👉🏽 LET’S EXPLORE THE HEALTH ⁣BENEFITS OF FIGS. ⁣

⌛️HISTORICAL BACKGROUND:⁣
The fig (Ficus carica L.) is a classical fruit tree associated with the beginnings of horticulture in the Mediterranean basin. Since ancient time, the Mediterranean region and the Middle East countries have been the most important cultivating centres of figs (Subash et al., 2014).⁣

😇HEALTHIER THAN GREEN TEA:⁣
Figs are an excellent source of phenolic compounds, such as proanthocyanidins, whereas red wine and tea, which are two good sources of phenolic compounds, contain phenols lower than those in fig (Mawa et al., 2013). ⁣

🚽ENHANCES YOUR TOILET EXPERIENCE:⁣
In Indian medicine, fruits are used as a mild laxative, expectorant, and diuretic, thereby helping to relieve water retention (Husain et al., 2013).⁣

🌈OTHER HEALTH BENEFITS:⁣
The leaves, roots, fruit and latex of the plant are known for their health properties including:⁣
✅Acetyl cholinesterase inhibition⁣
✅Antifungal ⁣

(Subash et al., 2014).⁣
