Tormentil – Medicinal Applications and Health Benefits

Tormentil is mostly used in herbal medicine for its astringent properties owing to its high content of tannins which is very rare for an herbaceous plant.

The herb is used internally for both acute and chronic diarrhea, dysentery, gastroenteritis (inflammation of the stomach and intestines), enterocolitis (inflammation of both the small intestine and the colon) and to halt minor internal bleeding.

In addition, the herb has been used as an herbal remedy for the inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) ulcerative colitis and also for gastritis and peptic ulcers (open sores that develop on the inside lining of the stomach).
