Ammi visnaga is a flowering plant in the carrot family commonly found in Eastern Mediterranean. Ammi visnaga is also known as toothpick-plant, toothpickweed, bisnaga, khella and Bishop’s weed. While some take ammi visnaga orally, others use it topically to treat some skin conditions.
In addition to alfalfa’s aforementioned use as livestock feed, it’s believed to provide health benefits to humans when ingested as a dietary supplement, be it in herb or sprout form. It’s widely accepted that alfalfa is a source of vitamins C and K, along with manganese, folate and copper. As a result, it’s thought that alfalfa could help lower cholesterol levels and may function as an antidiabetic agent.
The seeds have a significant antispasmodic effect on the smaller bronchial muscles, as well as dilating the bronchial, urinary, and blood arteries without lowering blood pressure. Asthma, angina, coronary arteriosclerosis, and kidney stones may also be treated with the seeds.
Visnaga may relieve the discomfort produced by blocked kidney stones by relaxing the muscles of the urethra and assisting the stone’s descent into the bladder.
Ammi visnaga is considered to help cure diseases including psoriasis and alopecia areata, as well as improve wound healing when applied directly to the skin.
The seeds are harvested in late summer before they’re fully ripe and are dried for later use.
