Bistort

Polygonum Bistorta

Bistort is a powerful astringent because of its high tannin content. Herbalists recommend external applications of the powdered rhizome to control bleeding. An extract of the rhizome is suggested for internal use in cases of diarrhea, and herbalists also mention using the extract externally as a wash, or lotion, for sores.
