PENRO Isabela distributes malunggay seedlings

Ilagan, Isabela (24 June) -- The Department of Environment and Natural Resources of this province led the distribution of 350 Malunggay seedlings to families in Barangay Marana and teachers of the Marana Elementary School in this town last week.

PENRO Forestry Specialist Arnold D. Frogoso said that malunggay can be used to fortify noodles, soup, vitamins and minerals of nutritious vegetables and can also be used for other personal health care.

Marana 2nd Barangay Captain Juanito Prudencio, who is one of the recipients of the distributed malunggay expressed thanks to employees of the DENR for coming up with the seedlings for their backyard that will make available for them a ready food source.

The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) has introduced the idea to distribute Malunggay (A vegetable tree often ignored by people) during the province's Independence Day celebration to boost government's efforts to fight hunger and poverty.

Malunggay, known in England as moringa and in India as sajina, has been found by biochemists and molecular anthropologists as rich in vitamin C, vitamin A, and iron. (PENRO/PIA-Isabela) [top]
