FAQs about purslane
Purslane and portulaca are different species, but they're closely related. People sometimes call portucala ornamental purslane, moss rose purslane, rock rose, Mexican rose, or sun rose. The leaves have a more pointed shape than common purslane, and the flowers can be red, orange, oink, or white as well as yellow. People often use it as a decorative plant or houseplant. Most people don't eat it because of its bitter taste.
Some other plants also have purslane in the name. Winter purslane, also called miner's lettuce, isn't a succulent, and the stems are much smaller and more delicate. Like purslane, people often eat the wild plant, which was popular among miners during the Gold Rush. Pink purslane, or Siberian miner's lettuce, has spade-shaped leaves and white or pink flowers. Sea purslane and shoreline purslane grow in saltwater marshes and on sandy beaches. Sea purslane has grayish-green leaves, and shoreline purslane has dark red stems.
Purslane is very healthy, and it's one of the most nutrient-dense foods available. It has vitamin A, vitamin C, Vitamin E, iron, magnesium, manganese, calcium, and potassium. You'll also get B vitamins, copper, phosphorus, and folate or folic acid. Vitamin A is important for good vision, and Vitamin C helps support your immune system. Vitamin E protects cell membranes from damage and keeps your skin and hair healthy.
Purslane is also one of the best plant sources of omega-3 fatty acids. These compounds can lower cholesterol and triglycerides and reduce your risk of heart disease and cancer. This plant has melatonin, a hormone that can work as a natural sleep aid as well. People often use the sap to soothe burns or skin irritation.
