Cathartic, tonic and astringent. Its astringency is exerted after its cathartic effect is produced, thus making it a very valuable remedy in bowel complaints. Its tonic power also makes it a valuable remedy for habitual constipation and dyspepsia. -- from Parke, Davis & Co. Organic Materia Medica. Detroit, MI: Parke, Davis & Company; 1888., pg. 152.
