Les bienfaits de la vanille

The benefits of vanilla

The benefits of vanilla in a nutshell:

It helps digestion.

It is an aphrodisiac.

It is stress-relieving.

It slows down aging.

Vanilla has several health benefits, in addition to adding delicious flavor to dishes. It is renowned for its digestive, aphrodisiac and anti-stress properties, and contains phenols which slow down cellular aging. However, it is important to note that these benefits should be taken with caution due to the relatively small amounts of vanilla typically consumed.

Vanilla can aid digestion by stimulating the digestive system and promoting enzyme production. It is also renowned for its aphrodisiac properties, especially in Latin America. Plus, it can help reduce stress and anxiety, just like chocolate.

Vanilla is rich in phenols, which gives it antioxidant properties and helps slow cell aging. It can therefore be beneficial for the health of the skin, hair and nails.

As a nutritionist, I recommend using vanilla as an alternative to sugar in dessert recipes. Its intense aroma can replace some of the white sugar while adding flavor and satisfying the taste buds. For example, a few drops of vanilla extract can be added to a smoothie or yogurt for a delicious, natural flavor.
