Estonian Drug Store Offers Cure For Broken Hearts

Posted By Ben Goulding, 17 February, 2010 | permalink

An ancient pharmacy in Estonia promises a cure for broken hearts and love pain. It consists of an almond-based concoction that’s been around since medieval times.

“Since the Middle Ages a special marzipan prescription has been prepared and sold here for the heart to relieve the pain of love,” said Ulle Noodapera, a pharmacist at the Raeapteek drug store which first opened for business in Tallinn’s old town square in 1422.

It is believed to be Europe’s oldest pharmacy, and has been in operation for 588 years.

“We keep making the special marzipan because the need for such a medicine has continued over the centuries, and patients with symptoms of love pain keep turning up seeking the cure,” she added.

The ancient recipe is a jealously guarded secret.
