In the West, chives are commonly thought of and used as a garnish for potatoes and deviled eggs. But the truth is they have great nutritional and medicinal value, making them much more than a simple potato garnish!

Chives are loaded with important nutrients that support bone health, digestive function, heart and immune function. They can even expel intestinal parasites.

Easily grown in your garden or flower pot, they bring a delicate flavor to foods and can help fight viral and bacterial infections, including lung, digestive, and intestinal bacteria that can cause colds, flu, diarrhea, and nausea.

Similar to other members of the family Allium (that includes leek, onions, and garlic), chives contain the compound allicin that helps support heart health by lowering cholesterol and regulating blood pressure.

And there’s even more benefits to chives!!!
