Mimosa pudica could support your wellness in a dozen ways — and then some. Its sticky seeds are becoming a functional medicine favorite in parasite cleanses. But that’s just the beginning of what this herb could offer. Scientists are testing other parts of the plant and finding benefits for asthma, memory, skin, and more.

Mimosa pudicais kind of like an entire natural pharmacy in a single plant. Ayurvedic practitioners have used it for numerous ailments since ancient times. Now, studies are confirming its benefits for everything from killing parasites to healing wounds.
