“We have carried out studies on extracts of local plants to establish their authenticity in treating cardiovascular diseases, high blood pressure, diabetes and even cancer. We are currently carrying our research on omi ogi and lemon. This protects and cleans up the liver even when it is already infected.

“We are still going further to see its effects on high blood pressure and if it can lower blood glucose. It would be great if it can cure these two conditions also,” she said according to Punch.
