And we shaded you with clouds and sent down to you manna and quails, [saying], “Eat from the good things with which we have provided you.” And they wronged us not – but they were [only] wronging themselves. (Sura Al-Baqarah (The cow)‚ verse 57) O Children of Israel, We delivered you from your enemy, and we made an appointment with you at the right side of the mount, and we sent down to you manna and quails. (Sura Taha ‚ verse 80) And we divided them into twelve descendant tribes [as distinct] nations. And we inspired to Moses when his people implored him for water, “Strike with your staff the stone,” and there gushed forth from it twelve springs. Every people knew its watering place. And we shaded them with clouds and sent down upon them manna and quails, [saying], “Eat from the good things with which we have provided you.” And they wronged us not, but they were [only] wronging themselves.

We can develop a research on its compounds by using in-silico studies and can find the synergism of compounds for multiple diseases for new drug combinations. For nutraceutical it has a good combinations of compounds so, we easily make a best nutraceutical.
