Cichorium intybus (Chicory) C. intybus is native to Europe, however it is found in many parts of the world. History has seen many uses for this plant. It has been used as a coffee substitute, a sweetner, as salad greens, and for a variety of medicinal purposes. Confederate soldiers during the American Civil War often resorted to using chicory because coffee was in short supply. Chicory "coffee" tastes like coffee but with a slightly woody and nutty flavor. The roots contains inulin, a soluble fiber. Studies suggest inulin can benefit the digestive system, the immune system, and the regulation of blood glucose levels. ---------------------------------------------------- #chicory #nature_brilliance #nature #purple #light #hiking #landscape #nature_good #adventure #adventurer #fall #sky #nature_lovers #sun #beautiful #flower_magic #iloveplants #plants #plantlove #beauty #photooftheday #nature_captures #macrophotography #macro_ig #flower_perfection #floral_shots #ig_flowers #ig_nature #photomacro #nature_perfection
