    I was messing around on Amazon when I found this listing:
    http://www.amazon.com/gp....3760901

    It looks like they made pills out of D. rotundifolia and that it's a treatment for sore throat, dry cough, and a number of other throat-area problems. Anyone heard of this? And if so, is this legit or some kind of CP snake oil potion?

    IIRC then there we actually some uses of certain Drosera poducts that were legit. However, things like VFT extract and things along those lines seem to be as you say "snake oil."

    I have a friemd in England that grows flats of D.binata, and harvests the leaves for a European pharm. co. and makes a pretty good buck (or should I say pound?) for a kilo of it. I think it might be an ingredient in Riccola cough drops, not sure though. I don't think D. rotundifolia is used all that much these days.

    Have also read of successful wart removal using sundewgoo, and as everyone probably knows rubbing Nepenthes flowers on your ears acts like viagara.

    The real health benefit is in spending time relaxing and admiring the beauty of creation that produced these lovely miracles. A dose of that a day is prescribed.
