Definition


Hieracium pilosella, nicknamed mouse-ear hawkweed, is a plant with small yellow flowers presumed to have medicinal properties, the main one being diuretic, as it helps the kidneys dispose of urine. This flower is thus generally prescribed to treat edema, which is, in simple terms, areas of water retention in the body. It is also believed to have a positive impact on the liver function, to relieve various digestive problems, and have anti-infectious properties. Hieracium pilosella can be bought at a pharmacy in the form of gel capsules or drops.
