In anemone they are stimulant to the liver, increasing bile flow and so helping to improve metabolism of nutrients, especially fats. This action may help to protect against the development of gallstones, and the hormonal saponins affect both male and female hormone structure,
though the mechanism is not understood. The volatile oil and tannins may be responsible for the alterative action - this is an old term used to describe herbs which relieve both viral and bacterial infections. The nearest modern equivalent is an antibiotic, but antibiotics only act on bacteria, whereas the herbal compounds appear to increase the
body's resistance to a variety of organisms. It was once considered a specific cure for measles. Its main use today is for nervous exhaustion, pain and inflammation in the reproductive system, especially in menopause. It is observed to stimulate secretion of all mucous membranes, and this may account for its use as a remedy for
