Noni is a dramatically foliaged evergreen shrub or small tree with a conical crown; it usually grows 2 – 6 metres tall, occasionally to 10 metres. The bole can be 12cm in diameter. Noni has long had a reputation for its healing qualities. The unripe fruit is used in Indian cooking in sambals and curries. Young leaves and blanched shoots – raw or steamed, added to curries etc. They contain 4.5 – 6% protein. The leaves are a rich source of vitamin A. Most parts of noni have been widely used medicinally since ancient times. The fruit contains rancid smelling capric acid and unpleasant tasting caprylic acid. It is thought that antibiotically active compounds are present.

  • Cloves-150g 28.00 Sold By: GMF Store

    The clove tree is monoecious, flowers are hermaphrodite and self-pollinating. The tree matures between 8-10 years after planting. Clove trees live for more than 100 years, the oldest tree recorded is aged 375 years in Indonesia. Generally, it takes 20-30 years for clove to attain full bearing.  The best quality cloves for use as a spice are grown in the wetter climates where annual rainfall is in excess of 1,500mm and usually in the range 3,000 – 4,000mm

    Cloves, and the essential oil contained in them, are often used medicinally. A spicy, warming, stimulant herb, it is strongly antiseptic, relieves pain, controls nausea and vomiting, improves digestion, protects against intestinal parasites, and causes uterine contractions. Cloves are taken internally as a tea in the treatment of internal parasites, stomach upsets, chills, and impotence. The flower buds are chewed to freshen the breath or ease the pain of toothache.

    The essential oil is applied externally in the treatment of toothache, headache, cold, arthritis, and rheumatism. It is also useful for treating ulcers, bruises, burns, bronchitis, asthma, minor infections, and colic. It is sometimes used to ease nausea. Two little-known compounds in clove oil have shown ‘strong activity’ against bacteria associated with plaque formation and gum disease. Clove oil is very potent and can cause gum irritation, it is advisable to dilute it with equal amounts of vegetable oil. For infants and even milder dilution is required. Use should be avoided during pregnancy, or if with sensitive skin

    Neem leaf-500g 35.00 Sold By: GMF Store

    Neem extracts have shown potential hypoglycaemic properties. Oral administration of the leaf
    extracts reduced blood sugar levels in normal and streptozocin-induced of diabetic models, with the
    hypoglycaemic effect comparable to glibenclamide (Khosla et al., 2000). The leaf extract blocked
    the effects of adrenaline on glucose metabolism and reduced peripheral glucose utilization in
    diabetic and normal rats (Chattopadhyay, 1996).

    The anti-inflammatory properties of the plant have also been demonstrated in various studies. The water-soluble part of the alcoholic leaf extract showed anti-inflammatory activity in the cotton pellet granuloma assay in vivo (Chattopadhway, 1998). Neem extracts have shown a dose-dependent anti-gastric ulcer activity in stressed rats. The extracts also caused a decrease in ethanol-induced gastric mucosal damage, an increase in the amount of adherent gastric mucus in stressed animals, and showed significant anti-histaminic potential (Garg et al., 1993). Bandyopadhyay et al (2002) have investigated the gastroprotective properties of the stem bark extract of A. indica. The gastroprotective effect was attributed to the ability to inhibit acid secretion via blockage of H+/K+-ATPase activity as well as the inhibition of oxidative damage of the gastric mucosa by blocking lipid peroxidation and scavenging endogenous hydroxyl radicals.

    Leaf extracts of A. indica exhibited significant immune-stimulating effects in vivo (Ray et al, 1996). A. indica potentiated the antibody titres following typhoid H. antigen immunization and induced delayed hypersensitivity following administration of tuberculin and DNCB to animals. In human trials, extracts stimulated humoral immunity by increasing antibody levels and cell-mediated immunity by increasing total lymphocyte and T-cell count in 21 days (Ansari et al., 1997). Aqueous leaf extract was found to lower raised levels of serum liver enzymes and paracetamol-induced liver necrosis (Bhanwra et al., 2000).
