Chickweed contains various chemical components that may assist the body in different ways. Here are a few of the benefits you can get from it:

In traditional Indian medicine, it is used as a preventive measure for obesity. Studies show that the intake of chickweed had positive effects on food consumption behavior, adiposity index and body weight in mice.
- Functions as an expectorant. Chickweed may help ease respiratory conditions, such as tuberculosis, whooping cough, and the flu. It soothes the bronchial tubes and the lungs to help expel mucus or phlegm. This is due to its saponins, which help increase the permeability of the mucous membranes.
