Trying out Malunggay Powder – for breastfeeding and lactation

While strolling at St. Francis Square, I chanced upon a stall selling Malunggay products from Powernut. I was with my aunt and she said these were the products being endorsed by (or owned) by Christine Bersola-Babao on the radio.

I have been looking for malunggay powder in the grocery, especially the malunggay soup mix. I may have had enough of eating malunggay leaves from our backyard and sometimes, I have a hard time digesting them. Also, I only have one recipe for malunggay leaves so I thought that having it in powdered form is a great solution to continue my intake.

Aside from malunggay powder, the stall sold malunggay cookies, chips, tea, and capsules. What I will do with the malunggay powder is to make it a refreshing drink. The packet (ziploc) has instructions on how to add it to your dishes, make tea from it, or make a cold malunggay drink.

One thing worries me though as the ziplock pack is not sealed so that it won’t be tampered or re-used to prevent fakers or bootleg versions of this product that might be dangerous to mommies. However, their website lists the branches where you can securely buy malunggay products :) I just hope the one I got is the original thing *fingers crossed*

    hi, you surely got the original one. :) im the owner of the powder you are referring too. We have double sealing for the ziplock. also, don't transfer it, the reason why its in a foil so its not exposed to light to diminish the nutritional content. Zonito Torrevillas

  • Thank you Zonito! :)

    Let me know if you have new products, lots of moms are really interested ^^
