The leaves and tops of Boneset were used by Native Americans for relieving colds and fevers, and to cause sweating. Early European settlers also called it Feverwort, and found it useful for treating gout and arthritis as well as yellow fever, dengue fever, influenza, and malaria. It was grown as a substitute for quinine, and recent research has demonstrated its effectiveness against the malarial plasmodium. The name Boneset reflects its value for deep aching pains in both infectious and chronic inflammatory conditions.
Known active components of Boneset include many flavonoids, methylated flavonoid aglycones, triterpenes and sterols, caffeic acid derivatives, fatty acids and fatty alcohols, and some polysaccharides.
