Plant: ribwort (Plantago lanceolata), eyebright (Euphrasia), mullein (Verbascum) (woolly flower), speedwell (Veronica officinalis).

  • Secondary plant substance from the group of iridoids, it is a glycoside of the aglycone aucubigenin with one unit of glucose
  • Has antibiotic effect and influences blood pressure
  • The sap of ribwort contains aucubin and does not mold, the saps of most other plants mold
  • Aucubin has anti-inflammatory, analgesic, astringent and anti-irritant effects
  • Applying crushed ribwort leaves can reduce the itching and swelling of insect bites
  • Used for inflammation of the mouth, throat and respiratory tract and for inflammatory eye conditions (also used to improve breastfeeding performance and to treat menstrual cramps)
  • Aucubin is preserved only with careful extraction
  • It makes the tea bitter
  • Aucubin is decomposed by intestinal bacteria, so the tea has no pharmacological effect
