Parts Used & Where Grown
Cranesbill originated in North America and is sometimes grown ornamentally in a variety of flower colors. The root is primarily used in herbal medicine, but the above-ground part of the plant has also been used traditionally by herbalists.
How It Works
Cranesbill is high in tannins, which may account for its anti-diarrheal activity.1 Little scientific research exists to clarify cranesbill’s constituents and actions.
