One such example is the curry plant. Apart from it's culinary importance, this plant also has a long list of medicinal properties. A few of them are
- anti-diabetic (good for diabetic patients),
- anti-oxidant (improves resistance),
- anti-inflammatory (prevents or cures swelling),
- hepatoprotective (protects the liver from toxins) and
- anti-hypercholesterolemic (helps control cholesterol level)
