My wife spotted this in a store and recognized the name for its association with strychnine.
The strychnine tree (Strychnos nux-vomica L.) also known as nux vomica, poison nut, semen strychnos and quaker buttons, is a deciduous tree native to India, southeast Asia... It is a major source of the highly poisonous intensely bitter alkaloids strychnine and brucine, derived from the seeds inside the tree's round, green to orange fruit... The most direct symptom caused by strychnine is violent convulsions due to a simultaneous stimulation of the motor or sensory ganglia of the spinal cord.This preparation is marketed "for the temporary relief of acid indigestion, gas or sour stomach. I notice that the label doesn't indicate the presence of strychnine (or any other active ingredient) -
- presumably because it's only a homeopathic "medicine."
