Banaba Tea

Drinking tea is one of my personal health habits and I found this banaba tea as a medicinal drink that can aid to wellness. Banaba are grown for its flowers and are also found in the wild in tropical countries. There are dried banaba leaves and fruits sold in some local markets in the Philippines but there are now commercially prepared formulations in the form of tablets, capsules, extracts, powder and tea. These are available in most health stores and drug stores. You can use one tea bag and pour in hot water. Some health benefits of banaba include :
  • blood pressure control ,
  • kidney disorders,
  • urinary dysfunctions (helps ease urination) ,
  • controls the cholesterol levels,
  • treatment of diarrhea,
  • facilitates bowel movement
  • treatment of fevers and others.
