What kind of apples are you so interesting? I asked my grandmother as a child. it quince, - she answered, - a very healthy apple. But quince jam is a real yummy.
I, of course, tried the quince then to make sure if it really tasted bad. I still don't eat it raw, but I would smell it 24 hours a day, such fragrant fruit... But only recently I decided to ask what useful properties of quince make it popular all over the world. After all, this culture is grown on all continents, except for the Arctic.
So, quince is good for the elderly (and not only) from sclerosis... It's good diuretic and astringent. With different diseases of the heart and blood vessels, pancreatitis, hypertension and anemia, ear diseases recommend eating these pear-like hairy fruits. Their pulp has anti-inflammatory effect.
Quince is eaten with bronchitis and bronchial asthma, tuberculosis and liver diseases. Flatulence and colitis - also in the "track record" of this marvelous fruit. He helps with headaches, has a beneficial effect on the psychological state of a person, improves appetite and bad breath, relieves hangovers... Provitamin A, B vitamins, potassium, sodium, pectins ... What is there in fragrant quince!
The seeds from the fruits are used in cosmetology, and for lotions for eye diseases, burns, skin irritations... And although this is not a complete list of her merits, the sun quince has already earned my deep respect. Now we should wait for autumn and visit grandma :)
