The autumn crocus as a medicinal herb:

As a raw material in the chemical industry for the preparation of the alkaloid colchicine. Strong and dangerous poison.

Colchicine preparations are used against gout, rheumatism, for pain relief and more. only with prescription in the form of extracts and tinctures in minimal doses. At higher doses, colchicine causes diarrhea, and at even higher doses, death, paralyzing the center of respiration.

Folk beliefs related to the autumn crocus say that once it blooms, it is time to prepare for the winter and patch the casing, and the shepherds to collect their flocks.

За семената на това растение се смята, че задържат разрастването на туморните клетки и са много ефективни при лечението на рак. Според учените препарат от есенния лилав вид минзухар предотвратява растежа на туморите при рак на белия дроб, рак на гърдата, рак на простата.

Употреба на есенния минзухар като лековита билка:

Като суровина в химикофармацевтичната промишленост за получаване на алкалоида колхицин - опасна отрова.

Препаратите от колхицина се употребяват против подагра, ревматизъм, за уталожване на болките и др. само с лекарско предписание във вид на екстракти и тинктури в минимални дози. В по-големи дози колхицинът предизвиква диария, а в още по-големи — смърт, като парализира центъра на дишането.

Народните вярвания свързани с есенния минзухар гласят, че щом разцъфне, е време да се подготвим за зимата и да закърпим кожуха, а овчарите да приберат стадата си.
