Tree Spinach ,Cnidoscolus aconitifolius: raw chaya leaves are toxic as they contain a glucoside that can release toxic cyanide.Cooking for 20-30 minutes will make the leaves safe to eat. and it is good for what it is listed for. Chenopodium giganteum also called tree spinach does not list cyanida . Just make sure you cook it longer than just 5mins. (Source Wikipedia) and a few herb books.Also just because this should be cooked longer ,Some herbs can not be cooked at a high heat or they will not work.. Make sure of what you take and how to take it.
Pros:Herbs used safety are better than Rx drugs.There are 300,000- 500,000 plants in the world and we only have studied under 5000 of them!! what a gift God has given us!! Have been a herbalist and homeopath for over 25 years
Cons: I am not against taking this. Only wondering if this is ,Cnidoscolus aconitifolius or Chenopodium giganteum? and please change the cooking or steeping time if this is Cnidoscolus aconitifolius . Thank you for a GREAT WEB SITE TOO!!!
