Nasturtium is an edible flowering plant that not only has a high concentration of Vitamin C, but also has been considered a fast acting natural antibiotic by Meso-Americans for a very long time.
I also learned that eating a couple of the peppery leaves at the onset of a cold or flu can potentially instantaneously heal. The Nasturtium is considered a gentle and natural antibiotic and is believed to have major healing effects when eating 1 or 2 leaves- three times a day.
