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


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, contains protein, vitamin C, vitamin B6 carbohydrates, dietary fiber, calcium, iron, potassium, phosphorus, copper, folate, as well as magnesium.

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.

The 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.

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