AYURVEDA & MEDICINAL USES

Use as treatment in Ayurveda medicine for throat disease, carcinogenesis and liver damage. According to a study published in Food Chemistry, a compound found in rambutan rind called geraniin displays anti-hyerglycemic qualities. According to a study published in the Journal of Biological Sciences, rambutan rind illustrated protective effects against collagen-induced arthritis when tested in rats, and thus holds potential in preventing tissue damage and arthritic inflammation.

NOTABLE FACTS

Today. many diverse regions grow rambutan including parts of India, Sri Lanka, Hawaii, South America, Tanzania, Australia, Zanzibar, Central America, countries of the Caribbean, and Pacific Asian countries like the Philippines. Rambutan is one fruit that a person never forgets once seen: its loud, spiky, flaming red exterior begs for attention.
