Eggplant – Tips for my garden


Natural herbs and fruits

Nature is not only that set of species of animals, plants and insects that fills the world around us; this definition, although accurate, is very reductionist and disrespectful of this “magic”, this atmosphere that permeates all of nature and has an enormous effect on human beings. Indeed, despite the fact that the historical trend says that man is increasingly transferring his interests from nature to the city, the intrinsic, almost genetic link between human beings and nature remains: very often there is hides in us because it is dominated by other interests, because “this is not the time”, but it never goes out and emerges dominant with every jolt. In fact, it is no coincidence that even when you nervously go to a place of work, you are ecstatic and enchanted by the sight of a magnificent landscape: nature always manages to kidnap us, and it does so with the beauty of the places created but also with the wonder of the animal species that inhabit it (and a wonderful example of this are the flocks of swallows that punctually delight us with their choreography at each change of season). Among these species, vegetables are among the best for making us happy in many ways: flowers for their colors and scents, trees for their beauty, fruits for their authenticity and the many beneficial substances, herbs because they help for our health.


Nature, as we can see every day, is full of resources, full of beautiful things that it can offer us in the most disparate forms and situations. Because man has never missed the possibility of having positive gratifications by exploiting these natural gifts, and from there was born a real discipline, almost a science, which however does not use many experiments, formulas and doctors, but is based on experience. of our predecessors and in the laboratory tests that prove the positive principles: herbal medicine. While herbal medicine (and here we are clarifying a point of doubt of many people) is the ability to catalog, organize and collect all that is known about plants both in terms of species and quality, herbal medicine is the ability to harness this knowledge to do good for your body, in many different cases. Today, this discipline (it would not be correct to call it science because it is something else, although it uses technical and scientific evidence) has assumed a role of paramount importance in both from a commercial point of view, because taking care of the body and health through natural remedies has become a generalized trend, especially in the most industrialized countries.


Nature is a phenomenal set of positive substances for itself and for our body, so we can get nutrients from almost anything. Among the many things in this article, we focus on the very famous and widespread eggplant plant: through its elongated fruits and dark purple color, it is a great protagonist of Italian culinary culture, or of that famous diet Mediterranean which is universally recognized for its authenticity. . Look good, the berenjena is the protagonist of the point of view alimenticio y por tanto también fitoterapéutico, ya que comer bien es cuidar tu cuerpo y por eso mencionaremos los positive aspects: the berenjena is muy pobre en azúcares y calories, por lo que es good. for all diets; It is also composed almost entirely of water (the percentage varies between eighty and ninety percent) and therefore it also helps to hydrate the body. In addition, its content of vitamins and other substances helps reduce bad cholesterol in our blood, which is always positive because it means greater functionality of the entire cardiovascular system.

Eggplant and herbal medicine

The remarkable positive actions that eggplant has on our body seen in the previous paragraph are linked to its consumption as food; obviously there is much more, because the phytotherapeutic qualities of eggplant are also valid for external use: the internal pulp, peeled and rinsed, is perfect for soothing the skin, reducing burns and even itching, and can be used by example for redness of irritation, externally for hemorrhoids, for mosquito bites especially as a reminder. On the other hand, products in the form of extracts and herbal teas (although very rare in Italy due to their food consumption, while in countries like the United States, where there is no culinary culture vegetables, they are widespread) eggplant are distinguished by good diuretic power, for the normalization of liver function and also for generic purification understood as the elimination of toxins accumulated in daily life. The best eggplant connoisseurs will know that the skin contains many of the properties described above (as is often the case with fruits such as apples, apricots and others) and in fact the whole fruit is used in extract production process, only deprived of the green part of connection with the plant itself.
