Mary Susan Loan of Cristo Rey in the foothills of the Belize Alps wrote a very nice article on SORREL for the Ag Report magazine, a quarterly. It is in the May-June Issue No. 17. I believe it can be found online.
Sorrel is rich in antioxidents, vitamins, has 18 out of 25 amino acidS. Mild laxative, helpful for nervous disorders, and excellent for liver, bladder and kidney problems. An excellent proven record of lowering blood pressure. An immune booster ( as antioxidants for sure ), blood cleaner of dead cell accumulated garbage, fights cancer well. All the parts of the SORREL plant are useful.
Soon as I see some, we are going to start using it at home. Usually sells for $2 bz a pound in season.
