|Bitter-leaf ('Onugbu' by Igbos of Nigeria )|
Bitter-leaf can be very helpful in maintaining the optimum function of the liver to release bile acid every time people eat fatty foods. Another major function of the liver is the production of glycogen. Glycogen is stored energy that is released in times of low level of glucose especially for people who are fasting.
The liver should be well taken care of by using bitter-leaf. Once the liver has been damaged it can't be restored to its normal function. People with liver problems can drink a glass of boiled bitter leaves water every day.
Another very vital organ inside the body is the kidney. Kidney helps in the excretion of waste products inside the body. If the normal function of the kidney breaks down there will be a huge problem inside the body.
Diabetic patients can also use bitter-leaf as medication to prevent high sugar level in the blood. It will not only lower the sugar level in the blood but also repair impaired pancreas. Pancreas is the organ responsible for the production of insulin for glucose to reach each cell for eventual use by the body as energy. Impaired pancreas does not release the right amount of insulin to maintain the right sugar level in the blood. Bitter-leaf is a real wonder of nature.
