Malunggay is a plant that grows in the tropical climates such as the Philippines, India and Africa. Malunggay is widely used as vegetable ingredient in cooking, as herbal medicine for a number of illness and other practical uses.

By this way I can effectively express or give informations legible to the effects of taking Malunggay as a food supplement because I am also a user of Malunggay product. I have a poor appetite and I crave for a small number of food. I always want to have fun and adventure not bothering of foods I like to buy or eat. My money is just intended with many things that I will be needing for. Also, poor immune system because I am not a fan of vegetables. As I go along with my not satisfying routine, I felt something wrong. I did consult my mother to cure me effectively but on the other hand, she tend to turn red always because of anger. She contact her aunt to deliver some Malunggay capsule for me. I told to myself, “Malunggay? Dahon sang malunggay usapon ko? Weird si mama ah abi ko sa mga utan lang naya gina butang ang malunggay.” That’s the first thought that came up to my mind. But then, I obeyed her. I took three times a day and believe it or not, though I took one capsule, I just want to eat and sleep and eat and sleep. I searched to the web and it is stated here that, Malunggay can cure various illnesses. It’s good for treating headaches, bacterial and fungal skin complaints, and it’s even anti-diabetic and anti-tumor. Malunggay leaves was once considered a “poor man’s vegetables” but now it is known as a “miracle tree” or “nature’s medicine cabinet” by scientists and health care workers from around the world because it is loaded with vitamins and minerals that can be an effective remedy against many kinds of ailments. The malunggay pods are the most valued and widely used part of the plant. Malunggay pods contains essential amino acids, vitamins and other nutrients. Malunggay pods may be eaten raw or may be prepared or cooked. Malunggay pods may be fried and may produce a clear, odorless and sweet oil mostly called – Ben Oil.
Malunggay leaves may be eaten as greens, in salads and as vegetable ingredients for soups and other tropical viands. Malunggayflowers are cooked and eaten either mixed with other foods or fried in batter.
In addition, I interviewed one of the user of malunggay capsule as her maintenance. She’s underweight though she eats a lot of food and vitamins. She said that when her maintenance is on going, she felt a big difference as what she is before. She feel also that she want to eat and eat. Sleep as if there is no tomorrow. She took it for one month and then she stopped due that she is getting fat unknowingly. However, I found this interesting because I come to think of my classmates who are conscious with their weights. What if I will share this interesting food supplement? And a student price, it cost three pesos (3.00) each. When the day that we met, I revealed it to my friends. Almost of them were amused, they come to take a favor. They told me that they will buy and I will do it for them. My friend Leana Jan Candoleta urgently took it same also with my friend Nestle Poras Brizal. After several days I was shocked because when we were ordering our lunch, she takes extra rice. When we are approaching her to go with us and have some fun, she always told us that she’ll better go home and have sleep. How funny is that scene.
In other way being a dealer of malunggay capsule, serves as a big help to her family. She earned not less than ten thousand a month. It saves life and money as well. Myself can testify about it. But I suddenly stopped because in a sense that I’m getting round and round especially my face and it distracts me. I also encountered that I sleep early in the morning, I took two capsules and my stress and feeling of being arrested by pain was lessen. It makes my sleep a very very sweet and satisfying dreams.
