Finally we just managed to get some cuttings of Pokok Sambung Nyawa (Gynura procumbens Merr) which is a herb native of South East Asia and is herbaceous climber of forest margins and thickets. The leaves serve in Malay culture as a flavoring for food, and also widely used for treatment of: kidney diseases, rashes, throat infection, high fever and as a antihypertensive agent. It has been reported that an ethanolic extract of this herb significantly reduces serum cholesterol and triglyceride levels of diabetic rats. There have also been studies done here.

It supposedly can be used to stop bleeding, overcome menstrual cycle problems and  improves the kidney function.As a matter of interest we found the leaves eaten raw taste pretty good.

    We are slowly expanding our local herb and medicinal plant collection Philip and will be honored if we could exchange our herb list to compare what we have. Maybe an exchange would be a good idea to expand the individual collection?
