Why do we use this product?
- Alugbati (Malabar Spinach) is commonly grown for its young shoots which make an excellent succulent, slightly mucilaginous vegetable, used as a pot herb in stews or soups, consumed boiled, fried in oil or sometimes as green salad. Its fruits seem to have been earlier used for dyeing purposes in China. The red fruit juice can be used as ink, cosmetic and for coloring foods. The young leaves can be used as laxative, the pulped leaves to poultice sores, red fruit juice as eye drops to treat conjunctivitis and the roots as rubefacient.
- Like spinach and other leafy greens, it's rich in vitamins, minerals, dietary fiber and phytochemicals.
- Alugbati also boasts large amounts of calcium, magnesium, zinc, iron and B-complex vitamins. It's an excellent source of phytonutrients that scavenge oxidative damage and promote overall health. Its fresh leaves are rich in potent antioxidants like zeaxanthin, lutein and beta carotene
