Alugbati and its various uses

Alugbati or vine spinach is usually found in South-East Asia and Africa. It can easily grow up in garden without taking too much care. The general use of this plant is as vegetable and an important ingredient to make different dishes. But it may also use as a decorative plant in some province. It is a great source of antioxidant, vitamins A, B and C, Iron and Calcium. It also contains high roughage and it's very easy to digest.

The whole parts of plant like leaves, stem and seeds can be eaten.


Research reveals that it’s good for health and works as a soft laxative. The roots are quite effective in removing redness of the skin. It has been used in dressing to cover up the swelled area to minimize the puffiness. In case of burn and scald, apply the mixture of leaf pulp and butter on wound. It produces a cooling effect. Liquid of the plant is effective for acne eruptions and also eases inflammation. For child and pregnant lady, the decoction of the leaves make a better laxative.
