Known as bissy in Jamaica, kola nuts are commonly used to increase energy.
Bissy (cola nut) is the fruit of the cola tree, which is native to the tropical rainforests of Africa. It has typically been kept in many Jamaican homes where it is used as an antidote against poison, usually food poisoning, and allergies. Bissy shows antioxidant properties and bissy is also used to treat fever, relieve inflammation and diarrhoea.
A study in 2004 has also shown that bissy can inhibit the growth of some bacteria. In general, bissy energises and strengthens the body and is also a tonic because of its detoxing and antioxidant properties, is also good for the skin.
The bissy powder and leaf can also be put onto cuts to promote quicker healing.
