Bittersweet General Information
Bittersweet is a vine-like perennial with trailing or climbing stems up to 10 feet long with heart-shaped leaves. It has star-shaped pinkish purple flowers with bright yellow stamens followed by green berries, which turn bright red. It is a persistent weed that is part of the same botanical family as potato and the tomato, but is a poisonous black sheep, and even though it is toxic, ancient Romans used this herb to treat pneumonia, absent menstruation, jaundice, rheumatism, cramps, eczema, psoriasis, asthma, and phlegm. In homeopathy, it is similar to the Belladonna, Capsicum, Hyoscyamus, and Stramonium remedies, which are also given to people who are very sensitive to cold and damp. Bittersweet has stimulant, expectorant, diuretic, and detoxifying properties.

Bittersweet Uses & Scientific Evidence For
Herbalists use Bittersweet extract made from the stems as a sedative, pain reliever, and diuretic. The yellow berries are used for treating convulsive disorders and menstrual problems. This herb is also used to relieve asthma, chronic bronchitis, rheumatic conditions and gout. Bittersweet is used internally or externally for skin diseases such as eczema, itchiness, psoriasis, and warts and as a treatment for swellings. A decoction of the twigs as a wash lessens the severity of skin conditions. It also works well in treating hives, ringworm, and itchy, crusty eruptions on the scalp and face. Recent research has shown that Bittersweet contains the anti-tumor agent, beta-solarmarine, which may have some effect in treating cancer.
