Naseberry leaves are widely used in the West Indies as medicinal herbs for various ailments

Naseberry Tree with Fruits

Naseberry leaves can also be found in Latin America. Most people are familiar with the fruits and have no knowledge of the goodness and health benefits of the leaves which may be used as medicinal herbs. However, the benefits of naseberry are many and it is one of the favorite fruits enjoyed by us in the Caribbean. 

Naseberry (Manilkara sapota), also referred to as neaseberry and sapodilla contains protein, vitamin C, vitamin B6 carbohydrates, dietary fiber, calcium, iron, potassium, phosphorus, copper, folate, as well as magnesium.

Naseberry is a tiny brown fruit which is packed with many health benefits.  It is very sweet and it possesses small black seeds.  The pulp, which is usually consumed by all can be blended into a healthy and delicious juice.  The leaves are very much in competition with the fruits when it comes to health benefits and so cannot be left out.

A researcher by the name P. H. Gosse, said in 1951, that naseberry was one of the richest and most agreeable of the West Indian fruits.  It is in fact the truth.

Health benefits of naseberry leaves

The leaves are utilized by many users as a very potent nerve tonic. This is surely a natural approach to treat nervous conditions, which includes anxiety attack. It will allow a person to sleep peacefully after a long day at work.

The leaves are also a good remedy for diarrhea, colds, flu, fevers, as well as coughs. My grandmother used it as a rubbing to relieve muscular aches and pains. This is done by combining the naseberry leaves with either rum or rubbing alcohol and then used it accordingly.

Neaseberry seeds are also very beneficial as medicinal herbs due to the fact that they are used by the Colombians who manufactured them into tablets or pills to discharge kidney stones from the body. Also, the crushed seeds when mixed with water may be used as an antidote to treat animal bites, poisonous insect bites as well as rabies. This is done by applying this mixture to the affected areas.

The sap can also be utilized, so this is truly a versatile plant. The sap, which is sweet, is referred to as chicle. This can be very useful as a filling in rotten or decayed teeth. Yes, there are some truths that are hard to believe when it comes to using herbs, but the truths will always stand and the users can always testify of the herbal benefits of these plants.

These medicinal herbs have their place in the herbal kingdom and should never be taken lightly. They are delightful, pleasant and a natural change from the artificial beverages that have limited medicinal benefits and at times no benefit at all. Do you want a change? Naseberry leaves tea can do it.
