Stillingia, also known as Cockup hat, marcory, queen's delight, queen's root, silver leaf, and yaw root, is a perennial plant which is a native of the pine barrens and sandy soils of the southern states of the U.S. Its stem, growing from 2 to 4 feet high, contains an acrid, milky juice and bears alternate, sessile leaves that have a somewhat leathery texture. The yellow, petalless flowers grow in a terminal spike with the female flowers at the base. The fruit is a three-lobed capsule.
Stillingia has been used effectively as a cathartic, diuretic, and emetic. A decoction of the rootstock was once used to help support obstinate skin problems and to help clear up continuing pain and skin irritations. In large doses, Stillingia causes vomiting and diarrhea.

Herbal supplements are only as effective as the quality of the herbs from which they are made. When Ed Smith and Sara Katz founded Herb Pharm in 1979 they understood as herbalists this basic principle and have never compromised in their efforts to provide the highest quality, most effective whole-herb healthcare products possible. They know that producing effective herbal extracts that enable people to affect positive changes in the quality of their health is based on diligent study and understanding of traditional herbal health, and modern herbal sciences.
