Ligusha, an African Super-Plant


The Most Nutritious Weed Plant in Africa

Ligusha is a root vegetable that grows in the southern part of Africa, particularly in Eswatini (Swaziland) and South Africa. Ligusha is an edible plant with medicinal properties. It is used to treat and cure some ailments, especially those related to the liver, stomach, and kidneys.

Ligusha is one of the most nutritious weed plants in Africa. It has been used for centuries to treat and cure many health problems, especially those that affect older people. The plant grows abundantly in farmers’ plantations, which makes it difficult for people to access it. Furthermore, Ligusha is seasonal in parts of Africa that experience two distinct seasons every year.

Ligusha is rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. It is also a rich source of protein, calcium, and iron. With so many nutrients packed into it, the plant can be used for treating several health conditions, including diabetes and hypertension.
