Stop Calling It Just A Weed, It’s One Of The Best Plants To Boost Your Health

Purslane (Latin name: Portulaca oleracea) is considered a common garden weed which originated from Persia and India. Now, it is commonly found in many countries around the world – it is considered weed in some, but others actually eat it!
This plant has yellow flowers and green leaves, making it prettier than a common weed. However, it has amazing healing abilities which make it more than a weed!

The seeds exist in different climates

Purslane grows in different climates and soil, and its seeds are powerful and stay viable for more than 4 decades. The plant can strengthen your immune system and improve your overall health.

Purslane is also known as pig weed due to the fact that it’s favorite food for pigs and livestock. This “common weed” differs from weeds thanks to its nutritional profile – it contains omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin A, essential nutrients that can improve your eyesight and fight cancer.

A powerful antioxidant

Purslane contains two types of betalain pigments – yellow beta-xanthins and reddish beta-cyanins, powerful antioxidants and anti-mutagens. It also contains vitamin B and C, niacin, riboflavin, carotenoids, magnesium, calcium and iron.
Now that you know what it contains, should purslane be still considered a common weed? We don’t think so!
