7 Health Benefits Of “Fura Da Nono” Drink

Published

on

Fab.ng is back to serve beverage lovers everything about this delicious local drink, “Fura Da Nono“, which is made from millet balls (fura) soaked in thick, fermented cow milk (nono). The local gruel is often very thick and offers a sweet flavour that some individuals prefer over processed yoghurt.

Although “Fura da Nono” has no recorded or known side effects, the major challenge with its consumption is hygiene. Preparing the drink in an unhygienic environment increases the risk of contamination which leads to typhoid fever. But with good hygiene, Fura is safe for consumption even for pregnant women.

Fresh Health Benefits of Fura da Nono – Troop Pharmacy

The protein-based drink originated from the Northern part of Nigeria, particularly the Fulani people of the country.

Fura da Nono“, known as “fermented milk cereal” in English, is not just tasty and sweet, but also has a lot of health benefits which include:

 1. Reducing cholesterol level.

So many things we consume help to raise the cholesterol in the body, but the vitamin B3 content in Fura helps to reduce the bad cholesterol in the body, which has been linked to a lot of heart-related issues.

2. keeping the bone strong.

Milk and millet used in making Fura, have a high calcium content which is very vital for the maintenance of strong bones and teeth. It also contains phosphorus and vitamin D which are needed for retaining bone density.

3. Lowering the risk of heart attacks.

Fura contains magnesium which has been observed to help in lowering blood pressure, which in turn reduces the chances of heart attack. This is the reason millet is regarded as a heart-healthy food.

4. Aiding digestion and preventing constipation. 

By easing the bowel movement and letting the food digest properly, the fibre in Fura da Nono aids digestion and prevents constipation and irregular bowel movement.

5. Helping with fat metabolism. 

Fats in the body are broken down into smaller compounds used to provide energy to the body cells with the help of the phosphorus content in Fura da Nono.

6. Reducing the risk of type 2 diabetes

Since type 2 diabetes has been observed to be caused by a deficiency in magnesium, the magnesium content in Fura is very essential in preventing and or managing type 2 diabetes.

7. Boosting brain health. 

Drinking Fura, which has a high milk content, helps to nourish and boost brain power. Generally, milk helps to boost the overall brain development of a growing child.
