Erigeron Annuus and Erigeron Philadelphica
I am have written this for educational purposes. If in doubt don’t, make certain you know your plants. This is not medical advice and should not be taken as such.
Known as daisy fleabane. They look very similar and have the same taste and health benefits. They are difficult to tell apart and I often confuse them. So I am not sure which I have picutures of but I like the peppery taste. The older they get the hotter they get. The flowers and roots are very hot almost as hot as a habenaro but the burning does not last as long. It taste like for hot black pepper. The younger the plant the milder it is. Many claim you should not eat the roots.
Has been shown to be effective against cancer and fungal infection.
Phytochemicals in fleabane.
Has neuroprotective properties.
Helps prevent aging by inhibiting AGEs.
Prevents damage from oxidative stress.
Contain pyromeconic acid which is very effective against the flu virus.
