  journal={Indian Journal of Traditional Knowledge},
Verbesina encelioides (Cav.) Benth. & Hook. Fil ex Gray (Asteraceae) regarded as a notorious weed and an ornamental garden plant has found various uses in folk medicine in different parts of the world. This plant possesses analgesic, emetic, febrifuge and insecticidal actions but is mildly toxic to small ruminants, which is attributed to the relative amount of galegine. V. encelioides also produces a number of metabolites like flavonoids, terpenoids, sesquiterpenes and essential oils, etc. in… Expand

Toxicosis from and possible adaptation to Galega officinalis in sheep and the relationship to Verbesina encelioides toxicosis.
Ewes administered the plant on several consecutive days developed an apparent adaptation to the toxin of the plant and were thereby able subsequently to tolerate levels 5-10 times the pre-treatment lethal dose with no discernible adverse clinical or pathological effects. Expand
