Fruit of the Gods

Golden Figs for Potency

Fig-ure this: the fruit of the gods—fresh figs— offer up some divine benefits for both men and women. They are packed with potassium, a mineral that assists in controlling blood pressure, plus a healthy amount of fiber to help you lose weight. Did you know that figs contain calcium too, making them a powerful bone density promoter. The most popular consumer figs are the Black (California) and the Mediterranean green figs, which can usually be found fresh in the summer months or into autumn.

A yogic recipe for Golden Figs combines the health benefits of fresh figs with saffron milk to make a delicious potency food for men and women (helpful for promoting vitality and prostate function in men). Soak 1 tablespoon saffron overnight in ½ cup milk. In the morning, blend the milk and saffron until smooth. Carefully wash 10-15 fresh figs. Draw milk and saffron into a clean syringe and inject the saffron “nectar” into the figs. Eat up to three per day and store the rest in the freezer. Celebrate the fantastic fig!
