Here comes Lagundi (Taken from New Marketlink Pharmaceutical Corporation’s brochure about Lagundex:The medicinal wonders of lagundi — Most pharmacies nowadays sell alternative medicines, many of which are widely advertised but offer no clear therapeutic value. Thankfully, medicines made from lagundi leaves are the exact opposite.A wild shrub that grows in the Philippines, lagundi (Vitex negundo) is easily recognizable because of its leaf, which is made up of five smaller leaflets. It has been effectively used as a herbal medicine in treating cough and colds and in relieving asthma, rheumatism and even skin diseases like boils.Lagundi has been found to have phytochemical properties that make it an anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial and analgesic agent that helps in respiratory disorders.During asthma attacks, lagundi can prevent the body’s production of leukotrienes, a group of chemicals that accompanies inflammation. It also contains Chrysoplenol D, a substance that has anti-histamine and muscle relaxant properties which makes lagundi effective against coughs, colds, fever and asthma.Proof of lagundi’s efficacy is its inclusion in the Department of Health’s list of ten medicinal plants with clinically proven medicinal values.The traditional way of preparing a lagundi medicinal drink is still widely used. This method involves picking washing, boiling, steeping and straining the relevant parts of the plant like the leaves, roots, flowers and seeds.But those who don’t want the hassle of searching grasslands and watercourses for shrubs to be used in their own lagundi concoction may opt for tablets and syrups, which are equally effective. One of the most potent lagundi-based medicines is Lagundex.
Lagundex is made from the finest lagundi leaves in the country, harvested from the nutrient-rich soil of Palawan. A clinical study shows that fine lagundi leaves are more potent in treating cough, colds and even mild asthma.1
