Natural Medicine in Central Cuba
Monday, March 12, 2018



Havana.- The central Cuban province of Cienfuegos is cultivating medicinal plants at the Gallego Otero farm.

According to specialists, the climate allows producing calendula (Calendula officinalis), passionflower (Passiflora incarnate) and chamomile, which are varieties of plants that were imported a few years ago to prepare medicines.

In addition, the farm supplies raw materials such as Caribbean pine (Pinus caribaea), majagua (Hibiscus elatus), the ribwort plantain (Plantago lanceolata) and mentha (Mentha spicata) to the laboratories in the province.

The experts noted that they have succeeded in recovering the flower of Jamaica (Hibiscus sabdariffa), an extinct species in the farm for a few years, due to the growing demand for that plant, which is rich in Vitamin C with properties to treat and prevent colds.

In this way, the environment is preserved and production of medicinal plants is guaranteed, as specimens are supplied to other territories of the country with a view to obtaining medicines.
