Ramsons, Wild garlic or Allium ursinum is a perennial herb bulbous family Alliaceae.
Allium ursinum in Latin is a fresh and shaded undergrowth plant 30 to 50 cm high.
It has white, star-shaped, white flowers during the spring.
Ramsons seeds of the bears are small and of black color, they resemble that of the black cumin.
This plant returns to vegetative rest as early as June, the foliage yellowed and remains at rest until the appearance of the new leaves at the beginning of March.
When the foliage is slightly wrinkled, it gives off a strong smell of garlic.
The bulb is eaten like garlic except that it is much more pungent and strong in taste.
Ramsons leaves are eaten as an omelette during the spring.
Wild garlic is a very ancient medicinal plant known to the Celts and Germans.
Remains have been found in Neolithic dwellings.
We eat wild garlic medicine to lower blood pressure just like the curry tree or goji berry.
This plant is also effective for treating asthma and bronchitis.
In recent years, wild garlic has regained popularity thanks to its high vitamin C content and its slimming properties.
The juice would help to lose weight.
