Prekese: Health and Spiritual Benefits for Ghanaians
Have you ever taught the reasons why our grandmothers and mothers love using prekese to prepare food? Have you ever heard that Ghana is among the few countries in the world that produce the prekese fruit/plant?
By the end of this article, you will find out the answers to both of the questions above. In this article, I am going to show you some of the health and spiritual benefits of prekese for Ghanaians and people from outside Ghana as a whole.
Ghana as a country is known to be one of the countries in the world with a lot of herbalists and herbs. One of such herbs that were used back then was “Prɛkɛsɛ”.
Prekese as recalled by our grandparents and those who lived before them has several spiritual benefits. Aside from the spiritual benefits, the prekese fruit is one of the most important ingredients used when preparing groundnut soup.
Is Prekese in the Bible?
For several years now, many people have been asking whether prekese was stated in the Bible. According to the second book of Moses, Exodus 30:34 reads then the Lord said to Moses, “Take fragrant spices – gum resin, ohycha and galbanum – and pure frankincense, all in equal amounts”
According to traditionalists and some pastors, the presence of the prekese fruit in the Bible signifies its spiritual importance. This is because Moses was asked by God to prepare these fruits to use them as incense.

Health Benefits of Prekese
The prekese fruit has several health benefits. Although we cannot state all the health benefits, we have explained some of the top health benefits of prekese.
Healing of cuts and wounds
One of the several health benefits of the prekese plant is can be used as a remedy for the healing of wounds or cut. If you use the prekese for your wounds, there wouldn’t be any negative side effects.
All you need to do is to grind the prekese fruit into a paste. Once you get the paste, then gently apply it to the wound.
After some few days, your wounds will naturally heal like magic. One important thing is that, once you apply the prekese paste, you must not use anything to cover it. Otherwise, the wound will not heal very fast.
It can be used for controlling diabetes
Another health benefit of the prekese plant is its ability to control diabetes; specifically, Type 2 diabetes also known as diabetes mellitus.
When persons with type 2 diabetes take prekese regularly it reduces the glucose level in their blood. This way, the glucose that increases their sugar level reduces and equally reduces the negative effects of diabetes.
It helps to lose weight faster

When consumed, the prekese removes the excess fat in the body. Excess fat is what causes overweight and obesity.
When you use prekese to lose weight, there are no negative side effects associated with it. Once you take the tea, you just need to add some small exercises to it and you will see the prekese is action.
It is used to cure Gastrointestinal Disorders
