beverages and desserts. Durian's aril is usually eaten fresh or freeze-dried, but can also be processed and used for jam, candies or Durian cake. Ancient Purity supplies pure and 100% natural Durian Powder with all the nutritional goodness still present in it. 

Growing on trees in moist, tropical climates throughout Southeast Asia, Durians have a limited season and an extremely short shelf life. The trees themselves, sometimes as tall as 130 feet, are pollinated by bats. Three to four months later, the fruit, each weighing several pounds, plummets down, already reeking with its characteristic aroma. Because of the short duration of tasty ripeness, durians are expensive, and purchasing one is a solemn, smelly ritual: only by odour can one determine whether a Durian is truly ripe. Not surprisingly for so valued a fruit, all parts of the Durian tree are used in folk medicine. The flesh itself is regarded as an aphrodisiac. Today, even withonline resources devoted to Durians and improved shipping around the world, the fruit's unexpurgated flavour and smell still remain a unique experience of the East! Now it’s time for you to experience it!
