Purslane was studied at POS Pilot Plant Laboratory located on the
campus of the University of Saskatchewan in Saskatoon (Dec. 2000 -
Project #00-781A). The scientific results were that Purslane is high in
fatty acids, including linoleic acid (omega 6), linolenic acid (omega
3), tocophenals (alpha, gamma, and delta), alpha-tocopherol (vitamin E),
beta-carotene, vitamin C, and riboflavin.
It is high in minerals, including phosphorous, zinc, silicon, manganese,
copper, calcium, and magnesium. Other active ingredients found in other

#L57257-1 that Purslane contains Co-enzyme Q-10
 Wenzel et al 1979: Studies concluded that
pectin lowers LDL cholesterol.
 Jones et al 1936 and Flagg et al 1948: In
their studies, found glutathione in Purslane. This antioxidant and
detoxifier synthesized rapidly in the liver, kidneys, and other tissue,
including the gastrointestinal tract.
 Okwuasaba et al 1986: Studies found
Purslane effective as a muscle relaxant.
 Hegnauer, R. 1969: Studies showed that
Purslane contains high amounts of noradrenaline, which is known to
stimulate the adrenal glands, and dopa, which has been widely used to
combat Parkinson's disease.
 Simopoulos, A.P., Norman, H.A., Gillappy, J.B.,
and Duke, J.A. 1992: Studies showed that it is a source of omega-3
fatty acids and antioxidants (j. of the Am. College of Nutr. 11(4):374).

Dietary supplementation with vitamins C and E inhibits invitro oxidation
of lipoprotiens (J. of the Am. College of Nutr. 1993).
 Kubular, D.T. and Tashbekow, I., Katafel, I.,
Ovoschi, 1979: Studies found Purslane rich in protein and
 Miller, T.E., et al 1984: Studies found
Purslane has the best balance and highest concentration of essential
amino acids compared to his other studies.
