CATNIP (Nepeta cataria)

Catnip

DESCRIPTION: Catnip has often been referred to as nature's "Alka-Seltzer." On the Indian reservation, relatives always came to my grandmother for catnip when their babies had colic or they needed some gastro-intestinal relief. The Indians have long used catnip for baby colic, but remember that it is also a sedative.

POTENTIAL BENEFITS: It has been known to help prevent a cold when taken as a warm infusion (drinking) and when you first notice symptoms. Catnip is high in Vitamins A, C and B-Complex and contains the minerals magnesium, phosphorus, sodium and a trace of sulphur.

POTENTIAL SIDE EFFECTS: None known as this time.
