Asian Penny wort for lunch Today

Had Asian Penny wort for lunch today, after a gap of 8 years. Everyone should try it out once in a while, at least for its medicinal properties.

Medicinal uses: Penny wort is used for purifying the blood and curing nervous conditions and is said to be ‘good for the eyes’. It is also one of the herbs used in tonics to improve the memory. Eating 2 leaves each day is said to relieve the pain of arthritis and it is sold in plant nurseries as ‘the arthritis herb’.
