Health Benefits Of Carambola Powder

Dec 06, 2017

For centuries in indigenous medicine around the world, carambola's anti-emetic, anti-inflammatory, and antihemorrhagic properties have been used to treat a wide variety of health conditions, form chronic headache and colds, to gastroenteritis, postpartum edema, and worm infestation. Some traditional applications of starfruit that have proven to be effective over time include:

  • Reducing inflammation. Stem extract of carambola has shown an anti-inflammatory effect comparable to that of acetyl salicylic acid(aspirin).

  • Relieving nausea. This tropical fruit is widely used to alleviate the symptoms of hangover.

  • Aiding coagulation. Carambola have been traditionally used for halting hemorrhages and relieving bleeding hemorrhoids.

Additionally, preliminary research has supported the uses of carambola for:

  • Treating skin disorders. As an external application, it is also used for chronic skin conditions, such as psoriasis and atopic dermatitis.

  • Lowering blood sugar. Starfruit has hypoglycemic properties, decreasing blood glucose levels.

  • Eliminating worm infestations. As an anthelmintic, carambola leaf extract effectively helps to exterminate and expel parasites.

  • Relieving ulcers. Due to its triterpenoid, flavonoid, and mucilage content, carambola has partial anti-ulcer activity.
