Muscovado is a type of partially refined to unrefined brown sugar with a strong molasses content and flavor. Muscovado is very dark brown, slightly coarser and stickier than most brown sugars and takes its flavor and color from its source – sugarcane juice. It is technically considered either a non-centrifugal cane sugar or a centrifuged, partially refined sugar. It offers good resistance to high temperatures and has a reasonably long shelf life. It is commonly used in baking recipes and making rum. Muscovado sugar can be used in most recipes where brown sugar is called for, by slightly reducing the liquid content of the recipe.
Muscovado sugar has 11 calories/ 4 grams (approx. 1 tsp). When produced under regulated conditions, it is nutritionally richer than other brown sugars or refined sugar, and retains most of the natural minerals inherent in sugarcane juice, as shown in this chart:
Mineral content of muscovado sugar (per 100 g):
- Total mineral salts 740 mg max.
- Phosphorus (P) 3.9 mg max.
- Calcium (Ca) 85 mg max.
- Magnesium (Mg) 23 mg max.
- Potassium (K) 100 mg max.
- Iron (Fe) 1.3 mg max.
This unrefined sugar can be used in coffee and other beverages, and was one of the most prominent export commodities of the Philippines, especially from the Negros region from the 19th century until the late 1970s. The production of muscovado sugar in the Philippines, Barbados, and elsewhere had experienced a long period of decline when large mills took over sugar production from small farmers with small mills. However with the rapidly increasing consumer interest in healthy and organic foods interest in muscovado sugar has been revived, creating a new market for muscovado sugar production from small mills.
Clinical studies have substantiated that curcumin also exerts very powerful antioxidant effects. It is able to neutralize free radicals (chemicals that can travel through the body and cause great amounts of damage to healthy cells and cell membranes) present in many diseases, such as arthritis, where they are responsible for the painful joint inflammation and eventual damage to the joints. Turmeric's combination of antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects explains why many people with joint disease find relief when they use the spice regularly. In a recent study of patients with rheumatoid arthritis, curcumin was compared to phenylbutazone and it revealed comparable improvements in shortened duration of morning stiffness, lengthened walking time, and reduced joint swelling.
Epidemiological studies have linked the frequent use of turmeric to lower rates of breast, prostate, lung and colon cancer. They have proven that curcumin can prevent tumors from forming and some studies suggest that even when breast cancer is already present, curcumin can help slow the spread of breast cancer cells to the lungs in animal models.
Medicinal Benefits of Turmeric:
- Help for Cystic Fibrosis Sufferers
- Cancer Prevention
- Inhibits Cancer Cell Growth and Metastases
- A Potent, Yet Safe Anti-Inflammatory
- Relief for Rheumatoid Arthritis

Guyabano or Graviola leaves
are oval shaped with smooth, shiny texture. Guyabano leaves are 7 to 20 centimeters in length, pointed on both ends, with petioles about 5 mm long. Guyabano flowers bloom all year round but its peak is from May to June. Guyabano has a solitary flower that is large, yellow or greenish-yellow in color. The three outer petals are broadly ovate with a heart-shaped base, up to 5 centimeters long, and 3 centimeters wide; and the inner three are also large, elliptic to obviate, and rounded.
Guyabano or soursop is also known to possess medicinal properties that include cancer fighting activity.
Unfortunately, research revolving around guyabano’s healing properties is lacking in the scientific world, but so far researchers have been studying guyabano for its ability to protect against cancer and reduce side-effects of chemotherapy.
Since 1976, over 20 independent labs researched Guyabano’s anti-cancer effects following initial research carried out by the National Cancer Institute. The National Cancer Institute found that guyabano’s “leaves and stems were found effective in attacking and destroying malignant cells. After the 1976 findings, that were apparently never released to the public, other research studies came out with similar conclusions:
The Catholic University of South Korea reports that guyabano is not only a threat to cancer cells, but also leaves healthy cells alone. This is not the case with chemo, which target all the cells – much like antibiotics indiscriminately destroying all gut bacteria, good and bad.
One study published in the Journal of Natural Products found that one chemical in Graviola was 10,000 times more potent than a chemotherapy drug called Adriamycin.
Purdue University found that leaves from the guyabano tree are “killed cancer cells among six human cell lines”. The researchers also found that the leaves were particularly effective for prostate and pancreatic cancers.

Ampalaya Bitter Melon
(Momordica charantia) also known as Bitter Melon is a tropical vine of the family Cucurbitaceae, widely grown in the Amazon, Carribean, South east Asia such as Philippines for its edible fruit. Ampalaya or bitter melon as the name implies has a bitter taste due to the presence of momordicin, and is believed to be among the most bitter of all vegetables.
The Philippine Department of Health has endorsed Ampalaya Bitter Melon (Momordica Charantia) as an alternative herbal medicine for liver problems. Research about Ampalaya has shown that Ampalaya increases the production of beta cells by the pancreas, thereby improving the body’s ability to produce insulin, a hormone that controls the blood sugar, which is important in a diabetic diet.
Ampalaya leaves and fruits are excellent sources of Vitamin B, iron, calcium, and phosphorus. It is also rich in beta carotene.
Ampalaya is used as herbal treatment for diabetes, HIV, coughs, skin diseases, sterility in women, parasiticide, antipyretic and as purgative among others.
Ampalaya for Diabetes.
Clinical Studies for Ampalaya Bitter Melon demonstrated hypoglycemic properties (blood sugar lowering) or other actions of potential benefit against diabetes mellitus. The hypoglycemic chemicals found in Ampalaya Bitter Melon include a mixture of steroidal saponins known as charantins, insulin-like peptides, and alkaloids. The hypoglycemic effect is more pronounced in the fruit of bitter melon where these chemicals are in greater abundance. The fruit has also shown the ability to enhance cells’ uptake of glucose, to promote insulin release, and potentiate the effect of insulin. In other studies, bitter melon fruit and/or seed has been shown to reduce total cholesterol and triglycerides in both the presence and absence of dietary cholesterol. In one study, elevated cholesterol and triglyceride levels in diabetic rats were returned to normal after 10 weeks of treatment.
