APIOS AMERICANA. Groundnuts are the only nut in the world that grows below the ground (peanuts are not nuts by the way!). The plant sends shoots into the earth and form pods. Allow this to develop for 2 months (the plant will turn yellow). It is a highly nutritious plant in that it has 2 1/2 times the protein of an egg (..which is considered by some to be the perfect protein). Only a few amino acids are lacking in the groundnut but milk has them and makes a good drink when you are eating groundnuts. Always chew this nut to a very smooth paste before swallowing or it will resist digestion. Roasting helps it to breakdown in the body too. Some people around the world use it to make a highly nutritious flour for bread. Known to help with people with diabetes and other sugar disorders. Just simply eat a handful before your meal and it helps to maintain sugar levels in the blood, and can further benefit by providing high levels of niacin. People with obesity can benefit also from this herb because it tends to curb appetite. Studies have shown it help in hemophilia. Also useful in diarrhea caused due to nicotinic acid deficiency. Eat the nuts with goats milk and a squeeze of lemon, and it will benefit the patient highly. The oil is good to put on the face before going to bed for acne prevention and nourishment.
