Spanish Moss & Anti-Aging

Spanish moss, also known by its scientific name Tillandsia usneoides, is not a member of the moss family, or even native to Spain, but rather belongs to the Bromeliacae family — along with plants like the pineapple. Spanish moss has figured largely for generations in North and South American folk medicine traditions as a treatment for a wide variety of medical problems; several of these problems –particularly diabetes and skin conditions — are believed by many alternative medicine practitioners to be effectively treated by Spanish moss. However, these claims have not been backed by scientific evidence, and Spanish moss use is not advocated by the Food and Drug Administration.
