This herb is highly nutritious as it has rich contents of starch & sugars.

Field Bindweed, especially its leaves are made into a tisane which is used internally as a laxative and for fevers, to promote sweating and so reduce the temperature, and externally to put on wounds.

A cold infusion from the leaves of this plant is laxative, can slow profuse bleeding during menses, and can be applied as a wash for spider bites.

A tea made from the flowers is believed to exhibit antibacterial & antifungal  properties against a broad spectrum of microbes, including E. coli, salmonella, species & candida albicans.

Bindweed also finds its therapeutic use for treating the effects of stress.

Bindweed also exhibits actions similar to that of anti-diabetic medications as it is considered to inhibit the action of beta-glucosidase & alpha galctosidase. This, in turn, aids in lesser absorption of carbohydrates into the intestine, thus checking the blood sugar levels.

Medicinally, bindweed is taken in three different forms - decoction, powdered rootstock & juice. For the decoction add 1 tsp of the dried flowering bindweed plant in 250 ml water & bring it to boil. The normal dosage of this decoction is 1 tbsp taken once when required.
People who are enduring stomach ache, problems related to the intestine, for instance, appendicitis, obstruction, Crohn's disease, colitis or irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) should avoid using this herb. In addition, this herbal medicine should never be given to women during pregnancy or breast-feeding mothers. Excessive dosage may result in constipation & other ailments. In any case you should consult with your healthcare doctor before using any herb especially if you’re taking other medications or having health problems.
