Couch grass root has been recommended for urinary tract problems since the time of ancient Greece and Rome. In the sixteenth century, it was considered good for the liver and the urinary tract. At one time a decoction of couchgrass was a popular drink taken in the spring time to purify the blood. In Europe today, it is still a very popular method for improving health and urinary function. It has been observed that cattle, including sheep and goats, have improved health in the spring when they begin eating this herb.
