A wonderfully adundant plant that unfortunately gets put in the "Its a weed pull it out" basket.... I say unfortunately as this little plant packs a super powered punch of health and medicine! 

Sow-thistle has four times more antioxidants than red wine and twelve times more antioxidants than black tea! 
Its traditional use as an ingredient in spring dishes eaten for health and vitality is supported by its high content of vitamins A, B, C and K.
It is rich in essential fatty acids and minerals and nutrients like zinc, copper, manganese, fibre, calcium and iron.
