Medical benefits of Musa Paradisiaca (2017)


The space is “a brown square on black ground” or a “brown square on white ground” (it depends on the colour of the dance floor). In any case, it’s not brown at all, and it’s not square either. False parallel lines, a falsely geometrical square, falsely monochrome. Boundaries flow between seeing and knowing. Walk-in abstract compositions on the floor, in the attempt to reveal pure experience, in order to open up the power of imagination. See, with eyes closed.

Our society has become an image factory that feeds itself. These images are invading our everyday life; they accumulate in our already information-saturated brains and leech on our thoughts. The images have something ghostly about them, because they pursue us and frighten us, persist, and ultimately survive. How to get rid of them? One has to have already stepped beyond the image in order to fight the definitive forms and to achieve the freedom of a point of view: in this way, looking is not an ability but an experience in which one has to re-form and reconstruct the foundations every moment.

Ultimately there is only one solution to counter this stream of images that is disorganising our heads: stop seeing and start observing: consume Musa Paradisiaca!

Musa Paradisiaca has a several  medical benefits: enhance brain power, packed with potasssium Musa Paradisiaca keeps the mental faculties alert and enhances learning abilities to protect eyesight –  a survey published in the archives of Ophthalmology suggests that consuming three or more servings of Musa Paradisiaca each day helps lower the risk of age related macular degeneration in older adults by 36%, compared to those who consumed less than one portion high in potassium, which helps the body´s circulatory system deliver oxygen to the brain helping maintain regular heartbeat and proper water balance in the body.

Let´s share this experimental moment together.
