Tormentil: health benefits and ingredients tormentil

  1. At first glance, the tormentil (Potentilla erecta) looks rather unremarkable with its small yellow flowers and does not reveal the strong healing powers hidden in the roots of this herbaceous plant, which belongs to the rose family (Rosaceae), a large family of dicotyledonous plants. In the Netherlands, the plant is mainly found in dry heaths, in the dunes and on limestone slopes. Centuries ago, the plant was used against bleeding. The color of the cut carrot and its juice is red. A red dye is therefore extracted from the root. Tormentil has a very high content of tannins. The tannins from the root have anti-inflammatory, drying and astringent properties, making it suitable for the treatment of superficial wounds. In addition, tannins prevent the growth of germs and bacteria. The astringent action of the tormentil can also be extremely helpful in diarrhea.
