5. KHASIAT DAUN PEGAGA


HAVE YOU EVER SEEN “PEGAGA” LEAVES.... ???

WHAT IS SO SPECIAL ABOUT “ PEGAGA” LEAVES

Pegaga or as its called in English Indian Pennywort grows in relatively moist soil. Pegaga leaves are fragrant and Malaysian consume these leaves as an appetizer together with their meal as with all ulam with sambal belacan.
It originated from India but can easily be found anyway in South East Asia. Besides eating with rice, some people in Malaysia drink the juice as a brain tonic to increase the brain power.
To make it as a drink is easy. Just blend the leaves with a little water and strain out the juice in a glass. Add a little sugar if you like but I like mine without.

Health Benefits
Elders have said that pegaga rebuilds the energy, helps to combat stress and increase mental power. Pegaga also is said to be able to reduce high blood pressure, slow down ageing process, and help the body protect itself against toxins.
World Health Organization (WHO) has recognized pegaga as a herb to generate intelligence to think, especially among children. Actually nutritional pegaga has long been recognized throughout Asia. As 'brain food generates intelligence', this ulam is very effective for improving mental functions such as improving memory and concentration of mind.
The practice of drinking juice pegaga very effective to help the troubled sleep, treat skin irritation and high blood pressure.
