Not long ago I wrote about the madicinal values Tanglad (lemon grass) as a cure for cancer.
I recall that this view became prevalent in Israel.
I was intrigued because in the Philppines, Tanglad is merely used when roasting pigs.
It is that grass placed insde the lechon, so it would have that pleasurable aroma, preparatory for accumulating cholesterol.
I am not an avid lechon eater, but for me, the best part is that chewy, meaty portion found in the lowest part of the lechon's tummy. Unfortunately, tt is there that all the bad elements settle, the salt, the pig oil, the rekados, msg, etc... That is why that portion is so irresistably tasty.
Anyway,someone just emailed me to say that Tanglad is an anti-dote for high blood pressure.
Here is the email:
..I started drinking lemon grass a year ago now and I believed it helps. My blood pressure became so normal everyday. when I was on vacation in the Philippines, you won't believed it I guit taking my medicine like high blood pressure etc. You can get lots of lemon grass at Stater Bros.stores. 8 glasses a day will help you.
