Historically, restharrow root is highly regarded as a natural and gentle diuretic. It is still believed to be a valuable herb for the bladder, with some people crediting restharrow root as a supplement for supporting urinary tract health.
Restharrow has been used for skin disorders, such as eczema, skin ulcers, acne and acts as a great skin toner.
Restharrow has been long touted in traditional medicine as a remedy for kidney stones, nephritis, bladder infections, inflammation and bladder stones.
The phytochemicals found in restharrow root include the flavonoid ononin and the polyphenols tannin and triterpenes. These compounds behave as antioxidants, possibly explaining its reputation for protecting against aging and promoting good health.
One herb that's lesser known to Western culture is the restharrow plant, also known as Ononis spinosa. First described and written about in the year 4 BC by Greek philosopher Theophrastus, this hardy and thorny perennial is found throughout the coastal Mediterranean nations of Europe, Northern Africa, and Western Asia. The plant has a resilient, ticketed, and thorny structure. It was said to have been difficult to harvest and caused the plows (harrow) to become stuck, and come to a rest -- hence the name, "restharrow".
Restharrow root tincture has been used by cultures all over the world for different healing benefits; science is just now beginning to determine the efficacy of the plant's traditional use. Historical uses of restharrow root include support for kidney, urinary tract, and bladder health.
Dosage: 20-30 drops, 3 times a day.
Precautions: A flushing therapy with Restharrow must not be performed if there is oedema due to impaired heart and kidney function. The intake of fluids should be high with a flushing therapy.
