Rhubarb Root was introduced into Europe from China in 1778 before being introduced in America at the end of the eighteenth century.The most prominent vitamin in rhubarb is actually vitamin K, and while it doesn’t often get as much attention as some of the other vitamins, Vitamin K plays a very significant role in brain and neuronal health. It can prevent the oxidation of brain cells and stimulates cognitive activity, thereby helping to delay or even prevent the onset of Alzheimer’s disease. Rhubarb is one of the best sources of vitamin C that helps to boost immune system. During the spring season the immune system tends to be weaker so including some Vitamin C rich foods in your daily diet is a must. Moreover, vitamin C is a key nutrient in collagen production. The trace amounts of copper and iron found in rhubarb are enough to stimulate the production of new red blood cells, increasing the total RBC count in the body and increasing oxygenation of essential areas of the body, thereby improving their function and boosting the overall metabolism of the body. Diabetic people can boost their health with rhubarb. The herb consists of fiber that avoids absorption of sugar, thus regulating blood sugar levels. It is a low glycemic index herb quite helpful for controlling diabetes. Thanks to its great laxative properties, rhubarb can help you prevent and cope with constipation.
