The super “super food”

The term “super foods” has been going around these days, referring to food items jam packed with nutrients such as chia seeds or goji berries. There is a super food that has been around for a long time now, and the even better news is that it is affordable and very accessible.

Presenting malunggay leaves!

If you grew up in a traditional Filipino household, surely malunggay leaves are always in your kitchen –in viands such as tinola or ginisang munggo, even the Ilokano bulanglang or the Ilonggo laswa. Now there are even malunggay smoothies, malunggay pan de sal, malunggay omelet and other twists to the classic food items.

Why are more and more people excited to put malunggay in their food?

“Because it contains 13 different essential vitamins and 16 minerals. It has seven times more Vitamin C than oranges, four times more Vitamin A than carrots, four times more calcium than milk, three times more potassium than bananas, three times more iron than spinach, three times more Vitamin E than almonds, and two times more protein than yogurt,” says Andy Lugtu, founder of Manila Nature’s Link Corp., creator of the Malungai LifeOil capsules.

Malungai LifeOil capsules give complete malunggay nutrition, as it is the only oil-form malunggay food supplement in the market. It is made from pure malunggay leaves and seeds oil extract, and contains active chlorophyll, an essential nutrient we get from eating fresh, green leafy vegetables. Malunggay oil is a long-chain fatty acid that is filled with omega-3, which is not found in powder-filled capsules made from semi-dried malunggay leaves.

Malungai LifeOil capsules are available in leading drug stores nationwide.
