Bitter yan! Odiongan Vice Mayor Diven Dimaala sings the praises of ampalaya
It looks like Odiongan Vice Mayor Diven Dimaala does not mind the bitterness of ampalaya.
In a Facebook post, Dimaala listed the benefits derived from ampalaya as he shared a photo of him and Mayor Trina Fabic posing before a big bunch of the vegetables.
He said ampalaya, scientifically known as momordica charantia, reduces blood sugar and cholesterol levels, has anti-cancer properties, is available in all seasons, and is best eaten in a salad or with eggs and onions.
