Bitter kola, also known as bitter cola or Garcinia Kola, is a plant in Central and Western Africa that has long been valued for its medicinal properties. Although traditional African medicine uses all parts of the Bitter Kola plant, the seeds are most commonly eaten.

Bitter kola seeds have a sharp, bitter flavor that eases into a slight sweetness as you chew, and they’re typically eaten raw.

Infections - Bitter kola has been used over the years to fight infections from the common cold to hepatitis. A 2018 study showed that bitter kola could help combat coughs, bacterial infections, and viral infections. Eating bitter kola when an infection starts may help fight the infection and make you feel better more quickly.


Inflammation - Bitter kola seeds have commonly been chewed on in Africa to fight against inflammatory conditions like arthritis. The high levels of potassium in bitter kola may be a contributing factor in reducing inflammation.

Diabetes - Early studies suggest that a chemical called kolaviron, which is found in bitter kola, may protect against hypoglycemia in people with type 2 diabetes. Although this first study was done on rats and has not yet been reproduced on humans, these early findings are promising.

Nutrients per Serving - The FDA considers bitter kola generally safe to eat but classifies it similarly to essential oils. That means there’s not much information about serving sizes or nutritional data. H

How to Prepare Bitter Kola

Bitter kola can be eaten on its own, uncooked, like many other nuts. However, remember that it’s called “bitter” for a reason. Bitter kola can be an acquired taste.
