Night Blooming Cereus
Personal Note: A useful herb in lowering blood pressure, Cereus is often used in combo with other cardiovascular herbs or alteratives.
Selenecereus grandiflorus is a species of Night Blooming Cereus originating from Mexico and Central America. It blooms only once a year, for a single night. Its principal action is upon the circular muscle fibers of the heart and arterioles making it a useful cardiotonic and hypotensive.
Common Medical Uses
