An infusion prepared with this leaf can be a real cure-all for the kidneys and blood circulation
We are what we eat: How many times have we heard this phrase?
Those who affirm it with certainty are not wrong, because it is absolutely true that, to be healthy, it is essential to eat well and maintain healthy habits.
Our lifestyle affects our health. Very often, due to daily contingencies, lack of time or bad habits, it is not easy to engage in physical exercise or eat in a healthy way at every meal.
Those same fast and hastily prepared meals, then, risk being counterproductive to good health, because they may be loaded with preservatives, consist of mainly so-called "junk foods" or be consumed quickly without the proper mindfulness.
But when we are so lucky as to carve out a moment for ourselves and for our well-being, why not rely on all the goodness nature can give us?
There are many non-artificial products already present in the environment that surrounds us and there is no reason not to take advantage of them.
Here, we want to talk about a really particular antioxidant remedy that, when integrated into our daily diet, can be of great help to our health.
To be specific, it is the Loquat plant aka Japanese medlar which has become increasingly common in Europe and around the world, not to be confused with the common medlar (Germanic).
In addition to having a very good fragrance, reminiscent of hawthorn, this plant has leaves that can be used to prepare an infusion.
Let's see what are the benefits of an infusion prepared with 4 or 5 loquat leaves placed in boiling water for a few minutes.
- Improves kidney function and purification
- Improves the functioning of the pancreas
- Detoxifies and promotes the proper functioning of the liver
- Stimulates insulin production and can help prevent diabetes
- Strengthens the immune system
- Helps against hypertension
- Helps maintain mucous membranes
A real cure-all for our body!
