Summary of Oxytropis falcate

Primary information, health benefits, side effects, usage, and other important details

Oxytropus Falcate is a fairly odd herb, with a large degree of renown in Tibetan medicine (where it is referred to as the King of Herbs) yet highly underresearched; its composition appeared to be well characterized, although not quantified, but currently there is a single rat study assessing topical pain-killing and anti-inflammatory effects and no human studies.

Not much can be said about this herb right now.
