What are the main properties of figs?
Figs have a good effect on the gastrointestinal tract, normalize stomach acidity and gastric disorders, relieve the symptoms of heartburn, gastritis, gastric and duodenal ulcers. Fresh ripe fruits are very good for health, have a pleasant taste, are considered by many people to be delicious. Those who have certain diseases in the oral cavity can use such fruits as medicine because through the nutrients they contain they can reduce inflammation and symptoms of diseases of the throat and mouth. Both the fruits have medicinal properties and the leaves of the tree.
An infusion is prepared from the leaves that helps calm the cough and relieve circulatory diseases. The infusion is made quite simply from 30 g of fig leaves added to a liter of boiling water, infuse for 5-10 minutes, strain and then drink a little, between meals, in small sips. As I said above, the fig has a specific, milky sap, which, if collected mainly from young branches, can be used in the treatment of warts and weeds. For burns and boils, very well ripened fruits are used, in the form of poultices, but before that they must be kept a little in warm water or milk.
