Do you still drink garri, these are some important reasons to stop drinking garri

Garri obtained from the roots and roots of the nervous plant also contains proteins, fats, carbohydrates, iron, vitamins B and C and starch. The leaves also contain calcium, iron, fats and proteins.

   Garri is a carbon-based food used in many West African countries, especially Nigeria. Made with kassa, raw Garri with cream or a little white flour in yellow with a slightly delicate flavor. Garri's first two main characters are "White" and "Yellow" Garri. 

Above all, two varieties of Garri have the same properties, yellow color can be obtained only by adding a few drops of cassava flour during drying / drying.

   Garri can be eaten without further cooking, as a snack, dipped into a bowl containing water, sugar, peanuts and milk called sauces. For example, we have made barley flour with figs that have figs and have a very good taste, which should be in this way. 

In most West Africa, sugar or honey is added, as well as coconut palms, peanuts, bird's milk and groundnut. In many garri recipes, it is cooked by adding boiling water and garri snacks to form a dough called Eba. 

Eba always comes with lots of soups or stews. Many parts of Africa have this type of dish full of cassava. However, Garri does have side effects and here are some reasons why you should not drink too much garri;

   1. It can make you weak

   Garri is a Nigerian food that almost every Nigerian drinks every day. Garri can make it harder to get tired after drinking it, especially starving and drinking on an empty stomach (if you don’t eat anything). 

Even if it doesn’t happen immediately after drinking but gives you time, you will become depressed after drinking garri without eating another meal. 

This can lead to feelings of sleep and therefore the day is over because you may not be able to do anything afterwards because of everything you want to do in the sun !!!

   2. Eye defects

   Garri is made with cassava which is known to contain hydrogen cyanide. Large quantities of garlic cyanide can cause severe eye damage. 

However, regular, safe and complete processing of garri should reduce the concentration of cyanide to an imaginary level.

   3. Blood in the blood

   This has not been scientifically proven, but people often say that drinking too much alcohol is dry. Even if you drink it without adding milk.

   4. It can make the wound worse

   More importantly, another frightening effect of cyanide, which is an organic substance in nature, is that it can cause stomach problems and worsen wound conditions. 

If you have a sore throat, you should not lose too much on garrium as this can harm your health.

   5. Weight loss factors

   Cassava which is a fruit which is part of the side dish is made up of carbohydrates. Garlic has 360 calories, which is equivalent to seventy percent of carbohydrates. 

As a result, depleted gases lead to excessive storage of carbohydrates in the body, which can lead to unwanted weight gain. So you should know that making garri is not good for weight loss
