Published on May 6, 2015 Managu is a traditional African vegetable that is so rich in iron which in most African communities, is served boiled to mothers before and after the birth of a child, or in any situation where there has been loss of blood. Traditionally the leaves were used as a quick fix for warriors after injuries to heal their wounds. Managu is also used as an anti-rheumatic, counter-irritant traditional medicine. The leaves can be crushed and mixed in a drink for curing diseases such as scurvy. The high vitamin content makes it good for the eyes and the level of protein favours high energy supply.
