Andrographis Paniculata (Hempedu Bumi)

In a book “Farmasi Hijau Malaysia”, Hempedu Bumi is recognized and listed as a medicinal herb by the World Health Organization, WHO. In most research, Hempedu Bumi is used as a remedy to help lower the high blood pressure and treat diabetes.
Orthosiphon Stamineus (Misai Kucing)
A medical herb found mainly throughout South East Asia and tropical Australia. It is valued due to its ability to treat a variety of diseases including bladder and kidney. Misai Kucing is believed to have properties such as anti-allergies, anti-hypertensive, anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal and diuretics (substance that promotes the production of urine). Although it does not result in an immediate healing, many can see the effect in just 7 days.
Bitter Gourd (Momordica Charantia)
Bitter gourd is rich in hypoglycaemic compound, which lowers sugar levels in blood.
The fruit contains at least three active substances with anti-diabetic properties, including charantin, which has been confirmed to have a blood glucose-lowering effect, vicine and an insulin-like compound known as polypeptide-p.
These substances either work individually or together to help reduce blood sugar levels.
It is also known that bitter melon contains a lectin that reduces blood glucose concentrations by acting on peripheral tissues and suppressing appetite – similar to the effects of insulin in the brain. This lectin is thought to be a major factor behind the hypoglycaemic effect that develops after eating bitter melon.
