Wild medicinal plants: Pennywort

From being considered a general youthful tonic, to helping lower blood pressure, to helping you think better, Pennywort is considered highly medicinal by many cultures.  I happen to simply like the taste and I appreciate the fact that it's fairly easy to find in the jungle here.  When you find a patch, there is usually quite a bit of it.

I eat it raw usually, but it can be cooked or steeped and made into tea.
