The Chinese used Ma Chi Xian or Purslane for hundreds of years and highly value it as a  Medicinal herb of the highest order. Up until recently, In the Western world, this important and effective plant has been considered a nuisance weed. Research and science are now confirming the benefits that were known in ancient China. 


The benefits of this wonderful herb are many, but one that specifically stands out is its high content of fatty acids particularly Omega 3's. Omega 3 has a reknowned place in modern supplements, which obtain it from fish. Purslane is much higher in omega-3 fatty acids than other greens. It contains high amounts of ALA, but also trace amounts of EPA, a more biologically active form of omega-3.


Purslane is rich in various antioxidants and beneficial plant compounds:

  • Vitamin C: Also known as ascorbic acid, vitamin C is an antioxidant that is essential for the maintenance of skin, muscles and bone (7Trusted Source).
  • Vitamin E: It contains high levels of a form of vitamin E called alpha-tocopherol. It may protect cell membranes from damage (7Trusted Source, 8Trusted Source).
  • Vitamin A: It contains beta-carotene, an antioxidant that the body turns into vitamin A. Vitamin A is best known for its role in eye health (7Trusted Source).
  • Glutathione: This important antioxidant may protect cells from damage (7Trusted Source, 9Trusted Source).
  • Melatonin: It also contains melatonin, a hormone that can help you fall asleep. It also has several other benefits (10Trusted Source).
  • Betalain: It synthesizes betalains, antioxidants that have been shown to protect low-density lipoprotein (LDL) particles from damage (11Trusted Source, 12Trusted Source, 13Trusted Source).
