If you care about your health, and you’re not satisfied with just being alive but being well, then you should read this write-up carefully.

Waterleaf, (Talinum triangulare), is one of those underrated and undervalued plants. Some even regard waterleaf as a nuisance, a stubborn weed that grows all year (though it flourishes more during the rainy season).

Like the grasses in the fields, we match them, urinate on them, and uproot them from our gardens, in preference to other plants which we consider more important. However, the more we weed them out, the more they grow again, as if in defiance.

I make bold to say that waterleaf is one of the most valuable healing herbs in nature’s pharmacy. As is usually the case, the best and most useful things in life, are cheap, available and accessible – air, sunshine, sleep and good vegetation.

Waterleaf is called Gbure in Yoruba, Ebe-dondon in Edo, Borkorborkor or Busummuruadwere in Twi, Shee in Ga, and in English is nicknamed Philippine spinach, sweetheart, flame flower, Florida spinach etc.

The leaves are excellent for diarrhoea, liver enlargement, and hepatitis. It is an excellent immune booster to those who often feel weak and tired, and those prone to frequent attacks of malaria. In many scientific studies and trials, waterleaf showed that it could inhibit the proliferation of cancerous cells and shrink tumours.

Other studies have been focused on its cerebral-protective potential, and it indicates that consumption of waterleaf enhances brain activities and protect brain tissues. Waterleaf is also a good remedy for insomnia (sleeping disorder).

Waterleaf contains more proteins than cashew nuts, more pectin (a food fibre that helps digestion) than apples, and have a high level of vitamin B, essential amino acids, omega3-fatty acids, resins, iron, calcium, copper, lead, manganese and zinc. It is also a rich source of carotenoids, vitamin C, A, thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, alpha and beta tocopherols.

The pounded waterleaf is applied to soothe inflammations. An infusion of the leaves is taken as a diuretic. For prostate enlargement, the roots are boiled. The dosage is half a glass twice daily. Waterleaf is good and safe for pregnant women and growing children, as it boosts their blood levels. Eating waterleaf regularly as soup helps to regulate hypertension and diabetes.

While waterleaf is very beneficial when it is taken as vegetable, dried herbs and infusion, juicing is the way to go if you want the best out of waterleaf. What is juicing? Juicing is a process whereby you extract vitamins, minerals and liquids from fruits and vegetables. This is usually done with an electric blender or juice extractor. There are lots of such blenders in the market but ask advice from a knowledgeable technician about the right blender for your needs.

To juice waterleaf, simply chop up the waterleaf (both stem and leaves) into pieces, in the same way as you do if you want to cook it. Then put two or three handfuls in the blender and add one litre of water. Blend in the same way as you blend your tomato or fruit. Sieve out the chaff, and you will be left with a dark green liquid, packed with vitamins and minerals.

Ensure you drink and finish the whole drink within 10 minutes. This is one big mistake many people make. They blend fruits and vegetables and then store them in the freezer for days. If you do that, you have already lost 60% of the active ingredients in the juice. So, if you want to get a 100% benefit from your waterleaf juice, drink it within 10 minutes.

Do you feel tired and weak every time? Are you battling with diabetes, hypertension and arthritis? Are you prone to frequent bouts of malaria? Have you been diagnosed with cancer or you want to prevent it? Do you want glowing and youthful skin? I strongly recommend you take waterleaf juice twice a week.

A trial will convince you!
