The remedy is created from the seeds of the Strychnos Nux Vomica tree (also known as poison nut or vomiting nut). This tree is native to East India, Burma, Thailand, China, and Northern Australia and belongs to the Loganiaceae.The remedy is made from round ash gray seeds in the fruit which are surrounded by a jelly-like pulp.
The main active poisons in the seed are strychnine and brucine which are alkaloids which give the seeds a very bitter taste. Strychnine is extremely poisonous when delivered in larger doses, and produces a loss of appetite, hypersensitivity, depression, anxiety, and rigidity and stiffness of arms and legs. High level toxic doses can cause convulsions and death. It is claimed by some that Alexander the Great died from drinking wine poisoned by strychnine.
When delivered in small doses to humans it tends to promote appetite, aids digestion, and increases the frequency of urination
