The leaf of life is a popular house plant that has been linked to numerous health benefits. It is also known as the miracle leaf, life plant, Goethe plant, Mexican love plant, and by its scientific name Bryophyllum pinnatum.
The plant is native to Madagascar, but it is commonly produced in tropical locations around the world, including Jamaica, where it is frequently used as a herbal treatment to treat respiratory disorders such as asthma, colds, coughs, shortness of breath, and bronchitis. It's commonly drunk as a tea, blended into juices, or eaten raw.
The leaf of life is also considered to be an effective kidney stone therapy. A 2014 study found that rats given a therapy containing plant extracts were less likely to develop kidney stones than animals given a placebo. The rats who received the medication had lower amounts of urine oxalate, which are the oxalate that produce kidney stones.
Recent research has also shown that the leaf of life may be advantageous to pregnant women. Pregnant women suffering from sleep disorders were given 350 mg pills containing the plant extract in a research. The women reported fewer wake-ups and better sleep quality at the conclusion of the research. There were no negative impacts on either the mother or the fetus in this investigation.
