Ulam raja also known as King’s Salad, has now been turned into a supplement that can help in preventing senile dementia among the elderly.

An important discovery

According to a report in Malay Mail, the supplement was made by Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM) researcher You Yee Xing, who received the ‘Anugerah Emas Kedoktoran’ at the university’s 49th convocation ceremony recently for the feat.

The report said, the Ulam Raja supplement which contains a micronutrient usually found in plants called polyphenol and antioxidants, can help in preventing senility amongst elderly.

It also could act as an agent in preventing cognitive disorders by reducing the lipid peroxidation while increasing the levels of glutathione serum, further activating the brain.

Furthermore, the supplement is also able to increase the global cognitive functioning and working memory while also decreasing tensions and emotional disturbance amongst the elderly.

You also took to Youtube to explain that he conducted a research on the effectiveness of the supplement towards the elderly.

“The results from the research could not only bring positive impacts towards public health but it can also be used for economic knowledge,” he said.

“This knowledge or information could lead to the growth of agro-based industry and also the agriculture industry relating to Ulam Raja thus increasing the nation’s income,” said the 28-year-old PhD graduate from UKM’s faculty of health sciences, majoring in dietetics.

Bravo for the supplement that is bound to help many people!
