Comarum palustre L. (marsh cinquefoil, Rosaceae) is a medicinal plant from marshy areas of the boreal and tundra zones of Siberia and the Far East. Preparations of it are used to treat musculoskeletal diseases as an anti-inflammatory and antibacterial agent . Roots of the plant are used. Overharvesting of them is leading to extensive destruction of natural populations and disruption of the ecological equilibrium of forest ecosystems. Sustainable harvesting technologies must be used for this plant in order to improve the current situation. The aerial part of the plant was proposed as an alternative source of the drugs during the studies. Information on the chemical composition of C. palustre is limited to reports that the subterranean organs contained procyanidins ; the aerial part, 2-pyrone-4,6-dicarboxylic acid , gossypetrin, (–)-epigallocatechin-3-Ogallate, essential oil, and chebulinic acid .
