It turns out that purslane is high in vitamins and minerals. This not only can boost overall health, but the high amounts of iron and calcium that it contains will help to support bone health! The plant can actually live 25 years. The seeds are very strong and can have excellent benefits on the immune system.

This has it, and even more so than all leafy green veggies. It also has those healthy Omega-3 fatty acids, known to prevent heart disease and stroke.

Oh yeah, it's GMO-free as well!

So why not include this in your regular diet by replacing it once in a while with spinach and including it in other recipes. You can put it in salads and sandwiches as well. Purslane can boost your energy while reducing the risk of developmental disorders in children (such as autism, and ADHD).
