Mayapple General Information
Mayapple’s scientific name is derived from the Greek words “podos” and “phyllon,” which mean foot-shaped leaves and the word “peltatum” which means shield-like. The leaves of Mayapple are a common sight in woodland areas. Native American Indians used this plant as a laxative, an antidote for snakebite, and for treating intestinal worms. They also used it to treat warts and as an insecticide for their crops. Sometimes Indians ate the roots and shoots to commit suicide. In fact, the ripe fruit is the only part of the plant that is not toxic. Even though podophyllotoxin is the lethal component in Mayapple, scientific studies have proven it has tumor-inhibiting properties and is effective in blocking cell division.
