This wonderful natural remedy is constantly mistaken for an annoying garden weed but, plantain turns out to be a very beneficial herb for your home remedy kit and it is probably growing in your back yard right now. Here’s what you should know about plantain.

Plantain Health Benefits

This herb has been used since prehistoric times as a natural remedy. Plantain is very high in beta carotene and calcium. It also provides ascorbic acid and vitamin K.

It’s medicinal properties include astringent, antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, anti-histamine, demulcent, expectorant, styptic, and diuretic.

The broadleaf variety can be eaten raw and fresh in salads. The leaves are useful for insect bites, poison ivy rashes, minor sores, and boils. Internally, it is used for coughs and bronchitis, as a tea, tincture, or syrup.
