Castor Bean Botanical Name(s): Ricinus Communis Parts Used: Leaves, seeds, roots, oil, fruit Habitat: Common in distributed areas and wastelands. Description An herbaceous annual plant, castor grows to a height of 3 to 10 feet. The long-stalked glossy leaves are 15 to 45 cm in length with 5-12 deep lobes. The leaf color can vary from dark green with a reddish tinge to dark reddish purple and bronze. The stout stem and spiny seed pods may vary in pigmentation. The male flowers are yellowish-green in color, having prominent creamy stamens, while the female flowers bear prominent red stigmas at the tips of the spikes. The suckering perennial shrub is known to grow very fast. The spiny greenish capsule fruit of castor is capsule-shaped and contains large, oval, shiny, bean-like highly poisonous seeds. Though castor is native to south-eastern Mediterranean Basin, Eastern Africa and India, it is spread widely throughout the tropical regions. Uses & Benefits of Castor Castor plant is extensively used as a decorative plant in parks and other public places. It is a harmless purgative and very effective in treating rheumatic and skin disorders. A decoction of the roots of this plant is used in the treatment of lumbago and sciatica. Castor leaves are used as an external application to boils and swellings. The leaves, when heated in coconut oil, can be applied on guinea-worm sores, to extract the worms. The castor seeds are used in making jewelry, particularly necklaces and bracelets. A poultice of the seeds is applied to the scrofulous sores and boils that result from tuberculosis of lymph nodes. Castor oil is massaged over the breasts of women, after childbirth, to increase the milk flow, since it stimulates the mammary glands. The leaves of the plant are also used to foment the breasts. Regular use of castor oil promotes hair growth and cures dandruff. Take 30 to 60 grams of castor oil orally with 250 to 375 grams of lukewarm milk to cure constipation. #californianative #onemansweedisanothermansherb #weedsareflowerstoo #ifitgrowsinyouryardyoumayneedit #donthateeducate #askyourhhp

Two very different vegetables are known as Artichokes, and each has specific health benefits. The Globe Artichoke (Cynara cardunculus) is the flower bud of a large thistle, having spine-tipped leaves with edible bases and an edible heart. The Jerusalem Artichoke (Helianthus tuberosus), also called the Sunchoke, is the tuber of a type of sunflower and resembles a longer, thinner potato. Globe Artichokes have been cultivated since ancient times, with probable origins in the Maghreb region of North Africa. Jerusalem Artichokes are native to eastern North America and were domesticated and grown by Native Americans long before the arrival of any Europeans. Both types of Artichoke are low in fat and calories, so are excellent choices for traditional weight loss diets. Contributing essential minerals and fiber, Jerusalem and Globe Artichokes are a healthy addition to any eating plan. Globe Artichokes are particularly high in antioxidants, in the form of vitamin C and phytonutrients, which are thought to protect cells against the attack of free radicals. The two major phytonutrients found in Globe Artichokes are Cynarin and Silymarin. These are of particular interest for their ability to lower cholesterol, protect and support liver function, increase bile production and prevent gallstones. Standardized supplements of Globe Artichoke extract with stated minimum amounts of active ingredients are available in tablets, capsules, gels and liquids. The notable side-effect of everything tasting sweet after eating an Artichoke can be attributed to Cynarin. Studies suggest that Silymarin, which is also found in Milk Thistle, may also help control blood sugar in type II diabetics. High cholesterol and triglyceride levels, particularly of the small particle LDL form of cholesterol, are strongly associated with heart disease. Globe Artichoke consumption has been linked to lowering cholesterol and triglycerides in the bloodstream #onemansweedisanothermansherb #weedsareflowerstoo #herbsthatheal #californianative #artichokethistle
