Health benefits of durian

1. Reduce cancer risk

Durians contain compounds like flavonoids and carotenoids which are known for their antioxidant properties. This may neutralize cancer-promoting free radicals and decrease the risk of other chronic diseases.

2. Prevent heart disease

Several compounds in durian may help reduce cholesterol levels and risk of atherosclerosis, or the hardening of arteries. In contrary with the myth that durian is loaded with cholesterol, durian has monounsaturated fats which help to lower bad LDL cholesterol level.

3. Fight infection

The rind contains compounds which have antibacterial and anti-yeast properties. These compounds support your immunity against infections and viral attacks.

4. Improve mood and sleep quality

Durians contain tryptophan that gets converted to serotonin, which may induce relaxation feelings and improved mood. This tryptophan is also converted to a hormone called melatonin which controls your sleep cycle and may help you fall asleep easier.

5. Promote digestion

Durian is rich in fibre which aids in digestion and improves bowel movement. Essential vitamin content like B1 and B3 may also increase your appetite and promote nutrient absorption.

Rule of thumb – Eat in moderation

Despite all these health benefits, durians are energy-dense and can lead to unnecessary weight gain if eaten frequently and in huge portion. Any good stuff will have to be consumed in moderation. The next time you feel like indulging in a durian feast, remember to invite your family and friends so you don’t end up having the whole box to yourself.
