Malunggay health benefits
« on: May 31, 2009, 03:42:24 PM »
Due to its high calcium content (four times the calcium in milk),malunggay  helps lactating mothers produce more milk if she eats malunggay-filled soup or salad, or just about any meal with malunggay ingredients. 

Malunggay leaves are loaded with nutrients. Gram for gram, malunggay leaves also contain two times the protein in milk, three times the potassium in bananas, four times the vitamin A in carrots and seven times the vitamin c (oranges ) while the flowers are used to heal inflammation of the tendons and abscesses  Eating malunggay fruits can also lead to higher semen count. 

A 2001 study in India has found that the fresh root of the young tree can be used to treat a fever. Asthmatics are advised to drink the infusion from the roots of the plant.

 It has been recognized and accepted by the US Food and Drug Administration as one of the four dietary antioxidants, the others being vitamin E, beta-carotene and selenium.   

Tender malunggay leaves also reduce phlegm and are administered internally for scurvy and catarrhal conditions. Unripe pods of malunggay can prevent intestinal worms, while the fruit also prevents eye disorders.

Because of its nutritional content, malunggay strengthens the immune system, restores skin condition, controls blood pressure, relieves headaches and migraines, manages the sugar level thereby preventing diabetes, reduces inflammations and arthritis pains, restricts the growth of tumors, and heals ulcers. This information comes from Dr. Kumar Pati, an Indian doctor who is an expert in natural medicine

Findings of a study made in India, states that malunggay contains anti-cancer compounds (phytochemicals) that help stop the growth of cancer cells. Malunggay is said to be effective in treating ovarian cancer, among a host of other diseases like arthritis, anemia, heart complications, kidney problems, scurvy, asthma, and digestive disorders (ulcer, gastritis, diarrhea, colitis, dysentery).
The malunggay plant is also a proven water purifier with its remarkable antiparasitic, antibacterial, and antiviral properties. Its seeds can be used to clean dirty or polluted water.

Hawaii-based farmer Vicky Domingo,  says that all parts of the malunggay tree are usable for nutritional and medicinal purposes — from the roots, trunk, and branches to the leaves, flowers, and seeds. The roots, for instance, can be used to make tea, while the trunk, after it’s scraped and squeezed for its juice, can be used to clean wounds.
