My daily pictures – Forgotten herbs – The knotgrass

The knotgrass is a humble plant, an unobserved weed, growing on the roadside. But as in the Cinderella fairy tale, humility hides virtues. The knotgrass is a weed rich in active principles, with multiple therapeutic uses. It is one of  the main plant sources of spontaneous flora, from which we can supplement our daily doses of silicon. It also contains tannins, flavones (aviculoaroside, arabinose), mucilages and small amounts of vitamin C.
