False Unicorn Root was used by Native American women to deter miscarriage. It has survived the test of time and is still widely used to treat a variety of problems unique to the female reproductive system. The root contains steroidal saponins making them useful for infertility which is associated with failure to ovulate. In combination with other “female” herbs, it is useful for painful periods, cramping, and infrequent periods. This herb could be a woman’s best friend.
