Belladonna is a naturally occurring mixture.
Belladonna produces many effects in the body, including relief from spasms of the gastrointestinal tract (stomach and intestines), the bladder, and the biliary tract. This is helpful in controlling conditions such as colitis, spastic bladder, diverticulitis, infant colic, renal and biliary colic, peptic ulcer, and irritable bowel syndrome.
Belladonna also reduces the secretions of many organs, thereby helping to control conditions such as excessive stomach acid production.
Belladonna is used to treat the rigidity, tremor, excessive salivation, and sweating caused by Parkinson’s disease.
Belladonna also is used to treat motion sickness, nausea, vomiting, abdominal cramping associated with menstruation, and to reduce nighttime urination.
