The herb decoction inhibited the motility of the isolated small intestines of mice and rabbits; the intravenous injection of the decoction demonstrated an inhibitory effect on the gastrointestinal musculature of anesthetized dogs, small intestine of anesthetized rabbits, and stomach of anaesthetized rabbits. The action was weaker than that of epinephrine but more prolonged. This was probably due to the relative stability of the active component of the herb1. In experiments on the isolated rabbit intestine, various kinds of Chinese medicines including this herb, which are reputed to "regulate the vital energy", antagonized the effect of acetylcholine. But the inhibitory action of the herb on the isolated rabbit intestine was antagonized by acetylcholine. The herb could elicit further relaxation of the intestines if the intestinal muscular tone was already reduced by pretreatment with atropine2.
