Portulaca Oleracea (Purslane) Extract Powder
Purslane (Portulaca oleracea) is a green and leafy wild vegetable. It is found mainly throughout Asia and has been used for centuries for its properties. As it is used today, Purslane is meant mainly to promote general good health and well-being.
Purslane is also one of the few non-meat sources for Omega-3 fatty acids. In fact, it has higher amounts of Alpha-Linoleic acid than spinach.As an added bonus, it is rich in vitamins, minerals, amino acids and antioxidants.

INGREDIENTS & FURTHER INFORMATION
CONCENTRATION OF PURSLANE
This supplement contains 5% Flavones (a type of antioxidant) and has no extraneous fillers of any kind.
PURSLANE SIDE EFFECTS
As long as suggested serving sizes are adhered to, it is unlikely that any negative side effects will be suffered. However, anyone that has had kidney stones in the past should use caution when taking Purslane. Women who are pregnant or nursing should not take this extract.
This supplement’s flavor is described as slightly peppery, so it is recommended that it be added to a flavored beverage of some kind. It may also be taken via capsule form.
This extract is very fine, and dissolves in hot water nicely. I like to use it two to three times a day, 500mg, for mood stabilization. I like to use a powder rather than capsules, because it is absorbed faster.*

My doctor recommended that I purchase Purslane specifically from Bulk Supplements to help with heavy metal toxicity. I add purslane to my protein smoothie each morning.

Was introduced to Purslane many years ago by a Priest from Lebonan as very healthy nuisance weed. Stephen's review covers the benefits so well & I am quite happy to find it in supplement form.
Thanks again BS for another great product & service.*
