While plantain thrives with little requirements, this little plant has served as a nutritious source of food in times of scarcity. The leaf is abundant in vitamins A and B1 and several minerals, including calcium.
Plantain has a long history of use in North America, earning a place in Native American history as well as in English herbal literature dating to the early 1600s.
Today, plantain is used in tea blends. Because the plant contains a compound called aucubin, one of several iridoid glycosides that plants use as defense from pathogens, plantain leaf is also used to make infused oils and tinctures for topical use.
