SARRACENIA Sarracenia purpurea

Synonyms-Pitcher Plant, Sidesaddle Plant, Fly Trap, Water Cup.

CONSTITUENTS—

Sarracenin, a resin, sarracenic acid.

PREPARATIONS—

Specific Sarracenia. Dose, from two to twenty drops. Tincture Sarracenia. Dose, one dram.

Physiological Action—The agent is laxative, stimulating the action of the intestinal glands and the liver and overcoming torpidity. It stimulates the kidneys, inducing an abundant flow of limpid urine. It is an active eliminating agent, exercising a special influence upon the glands of the skin.

Therapy—As a remedy in the treatment of zymotic disease this agent has been used with good results. It is given freely during the course of scarlet fever, measles and small-pox, and it is claimed that in every case it modifies the character of these diseases, shortens their course, and prevents sequelae. It has, as yet, no established place in therapeutics.

Pitcher Plant (Sarracenia purpurea L.)“kokokoo'makasîn” [owl's shoe].

Mrs. Spoon uses the foliage of the Pitcher Plant to make a “squaw” remedy, though she could not explain its particular use. Among the whites,the entire plant was used by eclectic practitioners for its bitter, astringent, stimulant, tonic, and diuretic properties. Another authoritystates that the entire plant has been used for its tonic, stimulant, diuretic and laxative properties.
