Heals the skin

One of the greatest benefits of plantain leaf is its ability to help damaged or infected skin heal.

Promotes respiratory health

A traditional use for plantain leaf was to ease coughs and other types of respiratory problems. The leaves contain a good amount of mucilage, which helps to soothe, moisten, and protect the throat and respiratory system.

Promotes Liver and Digestive Health

The many benefits of plantain leaf extend to your liver and digestive system. It can help with poor digestion by stimulating your liver and assists the liver in getting toxins out of your body.

The anti-inflammatory and demulcent properties of plantain make it very soothing for your digestive tract. It's thought to help with many types of digestive complaints, including diarrhea.

Draws Out Toxins

Plantain leaf is unique among herbs because of its ability to draw out toxins from your skin and body. It was once used to draw out venom from snake bites and other animal and insect bites. Its drawing action can also be highly effective on stings, whether from an insect or a plant like stinging nettle.

Rich in Nutrients and Boots Immune system

Plantain leaves are packed full of vitamins and other nutrients. They are especially high in vitamins A and C, which can boost immune health and also contain calcium and various minerals.

Apart from benefiting your immune system, plantain is also one of the best "emergency" foods. Because it is nutrient dense, easy to harvest, and prolific, plantain leaves can be used as a food source and enjoyed in many different dishes.
