To Your Health

We all know the culinary use of chives, but very seldom do we talk about the medicinal use of chives. Did you know that chives contain the following: Essential oils, vitamin A, vitamin C, thiamine, niacin, iron, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, sulphur, allicin, alliin, and trace diosgenin? Neither did I!

It doesn’t stop there folks. Chives may also aid in the veterinary care of your livestock. For instance, did you know that if your cow is constipated, a mixture of chives and bran mash will gently cleanse its stomachs?! For real!
