Tussilago farfara

Summary 2

Tussilago farfara, commonly known as coltsfoot, is a plant in the family Asteraceae that has traditionally had medicinal uses. However, the discovery of toxic pyrrolizidine alkaloids in the plant has resulted in liver health concerns. T. farfara is the only species in the genus Tussilago; the name "tussilago" itself means "cough suppressant".
