Health Benefits of Tiger Nuts – A Great Healthy Snack Food

Tiger Nuts come from California, Europe, Northern African, and even Florida and have been around for over 4,000 years… and are full of health benefits. With a flavor and texture that reminds you of crunchy carmel/coconut, this great tasting old, yet newly discovered nut is wonderful!

Tiger Nuts are full of great protein, carbs, plus have all the Vitamin E that you need… plus Vitamin C and B’s too.

Tiger Nuts contain lots of great minerals such as: iron, copper, zinc, sodium, phosphorus, potassium, magnesium, and lots of calcium for strong bones and healthy tissues.

Tiger Nuts are a great anti-inflammatory agent working well for inflammatory based diseases such as arthritis and inflammation of the GI tract… and especially works well for colitis. Tiger Nuts get rid of gas and soothes the GI tract with a astringent action.

Tiger Nuts help with ulcers of the gums, and other mouth inflammation diseases… plus Tiger Nuts helps with stress by helping the body to stay centered and balanced.

Tiger Nuts are diuretic helping to get rid of excess fluid, and sooth away bladder and prostate inflammation too. And Tiger Nuts are great for those suffering from constipation, they contain lots of great fiber… and Tiger Nuts can also help you lose weight.

  5. Rabakaya says:

    Is there any truth in associating of consumption of tiger nuts with increase libido?

    • paulhaider says:

      Tiger nuts do have anti-inflammatory abilities that sooth the prostate and can also increase needed minerals that might help with libido.

      But just about every food and herb in the world has been said to be a aphrodisiac at one time or another… there are some good aphrodisiacs but
      I would not consider Tiger Nuts be in that list.

      But Suma Root, Tribulus Terrestris, Tongkat Ali, and a few more herbs will help with libido in a great way.

      Dear Paul George,

      Tigernuts have lots of fiber that helps in weight loss… but has lots of oils too… you won’t lose any more weight than eating other types of nuts.

      Enjoy

    • paulhaider says:

      Hi-Yerima – I would think so but I have not done that my self – give it a try.

      And for the nutrition I would google “Nutrition of Tiger Nut Milk”

      I don’t get into all the details of all the nutrition – this is a place for people to start and then do their own research.

    Is the nut good for pregnant ladies?. Can the nut increase the sperms of a man?

  12. Kennedy says:

    Does the nut cure mouth odour?

    • paulhaider says:

      At this time I have not heard that Tiger Nuts can cure mouth odour or increase sperm count.

      And I recommend with all herbs and foods to eat simply when pregnant and eat nutritious foods.

  13. Mo' says:

    I had a lot of dried tiger nut yesterday. It’s a regular crop here in Nigeria as it is grown in some parts. I think i had about a hundred without havimg eaten anything for almost 24hrs. About an hour or so after, I had a very uncomfortable, upset tummy and slight dizziness. Is there such a thing like eating too much tiger nuts? I think this was my case here.

    • paulhaider says:

      Hi-Mo,

      I get that same feeling if I eat too much of anything – All things in moderation, that is the key.

    pls can tiger nut increase breast size and how do u do it

  16. Melissa says:

    I just purchased tigernuts and have not eaten them yet because of the high fiber content I am wondering if they need to be soaked first before ingesting (so that the “dry” fiber isn’t monopolizing the hydration within the body)

    • paulhaider says:

      Hi-Melissa,

      I just eat the like other nuts… no reason to soak them.

      But as with all nuts only eat 10 to 20 per day.

      All nuts contain lots of fats… all things in moderation.

      Also Fiber is great for the body… and for creating an environment for the growth of probiotic bacteria (Good Bacteria) thus boosting up our immune system.
