The world have begun to turn backward. People are now practicing the old style of living. When the tablets, vaccines, capsules and syrups are not yet invented, our ancestors were using traditional medicines for treating various diseases. The same trend can be observed nowadays.
Drug companies are joining the bandwagon by creating natural preparations. The perfect example is the Lagundi. The herb is one of the ten herbal medicines approved the Department of Health. It is popular for curing cough. Pascual Laboratories is actively promoting their own version – Ascof Lagundi. Other not so popular brands are also available. Another example is the Ampalaya Plus of Nattural Quality Corporation. Amplaya is known to control blood sugar levels in diabetics.
The tawa tawa herb and guyabano tree are gaining popularity in treating dengue fever and cancer respectively. As of date the two plants are not yet approved by authorities but their effectiveness is backed by lot of testimonies.
Having the two plants nearby when needed is a big relief but a headache for those living in highly urbanized areas. It never grow on cemented land.
It sounds like there’s a demand! It sounds like biznes. Do a little googling and see some folks doing biznes by selling tawa tawa and guyabano capsules.
Fresh lagundi leaves and whole ampalaya are better than capsules. In case not available, the capsule preparation is a good alternative. Popular brands passed the test conducted by FDA Philippines and probably safe. The same apply to tawa tawa and guyabano but they are not yet approved by the institution.
Gel capsules can be bought easily from drug stores. Anyone can make a capsule and sell it. He might do it in unsanitary manner or fill in other leaves of unknown properties. Buy at your own risk!
