Healthy Diet – Domestic Immune Boosters

All nutrient-rich foods that are considered to be particularly beneficial for maintaining health and well-being are considered superfoods. The “secret powers” are vitamins, minerals, trace elements, fiber, essential fatty acids and amino acids. Exotic superfoods such as goji berries, chia seeds and spirulina algae are well known. However, our country also has some treasures to offer that are in no way inferior to exotic species in terms of nutrient density.

In addition to “stars” such as linseed, blueberries and aronia, these have unfortunately been forgotten or are even referred to as weeds. The team of dieticians from the hospital of the Barmherzige Brüder Eisenstadt brings unknown Austro superfoods to the curtain on the day of healthy eating on March 7th.

Purslane, ground elder and hemp seeds

Purslane can take root in even the smallest crevices of concrete. This resilience makes them an immune booster. In addition to a lot of vitamin C and omega-3 fatty acids, it also contains minerals. As a result, it has an antibacterial, diuretic and digestive effect. The flower buds can be used in a similar way to capers and are therefore well suited for salads.

Giersch is a weed for gardeners, but it is a vitamin C and magnesium bomb, has an antibacterial and antispasmodic effect. Raw it is reminiscent of parsley, when cooked it is reminiscent of spinach.

Hemp seeds have neither THC nor psychedelic effects, but all the more proteins and minerals. Pressed as oil, peeled in muesli or as flour, they are real powerhouses.
