Palm wine is a local alcoholic drink which is very common in Africa. Most people take alcohol for its intoxicating effect, however, this drink is highly medicinal.

Below are some health importance of palm wine:

Eye vision
Palm wine is a good source of Vitamins C and B which are very good for the eye. While vitamin C helps in building the connective tissues of the body and the blood vessels of the eye preventing related eye problems like cataracts, macular degeneration etc., Vitamin B1 and B12 help in solving vascular related issues that concern the retina which could result in chronic inflammation and more. Generally, vitamins help in keeping the eye healthy and reduce the chances of getting eye problems as much as possible.

Hair and skin health
Palm wine contains nutrients which help in nourishing the skin, the hair and even the nails, the presence of nutrients such as the vitamins, zinc, magnesium and others play a very important role in the improvement. It also helps in the promoting of new body cells by removing the dead cells in the body and replacing it, thereby giving the skin a soft, smooth and better appearance. Also, palm wine can be used externally in the treatment of skin conditions such as rashes, eczema etc., especially in small children.

Increases breast milk
Palm wine has long served as the main beverage for lactating mothers in many African countries like Nigeria, Cameroon, etc., where it is mostly cultivated and can be easily accessed. It has been locally proven to help mothers whose breast milk is low by increasing the flow for adequate breastfeeding.
