The power of malunggay: the nutrients you get from the green wonder vegetable

If you’re not fond of eating your greens, especially Malunggay – then Dr. Willie Ong is here to tell you why you should consider eating lots of it!

Studies have shown that Malunggay leaves may be loaded with calcium and iron. Calcium is needed to make sure that our bones are strong and thus preventing bone-related diseases like osteoporosis. If you’re anemic, you’re going to need a supply of iron. Malunggay is packed with just the amount of iron your body needs to maintain your blood.

That’s not all though! Dr. Willie Ong says that the leaves are full of Protein, Potassium, Vitamin A, and even Vitamin C. Commonly known as antioxidants, they are just what you need to relieve your body from all that stress from work and/or play and to make yourself look and feel younger.


Compared to other fruits and vegetable, the Malunggay has higher levels of vitamins. A super vegetable indeed, the only thing you’re going to worry about is how to get your kids to eat them. Of course, that’s all up to your kitchen skills and their tastebuds.

Oh, It isn’t just the leaves that have health benefits! Dr. Willie Ong says that even the fruit of the Malunggay is packing with carbohydrates, calcium, iron, and phosphorus.


Because of these properties, it is highly recommended to people who are thin and malnourished. To top it all off, Malunggay is quite cheap and available which makes it an ingredient that’s frequently used by the government and volunteer groups in the country.
