Cabuyao Mayor Mel Gecolea touts the benefits of malunggay tea
One of the secrets of Cabuyao Mayor Mel Gecolea’s health is the mighty malunggay.
In a Facebook post, Gecolea invited his friends and followers to try malunggay tea, which he drinks every morning.
All they have to do is to put malunggay leaves in water and bring this to a boil, he said.
He said malunggay has a lot of benefits, including building strong bones because it is rich in calcium and potassium.
It also has vitamin C which protects against colds.
It is also beneficial for those with diabetes and liver and kidney problems, helps lactating mothers produce more milk, and helps those with hormonal imbalance, he said
Drinking malunggay tea would be helpful, especially during this pandemic, he said.
But he’s also curious to learn what kind of tea other people drink, he added.
What’s the tea?
