Cuban lab makes medicine from banana peel

Hanoi: Scientists from a pharmaceutical laboratory in Cuba have demonstrated a new and “highly-effective” medical product made from banana peel.

Jorge Luis Martinez and Yudit Rodriguez, executives from the Pharmaceutical Biological Laboratory — or Labiofam — presented the products to the Vietnamese pharmaceutical industry at the Institute of Medicinal Materials in Vietnam capital Hanoi.

The medical products “stirred up interest and admiration among Vietnamese scientists and researchers”, the report said.

After a meticulous process comprising laboratory study, tests of medicinal properties and health registration strictly according to international regulations, the products have been launched in the market, Rodriguez said.

A medicine named “Asmacan” is a bronchodilator and expectorant, and is very effective for asthma patients. This has been seen among patients in Cuba, the scientists said.

Another medicine “Nutrisol” is a nutritional, restorative supplement used in the treatment of anaemia, anorexia and convalescence.

Other medicines to treat specific types of anaemia are “Ferrical” and “Acitan”. They provide a missing dietetic-fiber supplement, encourage more healthy processes, and are effective protectors of the gastric mucus.

A medicine called “Propolina” is a restorer in immunological disorders and is also and anti-parasite, anti-inflammatory, analgesic and anti-bacterial, all in one, they said.

Labiofarm has also created a line of products obtained from mango peel, known as “Vimang”. It can be used as a nutritional supplement for people subdued to high tensions such as pilots, high-performance athletes and divers.
