Kamunggay: Miracle Vegetable


By Dr. Lydia M. Marero
Food and Nutrition Research Institute

Malunggay, known scientifically as Moringa oleifera Lamk, is one of the world's most useful plants. It is used as food, effective flocculant or water treatment, antibiotic, source of oil, and coagulant for turbid waters.

It is also called “mother's best friend”, and “miracle vegetable” by many who know malunggay's beneficial uses. It is cultivated in all countries of the tropics. It is easy to plant and is available year-round.

Malunggay's image was even used as the official logo of the Food and Nutrition Research Institute, an agency of the Department of Science and Technology.

One hundred grams or 1 cup of cooked malunggay leaves contain 3.1 g. protein, 0.6 g. fiber, 96 mg calcium, 29 mg phosphorus, 1.7 mg iron, 2,820 mg ß-carotene, 0.07 mg thiamin, 0.14 mg riboflavin, 1.1 mg niacin, and 53 mg ascorbic acid or vitamin C. The antioxidant activity of malunggay is about 71%, with µ-tocopherol (vitamin E) equivalent of 45.

Malunggay leaves are an excellent source of vitamin A and B, and minerals such as calcium and iron. It is even an excellent source of protein, being higher than the amino acid pattern of Food and Agriculture Organization-reference protein, yet contains very low fat and carbohydrates. The leaves are incomparable as a source of the sulfur-containing amino acids methionine and cystine, often the natural minerals humans lack.

Due to its high vitamins A, C, and E, which are very potent antioxidants, malunggay is a very good quencher of unstable free radicals that can react with and damage molecules that cause aging. Antioxidants reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. They also prevent the onset of various chronic diseases like arthritis, cancer, and heart and kidney diseases.

Malunggay contains the phytochemical niaziminin, which is found to have molecular components that can prevent the development of cancer cells (Faizi et al., 1992) and correlated with inhibitory ability against superoxide generation. The first naturally-occuring thiocarbamates, novel hypotensive agents niazinin A, niazinin B, niazimicin and niaziminin A and B were isolated from malunggay.

Malunggay is called “miracle vegetable” because it is not just a food, it is also a medicine. It may therefore be a “functional food”. Malunggay promotes good eyesight, digestion, facilitates bowel movement, and is a cure for stomach ache.

It is also used to cleanse wounds and ulcers. It helps alleviate scurvy, asthma, earache, and headaches. For its high calcium content, lactating mothers are advised to eat malunggay leaves to produce more milk.

Malunggay is usually cooked with chicken as tinola, or with fish and other vegetables, mongo soup dishes, and blanched as salads.

How To Stop A Headache Before It Starts


1st of 8 Drug-Free Tips
Snoozing in for more than an hour can disrupt your sleep-wake cycle, and anything that tinkers with your body’s natural rhythms may prime you for pain, says Lisa Mannix, M.D., a spokeswoman for the National Headache Foundation in Chicago. Commit to waking up (and going to bed) at the same time every day — yes, that includes weekends, too. More Tips

Math Tricks

1. The 11 Times Trick

We all know the trick when multiplying by ten - add 0 to the end of the number, but did you know there is an equally easy trick for multiplying a two digit number by 11? This is it:

Take the original number and imagine a space between the two digits (in this example we will use 52:

5_2

Now add the two numbers together and put them in the middle:

5_(5+2)_2

That is it - you have the answer: 572.

If the numbers in the middle add up to a 2 digit number, just insert the second number and add 1 to the first:

9_(9+9)_9

(9+1)_8_9

10_8_9

1089 - It works every time.

Kiko Is Tops But TU Dominates Cebu

While overtaken by the Genuine Opposition (GO) in other provinces, Team Unity (TU) has expectedly overshadowed GO in the senatorial race in the province of Cebu and Cebu City, both known bailiwicks of the Arroyo administration.

TU bagged seven slots in the Magic 12 against GO’s four when the Commission on Elections (COMELEC) canvassed on Saturday the certificates of canvass (COCs) from these areas.

But it was independent candidate Francis Pangilinan who topped the race. He was followed by TU’s Joker Arroyo, Prospero Pichay, Edgardo Angara, Michael Defensor and Juan Miguel Zubiri.

GO’s Manny Villar ranked seventh, followed by TU’s Ralph Recto while GO’s Loren Legarda, Francis Escudero and Benigno Simeon Aquino III followed. TU’s Cesar Montano placed 12th.

Ironically, GO’s John Osmeña, a Cebuano, landed only on 15th place.

May 14 Elections' Quick Counts

Please click this link to the ABS-CBN/STI's and Namfrel's quick counts.

ABS-CBN & Pulse Asia's Exit Polls


Six Genuine Opposition candidates, four Team Unity bets and two independents are poised to win the top 12 slots in the Senate race, results of the 2007 ABS-CBN/Pulse Asia nationwide exit poll revealed Tuesday.

GO candidate Loren Legarda topped the exit poll with 58.5 percent of votes, followed by Francis "Chiz" Escudero (53.3%), Manuel Villar (49.8%) and Panfilo Lacson (46.4%).

Independent candidate Francis “Kiko” Pangilinan placed fifth in the exit poll with 44.6 percent of votes, followed by GO's Benigno "Noynoy" Aquino III (42.6%), Team Unity's Edgardo Angara (41.1%) and Joker Arroyo (36.8%) and GO's Antonio Trillanes IV (35.4%).

TU's Juan Miguel Zubiri placed 10th in the exit poll with 34.9 percent of votes. Independent candidate Gregorio "Gringo" Honasan (34.6%) and TU's Ralph Recto (34.3%) rounded out the last two slots.

Pulse Asia said there is a statistical chance that the last four candidates on the list could be replaced by other senatorial bets.

GO's Alan Peter Cayetano placed 13th on the list with 31 percent of votes, followed by TU's Prospero Pichay Jr. (30.4%), GO's Aquilino "Koko" Pimentel III (28.5%) and Sonia Roco (28.4%) and TU's Michael Defensor (28.2%) and Vicente "Tito" Sotto III (26.2%).

Chiz Is Top Senatoriable

Senatorial candidate Francis "Chiz" Escudero was still leading fellow bets from the Genuine Opposition and the administration Team Unity as the partial and unofficial ABS-CBN/STI media count continued Tuesday.

As of 2:43 a.m., Escudero was on top with 1,312,743 votes, followed by Loren Legarda with 1,249,364. Panfilo "Ping" Lacson had 1,154,180; Benigno "Noynoy" Aquino III, 1,119,293; and Manuel "Manny" Villar Jr., 1,083,538.

Liberal Party bet Francis "Kiko" Pangilinan had 1,072,721 while GO's Alan Peter Cayetano came up with 935,440 votes, followed by TU's Joker Arroyo (860,447) and Antonio Trillanes IV (850,318).

The remaining slots in the "Magic 12" were filled up by independent candidate Gregorio Honasan (834,971); TU's Edgardo Angara (822,311); and GO's Aquilino "Koko" Pimentel III (820,102).

Juan Miguel Zubiri of Team Unity was at 13th spot with 747,859; followed by Ralph Recto (730,137); and GO's Sonia Roco with 669,691.

ABS-CBN Broadcasting Corporation is leading two separate parallel counts for the May 14 polls that will give audiences a snapshot of how 45.5 million registered Filipino voters chose their leaders.

Bong Osorio, ABS-CBN head of corporate communications, identified the two counts as the "ABS-CBN & STI Media Count" and the "ABS-CBN & Pulse Asia Exit Poll," which can help determine if electoral fraud took place by looking at the figures.

"The media count will systematize ABS-CBN’s election coverage and give on-air figures immediately to the people," said Osorio.

Osorio said the media count will cover more areas and increase its statistical base as compared to 2004. The ABS-CBN & STI Media Count aims to count about 10 percent of the actual votes and will stop after either 24 hours or the target 10 percent is reached.

Apart from the media count, ABS-CBN has partnered with Pulse Asia for the conduct of an exit poll that will entail a random sample of about 10,620 voters nationwide.

RP Unites For Pacman


The Philippines rejoiced Sunday at the victory of boxing superstar Manny Pacquiao over his Mexican opponent in Texas, with even political rivals promising him a "hero's welcome" upon his return.

The fight was aired live on giant television screens in various parts of the country, including the southern city of General Santos where Pacquiao is using his boxing fame to run for a congressional seat.

Pacman Wins Again!


Manny Pacquiao unleashed a lethal right-left combination punch to knock out the erstwhile unbeaten Jorge Solis of Mexico in Round 8 and defend his World Boxing Council International superfeatherweight crown at the Aladome, San Antonio, Texas.
He stepped up his aggressive attack in the seventh and sent his Mexican opponent down at 1:16 in the eighth, when referee Vic Drakulich counted Solis out.
