Chaya tree

Have you ever heard chaya tree? It’s not familiar to me this kind of tree and then one day my friend came to visit me and she gives me the branch of chaya tree. I plant it at my backyard and it grows without proper caring. I was just surprised when one day I’ve heard in radio that chaya is an herbal tree.

I try to surf this kind of plant in the net and I found out that chaya is primarily collected as a food plant; it has been used therapeutically for a number of ailments such as diabetes, arteriosclerosis, gallstones and high cholesterol. It is also believed that chaya cleans circulatory system, stimulates lactation, improves eyesight, strengthens nails, improve digestion. Now I know what chaya tree is.
