Today’s FODMAP friendly breakfast: Coconut milk yoghurt with passion fruit, a banana and starfruit which I’m trying for the first time.

Star fruit is a literal one-stop medicine shop. It’s used around the world as a home remedy for hangovers and sunburns. It works well on coughs, fever, ulcers and sore throats. It also effectively combats diabetes. The leaves of star fruit can be used to treat stomach ulcers and skin inflammations.
💫
Star fruit improves digestion and contains an antimicrobial agent which fights the microbial bacillus cereus, e.coli, salmonella typhus, etc. It also helps with eczema.
💫
With only 30 calories per fruit plus lots of fiber, star fruit, like kokum and passion fruit, is a great choice for anyone trying to lose weight. It’s also full of antioxidants and flavonoids. In addition to vitamins A, B and C, that help keep the metabolism of the body steady and strong, star fruit also has thiamine, riboflavin, and niacin in very small concentrations. It’s a good source of vitamin B9 (folic acid), which helps reduce the risk of heart disease and stroke, and it also contains vitamin C and vitamin B5.
🌟
Yay star fruit!

😍👅💦#StarFruit (#Carambola) ➕#BlueBerries - It'sa Pre #WorkOut #Snack!😍👅💦 This has become one of my #favorite fruit combos! It's almost like they were made for one another! These two fruit are often labeled as #SuperFruit, & for good reason. #StarFruit & #BlueBerries are filled with with #nutrients & #AntiOxidents
that are #essential to our bodies #health in many ways... 🌟Star Fruit contains 🔑 #vitamins & #minerals such as #Potassium, #Magnesium, & #VitaminA. They're also contain #Protein & are a good source of #DietaryFiber (containing approx. 3 grams or little over 11% of our so-called recommended "#DailyValue"). But the most prevalent vitamin/#AntiOxident that Star Fruit contains is #VitaminC & they have a whooping 57% of our "Daily Value" with each fruit! 🔵Blue Berries are a excellent source of Vitamins, Minerals, & AntiOxident as well.
They're rich in Fiber,
Vitamin C, Manganese, &
they are also about 85% water. But one of the most important #🔑Vitamin they contain is #VitaminK, which is an essential fat-soluble vitamin that plays an important role in bone and heart health. It is one of the main vitamins involved in bone #mineralization and blood clotting, but also helps to maintain #BrainFunction, a healthy metabolism, and to protect against #cancer. And from what our bodies are able to #absorb of Vitamin K via our #DIEts has a great influence on intestinal bacteria & digestive health. Vitamin K is also one of the most crucial vitamins for preventing heart disease. Studies have shown that it lowers the risk of #Cardiovascular #mortality.

Star Fruit: A Hiccup in the Management of Kidney Disease #Facts NOV. 22, 2017. Patients with #kidneydisease must often follow a basic “renal” diet, which consists of controlled fluid intake, high protein, and low sodium, potassium, and phosphorus. This requires patients to limit or avoid numerous #foods rich in these minerals, such as canned soups, bananas, and dairy, most of which are familiar to clinicians and simple to address during a visit.
One food that isn’t common but rising in popularity, is #starfruit The National Kidney Foundation’s (NKF) Dietary Guidelines for Adults Starting on Hemodialysis instructs patients to always avoid star fruit, many #clinicians are unaware of the effects.. Star fruit, or #carambola is the five-ridged #fruit of the Averrhoa carambola tree of the Oxalidaceae family. Although the fruit and its #juice are widely available throughout the world, the plant is native to and largely consumed in the tropical countries of #Latin #America and Southeast Asia. The fruit is a source of #fiber #potassium and #antioxidants such as #vitamin C.2 Among its traditional medicinal uses are its roles in fever, skin inflammations, and as a diuretic. In patients with kidney disease, however, consumption can be #toxic and potentially fatal.
#Hiccups are a common and often harmless myoclonus of the diaphragm. However, in patients with #renaldisease and recent star fruit ingestion, this spasm can be a sign of toxicity and occurs in up to 94% of patients who present with intoxication. #Toxicity can also result in vomiting, weakness, confusion, convulsions, and death.2,4
Star fruit contains two molecules that are responsible for kidney damage and neurotoxicity: oxalate and the recently discovered caramboxin.
Oxalic acid’s effects on kidneys are well-known and well defined, partly due to its culpability in ethylene glycol toxicity and death. #Oxalate crystallizes and forms obstructive deposits that cause direct tissue damage in the form of both apoptosis and acute tubular necrosis.5-7 Neurotoxic effects are due to the more elusive compound of interest, #caramboxin #FOODNINFO #NINFONETWORK #VEHICLENINFO #FOODNETWORK #FOODANDWINE #EATER #NY #LA
