Malunggay Leaves in Los Banos

Got this new Horseradish tree leaves screensaver just this previous long weekend from the yard of my apartment in Los Baños, Laguna.

It is known as Malunggay in Tagalog, Marunggay in Ilocano, Kamunggay in Visayan, Malungge in Kapampangan, and Kalunggay in Bikol Language.

Recently did I know that Senator Loren Legarda campaigned the popularization of Moringa oleifera in 2007. Weight per weight, the Bureau of Plant and Industry stated that
Moringa leaves have the calcium equivalent of 4 glasses of milk,
the vitamin C content of 7 oranges,
potassium of 3 bananas,
3 times the iron of spinach,
4 times the amount of vitamin A in carrot, and
2 times the protein in milk.
