Culver Root (Veronicastrum virgincum)
Definition: Used for generations by Native Americans, this herb helps expel old debris from the bowel, boosts liver function, clears congestion and is considered a natural relaxant.
Applications: Blood purifier, constipation, diarrhea, colon congestion, liver ailments and stomach disorders.
Scientific Updates: Culver root works chiefly on the intestines that are chronically constipated due to poor biliary flow. It has a mild action without causing the depression of physical strength common with many other purgative medicines. Leptandrin excites the liver gently and promotes the secretion of bile without irritating the bowels.
Complementary Agents: Buckthorn, cascara sagrada, red raspberry, ginger, fennel, black walnut, quassia, garlic, couch grass, acidophilus, vitamin C, bioflavonoids, vitamin A, B-complex, marine lipids, and blue-green algae.
