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.
Background of the Study
Malunggay grows very wildly in hot tropical climate and it is mainly found in the Philippines. It is best known as an excellent source of nutrition and a natural energy booster. Loaded with nutrients, vitamins and amino acids;it replenishes our body and provides what we need to get through a hectic weekday or active weekend.
Malunggay has leaves and seeds (small); and both of them can produce extracts. Malunggay leaves extract can be use in many ways, it can be use in curing illnesses and even in curing open wounds; or it can be use as a substitute medicine in curing open wounds.
Statement of the Problem
This study aims to determine the feasibility of malunggay leaves extract as a substitute medicine in curing open wounds. Specifically, it anwers the following questions:
1. Is there any feasibility of using fresh malunggay leaves extract as a substitute medicine in curing open wounds?
2. IS there any significant difference of the fresh malunggay leaves extract to the commercial one?
The following guides the researcher to answer the problem stated above:
1. There is a feasibility of using fresh malunggay leaves extract as a substitute medicine in curing open wounds.
2. There is a significant difference/ different of the fresh malunggay leaves extract to the commercial one.
Significance of the Study
This study aims to prove the basic information of the feasibility of using fresh malunggay leaves extract as a substitute medicine in curing open wounds. The researcher brings out the present relevance of our human resources; talent,abilities and potentiality to those who are in doubt; as the commercial one. In this study many people will be benefited especially to those who can't afford expensive medicines in curing open wounds; and this study can also be a big help to those people who has a lot of malunggay plant in their yards. And we must know how to use our nature very well because it is only for our own good.
Scope and Limitation
This study focuses only to the efficiency of the fresh malunggay leaves extract as a substitute medicine in curing open wounds. In this manner, it is cheaper compare to the commercial one.
Definition of Terms
* hectic- wild, confusing
* booster- push up
Moringa oleifera, commonly referred to simply as Moringa, is the most widely cultivated variety of the genus Moringa. It is of the family Moringaceae. It is an exceptionally nutritious vegetable tree with a variety of potential uses. The tree itself is rather slender with drooping branches that grows to approximately 10 m in height; however, it normally is cut back annually to one meter or less, and allowed to regrow, so that pods and leaves remain within arms reach.
