about the herb*


The fresh root is too irritating to be used, although a decoction may be employed with care. The dried root has laxative, cholagogue, and tonic properties. As a laxative and tonic it is very useful in conditions associated with torpidity of the liver. This admirable remedy is one of the ingredients of our Formula No. 99.

Atony of liver, gallbladder and intestines, and enfeebled portal circulation; hepatitis, cholecystitis, and non-obstructive jaundice. Chronic constipation associated with liver congestion. Specific in chronic enteritis. Poor digestion and dyspepsia due to atony of the stomach and liver.

Cautions: Avoid large doses during pregnancy. Discontinue or lower dosage if extract causes abdominal pain.

Herbie's Herbs' tinctures

Herbie’s Herbs tinctures are alcohol-based preparations macerated in 50% distilled cane sugar alcohol at a 1:2 ratio. Read more here

Compared to other methods, alcohol helps extract nearly all active constituents from a herb yielding stronger tinctures that require a lower dose to attain beneficial effects.

Alcohol eliminates the growth of bacteria and mold while preserving the valuable constituents resulting in a much longer shelf life.
