This is one of the purest and most effective bitter tonics to be found in all nature. In indolent, dysprasic and enervated conditions, it is one of the quickest and best tonic strengtheners, promoting digestion, elimination of toxic matter, toning and nourishing the whole system. In chronic diarrhea and dysentery and in convalescence from febrile diseases it is unsurpassed by any other remedy. We have known cases of extreme dyspepsia and debility, without power to digest and assimilate nourishment, to be completely restored to health and strength within a few weeks or months by the simple use of this Herb.1 (Shook, Edward)

We also believe that the infusion of this Herb is the best and the safest form in which to administer it. (Shook, Edward)
