Melilot (scientific name Melilotus officinalis) is also commonly known as cabbage grass or yellow cabbage. It is part of the Fabaceae family, and is a biennial herbaceous plant very widespread in arid and uncultivated land, and is often found along roads and paths. The fruit is a greenish-black pod. The leaves and flowering tops have a good concentration of flavonoids, tannins and coumarins: among the latter, in particular, melilotoside (a coumarin glucoside which then transforms into coumarin), which promotes lymphatic drainage.
