A 2007 study on antioxidant activity in mamaki leaves references the book Native Hawaiian Medicines by MN Chun, p. 216-7. Unfortunately the book is unavailable at the time of this post. So I’ll list the studies citations here to get a feel for what the book says on the subject of mamaki…
- Used by native Hawaiians to ease childbirth, to discharge blood, and to alleviate listlessness.
- Well know for alleviating various pre-existing diseases.
- Potential natural therapeutic medicine in regulating blood sugar levels, blood pressure, and cholesterol levels.
