Japanese Knotweed is a significant source of resveratrol (polygonum cuspidatum) and the tinctured or powdered rhizomes are often used as part of a treatment protocol for Lyme and related co-infections; to promote healthy cognitive and cardiovascular functions; and more. Interestingly, Japanese Knotweed’s invasion of our landscape coincides with the increasing prevalence (epidemic) of Lyme disease. And, now there is a potent local source for Japanese Knotweed tincture available in local shops. Please visit the home page to learn more, order Fayston Forager’s Japanese Knotweed Tincture online, and for a list of retailers.
The Mad River Valley has a thriving local economy. Our access to premium-quality locally-grown and/or produced cheeses, produce, meats, beer, butter, wine, alcohols, chocolates, baked goods, herbal products, medicinals, and so much more, is incredibly impressive. Also impressive is the collaborative way local retailers and producers work together to promote each other. Thanks to all of you who are part of this resilient local economy, and also thanks to the many town groups and volunteers that are working to manage Japanese Knotweed without toxic chemicals. Everything is connected and we all are beneficiaries of our collaborative, forward-thinking community.
