    Mucilage Heals Wounds

    I came across this article today. Basically, sundew mucilage is the perfect substance to act as a biodegradable "scaffold" for helping in wound healing. It perfectly positions cells for growth and is flexible enough to expand with them.

    That's awesome, I always knew they had medicinal uses but never researched it much. They do a lot more than that though I know.
