Indole is one of the principle growth hormones in higher plants in the form of Indole-3-acetic acid (IAA) and is also used in perfumes. Indole is mildly toxic to herbivores and the bacterial flora of the intestinal tract. For non-ruminants such as humans, who have difficulty with Indole, its main effect appears to be intestinal as it causes bloating and constipation. Milk intolerance can be somewhat alleviated by neutralization of Indole. However, complete neutralization to milk sometimes requires several phenolics. In addition to allergic rhinitis, the Materia Medica recommends its use for fatigue, cholera, typhus, sepsis, putrification of proteins in the intestinal tract and various symptoms of poisoning.
