Hello dear and appreciated readers, mainly to those plant and nature lovers and flower lovers, welcome back to my blog. Today I want to talk about the properties of a plant with a beautiful flower, or rather a perennial herb, with a woody base, used medicinally since ancient times, Tridax procumbens L.

Tridax procumbens L. is a plant native to Mexico and many other Central American countries, it is mainly found in wet or dry places, in weedy fields and meadows, often in soil completely covered by sand and on the banks of streams or roads, often in wastelands or soils cultivated by man.

This plant has white or yellow three-toothed flowers, it is considered invasive because it produces many Asquenium fruits. It has many properties, for example the fresh or dried plant is used in infusion or decoction through the oral route, to treat allergies, anemias and gastrointestinal conditions such as diarrhea, stomach pain, intestinal parasites and even constipation, It is also used to treat respiratory tract conditions such as bronchitis, colds and fevers, to counteract headaches, diabetes, liver disease, hypertension, and menstrual disorders in women. This wonderful plant is also attributed with depurative, healing and anti-inflammatory properties.
