3. Bitter kola and female fertility
Some people believe that bitter kola can help men to perform better in bed. But not much is said about the effect this plant can have on women and female fertility.
There was a study conducted in Lagos, which was meant to help understand the true ‘nature’ of bitter kola for females, but it wasn’t performed on humans. Female rats were used in the study, and scientists discovered some interesting things.
According to the study, regular consumption of bitter kola by rats has an effect of a contraceptive, because this nut lowers down the animal fertility and partly blocks ovulation. It is hard to say whether women can rely on bitter kola as a contraceptive as well.
