Nature’s Herbs Chickweed Formula

Description


Although chickweed (Stellaria media) is often enjoyed as a salad green, it’s also been used in folk medicine for centuries. The chickweed plant originated in Europe, but now grows in the United States. The leaves, stems and flowers have traditionally been used to treat various health conditions ranging from cough and indigestion to skin diseases and itching. Folk medicine suggests that chickweed may help rheumatic conditions, but clinical trials haven’t proven this.


Chickweed has been found to contain high amounts of vitamins such as vitamin C and antioxidant flavonoids. These beneficial nutrients are believed to help relieve skin itching and inflammation from skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis. Chickweed may also help relieve skin irritations and itching secondary to insect stings and bites and poison ivy and poison oak dermatitis.


Pros


Containing 1 mg of chickweed per serving, Nature’s Herbs Chickweed formula provides an easy and convenient way to enjoy the benefits of chickweed. Grown wild in the fertile valleys of Europe, Nature’s Herbs Chickweed formula guarantees maximum plant potency and freshness, with active antioxidant ingredients. Nature’s Herbs “freshcare” processing system prevents plant oxidation and provides uncompromised quality.

According to folk medicine, chickweed may benefit:

• Inflammatory conditions, such as rheumatism, psoriasis

• Eczema

• Insect bites, stings, wounds

• Poison ivy and poison oak dermatitis

• Rashes, burns, chapped skin

• Itchy skin

• Diaper rash

• Stomach ulcers

• Cough (as an expectorant)


Cons


Some of the active constituents in chickweed remain unknown. More studies are needed to thoroughly analyze chickweed and support chickweed’s health benefits.

No adverse effects with chickweed have been reported. However, chickweed should not be used if you are pregnant or breast-feeding. No drug interactions with chickweed have been reported.


Is It For You?


If you suffer from the conditions noted above including itching from skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, insect stings and bites or poison ivy and poison oak dermatitis, then Nature’s Herbs Chickweed formula may be worth considering.

I use these a few days after getting several nematocera bites and only a few hours after the first pil I feel the itching stop and the bites stops bothering me.

I'm using chickweed to treat skin inflammations and an itchy, flaky scalp. I started using it on my patches of eczema and then tried it on the scalp psoriasis and found that it works when you make a little paste out of it and let it sit on the dry patches for about an hour before washing out.
