Herb of the Week: Cleavers

20170322_122106

 

Herbalists have long regarded cleavers as a valuable lymphatic tonic and diuretic. The lymph system is the body’s mechanism to wash tissues of toxins, passing them back into the bloodstream to be cleansed by the liver and kidneys. This cleansing action makes cleavers useful in treating conditions like psoriasis and arthritis, which benefit from purifying the blood.

Cleavers is a reliable diuretic used to help clean gravel and urinary stones and to treat urinary infections. In cats, these actions make cleavers a safe long-term aid in the treatment of feline lower urinary tract disease (FLUTD), and the herb may also be useful for chronic low-grade kidney inflammation.2 In studies cleavers extract lowered blood pressure without slowing heart rate or having any health-threatening side effects.

Cleavers is a coffee relative, and the roasted seeds are used as a coffee substitute. The young leaves can be eaten like spinach.

Preparation Methods & Dosage : Herbal tea or 1/2 teaspoon of a liquid extract three times a day.

Cleavers Side Effects: Cleavers is considered a safe herb.

 

Galium aparine
Plant Description:
The bristle-covered fruit will latch onto (cleave)animals who brush by, hence one of its names, catchweed. Geese love it, so the name goosegrass. Native to North America and found in all the lower 48 states and Alaska.

History and Traditions & Folklore:

It is under the dominion of the Moon. The juice of the herb and the seed together taken in wine, helpeth those bitten with an adder, by preserving the heart from the venom. It is familiarly taken in broth, to keep them lean and lank that are apt to grow fat.
Nicholas Culpeper, 1653
