Bistort

Descrizione

Polygonum bistorta - Fam. Polygonaceae

Species characteristic of wet mountain meadows. We use its rhizomes, dense in tannins, amides and proteins. 

Traditional medicine suggested its use to contrast diarrhoea, as a mouthwash component to disinfect the oral cavity and, for external use, to cure wounds and ulcers.
