This plant contains natural and powerful painkillers
LONDON: Experts have discovered ingredients in a popular medicinal plant for years that make it the best and most powerful painkiller. Even its efficacy is similar to ibuprofen, the best anti-inflammatory and painkiller.
Metallifi is a plant commonly found in Samoa, a small remote country, and has been used in traditional medicine for hundreds of years. The biological name of this plant is Psychotria ansuilerum, the leaves of which have been used for grinding till now. It relieves skin infections, inflammation, fever and pain.
Molemo Samasoni, a scientist from Samoa, has a PhD on the plant. He has researched it in many ways in his long study. The biggest feature is that it removes excess steel from the body. When its components are injected into living cells, it strengthens immune cells and increases the secretion of a helpful chemical called cytokines.
After ten years of research, there is a consensus on the components that reduce internal inflammation. But according to scientists, the plant can also help treat other diseases. It is said that excessive accumulation of iron in the brain causes Alzheimer’s and other diseases, and by pulling iron, this plant can be useful in a terrible disease like Alzheimer’s.
Now another scientist, Dr. Andrew Monkaski, has made a genetic observation of the compound in the plant. The compound is known to act on genes associated with obesity, diabetes and pre-existing diseases. There are also two active biological ingredients that can reduce inflammation and protect the brain. That is why more research is needed.
