Today's topic is eggplants. 

Eggplants are one of the Vegetables we use the most in our 
home. There are many ways to cook and fry eggplants, in
this blog I will be sharing one of our recipes we frequently use.

Eggplants help with heart health, blood cholesterol, cancer, 
cognitive function, weight management and even eye health. 
A single serving can provide at least 5% of a person's daily 
requirements of fiber, copper, meganose, B6 and thiamine.

The high fiber content helps with digestion which helps you with a 
balanced diet. The fiber also helps with your bone health. It can also 
help you manage type 2 diabetes. The fiber controls the absorption of 
glucose, and may also help you lower your bad cholesterol. This can 
or may reduce your blood pressure and decrease your chance of 
cardiovascular disease. 

The eggplant can control your iron level. If you have to much iron in 
your body, the plant possessing a "chelating" effect, which is the ability 
to bind iron and remove it from your body. We can be thankful for the 
eggplant, because it reduces the chances of us getting anemia. 

Eggplant can make your skin glow. They have a great amount of water 
content, it helps to keep your body and skin hydrated. They have minerals 
and vitamins that can give you a clear and smooth tone. 

Simple kitchen ingredients can help you with your dream of looking
younger. A eggplants skin has a lot of anthocyanins, the antioxidants 
act as an anti-aging agent.

Having trouble with weak hair, the high water content in the eggplant
nourishes your scalp from within, giving you stronger roots. Rub some 
minced eggplant on your scalp for 10-15 minutes. Rinse it off with luke 
warm water and a mild shampoo.
