The care of the centuries-old chestnut groves is combined with the studies of the herbal tradition: the famous “bread tree” not only gives us tasty, satiating and nutritionally rich fruits, but also the beautiful leaves which, in addition to adorning the majestic foliage of the chestnut trees , have multiple health properties. Chestnut leaves are rich in active ingredients: tannins (astringent action), gums and resins (antiseptic, anti-inflammatory and antispasmodic action) and mineral salts, in particular phosphorus and magnesium (strengthening action).
The period of maximum production of these substances, that is the balsamic period, is just before flowering, in early-mid-May.
