Best natural weightloss products contain chickweed

This Month’s Herb is Chickweed.

Why Chickweed?

That in and of itself is a good question. Anyone who tries to keep their lawn in pristine condition knows that there’s always a battle with chickweed. It is that obnoxious little crawling weed that you can’t get rid of. After doing some research I found that it is much more useful than it is obnoxious.


Let’s look at just what chickweed is first. Chickweed is a member of the Caryophyllaceae family. Common chickweed is a matted, herbaceous, winter annual broadleaf plant. Chickweed consists of the leaves and stems of a low-growing annual plant with small, star-shaped, white flowers. Chickweed can act as either an annual or a winter annual. The leaves are small, rounded and pointed at the tip. The flowers are solitary or in small clusters at ends of stems. The petals are white. Chickweed is also known as starweed, winterweed, satin flower and tongue grass.
 

Chickweed has been used in folk medicine as a remedy for asthma, constipation, cough, fever and various other ailments. Chickweed contains mucilage, saponins, silica, coumarins, flavonoids (including glycoside rutin), triterpenoids, and carboxylic acids. Chickweed is rich in minerals, including copper and iron, and vitamins A, B, and C. Chickweed contains relatively high amounts of vitamins and flavonoids, which may partly explain its effectiveness as a topical treatment for skin irritations and itching. That also accounts for its usefulness as an appetite suppressant. It is well known among the herbalist’s that chickweed suppresses appetite. As a demulcent (forms a soothing film over a mucous membrane, relieving minor pain and inflammation of the membrane) chickweed is said to soothe hunger pangs as well as minor irritations in the digestive tract. When chickweed is combined with other herbs that also help with appetite suppression it becomes a super herb.
