Acetaminophen plantation.

Greetings friends...

This plant is known in Venezuela as acetaminophen. I was able to take these photos 2 weeks ago.

This plant became very famous after a Venezuelan government figure said that this plant had the same properties as the medicine called acetamminophen, which is an analgesic and antipyretic.

From there many people prepare their tea of ​​the supposed acetaminophen, but this plant is what Boldo Paraguayan really is and its properties are very different from those attributed to it here in Venezuela.

According to the information I could collect, this plant can be used as a digestive but it must be used very carefully as it contains a very toxic substance for the body that can cause death.

This plant contains high amounts of ascaridol, a substance that can cause seizures, overexcitement and cramping. The most advisable is not to be ingested by children or pregnant women.

Great post. We have a plant in my area called wintergreen. It grows close to the ground and has leaves that contain an aspirin-like chemical that might reduce pain, swelling, and fever. It has red-edible berries. When you crack the leaves they give of a wintergreen-peppermint smell. You can often find the berries in the middle of winter too.

I will be looking for information on that plant, thanks for visiting my publication.

Garden is beautiful.

thank you.

Thank you for sharing, Nice post
