Clinacanthus nutans Lindau is known as snake grass, sambung nyawa, etc,  belonging to the Acanthaceae family. This plant has diverse and potential medicinal uses in traditional herbal medicine for treating skin rashes, insects and snake bites, lesions caused by herpes simplex virus, diabetes, and gout in Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand and China.

Phytochemical investigations documented the varied contents of bioactive compounds from this plant namely flavonoids, glycosides, glycoglycerolipids, cerebrosides and monoacylmonogalatosylglycerol.

The pharmacological experiment proved that various types of extracts and pure compounds from this species exhibited a broad range of biological properties such as anti-inflammatory, antiviral, antioxidant, and anti-diabetic activities. The findings of toxicity study showed that extracts from this plant did not show any toxicity thus it can be used as strong therapeutic agents for specific diseased conditions.

However, further experiments on chemical components and their mode of action showing biological activities are required to elucidate the complete phytochemical profile and assess to confirm their suitability for future drugs. This review summarizes the medicinal uses, phytochemistry and pharmacology of this plant in order to explore its therapeutic potential and gaps necessitating for prospected research work.

木瓜 风云 之 完结篇


续上回半粒木瓜被打入冷宫(冰箱),今天终于重见天日。


基于不浪费食物的原则下,¼粒木瓜被可妮下锅炒了。色香味都全了,就是甜了点。无奈!



既然改不掉木瓜的甜,索性将余下的¼粒木瓜煮木瓜糖水。加玉竹、杞子、红枣、百合、白糖,慢火褒2句钟。终于出了一锅可入口的甜木瓜汤了。

木瓜 风云



迈可种了棵木瓜树,结果累累。安妮煮了一大锅木瓜汤,迈可喝了午餐又晚餐,终于勉强给喝完。树上还有木瓜累累,难道要天天木瓜汤、炒木瓜、木瓜奶?

一粒给了米雪搅了木瓜奶。一粒给佳丽活生生吃了。半粒给王煮了汤。

可妮吃腻了王子料理。王子不会变化,木瓜汤里只有木瓜。安妮说,不如加入党参、玉竹、杞子,好喝多了!

王子照样画葫芦,还加了猪肉,慢熬三句中钟。熬出来了,王子还是不爱喝,小王子把一碗饭给送完,可妮还是不爱喝。

太甜了。爱人褒的汤水甜到入肺 !

Simplified Ongrizinal Stewed Daikon with Meatballs



This is a super easy dish to prepare.   The ingredients are available everywhere. 

As most self-taught-chefs are not familiar with the in-and-out of the beef at the meat counter section. Which part of the meat, fresh or not, cheap or expensive, with or without bone.  Thus, processed  meatballs are used to replace fresh beef.

First, the daikon is peeled and cut vertically about 1.5cm-thick-wheel.   Put into a claypot.
Add in 7-8 meatballs, to your liking.
Add 3-4 cloves of garlic, a spoonful of Chinese cooking wine, and black pepper powder.
Fill the water till full.

Shimmer for 3-4 hours. Turn off the gas stove before the water dries up.
