Its antispasmodic property is beneficial for colic and flatulence caused by muscle spasms; for poor circulation and neuralgia; for the inflammatory stage of rheumatory arthritis; and for abdominal and intestinal cramping. It is very beneficial for nervousness & restlessness. As a stimulant for increased bile flow, it helps to relieve hepatic congestion, bilious colic and gallstones, but in higher doses, it may act as an emetic.
