Couch grass possesses antiseptic and demulcent properties

Couch grass (Agropyron repens) is a diuretic herb that is native to Europe, Asia as well as Northwest Africa. It is a perennial grass and the common names are Witch grass, Wheat grass, Couchgrass, Durva grass, Quack grass, Dog grass, Quick grass, Scutch grass as well as Twitch grass. The main parts used as herbal medicine are the root, rhizome and seeds.

Although it can become quite a nuisance to gardeners and home owners by damaging lawns and choking plants, it is also a natural alternative herbal medicine for some diseases. Some people have to act speedily to weed them out of a garden because it spreads very quickly. However, it is not wise to get rid of all the plants because of its medicinal properties. It can also be dried, stored and used accordingly.

This is one of the herbs that dogs who are ailing, love to eat, preferably the root, hence the name dog grass. This reminds me of my dogs, every now and again, they are seen eating grass of their choice and you know that they are taking medicine.

Couch grass contains vitamin C, vitamin A, and vitamin E, calcium, iron, magnesium, agropyrene as well as amino acids.  It also contains chlorophyll and carbohydrates such as mannitol and inulin, Tricin as well Mucilage.
