Bitter-Leaf and Its Healing Powers

Health Benefit of Bitter Leaf

Bitter Leaf is grown in almost everywhere. Bitter-leaf, scientifical name is (vernonia anmydalina), is a very homely plant. Wherever it grows, it flourishes.

Bitter-leaf is called Onugbu in Igbo land, Ewuro in Yoruba and Shiwaka in Hausa. Perhaps the most distinctive part of the bitter-leaf is bitterness. Every part of the plant is bitter both the leaves, stems, root and bark. The Igbos in Nigeria uses the bitter-leaf mostly as a vegetable, while the Yorubas use it more as a medicine. Bitter herbs help to tone the vital organs of the body, especially the liver and kidney.

Bitter-leaf plant contains vernodalin, venomygdin and Saponin. Bitter leaves should always be taken fresh. Boiling or cooking reduces the potency of most herbs. The Igbos eats a lot of bitter leaf.
