Healthy Options from the Backyard.

Many Filipino households have malunggay growing in their backyards. However, not every one may be aware of the health benefits this miracle vegetable can bring. However, cooking malunggay leaves tends to lessen it's potency. A solution: CHRIMI Malunggay Products.

I may not be the most healthy eater, but given my fervent desire (but admittedly lack of effort) to lose weight, I didn't hesitate to sign up for a health and wellness event featuring the health benefits of the moringa or malunggay plant. I initially thought products like this would be limited to nutritional supplements but I was amazed at how many products the company has been able to create with malunggay. Products now available include the following: coffee, hot choco, dalandan orange juice, and malunggay health soup.

To be honest, I was skeptical about how something like this would taste but I was surprised that the coffee and choco drinks were quite yummy. I didn't really like the soup much, but I think if used as a base for a pasta sauce, it would make a tasty sauce.

Aside from food items, CHRIMI also offers malunggay supplements, whitening soap and body lotion. Amazing!

Other health benefits of malunggay include the following:
7 times the vitamin C in oranges
4 times the calcium in milk
4 times the vitamin A in carrots
3 times the potassium in Bananas
2 times the protein in Yogurt
Lowers cholesterol
Balances metabolism
Memory enhancer
Strengthens the body's immune system
Improves mental alertness
Enhances nerve tissues

During the launch, the founder of the product explained to us that CHRIMI malunggay products are more than just a business venture, but a mission. I am impressed at how thier operations go beyond providing a means for personal wealth, but that they aim to provide jobs and opportunities for people and industries around them. As their advocacy goes, we have a bountiful nation, why leave the Philippines?
