Since, Tamarind fruit helps you have good digestion and it’s effects come swiftly. It is a tropical tree, native to Africa. The fruit pulp is edible and popular. The hard green pulp of a young fruit is very sour and acidic, so much it cannot be consumed directly, but is often used as a component of savory dishes. The ripened fruit is edible, as it becomes less sour and somewhat sweeter, but still very acidic. It is used in desserts as a jam, blended into juices or sweetened drinks, or as a snack. It is also consumed as a natural laxative. In Thailand, there is a carefully cultivated sweet variety with little to no tartness, grown specifically to be eaten as a fresh fruit. It is also sometimes eaten preserved in sugar with chili as a candy.
