Recent research results mention that in purple eggplant seeds contain nicotine or addictive substances in cigarettes. This is certainly surprising because nicotine is usually found only in tobacco or cigarettes.
The problem, if the nicotine substance in the eggplant is consumed, is it okay? Or give the same effect as nicotine in cigarettes?
When eating eggplant, generally small seeds that stick in the middle of the eggplant will also be eaten. It would be very difficult to eliminate the small seeds, although scientists say that there is nicotine in the seeds.
The effect of nicotine on the human body is a stimulant, which triggers the rise of adrenaline. So if you eat a food containing nicotine or smoking cigarettes then it triggers the release of dopamine, also known as a happy hormone.
According to the study, per 100 grams of eggplant contain 100 nanogram nicotine content. So if you are a smoker who wants to stop smoking, just eat a lot of eggplants so that the nicotine addiction in your body can get a healthier source.
The positive effect, eggplant consumption will not cause an addictive effect as in people who smoke. Eggplant is safe for the body even healthy, as long as you do not eat too much in a day, as reported by Thedailymeal page, Wednesday (27/09/2017).
