Medicinal uses of Drumstick leaves:

I have seen at home using a paste of drumstick leaves as an anti-inflammatory medicine. Drumstick leaves soup is extremely good for the prevention of asthma, bronchitis, tuberculosis.  It is used for the treatment of pimples, age spots and black heads when the drumstick leaves extract is mixed with lemon juice.

Not only the leaves but the whole drumstick plant is having medicinal value.
