Malunggay: A Mother’s Best Source of Nutritional Needs

MALUNGAY+LEAVES

Lactating mothers should get the proper nutrition they need, especially now that they are feeding their baby. One source of it is Malunggay leaves or pods. A good source of vitamins, minerals, proteins, carotenoids and carbohydrates. This helps increase your milk supply and at the same time enrich the quality of milk generated.

When I gave birth to my daughter, I was told to eat malunggay everyday for me to have enough breast milk supply. At first, the clinic gave me Moringga capsules that I should take once a day. But these previous weeks, I opted for a natural method. 

My aunt has malunggay trees in her backyard so I just have to cut a few leaves to cook. What I always do, and you can as well, is clean the leaves, then simmer it for at least a minute or two. That’s it! You can even make this as a substitute for water. This is the water I use when I prepared my chocolate drink. Believe me, it does not affect the taste. :)

Well, to give you the benefits of malunggay, here’s an infographic you can take a look at:
