Silverweed – Medicinal Uses

Silverweed is primarily used for its astringent effect due to its content of tannins.

The root normally contains more tannins than the aerial parts.

It is less astringent than tormentil (Potentilla erecta) and creeping cinquefoil (Potentilla reptans).

The similar medicinal effect of silverweed and tormentil has meant that they can be used in the same way as a natural treatment for diarrhea and minor external and internal bleeding.
