Benefits of Durian

I just had durian last Friday. Seems like there are some health benefits:

-Durian is extremely nutritious because it is rich in vitamin B, C and E and with high iron content. Eating durian is alleged to restore the health of ailing humans and animals.
-A preparation from its roots and leaves is prescribed by traditional doctors for fevers and jaundice.
-Decoctions of the leaves and fruits are applied to swellings and skin diseases.
-Durian fruit helps lower cholesterol.
-Durian is a strong blood cleanser.
-The ash of the burned rind is taken after childbirth.
-Durian contains high levels of the amino acid tryptophan, known to alleviate anxiety, depression, and insomnia, and create feelings of happiness, by raising levels of serotonin in the brain
-Durian contains high level of soft protein which makes it a good muscle builder.
-Durian has a reputation as a powerful aphrodisiac.
-Durian is recommended as a good source of raw fats.
