Vines & Their Healthy Attributes: A Closer Look

Written by Posted On Thursday, 14 July 2016 02:30

It is common only to attribute beauty and wine to the vine plants of the world, but they are very productive in other areas as well.  Food is one of those areas.  One of the largest industries in the world, food, is a staple of human survival.  Vines provide a wide array of healthy nutrients and delicious sustenance that have just been underrated. 

 

It is time for the world to know a little more information concerning vines.  Wine is not the only thing excellent that comes from vine plants.  There are several other benefits to be reaped from these climbers and weavers. Take a closer look at the many healthy attributes provided from a variety of vine plants.  Here is a quick synopsis of a few individual plants that hold the key to beauty and longevity. 

 

Grape Vines

 

Grape Vines do not naturally produce grapes to make millions of bottles of wine each year.  This plant is much more valuable than that.  Grape leaves are super healthy to eat.  They provide vital vitamins, minerals, and nutrients and have been proven to reduce inflammation and fluid retention in the body. 

 

Grape leaves are rich in antioxidants that will help to maintain youth in the body.  They can be eaten raw or cooked, alone or stuffed with something tasty.  Some have said that eating grape leaves can help keep the memory sharp as well. 

 

Dewberries

 

Dewberries are a close cousin of the Blackberry but sweeter in flavor.  They can be eaten ripe from the vine or cooked in a pie.  They are quite delicious, yet healthy.  They contain high doses of antioxidants, and their leaves can be brewed into a hot tea for relaxation.  Dewberries are also an excellent source of vitamins A and C. 

 

 

Jasmine Flowers

 

The Jasmine plant is known for its glorious aromatic flowers.  This plant smells deliciously calming.  It can be brewed into a tea for a significant effect on weight loss.  It does not immediately fill the person with energy, but it provides relaxation for the arteries and increases blood circulation. 

 

Jasmine as an essential oil is just heavenly.  Blended with the Scent of Ylang-ylang, relaxation is the final destination.  This plant has been used for centuries for its medicinal properties as an oil.  There is no reason not to invest a bit of time into what benefits this flower can produce. 

 

Raspberries

 

Raspberries are not only very delicious; they are a super fruit!  These tiny, powerful berries are packed full of vitamins and nutrients.  Raspberries provide antioxidants and are useful in reducing inflammation in the body.  They have been found helpful in the increase of metabolism and have even been proven to decrease the risk of diabetes in those at risk. 

  

Given the long list of health benefits, it is not hard to believe that Raspberries are also useful against certain types of cancer.  It makes perfect sense, though.  If a body is provided with all of these healthy attributes from one tiny berry, then it would certainly be at a lower risk for developing and complicated conditions.
