Researcher: Princess Nazarene A. Soriano

Institution: Benigno S. Aquino National High School

ABSTRACT

This study was conducted by a researcher to make alternative tea to reduce menstrual cramps out of papaya leaves. The research materials were easily gathered due to the abundance of materials. The papaya leaves were dried. Then, the papaya leaves were pounded and were put in the tea bag.

The study aims to help women to lessen their problem which is menstrual cramps. Since papaya leaves are organic, it is safer to use compared to the commercial ones.

There are different attributes that were tested for the comparison between the commercial and alternative tea. First, their effectiveness was tested. The commercial has a mean of 5, while the alternative tea has 3.4. The second attribute tested was the appearance. The mean score of the commercial tea is 2.3 and the alternative tea is 2.4. The third attribute tested was the taste. The mean score of the commercial tea is 3, and the alternative tea is 4.4. And the last attribute is general acceptability. The score of the alternative tea is 3.5, and the commercial is 4.6.

The alternative tea for menstrual cramps was tested effective and feasible and can be a possible substitute to that of the commercial tea.
