Dr. Fevzi Özgönül gave important information about the subject. Özgönül said, “Leek, which is among the important foods of Mediterranean cuisine, is a very useful food item especially for our kidneys and digestive system. E.g; Leek salad is the perfect solution for those with severe constipation. We live in days when vegetables such as cabbage, leek, celery, spinach and cauliflower are abundant. Each of these vegetables is a separate source of healing and health. But today we even forget the existence of such foods. One of the vegetables that we do not appreciate today is "Leek". The health source of this vegetable is a very rich food in potassium, calcium, iron and phosphorus. It also contains a lot of vitamins A, B1, B2 C and E. In addition to all these features, leek helps your kidneys to work comfortably and also prevents the formation of kidney stones thanks to the active substance that prevents the formation of stones. "
Unable to count the benefits of leeks, Dr. Fevzi Özgönül continued his words as follows; Leek ensures regular and comfortable functioning of the gallbladder. It is diuretic. Syrup softens the chest, stops coughing. It removes loss of appetite. It is good for stomach ailments. It is beneficial in rheumatism, joint pain, arteriosclerosis, kidney diseases, uremia and urinary retention. Its juice is beneficial for acne and blemishes on the face. It strengthens the nerves. It is useful for hemorrhoids. It is also used in bee sting.
Leek food, which will be consumed frequently, will both regulate the intestinal flora and will gradually eliminate constipation. If constipation is not based on a biological cause, it is necessary to change the diet.
Now let's get to the recipe of leek salad that we will recommend to those who have constipation problems;
- Green stalk of leek
- Hot water
- Olive oil
- Rock salt
Wash the green stalks of the leek thoroughly, then chop it in 4 finger thickness, rub it with a pinch of rock salt in a bowl, pour hot water on it, wait 5 minutes, strain the water, Then squeeze lemon and add olive oil and consume it like a salad.
