|Characteristics:||Strophanthin, also known as Ouabain, was used by the African natives as arrow poison for a long time. It is produced from a milk-secreting climbing plant, but it is also an endogenous hormone which is produced in the adrenal gland and is involved in the regulation of sodium and water balance. The human hypophysis contains an isomer of g-Strophanthin. Therefore, g-Strophanthin is an endogenic substance. By its influence, myocardial activity can be relieved significantly. Weakness of the adrenal gland which often occurs with increasing age, as well as senile heart weakness can be balanced with G-Strophanthin.|
