Goat’s rue is a plant that belongs to the pea family, and is native to the temperate grasslands of the Middle East.
The parts that grow above the ground can be used to make medicine for a variety of uses including as a diuretic, and in the treatment of diabetes.
In conjunction with other herbs, it may be used to stimulate the adrenal gland and pancreas, to protect the liver, for digestion problems, and to start the flow of breast milk.
