Passionfruit Specials for April 
 
 
 
Did you Know?
Markisa is the name for Passion Fruit in Indonesia. It is an orange color, which is quite from the small purple color it is known as in other countries. When you see the Passionfruit sitting in the market place isn't appealing, since most of the fruits are discolored, but once you break it open and taste the contents you quickly learn that the discolored exterior has no influence on the taste of the fruit. 
 
How to Eat Markisa 
To eat Markisa press your thumbs into the soft delicate exterior and pull it apart. It's that simple. Having done that you can suck the contents out or if you prefer, cut the Markisa in half and spoon the contents into a bowl prior to eating, or straight into your mouth. Don't let the motley colored shell fool you, the fruit inside is lovely and sweet, not super tangy and sweet sour like other Passionfruit.
 
Markisa can be used for desserts, added to fruit salad and is commonly made into a syrup that makes a refreshing drink when mixed with iced water or soda. Wikipedia says there are 2 varieties available in Java (white and yellow) and both have a sweet and juicy pulp with crunchy seeds. Have you tried them? 
 
The Passionfruit is so called because it is one of the many species of passion flower, the English translation of the Latin genus name, Passiflora. Around 1700, the name was given by missionaries in Brazil as an educational aid while trying to convert the indigenous inhabitants to Christianity; its name was flor das cinco chagas or "flower of the five wounds" to illustrate the crucifixion of Christ, with other plant components also named after an emblem in the Passion of Jesus...Copyright (C) https://www.indoindians.com .

Benefits of eating this Passionfruit
- It is a good source of nutrition for the body - Passionfruit contains vitamin A and C. Vitamin A can improve the quality of vision and help the body fight infection and Vitamin C in this fruit serves to increase immunity and is also one of the strong antioxidants to fight diseases.

- Rich in Antioxidants - The antioxidants in this fruit have extraordinary functions, which, it is said, can inhibit the development of cancer cells in the body. One of the antioxidants present in this fruit is beta-carotene which not only helps to prevent cancer cells, the antioxidants in Passionfruit are found to be soluble in body fat.

- Streamlining the Digestive System - The benefit of the sweet Passionfruit is that it supports the digestive system. The high fiber content in the yellow passion fruit is very effective in preventing and overcoming digestive disorders. It is also very effective in cleaning the digestive and intestinal tract, so our digestive health can be maintained. If you have difficulty going to the loo, constipation, diarrhea, or want to prevent hemorrhoids, try a few Passionfruit as an alternative to chemical alternatives. But remember, everything in moderation!

-
Treating Asthma - Passionfruit has the effect of blocking histamine which causes asthma symptoms. 
 
- Insomnia - Passion fruit has the effect of calming the human nervous system, it can make one's feelings more calm and be helpful in calming the mind. Who needs Meditation, right! By consuming Passionfruit before going to sleep you will feel more calm and sleep better.

- Lose weight - For people who are on a diet, everything is examined for its health benefits and carbs and fibre and calories and more. Passionfruit has low calories, only 97 calories per 100 grams and is low in sodium and fat. It also contains good amounts of carbohydrates and natural sugars. This fruit nutrition works to reduce cholesterol levels in the body and the high fiber content makes you feel full.  
 
So, the upshot is Passionfruit is good for you in many ways and Taksu celebrates this with your choice of delicious food and drinks and even Spa products. Check out the yummy food and Spa choices below.

Indra Kusomo - Ground Alpha Alignment

Indra is originally from Jakarta, Indonesia. He's a Yoga teacher, Movement Intelligence Facilitator and Thai Yoga Massage Practitioner. Indra recently decided to make his Ground Alpha Alignment skills available to the public. He was trained in Alpha Alignment, which treats receivers on a massage table, but soon discovered that his Yogic flexibility allows him to enter awkward positions while treating receivers on the ground. The stability and wide space of the ground gives him the added advantage of releasing more tensions from the receivers and ground them further. Hence, Ground Alpha Alignment was conceived.
