The seed mainly has the following medicinal properties: menstruation inducing, abortifacient, contraceptive, anti-tumor, liver-protective, antispasmodic and fertility-inhibiting. The root has an antibacterial effect, is a liver tonic and an antiseptic for the urinary tract.

Good for digestion

  1. Wild carrot is good for digestion. It is a vegetable that causes bile production to increase. It has traditionally been a medicine to support liver function. A better functioning liver means a better functioning digestive system. More nutrients are absorbed. In addition, carrot expels worms from the intestines. It relaxes the bowels and relieves flatulence, bloating and indigestion. It is used for slow liver function, alcohol hangover and detox; cleaning up toxins. It helps prevent liver damage from coffee, drugs, alcohol, and medicines.

Carrots, good for immune system

  1. Carrots generally increase resistance. The immune system plays an important role in the prevention of cancer. That's why eating wild carrots is one of the ways to prevent cancer. It also helps against degenerative diseases such as enlarged prostate, visual impairment and heart disease. Since carrot helps the liver, improving digestion, it allows more nutrients to be absorbed. This improved absorption of phytonutrients improves the functioning of the immune system.

Wild carrot seed for urinary tract

  1. The seeds of carrot have a very diuretic or diuretic effect. They dissolve kidney grit and kidney stones. Wild carrot seeds can be used for fluid accumulation or edema, cystitis, prostatitis, enlarged prostate and bladder problems. They support the function of the kidneys to remove waste products. This also helps with gout and arthritis. These two infectious diseases are almost always related to less well-functioning kidneys, causing waste products to accumulate between the joints and causing inflammation there. The wild carrot itself has a greater antiseptic effect on all forms of urinary tract infections than the seed.

Root and reproductive system

  1. Wild carrot seeds are a natural contraceptive. The seeds block the synthesis of progesterone and prevent the implantation of a fertilized egg in the uterine wall. Because of this you should not use the seed if you want to become pregnant and not during pregnancy! The root, on the other hand, contains porphyrins. These stimulate the production of female sex hormones. According to the signature theory, the root is phallus-shaped and therefore has an aphrodisiac effect.
