Cat's whiskers

Have you heard of 'misai kucing' (direct translation: cat's whisker)? It is a type of herb. It is also known as Java tea.


So it is not whiskers belong to real cat. just a plant.

As you can read it is a herb that is beneficial to our body. 

'It is trusted for many centuries for treating ailments of the kidney, bladder stone, urinary tract infection, liver and bladder problems, diabetes, rheumatism and gout. And, it is also used to reduce cholesterol and blood pressure. It is believed to have antiallergic, antihypertensive, anti-inflammatory and diuretic properties. Furthermore, it is used as a remedy for arteriosclerosis (capillary and circulatory disorders), kidney stones, diabetes and nephritis.'

Last month, my mum went for blood and urine tests. The test turned out that level of glucose is high. After drinking misai kucing for 2 weeks, my mum went for another test. The level of glucose greatly reduced to normal level.
After I drank it, I noticed that the perimeter of my tummy also reduced. Not bad.

[SK], it is good for you.
