Foxglove

Digitalis Purpurea

Prior to 1775 foxglove was used against all sorts of maladies, including epilepsy and tuberculosis. Doctors today prescribe digitalis to strengthen the heart and to regulate its beat. No synthetic drugs can duplicate the action of the glycosides in foxglove in treating heart failure.

Extremely poisonous. A leaf chewed and swallowed may cause paralysis and sudden heart failure.
