The untold 100-year old story of Nigeria’s first homegrown modern drug

The untold 100-year old story of Nigeria’s first homegrown modern drug | Humanitarian & Cultural Causes in Africa | Scoop.it
Alabukun brand was founded by a Nigerian pharmacy apprentice and entrepreneur, Jacob Sogboyega Odulate in 1918
Igor Espanhol's insight:

"Nigerians who use the drug are convinced it cures almost every ailment from minor headaches, fevers and pains to battling chronic rheumatism and arthritis. Medically speaking, Alabukun powder is an analgesic but it’s used in local traditional herbal medicine concoctions as commonly as it is used in modern medicine in Nigeria."
