Typical uses of Leptandra virginica

Special features: This root, when fresh, is a somewhat acrid cathartic; but drying dissipates its harshness, and it is then an almost pure relaxant. Its action is mild and very slow the cathartic result rarely being obtained from a common dose in less than ten hours, and sometimes not for eighteen hours.

Culinary use: NA

Ornamental use: The plant is used for an ornamental purpose.

Medicinal use: The stomach as an organ feels its impression; as is made known by a slight sense of nausea it usually occasions, and which sometimes is quite unpleasant and continues for several hours.

Note: Please consult your health expert.
