Health Benefits of Drinking Tiger Nut (Milk)


Tiger nut milk has so many nutritional and health benefits that most people aren’t aware of. The most common amazing health benefit of tiger nut milk is that it helps prevent heart attacks as well as improve blood circulation in the body. This natural nut can either be chewed as well as been drank. It is known as Kunnu Aya in Nigeria and Horchata de Chufa in Spain.

1. It contains high level of fibre

Fibre is needed to keep our digestive system up and running. Drinking tiger nuts milk is a very rich source of dietary fibre. This is because about 30% of tiger nuts is made of fibre than most vegetables and fruits. One health benefit of drinking tiger nut milk is that it aids in weight loss.

2. They help to control blood pressure

Controlling blood pressure is another wonderful advantage of drinking tiger nuts milk because they are high in amino acids. This natural nut contains an amino acid called arginine, which has been proven to be beneficial to help people suffering with high blood pressure.

3. A natural source of magnesium

The body needs magnesium to keep the immune system functioning properly and maintain blood levels. Tiger nuts is a natural source of magnesium, which when eating or drank will help the muscle, immune system and nerve function of the body function properly.

4. A healthy source of protein

If you are a body builder, you would know the importance of protein to your muscles. Instead of using artificial energy boosters, drugs e.t.c, why not settle for a much more harmless natural source of protein which tiger nuts milk provides. Tiger nuts are in fact one the best, non-meat, sources of protein you can find anywhere.

5. They help regulate blood sugar levels

For those suffering from high sugar blood levels, insoluble fibre is what you would need and it is found wholly in tiger nut milk. Another thing is that it does not cause peaks and troughs in the blood sugar levels just as carbohydrates does.

6. Can be used as a substitute for cow’s milk

If you are lactose tolerant, Tiger nut milk is what you should be taking as it contains no lactose but has plenty of calcium which is a healthy alternative to cow’s milk.

7. Tiger nuts are a healthy source of Vitamin E

Vitamin E is a good antioxidant vitamin which helps to protect the body against the damage caused by free radicals inside the body. Drinking tiger nuts milk can help protect the body since it is a good source of the antioxidant, Vitamin E. Research also shows that eating the nuts can help prevent both cancer and coronary diseases, as well as slow down the onset of the signs of ageing.

8. Tiger nuts contain healthy fats

Another health benefits of drinking tiger nuts milk is that they contain healthy fats & oils. According to research, the oil extracted from tiger nuts consists of about 80% unsaturated fats which is good when compared to other kinds of oil.

9. They help fight against prostate cancer in men

Recent studies conducted by medical experts have found out that tiger nuts are essential to help fight against prostate cancer in men. Most doctors advise that drinking tiger nuts drink and also eating tomatoes help fight against this killer in men.

How to Buy A Used Car In Nigeria


With the increase of the naira against the dollar, buying a brand new car in Nigeria can be really expensive. People now resort to buy used cars a.k.a tokunbo cars. Although these used cars in Nigeria are cheaper than brand new cars, they still pose a great disadvantage to the buyer of such cheap cars.

One of such disadvantage of buying a fairly used car in Nigeria is that, it might have been stolen. And since not all are car experts, we recommend that you surf the internet on the characteristics of such cars, the model, mileage, durability of the car.

You might as well want to take a friend or a mechanic along with you so as to help access the used vehicle. Also request for the documents of such vehicle, and verify it before you purchase the car.

To buy a used car in Nigeria, below are things to check

  1. Check the Vehicle Identification Number to know the history of the vehicle and whether it is a stolen vehicle.
  2. Ask the seller permission to test run the vehicle at least for two days before you make payment.
  3. Make sure the papers of the vehicle are all original, intact and complete. Verify such documents (see below) before you transact.
  4. Ask the seller his or her reasons for selling the car.
  5. A thorough inspection of the used vehicle, the bonnet, engine, fender, bumper, tyres, paint and scratches on the vehicle. This is to ensure that the vehicle is in perfect condition before it is purchased.
  6. When inspecting the engine and fuel tank, check underneath the vehicle for leakages.
  7. We suggest the use of cheque rather than cash in making payment. If cheque is not available, you can wire the money through electronic transfer.
  8. Transact such dealings in a public open place with one or two witnesses present.

Important Documents Needed When Buying Used Car

We don’t want you to buy an undocumented vehicle that could land you in trouble with the police for purchasing a stolen or smuggled car into the country. Here are 8 vital documents you should ask for when buying a Nigerian used car:

#1. The custom documents which must be fully stamped. Please make sure you check if all information corresponds like the name and car model. Make sure the vehicle documents are clear and not folded.

#2. The original copy of Computerized Motor Registration (CMR).

#3. Original copy of current insurance.

#4. Original Vehicle licence copy.

#5. Original copy of road worthiness certificate.

#6. The original copy of plate number allocation.

#7. Fully stamped original proof of ownership.

#8. Two printed and signed documents of change of ownership and the receipt of purchase from previous owner

If the car is tinted, then you would need to colect the tinted permit document including the police report of change of ownership/plate number/engine number/ chassis number (VIN). All these are very important because FRSC and the police can check such when you are driving.
