Jambu assu. Piper jaborandi.
Jambu Assu. Piper Jaborandi.—The root of Piper Jaborandi Veil. (Fam. Piperaceae) is one of the Pipers of Brazil, which is used by the natives as a sudorific, a diuretic, and a febrifuge. It is said to contain an alkaloid and a pungent oleoresin. It has no botanical, and probably no medicinal, relation with pilocarpus.
