Tussilago farfara

  • Coltsfoot  (Tussilago farfara)
  • In TCM: Kuǎndōng (款冬).<wiki/List_of_medicinal_plants#cite_note-read-12"> It is used as an expectorant in apoplexy, phthisis, coughs, and asthma, and as a demulcent in fevers.<wiki/List_of_medicinal_plants#cite_note-stuart-5">

  • Harmful effects: Can cause liver damage leading to cancer and death. <wiki/List_of_medicinal_plants#cite_note-75"> Coltsfoot naturally contains pyrrolizidine alkaloids, which are carcinogenic. Coltsfoot supplements that are labeled "PA-free" (meaning without pyrrolizidine alkaloids) are perhaps better, but their safety is unknown.

The entire plant is edible.
  • The plant has no known harmful side effects aside from its diuretic properties, which may interfere with certain medications, and/or cause increased frequency of changing pajamas and bedsheets.
