A medicinal plant has been identified as a source of vitamin A for a number of people, including a young boy, in a South Indian village, a medical study has revealed.
The study by a team of Indian scientists, published in the journal PLOS One, found that the medicinal plant, amargoso (also known as bahana) was used in some parts of the country to treat a range of ailments.
“A study of children with cancer in South India revealed that the majority of children received amargos as a dietary supplement.
The majority of these children had not previously been diagnosed with cancer and had been living in poverty for many years,” the study said.
Researchers said the findings were a major step forward in the understanding of the medicinal uses of the plant.
The plant was grown for centuries in several parts of India.
It has been used for medicinal purposes in South Asia, the Middle East and Africa.
Amargoso has been traditionally used for treating cough, diarrhoea, headaches and toothaches.
It is also used to treat rheumatoid arthritis and is believed to have an anti-inflammatory effect.
Its leaves have been used to prevent inflammation, it is also known to treat the skin.
Some researchers have suggested that the leaves were also used for skin conditions including psoriasis and rheumatism.
But the plant’s medicinal properties have never been widely researched.
Dr. Rajesh Kumar, one of the authors of the study, said that there was a lot of uncertainty about the medicinal properties of amargo leaves.
“A lot of studies have been done on the plant but there is no definitive proof of its medicinal properties,” he told the BBC.
“What we have discovered is that its leaves contain antioxidants and it is thought to be able to reduce inflammation, so it can also be used for many conditions.”
Researchers also found that in South and Central India, there were many people who had been using amargozas to treat their symptoms.
“In many parts of South India, it was a common practice for children to use it as a treatment for their cough and diarrhea,” said Dr Kumar.
“Children were often taken for treatment of their acute respiratory symptoms and they were often also given amargosera.”
“The fact that the plant was used to control their cough in many parts, which is known to be an effective treatment for chronic cough, may have also contributed to the development of amarozoso as a medicine.”‘
It has been a very difficult situation for me’A doctor who treated children with acute respiratory infections, who wished to remain anonymous, told the Guardian that the use of amargeozas in India was “very difficult”.
“It has also been a difficult situation,” the doctor said.
“There were people who were dying from this disease in South Delhi and other places.”
The medical community has been doing everything they can to get it recognised as a safe and effective medicine.
“The study, which also looked at the use and consumption of the Amargoso medicinal plant in other parts of West Bengal, Bihar and Maharashtra, also found there was an increase in people using amargeos as dietary supplements in other states.
In some states, the amount of amagos consumed in the state was as high as 4,500 kilograms a year.
In many states, it had a consumption rate of nearly 5,000 kilograms a month.
The report noted that the average consumption of amargoos in the UK is around 1kg a day.
Dr Kumar said he believed the rise in consumption of Amargos was related to its popularity among the youth.”
It was just one of those things that people were used to,” he said.”
They have been growing it all their lives and they are not being bothered about the toxins in the plant.
“”They don’t feel any shame about eating it.
“He said that he hoped that the findings would inspire more research on Amargozos.”
There has been very little study into its therapeutic properties, but if we can do more research, it could be of use,” he added.”
We need to make sure that the Indian government makes amargosa available for free in all schools and colleges, so people can be able afford it.
