Description

50 days. A tender frost perennial that performs best in hot weather. The succulent leaves and stems are a wonderful addition to any salad and can be used cooked or raw. It can be used in soups as a thickening agent. The leaves are a rich source of omega-3 fatty acids and can be used fresh or dried.

Also known as Little Hogweed, Red Root, and Pursley, this succulent annual is a unique ingredient to add to any dish that calls for 'greens'. In the western world, Purslane is considered an exotic weed that produces blossoms only when it has received sufficiant rainfall that year. Every part of the plant is edible, including the prostate stems and the buds.

*Health benefits of Purslane*

This wonderful green leafy vegetable is very low in calories (just 16 kcal/100g) and fats; nonetheless, it is rich in dietary fiber, vitamins, and minerals. Those that cannot get their omega 3's from fish due to allergies can get them from eating Purslane which is what i must do as i have allergic reaction to fish and fish oil.

    Fresh leaves contain surprisingly more omega-3 fatty acids (α-linolenic acid) than any other leafy vegetable plant. 100 grams of fresh purslane leaves provide about 350 mg of α-linolenic acid. Research studies show that consumption of foods rich in ω-3 fatty acids may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease, stroke, and help prevent the development of ADHD, autism, and other developmental differences in children.

    It is an excellent source of Vitamin A, (1320 IU/100 g, provides 44% of RDA) one of the highest among green leafy vegetables. Vitamin A is a known powerful natural antioxidant and is essential for vision. This vitamin is also required to maintain healthy mucus membranes and skin. Consumption of natural vegetables and fruits rich in vitamin A is known to help to protect from lung and oral cavity cancers.

    Purslane is also a rich source of vitamin C, and some B-complex vitamins like riboflavin, niacin, pyridoxine and carotenoids, as well as dietary minerals, such as iron, magnesium, calcium, potassium, and manganese.

    Furthermore, present in purslane are two types of betalain alkaloid pigments, the reddish beta-cyaninsand the yellow beta-xanthins. Both pigment types are potent anti-oxidants and have been found to have anti-mutagenic properties in laboratory studies.
