Perhaps not too well known today, horseradish is a plant that has actually been in the area for more than a thousand years, and is native to nearby south-eastern Europe. Its diffusion also in the rest of the European territory is linked to its versatility and also to its beneficial properties, already known at the time, as evidenced by the many recipes based on horseradish. The plant's roots and rhizome are usually used, which are often found as aromas or seasonings in countless recipes handed down by local tradition. Among the main properties that, especially in the centuries ago, made it a precious plant, there is the strong presence of vitamin C: today taken simply to combat colds and seasonal flu or strengthen the immune system, in the past centuries it was an important resource against the scurvy, a dangerous disease caused precisely by the lack of vitamin C. Today, fortunately, horseradish has lost this primary function, but it remains an effective source of vitamins and a useful natural antibiotic. In cooking, horseradish is used for sauces intended to dress meats or salads, as the acrid taste is somewhat reminiscent of mustard. It is therefore a food that may not please everyone, but which is not only applied for internal use: it is in fact used today more frequently as a basis for the creation of effective products for external use, such as creams against sunburn and erythema. Despite its effectiveness, attention must be paid to consumption, which should not be carried out by people prone to gastrointestinal problems, which in this case could be acute.
Active ingredients and benefits
Among the main beneficial effects recognized to horseradish there is, as we have seen, the strong presence of vitamin C, which is optimal for the body and in particular for the immune system. But the benefits associated with this plant do not end there: horseradish can also prove to be an effective antibiotic, as well as an expectorant and purifier for the respiratory system. The horseradish purifier, of which rhizome and roots are mainly used, can also be useful for the digestive system, although, as we have seen, not suitable for all subjects. For external use, extracts of the plant are effective against erythema, burns and inflammation of the skin. Even in case of external use, however, it is necessary to be careful: subjects particularly sensitive to its components and its active ingredients could in fact develop a sense of nausea, headache, burning in the eyes. In this case it is necessary to suspend the treatment to start looking for an equally effective herbal remedy. Its use is also not recommended for pregnant women.
Although not particularly widespread, partly because it is a plant that does not offer particular decorative potential, horseradish is particularly simple to grow on our territory and does not require too much care and attention, partly because it originates from lands with similar characteristics and climates. to the Italian ones, partly because they are naturally able to adapt to different situations and conditions. The few conditions required are a sunny position and space to be able to grow the roots in depth: the development of horseradish is in fact such that vertical space in the ground is necessary, while on the surface only the leaves that grow from the top sprout and can be exploited. for salads and dressings. The roots are then usually harvested in autumn, with the help of suitable tools: they can reach even thirty cm in depth. For multiplication, it is sufficient to bury part of a briar about five cm deep: it is possible to carry out this operation in a pot, but it is then necessary to move it into the ground so that the plant has sufficient space for growth.
Horseradish: Commercial products
Horseradish is found on the market in the form of a base substance of creams and products for external use, mainly aimed at solving problems related to the skin. However, there are many systems of consumption for internal use, which can be aimed at various types of disturbances. The parts containing the greatest amount of active ingredient are certainly the roots and the rhizome: they are also the most tasty parts. However, the leaves are also widely used, for example in the consumption of salads made from mixed herbs, or boiled and eaten for their vermifuge action. Alongside vitamin C, horseradish offers a vast amount of calcium, sodium and magnesium, all of which are important substances for an individual's physical well-being. Finally, horseradish can be found as a base for antibiotic or expectorant syrups. The consumption in the culinary field, even in the presence of particular ailments, finally offers facilitations for digestion and further protection for the intestine.
Horseradish (Armoracia rusticana) is one of the oldest crops and often grows wild along the paths. The plant is considered a pointer plant for fallow gardens. Even after many years, when the flower beds have long since been dug, the horseradish shows that a vegetable garden had previously been created in its surroundings. The plant with sharp roots belongs to the Kreuzblütengewächse family (Brassicaceae).
Horseradish has been cultivated since the 12th century. Already Hildegard von Bingen mentions in their botanical writings the value of sharp aromatic roots as medicinal and spicy plants. Kren is called horseradish in Austria. The word "Krenas" comes from the Slavic and means "to cry" and is probably due to the fact that the eyes tear when rubbing the fresh - onion-like - tear poles. It is worth growing horseradish in the garden, because only the freshly dug bars still contain all the aromas and explain their fine sharpness in the kitchen. Grated horseradish is eaten with beef, sausages or smoked fish.
Folk flu remedies
Home cures or folk remedies have been recorded for centuries. Some remedies were rather unpleasant and medically unfounded. Ancient cultures relied on monkey shares, bat blood, lizard soup and a host of unsightly components to cure diseases. Fortunately, most of the truly odd cures disappeared over time. However, several traditional folk remedies can offer real help for colds and flu. You might also be surprised to find a couple of popular therapies already in fighting flu-medicine.
Long part of Chinese and Indian cultural healing practices, herbs play an important role in stimulating immune responses, improving respiratory distress or having strong antiseptic properties. Some to try are thyme, fennel and fenugreek. Find brewed tea (available at most health food stores) or add fresh herbs to boiling water and breathe in the steam deeply to bring relief. Flu chest congestion can be helped by these powerful plants.
Garlic, ginger, and horseradish have all been part of folklore remedies for generations. Modern studies support the health benefits of garlic by citing its sulfur compounds. This natural infection fighter strengthens the immune system and prevents cell damage. Spicy horseradish flavor can open sinuses and facilitate breathing. Turmeric, another healing spice, brings anti-inflammatory effects and packs an immune punch. Use these freshly grated healing ingredients in foods when you are sick. Add a tablespoon of horseradish to a glass of tomato juice. Put fresh garlic or turmeric in soups. For stomach upset or nausea that accompanies the flu, a cup of ginger tea or a piece of candied ginger can tame the tummy.
As part of Aboriginal tribal healing for colds, eucalyptus was used in steam pits to open sinuses. We now find it in many over-the-counter products for congestion relief, cough drops in Vicks Vaporub Ointment, for the same reasons Native Australians discovered centuries ago. Herbalists also recommend eucalyptus tea as a useful sinus remedy.
Wild Cherry Bark
Native Americans have found the bark of wild cherry or Prunus serotina to be helpful in calming coughs. Once brewed as a tea, it has been reported to soothe the pains of childbirth and digestion as well as release chemicals to quell chronic cough. Now, you will find wild cherry extract in over-the-counter cough medications. A substance called benzaldehyde in wild cherry functions as an expectorant to loosen phlegm, according to James E. Robbers, Ph.D., of Purdue University.
Grandma's chicken soup really had healing properties, scientists now say. Combinations of soup ingredients and heat work as tasty flu medicine. Carrots, celery, onions and garlic all come with high doses of vitamins necessary for the immune system and are common ingredients in chicken broth. The broth adds some needed liquid, which is useful for dehydrated, flu-ridden patients. Hot, steamy soup also helps open the nasal passages to make breathing easier.
Many cultures have regarded honey as a wonder drug and folklore remedy for all kinds of conditions. Some studies have suggested honey no longer has healing or soothing properties for the sick. Try a dose of honey in hot tea for a cough or sore throat. Be careful, as babies have a risk of contracting honey botulism, so be sure to only give to babies over 12 months of age.
Lemon and cinnamon
Add some lemon to the flu tea, to vitamin C, a vital infection fighting nutrient. According to tradition, lemon was used to treat depression, fight acne, and treat flu and colds. Cinnamon, highly valued for centuries for its flavor and healing qualities. continues to be a popular flu remedy due to its antiviral qualities. Always remember to be safe when using a natural flu treatment by consulting a doctor before use.
Cultivation and planting
In the bed, horseradish develops into a spreading plant. The edible taproot of the horseradish plant develops several lateral roots, the so-called "feeder", on which it is propagated. You get it at the time of planting in the trade. Make sure the rhizomes are one to two centimeters thick and 25 to 30 centimeters long. If necessary, grab the coolest stake possible from the greengrocer and place them - just like the Fechser - from early April to early May in a sunny corner of the garden about 15 inches deep and slightly sloping into the ground.
The sowing distance is at least 60 centimeters. These seemingly large distances are necessary because a horseradish plant needs a lot of space around it. Then cover the place several centimeters with garden soil or Reifkompost. If you want to harvest larger quantities, plant it in deeply loosened beds with a sufficient layer of compost at a distance of 70-100cm and row spacing of 15-20cm
Horseradish needs constant but moderate moisture to form beautiful roots
Over the millennia, since its invention at the time of Galileo Galilei (who enunciated the principles of motion), different types of motorcycles have been made, which in turn have generated different types of motorcyclists by asexual reproduction. Among the main types universally recognized we find:
Slave trade motorcycle [easy shit | shit]
Mainly used in China, India, Malaysia, and illegally on the border between Abruzzo and Svervegia for the trafficking of Mario Magnotta clones. This vehicle has a purely utilitarian purpose, certainly not recreational (especially for slaves) and has the ability to transport an unlimited number of living beings, even if, above 4-5 individuals, it is necessary to reduce the specific weight of each one to be able to to carry. A common practice to achieve this is dismemberment or, with the politically-correct term used by the sensitive slaveholder, the creative repositioning of the body masses.
Dead motorcycle [easy shit | shit]
Usually filled with beach mats, Super Tele and towels, it is used for the carefree punitive outings of bikers, goths, goths, dooms, Space Marines and other races of metalheads. These slow and heavy motorcycles have very noisy engines (almost exclusively American horses with aerophagia are used to make them) and often have saddlebags that house many garden gnomes ready to help the owner to lift the bike in the unfortunate case of a fall ( before they used the smurfs but they proved to be too fragile in case of a fall, they also stained the road in blue which is not beautiful).
Pocket Motorcycle [easy shit | shit]
Also called folding it is a very small and handy type of Japanese motorcycle, light and available in practical single blisters. It can reach speeds unimaginable for other bikes and can perform incredible decelerations, especially near hairpin bends, SUVs and concrete traffic dividers. It is the type of motorcycle preferred by those looking for speed and handling, as well as inexplicably the most purchased gift to wealthy husbands of a certain age from bored young wives. With the evolution of technologies (such as nanocavals, much smaller horsepower that allow you to put even 130 horsepower into an engine where barely a handful of them used to fit) the speeds reached by these racing cars approach the threshold of the improbable allowing you to go back in time (the paradox of Garibaldi's landing on a Platonic turbocarbon Hayabusa is famous).
Toy motorcycle [easy shit | shit]
Special motorcycles made in search of extreme, innovative or fashionable aesthetic solutions, exclusive to children who can shell out the staggering figures (but also from "no tonight" or "I have my things") necessary for the purchase. These bikes are not suitable for traveling, but they are a great way to show off in front of the bar (hence the name baretto racer) a bit like the Cayenne della Porche, or for journeys of 500 meters, strictly in flip-flops and with an umbrella under your arm, between a second home by the sea and the beach. During these movements it is great joy of the motorcyclist to terrorize, with the roar of the engine and the laser sight of the lighthouse, the little families who go to the sea holding hands, forming a human chain even 6-7 meters wide (in these cases , since toy motorcycles are less robust than dead ones, the shrewd motorcyclist always passes over the youngest child, to avoid damage to the fairing)
Off-road bike [easy shit | shit]
Also known as hog motion, is suitable for rolling in mud (but some disciplines also include other materials of the same color and texture). They can be used on any terrain thanks to the knobbly tires (unlike toy motorcycles which, equipped with heeled tires, are good for strolling along the promenade or waiting on the sidewalks). They juggle without problems on mud, gravel, asphalt, sand, water (currently only the Jesus model), precious gems, teeth, Salerno-Reggio Calabria, beet fields and the backs of bathers lying on towels. The social status of the motorcyclist of this kind is distinguished by the level of mud coverage: the beardless are covered only up to the ankle, the guru they need a mouthpiece to breathe through the layer of mud that covers them. Natural enemy of the off-road motorcyclist is the old man, angry individual who attacks the off-roader with the billhook on sight, due to the skidding in the middle of the tomato field found the night before. In this regard, there are those who argue that the famous crop circles are due to the labyrinthine attacks of a giant off-roader, but all the traps placed to capture the elusive specimen had no effect.
Fifty [easy shit | shit]
Better known as motion of the poor, is the typical moped of the boy or the poor man. Ignition, carburetion and road holding are directly proportional to the amount of snot and / or prayers uttered while driving. Obviously the theft and fire of the fifty are proportional to its value and / or to the frequency of use. The front wheel and the rear wheel are held to the vehicle as a whole by force of mind alone, ie snot and / or prayers from the driver. These mopeds also have a very advanced teleportation system: just leave it in the dark and. disappears !! This functionality was implemented for the first time in the very famous Hello!!. We remind you that the chances of falling increase in proportion to the quantity of alcohol and light and / or heavy drugs taken within 4 6 hours. It is also recalled that i fifties they have a special combined manual / verbal ignition called in technical / mechanical jargon "mmocc'a chi te stramourt vu partoj we trmòn!" (translated that is to say: in the oral orifice of someone who is dead to you, you want to leave, we trimone (man with three hands [[a bitonto also assumes the meaning of masturbation with anal stimulation practiced precisely by 3 hands in the asshole.) , consists in pedaling harder and harder while pronouncing the "magic" words, 45% of the time you need more invocations to get it started, while the other 55% of the time you have to change fifty (some try to change the type of blasphemy but always with poor results).
