Pipisissewa

Chimaphila Umbellata

Long listed as a tonic and diuretic, pipsissewa is still sometimes prescribed by herbalists for rheumatic, kidney and urinary tract complaints. Scientists who have investigated the plant question pipsissewa's effectiveness as a diuretic; however, they find that it most likely has a value as a mild urinary antiseptic. Pipsissewa extract is a flavoring in candy and soft drinks, particularly root beers.
