Sambong helps in treating high blood pressure
When the extract of Sambong is injected, blood vessels become “loosened” or they expand. This significantly helps in relieving hypertension. Do not inject Sambong into your bloodstream. Always consult your doctor.
Sambong promotes diuresis
Diuresis means increased urination; this happens when our kidneys filter large volumes of fluid. While it sounds bothersome, diuresis helps in the removal of toxins.
Sambong reduces edema
Edema, or commonly called “manas,” happens when our tissues or cavities retain fluids, resulting in swelling. The frequent urination caused by Sambong helps to release those extra fluids, thus relieving the edema.
Sambong brings down fever
Another one of the unique Sambong is its ability to address high fever. Because Sambong has menthol, it helps cool down your body temperature.
Sambong aids in treating cough and cold
This unique medicinal plant has expectorant properties, one of the prized Sambong benefits. This means that it can help remove unwanted phlegm that accumulates in our respiratory tracts.
