Each pack contains 14 tea bags of Malunggay Herbal Tea. Malunggay is also known as Horseradish.
Malunggay leaves are loaded with nutrients, especially vitamins and minerals. Research study conducted by Dr. Lydia Marero of the Food and Nutrition Research Institute (FNRI) of the Philippines revealed that one hundred grams or one cup of cooked malunggay leaves contains 3.1g protein, 0.6 g fiber, 96mg calcium, 29mg phosphorus, 1.7 mg iron, 2,820 mg beta-carotene, 0.07 mg thiamin, 0.14 mg riboflavin, 1.1 mg niacin and 53 mg ascorbic acid (Vit. C).
Compared to equivalent amounts (in weight) of other foods, malunggay has seven times more Vitamin C than oranges, four times more calcium and two more times more protein than milk, four times more vitamin A than carrots and three times more potassium than bananas.
Malunggay has numerous reported medicinal properties, but only a few have been scientifically proven.
Regular consumption of malunggay can greatly help in preventing micronutirent deficiency, a condition that is still prevalent in many parts of the world.
