If you are a gardener, you surely hate the annoying weeds that keep appearing in the yard. Yet, our goal is to warn you not to pull it out one particular weedy-looking plant- purslane.
Apparently, this plant can offer numerous benefits, as it is high in vitamins and minerals, and above all, it is completely natural, and GMO-free remedy.
Purslane is a plant that can survive for a very long time, up to twenty-five years, due to the strength of its seeds. Moreover, this plant is rich in iron and calcium, so it also strengthens the bones.
It is loaded with protein, so it can provide body energy for the entire day.
Purslane is richer in vitamin A than any other leafy green vegetables, so it effectively prevents cancer as well.
The high omega-3 fatty acids content also prevents heart diseases and stroke. Additionally, it naturally lowers the risk of developmental disorders in children, like ADHD and autism.
Therefore, instead of destroying it, you should consider implementing it into your diet. You can use it as a spinach replacement with its crunchy- feel and lemony taste leaves, add it to salads and sandwiches and enjoy the new, delicious taste.
