Mistletoe (Viscum Album)

Mistletoe is a parasitic plant that grows on various types of trees. The European mistletoe, also called the viscum album, has been harvested for centuries to treat fatigue, insomnia, nervousness, panic attacks and decreased immunity. Moreover, mistletoe extracts are commonly prescribed for cancer and also used to treat diabetes, hypertension and arthritis. Due to the side effects, mistletoe should only be taken under medical supervision and should not be used during pregnancy. When used correctly, Viscum Album can effectively improve the quality of life.
