Chard and arroche ('Spanish spinach') have the property of softening the body and cause bowel movements. They nourish well and are good against jaundice and for people who have inflamed livers. Especially arroche chills and causes moisture. Chard is better and does not cause as much moisture in the body. Chard leaves placed on wounds draw out pus strongly.

Vnd besunder mölt kelt vnd macht feuchtigkeit. Aber mangolt ist pesserr vnd bringt nit alsouil feuchtigkeit in dem menschen. Mangolt pleter ziehenn serr auff die wundenn gelegt.
