Tree spinach is a large fast growing shrub that is believed to have originated in the Mexican Yucatan Peninsula. It is also known as Chaya and apparently can do some pretty fantastic things.
While this plant is not as well known as you might think, it is praised for all of its incredible health benefits. If you are dealing with anything like headaches, diabetes, or high cholesterol this is the shrub you need in your life. While it sounds too good to be true it isn’t.
