Some medicinal uses of chard

Posted on November 30, 2014 at 2:55 AM

Hello everyone.  Chard has been around for a long time.  The Greeks were enjoying the leaves in at least 400 BC.  Chard is similar to spinach but has less of a oxalic acid content and has a milder taste.  Chard can be grown in cooler climates and is easy to grow.  It is grown in various parts of the world including Europe, United Kingdom and North America.  It can also be grown in Australia and is popular in New Zealand.  The leaves are rich in Vitamin A, C and K.  The leaves are also rich in carotenoid lutein.  Carotenoid lutein slows the progression of age related macular degeneration (by about 40%).  Lutein is also protective against heart diease.  Leaves should be eaten in moderation.  Young leaves are great in salads.  Leaves can be steamed or stir fryed.  The medicinal health aspects of chard are only in the seeds that are non hybrid, open polllinated or heirloom seeds.  Any chard that is massed produced hasn't got the healing aspects that have been mentioned.  When a seed has been altered in any way, that plant losses something.  Most fruit and vegetables brought from Coles and Woolworths are massed produced and therefore doesn't have the healing aspects.  So remember to buy open pollinated, non hybrid seed or heirloom seed and grow them yourself.  Love, peace  and harmony to you all.  Lesley. follow us at www.journeyman1.com
