Boiron Nux vomica (80 pellets) 30C potency is in Boiron's Single Medicines series and is most commonly used as a homeopathic remedy for heartburn or drowsiness due to excessive eating or drinking. This is the 80 pellet and 30C potency version of Nux vomica by Boiron, which contains Nux vomica 30C HPUS as its main ingredient. HPUS means that these ingredients are officially included in the Homeopathic Pharmacopoeia of the United States. The potency of 30C means that Boiron first took the fully concentrated and undiluted version of Nux vomica and diluted it 100 times (100 is represented by the Roman Numeral C). The resulting solution (Nux vomica of 1C potency) was then diluted 10 more times, creating a 2C potency Nux vomica. Then the 2C potency Boiron Nux vomica was diluted another 10 times for the third time, resulting in this Boiron Nux vomica 3C potency dilution. This was done a total of 30 times, the end result being this 30 C potency dilution. Other ingredients in Boiron Nux vomica (80 pellets) 30C potency - Single Medicines include sucrose and lactose. Boiron's Nux vomica is also known as Poison nut.

How are homeopathic medicines presented?
Many homeopathic medicines are presented as specialties in packaging like other over-the-counter drugs you're familliar with.
Specialties are very convenient as their indications and directions for use are very clear and specific to a condition. They are available in a variety of dosage forms such as tablets, gels, ointments and creams, syrups, eye drops, and suppositories.
If you are not yet familiar with homeopathic medicines, specialties are a great way to discover their benefits.
Specialties, like Arnicare Gel or Calendula Lotion, may contain one single medicine although most of the time they combine several active ingredients within the same product. Another very common presentation for homeopathic medicines is the multi-dose tube. This presentation is usually used for medicines containing only one active ingredient.
When should I choose a single medicine?
In some instances, symptoms are so specific that it is easy to select one single medicine. Many self-medication books are available to help you in your selection. One of the most popular is the Family Guide by Dr. Alain Horvilleur. Boiron offers more than 80 of the most commonly used single medicines, packaged in our signature "multi-dose tubes" to select health food stores and pharmacies. These stores may also special-order other single medicines from the 800 stocked by Boiron.
