The Gynura procumbens, or also known as the leaves of the gods, are believed to have many health benefits. Plants with the Latin name Gynura procumbens are widely grown in Southeast Asian countries, such as Malaysia and Thailand, including in Indonesia.

Several studies reported that the extract of the continued life of the leaves contains various chemically active substances that are good for health, such as saponins, tannins, terpenoids, flavonoids, kaempferol-3-O-rutinoside, kaempferol, astragalin, and rutin.

The antioxidants contained in the life-long leaves can fight free radicals in the body that can damage cells and cause cancer. In addition, this leaf is also believed to be used to treat heart disease and diabetes.
