Is having durian in the summer good for the body?
CheckCheckCIn: A lot of people have the impression that durian is a fruit that can nourish the body. From a Chinese medicine perspective, durian can dispel cold and warm the stomach, consuming appropriately can alleviate symptoms of cold limbs, fatigue, lack of energy, poor appetite. That is why people believe it can nourish the body. Those with cold bodies can eat it, but should limit to 1-2 times per week and 1-2 pieces each time. Eating too much durian can lead to abdominal bloating, acne, constipation or smelly stool. During the summer, eating more can lead to high chances of having dry heat in the body. Note that those with high blood pressure, diabetes, eczema should not eat durian. People often think of durian as king of fruits and mangosteen as queen of fruits. That’s because durian is hot in nature, and mangosteen is cold in nature, so there is a saying to first have durian then have mangosteen.
