pain from disorders such as arthritis. Men who are concerned about prostate problems will also benefit from

the plants root extract. This unknown property is effective at killing the mosquitoes that carry malaria parasites.
  The plant also has a long history of use for improving liver diseases such as hepatitis, alleviating constipation,
bladder infections and water retention.
  This is great news for Australians as there is expected to be more than 87,000 heart disease events in Australia in
2009. This is calculated into 55,000 heart attacks and 32,000 chest pain events causing an estimated 10,000 deaths
in 2009. This largely preventable disease has clogged the Australian health system with an estimated 79,000
hospitalizations in 2009 this cost the Australian economy an estimated $18 Billion a year .
  In conclusion, with Australia now being classed as the most obese nation and heart disease being the number one
killer in Australia the time has come to look to the east to combat westerner diseases. Harvard University has stated
that tea drinkers have a forty four percent lower risk of heart disease. It also appears that the plant is the most highly
researched plant in the world with ongoing research dating back to 1962.
