dysfunctions.

Grown throughout the tropical
regions of the world, the plantain
is a close relative of the banana,
making important contributor to
the economy of many countries.
The nutritional value of unripe
plantain makes it stand out as a
very important addition to any
healthy living diet plan due to its
nutrient content.
Practitioners of traditional
medicine have long prized the
starchy fruit for its medicinal
properties, which reputedly
include an ability to cure ulcer. It
is used in herbal medicine to
treat sluggish bowels, to heal
wounds, to fight skin infections,
to reduce phlegm, to soothe
urinary tract infections, and to
ease dry coughs.
Most ulcers are not caused
directly by stress but by the
bacterium Helicobacter pylori,
which is why ulcers today are
often treated with antibiotics
along with an acid suppressor.
Studies on rats with ulcers
caused by daily aspirin use have
shown that unripe green
plantain can both prevent the
formation of ulcers and help to
heal them. The agent believed to
be responsible for plantain’s
curative effects was tested it in
rats.
Scientists reason that the starch
in plantain’s unripe form helps to
decrease acidity and reduce
irritation. It stimulates the cells
on the lining of the stomach to
produce mucus that is thicker,
which guards against acid aside
its elimination of stomach
bacteria that has been pointed as
the main cause of ulcers.
Moreover, in a review that
appeared in a 2002 issue of the
“Indian Journal of
Pharmacology,” two researchers
that chronicled more than 30
years of research into the
curative properties of dried
powder of unripe plantain also
conclude that the plantain
powder is a potent herbal
remedy for the treatment of
peptic ulcer disease.
Medical research confirms that
the plantain is also good for
many of life’s ailments including
diabetes. Unripe plantain has the
potential of lowering blood
sugar, according to a study, titled
“Hypoglycemic effect of
methanolic extract of Musa
paradisiaca (Musaceae) green
fruits in normal and diabetic
mice”. It was published in
Experimental Clinical
Pharmacology by J. A. Ojewole
and C. O. Adewunmi.
Although this group of
researchers do not know the
precise mechanism of the
hypoglycemic (blood sugar-
lowering) action of unripe
plantain, they suggested that it
could be due, at least in part, to
stimulation of insulin production
and subsequent glucose
utilisation.
Nevertheless, the findings of this
experimental animal study
indicate that unripe plaintain
possesses hypoglycemic activity
lends credence to its folkloric use
in the management and/or
control of adult-onset, type-2
diabetic mellitus among the
Yoruba-speaking people of
South-Western Nigeria.
In addition, diabetic patients are
more prone developing stomach
ulcers because they are at risk to
acquire H. Pylori infection due to
their blood glucose
concentration levels.
Unfortunately, the high blood
sugar also contributes to a delay
in the healing of this ulcer.
But Indian researchers, looking
into the benefit of unripe
plantain in diabetic animals that
also had ulcer, indicated that it
could be more effective in
diabetes with concurrent gastric
ulcer.
The 2013 study published in the
BMC Complementary and
Alternative Medicine was entitled
“Healing effects of Musa
sapientum var. paradisiaca in
diabetic rats with co-occurring
gastric ulcer: cytokines and
growth factor by PCR
amplification.”
