Indonesia Gives Us Kratom, Patchouli, Coffee, and Coconut Palm Sugar

Indonesia provides kratom to the world. Indonesia also exports other tree crops: patchouli (80% of the global supply), coconut palm sugar, rubber, coffee, and various spices.

It’s interesting that Indonesia is acclaimed by many to have the best and strongest kratom, patchouli, and coffee. We have already looked at how kratom and patchouli share many characteristics in our blog article “Kratom and Patchouli”:

In that post, we explained how patchouli oil is a very potent herbal substance, with some similarities to kratom.

It was explained how patchouli has been used as a traditional first-aid for generations. With a pungent fragrance that stands out from everything else, patchouli is said to be effective in helping to combat stress, anxiety, and bouts of depression. It is also used as an aphrodisiac, mood booster, joy enhancer, sociability inducer, and comfort in times of stress and sorrow.

What’s that litany of benefits remind you of? Sounds a bit similar to our beloved mitragyna speciosa, kratom’s botanical name.

Now, let’s look at the benefits of coconut palm sugar.

Right off the bat, the taste is terrific. It may remind you of caramel corn. It’s delicious to eat raw, right out of the jar. It’s always nice when something that’s good for you also has a great flavor. That makes it more fun. But don’t overdo it.

Coconut palm sugar contains many wonderful benefits. It contains healthy fats that are known to help prevent high cholesterol and heart disease. Inulin is one of these constituents of coconut palm sugar that is an important dietary fiber your body needs. It helps keep your digestive tract in good health, it can potentially prevent colon cancer, and it’s great at balancing your blood sugar.

Another really wonderful aspect of coconut palm sugar is its glycemic index. Common white cane sugar has a glycemic index (GI) of 65. That’s too high to be optimal for our bodies. But coconut sugar has a GI of only 35, making it closer to the GI of natural fruit sugars, which is around 25.

Standard table sugar is pure sucrose, but coconut sugar only contains about 75 percent sucrose. The rest of the ingredients of coconut palm sugar are nutrients, short-chain fatty acids, minerals, and fiber.

Coconut sugar contains needed minerals such as iron, zinc, and calcium, which possess a variety of health benefits, including stronger bones and stronger defenses against cases of flu and other diseases. In addition, it has good levels of nitrogen and vitamin C.

Coconut sugar contains potassium, magnesium, and sodium, which your body uses for regulating water content and regulating a variety of vital heart, nerve, and muscle functions. Coconut palm sugar has nearly 400 times more potassium than regular cane sugar.

Because coconut sugar is dehydrated coconut sap, it’s considered an unprocessed raw food. As a natural, raw food item, it keeps and provides all the rich antioxidants found in the original source. Antioxidants reduce cell oxidation, and this helps combat diseases and the devastating effects of aging.

We tend to get too much processed white cane sugar in our diets. This is a huge problem that coconut palm sugar can help solve by being a natural, unprocessed, raw, and healthier substitute.

Isn’t wonderful that some of the nicest things in life, kratom, coffee, patchouli, and coconut palm sugar, are produced in very high quality and abundance in Indonesia? Send prayers and good vibrations to Indonesia, especially when you see news reports about tragedies that sometimes occur there. Indonesia is our great and tremendous ally in the realm of supremely beneficial natural substances.
