Men’s sexual urge diminishes with old age, but old Gambian men have found an unorthodox solution in bitter kola to rev up their bedroom performance.
A recent report by GRTS finally laid bare the secret that an increasing number of oldies are consuming bitter kola to help boost their sex drive.
Dr Sallah of Lamtoro Clinic told GRTS’ Mama Jaye that the tropical nut may have the potential to assist with libido because of its stimulant effects.
The national broadcaster disclosed that a farmer in Brufut has started cultivating bitter kola and it seems very soon there would be Gambian produced bitter kolas in the market.
Also known as Garcinia kola, the tropical nut is mainly found in western and central Africa. It has been used in Gambian culture for centuries for both traditional and medicinal purposes. It contains dimeric flavonoid, lipase inhibitor which is believed to have many healing benefits.
