Common Sorrel – Health Benefits and Traditional Uses

Both the roots and the aerial parts of sorrel can be used as herbal medicine but today it is mostly used medicinally in combination with other herbs and in specific herbal formulas.

The sorrel leaves are regarded to have laxative and antipyretic properties and they can also be used to stimulate appetite and quench thirst.

An extract of the leaves (25 g to one to ½ liter of boiling water) is used as a cooling drink for high fever.
