Purslane Weed or Healthy Plant?

It’s Not a Weed! It’s an Unrecognized, Health-Boosting Wonder Plant!

Purslane, which most people take for a common weed, is actually a health-boosting food that many people grow for consumption. Purslane or Portulaca oleracea is a beautiful plant with yellow flowers. It originates from India and Persia, but has since spread all over the world.

This plant is very versatile in that it can grow almost everywhere. It is packed full of Omega-3 fatty acids, fiber, vitamin A, vitamin C, all sorts of B vitamins, iron, magnesium, manganese, potassium, calcium, and copper, as well as betalain pigments and carotenoids.

Here are some of the health benefits associated with consuming this plant.

Heart Health
Both potassium and Omega-3 fatty acids are known to promote heart health. Potassium works to lower blood pressure and Omega-3 fatty acids help to reduce the amount of bad cholesterol in the body. These two components of purslane are what make it so great for the heart.

Weight Loss
Being low in calories, but packed with fiber makes purslane perfect for those who want to shed some extra pounds. This plant is also nutrient-rich which means that people who consume it will feel full without all those extra calories.
Gastrointestinal Health.

In traditional Chinese medicine, purslane is used to treat gastrointestinal problems from diarrhea to dysentery. This plant’s ability to treat these issues most likely comes from several organic compounds found in the plant, like dopamine, malic acid, citric acid, alanine, and glucose.

Bone Strength
The calcium, magnesium, iron, and manganese in purslane are all necessary elements to protect and sustain bone health. Daily consumption of this “weed” may even prevent osteoporosis.

Improved Circulation
As previously stated, purslane is full of iron and copper. These twoelements are essential for a healthy circulatory system. A healthy circulatory system contributes to improved overall body health because more blood is getting to where it needs to be.

The next time you see purslane outside, take the time to pick it and give it a try. Adding it to your diet may be just what you need to live a long and healthy life!

I have heard it tastes really good!
Take a look!

Feeling Sad?
