Purslane: The Weed With Wholesome Health Benefits
By Dr. Joseph Mercola
This herb is widely embraced in certain cuisines as a wonderful addition to salads and other recipes.7 In the U.S., however, it's still seen as an unwelcome plant.8
Remember that if you remove this herb from your garden, you may be casting aside the numerous health benefits that it can actually offer you. In fact, purslane may be called a "superfood" because of the vitamins and minerals that can be found in this herb.
