The Medical Herb, also known as the Prestoveggie or Pep Root, is a recurring recovery item in the Mana series. Available since the very first game, this strange root resembling a radish or common carrot is known to cure various status ailments not directly caused by magic. It cannot reverse magic effects such as time manipulation, defense breakdown, or offense breakdown.

A much weaker variant, the Antidote, debuted in Final Fantasy Adventure, where it was called a Potion of Pure, with the icon for a potion set to the left. Its only function is neutralizing poison.


Adventures of Mana[edit]

The AntidoteAoM (originally PureFFA) is used to cure Sumo from the poison status. It can be used three times per item.

Secret of Mana[edit]

The Medical Herb can cure a single party member of all status aliments. The Undine spell Remedy has the same effect.

Trials of Mana[edit]

Sword of Mana[edit]

Children of Mana[edit]

Behind the scenes[edit]

The original Antidote is based on the recurring item in Final Fantasy. As well, concept drawings render it as a small bottle filled with the substance. Antidotes were redrawn for Adventures of Mana; they now resemble the modern Medical Herb. The rationale behind this particular change is not known.
