Gynura Procumbens (Miracle Spinach) is an easy and fast-growing vegetable plant used in Asian traditional systems of medicine for its therapeutic applications. In Malay, it is called Sambung Nyawa (“Prolongation of Life) and in Chinese it is called Bai Bing Cao (“100 ailments”), referring to its perceived disease-preventive versatility.
