We all know the power of Malunggay, as a matter of fact, it’s been called “the wonder gulay.” I recently discovered Atienza Naturale Malunggay Capsule that offers the healthy benefits of this vegetable. That’s very convenient because with just one capsule, you get the recommended dose that you can’t get with just one eating.
Apparently, Popeye should have been eating Malunggay instead of Spinach. That’s because this vegetable has more iron than The Sailor Man’s favorite. If you need more calcium, consuming more of this veggie is recommended because it has more calcium than milk. Aside from these, Malunggay has more Vitamin A than Carrots, more Vitamin C than Oranges and more Potassium than Bananas. These were the findings by Tree for Life International.
But wait, there’s more! Malunggay leaves are great sources of Vitamin A, B-Vitamins and minerals such as calcium and iron. The leaves are also rich in sulfur-containing amino acids methionine and cystine.
Due to its high content of potent antioxidants Vitamins A, C, and E, Malunggay is an outstanding neutralizer of unstable free-radicals that can react with and damage other molecules. Antioxidants diminish wrinkles and fine lines associated with aging. They may also prevent the onset of various chronic disorders like arthritis, cancer and heart and kidney diseases.
Malunggay is widely considered a “wonder vegetable” because of its immense nutritional value. It helps promote good eyesight and digestion. It may also provide help in cases of scurvy, asthma, earache and headaches.
And due to its exceptional calcium content, it is consumed by lactating mothers to produce more milk to feed their babies. That’s why Malunggay is referred to as “Mother’s Best Friend”.
Malunggay is indeed a “Wonder Gulay” but I have to admit that I don’t get to enjoy it as often as I want. It’s great news that now I can get all these health-giving benefits of Malunggay without the hassle of gathering leaves and preparing dishes.
Atienza Naturale to the Rescue
Atienza Naturale brings the power of Malunggay in a capsule. Each 500mg Atienza Naturale Malunggay capsule is equivalent to two-and-a-half cup of pure and fresh Malunggay. I can’t have all that in one sitting. Taking one each day means I get all the nutrients and minerals – Vitamins, Iron, Calcium and Antioxidants – that will give my body the health boost and protection needed.
TV host Kuya Kim Atienza and his sister, Angela Lei Atienza, are some of the people behind Atienza Naturale. During the bloggers’ event, we were not able to meet Kuya Kim who also serves as the endorser of the product, but his sister was present and talked about the company and their products. She shared that they were 100% behind the product as she noted that Malunggay was one of the things that aided her brother’s recovery when Kuya Kim got sick in 2010-2014.
Also present during the Atienza Naturale bloggers event is Dr Rainier Mozo who conducted a study on the effect of Malunggay capsules to diabetic patients. During the 12-week study, 52 selected patients diagnosed with diabetes Type I or II went under close supervision for regular intake of capsules containing Malunggay leaves.
Dr. Mozo’s study which was reviewed by Philippine Internal Medicine Journal was partly funded by the Atienza Naturale Malunggay Capsule, and the Philippine College of Physicians-Manila Chapter. Atienza Naturale provided the Malunggay capsules which was taken by all 52 patients thrice a day for three weeks.
The findings after the study were positive, shared Dr. Mozo. From having high blood sugar which also poses a high risk of stroke and heart attack, the patients blood sugar level went down at moderate risk level. One of my concerns is that taking medicines can affect our stomach, so I asked how safe is Atienza Naturale Malunggay Capsule, thinking that I have a case of ulcer. He shared that they didn’t see event a hint of toxicity to the patients.
This is really good news for everyone, not just to those who are suffering from diabetes, but also for every Filipino. We all need to live a healthy life and every step that can help us achieve a healthy body is a step to victory. And unlike other health supplements where you have to become a member or go through a system of some sorts, the product is available in all Mercury Drug Store and leading drugstores nationwide. Atienza Naturale Malunggay Capsule is very accessible to everyone, and that’s even better than going to the market to buy Malunggay. 🙂
