Hello @myfreshes, I love looking at all images of Saxifraga Odontoloma. Can the flowers useful as medicine or could be a healthy product?

Thanks for sharing on NaturalProducts.Today and dont forget to read the guideline in using the #naturalproducts here.

Hi @bahagia-arbi! The Latin word saxifraga (Saxifragaceae - the genus to which the plant belongs) - means literally "stone-breaker", from Latin saxum ("rock" or "stone") + frangere ("to break"). It is usually thought to indicate a medicinal use for treatment of urinary calculi (known as kidney stones). Thanks for the question who reminded me that I missed describing this information about the genus the plant belongs to.

And thanks for your answer.
