Malunggay is a popular galactagogue. Future moms and lactating mothers should eat lots of it to help increase breast milk flow. Though I found it not very effective for my hubby.
Besides of being a galactagogue, this slightly bitter leaves help build a stronger immune system, control blood pressure control and maintain blood sugar level for diabetics. My uncle is mixing the leaves with other veggies in a electric blender. He is taking it every morning as coffee replacement.
It is also beneficial when applied externally. Do you want to have a smooth and soft skin. This tree might be the right thing you are looking for! There is no need spending for commercially prepared cosmetics.
Malunggay is a rich source of vitamin A and C. One tbsp malunggay is equivalent Vitamin C of 7 oranges and has Vitamin A four time more than carrots.
As reported by TV Patrol, malunggay leaves might help in preventing hair loss. The main cause of hair loss is unhealthy scalp. This vegetable leaves help nourish the scalp by donating Vitamin A. Malunggay in combination with other herbs like ginseng, aloe vera and virgin coconut oil is under extensive study by Rica Mallari of Saint Luke’s Medical Center.
The herb combination is a good skin care product. The results of their three months study are very promising.
People who are suffering hair loss significantly have a lower rate of falling hair after three months of continuous usage.
