The Malunggay leaves are highly nutritious, being a significant source of Vitambeta-carotein C, protein, iron and potassium. The leaves are cooked and used like spinach. In addition to being used fresh as a substitute for spinach, its leaves are commonly dried and crushed into a powder, and used in soups and sauces. Ointment is one of the medicine that can cure wounds.
The procedures are all the materials will be gathered. Leaves will be pounded .Pounded leaves of Malunggay will be extracted. The extract will be boiled. Boiled extract will then be cooled. The boiled extract will be put in a sterilized small bottle/container for storage /preservation. The product will then be applied to an open wound with the use of cotton.
I therefore conclude that the malunggay leaves can be a substitute medicine in curing open wounds but its odor matters.
I, the researcher extend my gratitude to my parents for the support in making this, and to my classmates for giving me the courage in pursuing this study.
And most especially to our Almighty God for giving me the wisdom in making this study possible.
