Sunflower Petals Cut
Sunflower Petals flavor is unique, described as bittersweet or a little nutty. They make a nice contrast to other flavors in salads. Sunflower seeds and oil extracted from it have been appreciated for years. Few people know that sunflower flowers also have a positive effect on health.
Health benefits: In natural medicine, Sunflower Petals are considered an antipyretic. Bitter compounds contained in Sunflower Petals slightly increase the secretion of gastric juice and improve digestion and absorption of food, therefore decoctions are also recommended for people with stomach problems. Decoctions of Sunflower Petals applied externally facilitate the absorption of strokes and petechiae as well as local edema caused by injuries or sprains, which is why modern phytotherapy recommends their use locally for bloody petechiae, bruises, hematomas, epidermal damage, as well as for dermatitis, acne and pruritus.
