Heart problems, whooping cough, asthma, menstrual pain, sterility and even cancer – in the treatment of all these conditions, mistletoe has proven its effectiveness.
It is consumed in the form of tea or extract, to which the leaves and branches of the plant are used. They contain vitamins, antioxidants, but also other substances beneficial to the body, such as viscous acid, amines, polypeptides, glycosides, choline and aceticoline. Mistletoe can be consumed in the form of tincture, decoction, infusion, soak, but also in the form of powder.
ATTENTION where to buy mistletoe! Can be toxic
Not every kind of mistletoe is beneficial to the human body, some of which are even toxic. Reason?
Mistletoe is a semiparasitic plant that grows in different trees. For example, mistletoe that grows in linden, willow or poplar is toxic. So, do not buy it on the street if you want to use the plant for medicinal purposes, because you do not know where it grew.
The only way to avoid intoxication is to buy mistletoe, in the form of powder, sachets or even capsules, from pharmacies or from plafar.
