ABSTRACT

This study was conducted to determine if the capsules from malunggay seeds are effective in treating hypertension. And to determine also any significant difference in blood pressure of ten hypertensive respondents before and after treatment using malunggay capsules. In addition, this will also motivate people who have malunggay trees nearby their houses.

Malunggay fruits were collected using the harvesting stick. These were soaked into a pail of clean water for about 10 minutes to remove dirts that sticked on the surface of it. After soaking, the plastic gloves were used then the washed malunggay fruits were placed in the chopping board. After that, the malunggay fruits were sliced vertically using the sharp knife to get its seeds. Lastly, the malunggay seeds were put in the medium-sized container and placed under the sun for about 3-5 days until it dried up.

Malunggay capsules were produced out of dried malunggay seeds. These capsules were used in treating hypertension. And the malunggay capsules are as effective as the commercial capsules in lowering blood pressure.
