To protect against flu and viruses, wild garlic was consumed fresh, its nostrils were smeared with alcohol tincture of the bulbs and herbs. Infusion of the plant is used to protect against diseases of agricultural plants. Bear onion leaves are recommended to be mixed in to horse feed - when evicted through the skin, the essential oil with its specific odor frightens off the annoying flies.

Ramson: useful properties and contraindications

The distribution area of ​​the grass is quite wide. It can be found from the northern region of the tundra to the Stavropol Territory. It is also widespread in other countries. They gather not only wild-growing grass, but also grow it on household plots.

Biological plant description

Herb plant Állium ursínum or honey onions, refers to perennial plants of the genus Onions (Allium), Amaryllis family. The Latin name of ramson comes from the word "bear" - ursus. And all because the bears like to feast on in the early spring, feeding themselves with vitamins after hibernation.

Ramson has other names: wild onion, wild garlic, bulb. Other species of onions, such as the victorious onions and the garlic onions, growing in the Siberian territories, are also considered to be the same name. In the Chita region wild onion grows in the wild. Looks like a plant, you can look at the photo:

Triangular stem up to 1 cm in diameter, can grow up to 50 cm in height, (depending on conditions). Around its base are the leaves. Up to five cm wide, always shorter than the stem itself, with an oblong shape (or lanceolate).

Small flowers with white petals, collected in an umbrella inflorescence, like a half ball. The plant blooms in May. The umbrella is framed by a perianth, the leaves of which are almost white or with a green tint, up to 12 mm long. Each flower forms a fruit - a box in which numerous seeds ripen.

The bulb is small, its thickness is slightly more than one centimeter, with roots extending from the base.

Where is growing. Bear bow is common in Central, Southern and Northern Europe and occupies the entire forest zone of Russia. Loves shady wet places. For growth favorable air temperature of 12 - 17 degrees in positive territory. Higher temperatures and dry air are reflected in the taste of onions.

Reproduction. Despite the fact that the plant bulb. It propagates in nature with seeds. Yes, and cultivated plants are also grown from seed. Bulb breeding is not practiced.

What is included in the chemical composition

The characteristic smell of garlic, plant gives substance Allyn glycoside and essential oils. The oils evaporate effectively, even the plants do not tolerate its neighborhoods and rarely grow nearby.

Of the number of vitamins, vitamin C is more abundant. Scientists note that its presence depends on the place of growth of the plant. The higher above sea level it grows, the greater the amount of ascorbic acid.

The composition contains minerals, amino acids, phytoncides. The composition is presented in the table:

Useful properties of wild garlic

Her healing properties are unusual. Even the ancient Romans used the plant to cleanse the blood of toxins, harmful substances and poisons. Treated with wild bear onions boils, minor abrasions and cuts. Women used leaf juice to lighten skin from freckles and age spots. The use of leaves in food strengthened hair and stopped their loss.

In Russia, wild garlic was also used in the national treatment of cholera and plague, used to treat bronchitis, rhinitis, and sinusitis.

Its properties are widely known in folk medicine:

  • antimicrobial,
  • anti-bite
  • antioxidant,
  • anti-sclerotic,
  • tonic
  • expectorant
  • antispasmodic,
  • diuretic,
  • detoxification,
  • antihelminthic

Modern research confirms the antibiotic effectiveness of the plant in improving the health and cure of many human diseases. The product selectively inhibits the development and growth of bacteria, microscopic fungi. Regular use helps:

When curing diseases of the respiratory system. Relieves coughing spells. Facilitates the discharge of accumulated sputum in the bronchi and pulmonary tract. Helps to cope with shortness of breath. Treats antritis and runny nose.

It activates the work of the digestive system. Enhances the secretion of gastric juice and intestinal peristalsis. Improves appetite and metabolism, increases the body's defenses

Affects the recovery of the heart and blood vessels, strengthens muscle tissue and blood vessels (especially coronary). Reduces blood pressure, reduces the content of cholesterol harmful in the blood, which is the prevention of the development of atherosclerosis,

It is believed that the plant is useful for men, because it strengthens male power.

Differs plant content of large amounts of vitamin C, much more than citrus fruits. Just a few leaves of wild garlic cover the daily need of this vitamin.

The composition and beneficial properties of wild garlic

In addition to the already mentioned ascorbic acid, the benefit of wild garlic is provided by the glycoside allicin. Apparently, glycosides perform in plants the function of stimulants of various metabolic units. But in general, this class of substances has not been studied very well, there are difficulties even with its classification. But allicin is directly responsible for the characteristic smell of garlic and garlic leaves. In the whole garlic clove and wild garlic leaves / bulbs, it is contained in the form of alliin glycoside, however, if damaged, it quickly turns into allicin.

This glycoside is interesting for its antibiotic properties in relation to bacteria, fungi, some protozoa, a number of viruses and parasitic microorganisms. At the same time, it must be remembered that the use of allicin in excess forms almost the only consistently fixed harm of wild garlic and garlic with onions - irritation of the walls of the digestive tract, since it is a very eater (due to which appetite). In addition to allicin with vitamin C, the chemical composition of ramson leaves includes the following compounds.

  • Carotene. The precursor of vitamin A (retinol), beneficial to the skin, nails, hair, and critical for the work of the eye retina (its photosensitive elements).
  • Vitamins of group B. Not everything, but five or six basic ones (there are 20 of them in this group) must be found in the plant leaf. Vitamins of group B take an active part in the work of the central nervous system, regulate the basic parameters of metabolism, including glucose metabolism.
  • Vegetable proteins. Not the best replacement for animals, from the point of view of all who adhere to the usual diet, but very valuable for vegetarians with their particular views on the composition of food.
  • Fructose. A variety of fruit sugar that does not require the insulin to be absorbed. The liver also splits it without his participation, forming reserves of glycogen - a glucose depot in the body. Fructose is often used as a sugar substitute in diabetic nutrition, it is used in the creation of ordinary sweet foods and drinks as part of glucose-fructose syrup. It is dangerous in its ability to cause obesity in the liver (fatty hepatosis), but only with regular abuse of it. There is not much of it in the list of wild garlic; therefore, there is no risk of overdose.
  • Phytoncides Compounds with moderate toxicity, which the plant produces to protect against insects, spores / mycelium of fungi and other potential threats.
  • Muramidase Better known as lysozyme. This enzyme is common to the plant and animal kingdom and is responsible for local antibacterial protection. We have it in saliva, breast milk, tear fluid, mucus, lining the stomach wall and intestines.
  • Micro and macro elements. Which, however, in the leaves of ramson is not so much to consider them a complete mineral supplement (especially given the fact that you still can not eat much of it). In addition, their composition in each individual instance of a plant depends on the composition of the soil where it grew.

Areas of use

In cooking, wild garlic leaves are used as a substitute for onions and garlic. Recipes of dishes, focused solely on the addition of a leaf of a plant, are most often found in Caucasian and Western European cuisine. And the use of wild garlic (onion bear) for therapeutic purposes, although it covers a fairly wide range of diseases, has its own specifics. So, indications for the use of ramson leaf indicate its effectiveness in:

  • worms - thanks to allicin, which may create extremely unfavorable conditions for their survival,
  • lice - as well as other parasites, including malarial plasmodium, for which the rams leaf is poisonous,
  • diabetes mellitus - as an activator of digestion, improves metabolism and increases the sensitivity of insulin receptors,
  • diseases of the liver - and the gallbladder, too, because irritating the taste buds and the stomach walls allicin provokes an increased secretion of bile and digestive juices, improves peristalsis.

Possible contradictions

However, all of these appointments look dubious. It is unlikely that the use of ramson leaf for such diseases would be harmful, but it will not give a noticeable improvement. There are four reasons to think so.

  • Effect on potency. Some normalization of sexual function attributed to the action of wild garlic leaves is most likely associated with the effect of B vitamins on the central nervous system, as well as the ability of vitamin C to strengthen the vascular walls, improving, including the quality of erection. But the severity of the effect from taking a sheet of wild garlic here directly depends on the nature of the patient's problems. And since the impotence scenarios are very different, in the vast majority of cases, when receiving a leaf of wild garlic, the patient should expect a maximum of improvement in the peripheral blood circulation throughout the body.
  • The benefits of diet. In the case of any dietary restrictions, adding wild garlic leaves in food is unacceptable, as well as garlic, onions, and other spices with a bitter-tart pungent taste and strong aroma. First, the garlic smell of the plant dramatically increases the appetite. And in conditions when the resulting hunger is forbidden to satisfy, it may end in a breakdown of the diet. Secondly, the likelihood of developing inflammations and erosions of the walls of the stomach / intestines increases, as the burning juice from the leaves of garlic irritates quite strongly.
  • Treatment of alcoholism. Ramson is too weak a detoxification agent to seriously rely on it in the treatment of withdrawal symptoms. Plus, it does not contain any components that can affect the metabolism of ethyl alcohol.
  • Removal of warts. In general, the recent "fashion" to get rid of skin neoplasms at home with folk remedies is dangerous. After all, there is always the risk of the rapid malignancy of growth.


Contraindications wild garlic are the following diseases.

  • Gastritis and ulcers. Judging by the reviews of people suffering from such pathologies of the gastrointestinal tract, it is still impossible to build something with them - even the smell causes disgust and vomiting. In this case, the instinct is right, because the burning juice of the garlic leaf not only sanitizes the patient's digestive tract (positive effect), but also eats away the edges of existing erosion, at times increasing pain and spasms.
  • Hyperacidosis. Regardless of what caused increased acidity in the patient, ramson will increase it. It enhances the secretion of all digestive environments (both gastric acid and alkali of the duodenum) due to irritation of the taste buds and the walls of the stomach / intestines.
  • Pancreatitis. Alkaline synthesis for the duodenum, as well as insulin, is performed by the pancreas. If she is inflamed, she cannot work even in normal mode - not that accelerated. And stimulation of appetite and peristalsis with the help of fragrant rams leaves will require it to increase the synthesis of pancreatic juice.
  • Cholecystitis. As you know, we are talking about inflammation of the gallbladder caused by gallstones or accompanied by their formation. At the same time there are often difficulties in the outflow of bile, the movement of stones and the blockage of bile ducts by them. And all the bitter, spicy, spicy and other appetite stimulating spices, including wild garlic leaves, have a pronounced choleretic effect.

Side effect

It is necessary to pay tribute to the ramson leaf: the side effects of its even prolonged ingestion are almost not observed. The most serious of them comes down to allergic reactions, since the plant is saturated with vitamin C - a strong allergen. Nevertheless, there is also an individual intolerance, say, at the level of dislike for garlic and its smell.

You should also be careful with the use of wild garlic during pregnancy and breastfeeding. In general, it does not apply to poisonous plants, and therefore should be safe for the fetus. However, allicin in the composition of ramson leaf does not change its properties during digestion and even after entering the blood. And he has the properties of an antibiotic, which is hardly necessary for the fetus or child while he is healthy.

Also, the plant has the popular names of censli or kalba. The etymology of these words is not very clear. The ancients used the healing properties of this plant. And later, when scientists learned how to determine the chemical composition of plants, it turned out that this herb has its own qualities due to the optimal combination of organic and mineral substances that make up the cell sap. The organic component is represented by acids, in particular ascorbic (vitamin C) and citric, fiber, flavonoids, phytoncides, vitamins A, B, and also odorous essential substances.

Mineral salts, which are suppliers of phosphorus, manganese, magnesium, potassium, copper and sulfur ions, are dissolved in the cell sap. Ramsons grows predominantly on the outskirts of the mountains, as well as in moist shady forests. Its flowers are a valuable raw material for honey bees, therefore wild garlic is indirectly involved in the production of honey and its products.

This plant is used in food mainly in the southern countries. Regarding our country, the use of wild garlic is particularly active in the Caucasus. In countries of the European region, Italy is notable for its love for this product, where the bear bow is a part of one of the pesto varieties. Almost all parts of a plant, except roots and flowers, are edible and useful. The grass is allowed to sour, pickle or pickle, but the maximum benefit is manifested when using wild garlic bulbs in its pure form. In addition, both fresh and scalded, this vegetable is used in hot dishes and cold snacks.

Therefore, wild garlic has a beneficial effect on blood vessels and is a prophylactic agent that protects against atherosclerosis and hypertension. In addition, the use of wild garlic is useful for men to improve potency, which is associated with its influence on the intensity of blood circulation.

This plant, included in the composition of health food, as well as used in the form of tinctures, has a therapeutic and prophylactic effect on the organs of the gastrointestinal tract.

Essential oils that are part of this plant, determine the properties that improve the motility of different parts of the intestine. Also in folk medicine since ancient times, wild garlic has been used as a means of expelling parasitic worms from the human body. The vegetable is obliged by these useful qualities to essential oils containing in it. This plant is used as an anti-inflammatory agent for diseases of the stomach and different parts of the intestine. It is recommended to use the following tincture.
