Not really, but it's pretty freackin' huge. You can boil it or sun dry it, whatever you want. I'll be curious to see if your cancer research actually pans out; sounds like voodoo magic
to me, herbal medicine, but if the natives say it works, it works.

Item SynergiesEdit

This item DOES synergize with Infusion and DOES work on a persistent basis.


  • While the maximum health is 9999, stacking more of these, even if you're not at their cap, will raise your health beyond this limit.[verification needed]
  • Getting this item makes somewhat frequent, oval shaped, green particles appear from your character when moving.
  • Bitter Root may be based on either ginseng or ginger, looking similar to both, being "bitter" and healing, since both are used as herbal medicines.
