How Can This Ayurvedic Herb Supplement Make You Feel Great?
"Among all remedies that arrest bleeding, clear heat and heal ulcers, Plantain is foremost, or hardly surpassed at all. This is because it dries with biting or sharpness, and clears heat without causing heaviness or stupefaction." - Galen (Source: Holmes)
Plantain is a lymphatic decongestant for stagnant blood.
Lance leaf plantain (Plantago lanceolata) is more effective for respirator, infectious, and allergic conditions. Round leaf plantain (Plantago major) is preferred for intestinal and urinary conditions.
