The secret of eternal youth and immortality is no longer a secret for the Thai people — turns out, they found the clue to this puzzle in lotus seeds.
How to try some lotus seeds on Koh Samui
Lotus seeds present endless benefits and are well known for their rejuvenating abilities. The thing is, the seeds contain a precious enzyme – the L-isoaspartyl methyltransferase – which slows down ageing. Furthermore, according to doctors, lotus seeds prevent tissue inflammation.

A lotus flower blossoms for up to two weeks, and during that time, it forms up to 35 seeds in its pod, which then can be picked, dried and eaten. In order to extract the edible part of the plant, you should first pick out the seeds from the seed pod, then peel the fruit, remove the thin film, split it in half and extract the bitter-tasting lotus germ. Now you can treat yourself to the seed that tastes slightly similar to an unripe hazelnut.

It is possible to buy lotus seeds almost at any supermarket on the island.
