The healing power of milkweed foot

  1. Melganzenvoet is the name of a plant that you have undoubtedly seen in the Netherlands. Maybe you have removed it from your own garden mumbling, what are all that weeds doing here? Goosefoot is a strong example of how laughable modern humans are. He throws the edible and medicinal plants out of his garden and then, for 40 years from his delivery, glues himself to a slave life that takes him to the car, his job and the supermarket. Life would be much easier if we cut down on our work hours and eat super healthy plants like goosefoot.

  1. Goosefoot is spread all over the world. It also grows well in the tropical regions. In mountains it grows up to 4300 meters in height. When mankind learns about plants such as milkweed, hunger during wars and other crises is forever a thing of the past. This plant is considered a weed in Europe but there are many areas where the plant is happily eaten. It prefers to grow on fallow land, untilled land and fields. In connection with the latter, farmers are not so fond of goose foot. The goosefoot gushing among the cultivated crops could be explained as follows: Nature lets the farmer be how superfluous his work really is; there are plenty of wild edible plants.

Edibility of goose feet like bread

  1. The seeds of baby geese have been eaten since at least prehistoric times. Probably before that too, but historians cannot look back much further; what happened before prehistoric times is the subject of speculation. The seeds of this plant contain a lot of oil. After grinding the seeds you get an oil-containing paste. As a result, the flour can be used for baking our daily bread without too many additives. Goosefoot bread is sometimes scornfully called 'hunger bread' but it is a lot healthier than all the types of supermarket bread we know today. The baby milkweed is related to the amaranth, a plant that is used to make flour for the health breads of the organic shops. [! 156492 => 1130 = 154!] Naming

  1. The scientific, Latin name for milkweed is Chenopodium album. Chenopodium literally means 'goose foot' while album is the Latin word for 'white'. The plant is so named because the leaves often resemble the shape of a goose foot, although the leaves can also be elongated oval. In Germany the plant is called Weiße Gänsefuß while in English-speaking countries the plant is called chicken weed. Two other names in Dutch are melde and white goose foot.

We feel too good

  1. Nowadays people regard baby goose foot as sheep, pig and bird food, while it would save people a lot of money, time and effort to eat plants like goose foot. People feel too good to eat wild plants from nature, while these are much healthier than the cultivated marketing products of the agricultural industry. Apparently, people prefer to buy a plant that is kept upright with pesticides and herbicides instead of eating healthy plants for free. We'd rather lie in front of the boss for a few extra hours than simply pick an edible plant. And then we complain that everything has become so expensive. Isn't man busy laughing?

Goosefoot as a vegetable

  1. The leaves of the milkweed are edible like spinach. Especially in the Himalayas, milkweed is still common as a vegetable. There are not so many supermarkets there, so people have to use the free nature as a primeval supermarket. The young seeds can also be boiled. They then get a broccoli-like taste.

Traditional medicine

  1. Goosefoot is not only a healthy wild vegetable but it is also a medicinal plant. The leaves are effective against worm infections, inflammation, rheumatism and constipation. The plant is applied externally because the leaves become insect bites, heat stroke, rheumatism and swollen feet. A decoction can be used for caries or dental inflammation. The seeds were chewed to treat urological problems such as urinary tract infections. The juice of the stem is used for freckles and sunburn. The juice from the root is used for diarrhea accompanied by inflammation of the stomach or intestinal wall. As a powdered food, it can suppress the menstrual cycle

Vitamins goosefoot

  1. Goosefoot is a rich source of vitamins. Some sites try to warn people against eating goosefoot because it contains oxalic acid. This substance is bad for only a small proportion of people, namely for those with kidney problems. You also don't eat other vegetables every day. Goosefoot is therefore completely harmless. Moreover, you do not have to eat much of it. 100 grams of goose foot already contains 96% of the Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) of vitamin C! This unimaginably high percentage is due to the fact that the other vegetables (from the supermarket) are grown and grow on impoverished soil. Goosefoot grows where it wants, and that is often in nutrient-rich soil. As a result, it also contains a high amount of vitamin A; 100 grams contain 73% of the RDI for vitamin A! Other vitamin percentages are: B2: 37% RDA, B6: 21% RDA, B1: 14% RDA. One ounce of Goose's foot contains 8% of the RDI of B9 and B3.

Minerals milkweed foot

  1. The percentages for minerals in goosefoot are slightly lower than those for vitamins but still relatively high compared to other vegetables. These percentages are normally found in nuts and seeds. Here too, the percentages relate to weights of 100 grams. Melde contains 37% of the RDI for manganese and 31% of the RDI for calcium. Magnesium, phosphorus and potassium are in this plant with 10% of the RDI. Iron closely tracks these minerals at 9% of the RDI. In addition, we reported 5% of the RDA of zinc.

Processing form milkweed foot

  1. To enjoy the medicinal properties of milkweed, you can simply eat it. You can also drink a tea from it. As with all medicinal teas, it also applies here that it is never wise to drink the same tea for longer than four weeks. As far as food is concerned, it is sufficient to eat the plant once a week, if it is in season. If necessary, you can dry the leaves and use them in a stew in winter.

Ingredients and effects

  1. This plant mainly uses its leaves and flowers or seeds. The calf's foot contains the following ingredients: saponins or soaps, betalain, flavonoids, oxalic acid, proteins, vitamins and minerals. This means that this plant has the following medicinal activities: blood purifying, anti-inflammatory in kidney and bladder infections, lung support and wound healing.
