Manuals of Bodily Health are magical tomes which raise the Constitution of the reader by one point. After it is used, the tome will be destroyed. It can be used by all classes. Like all tomes, it has a weight of 25 lbs. This item appears in Baldur's Gate and Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition.

In Baldur's Gate, it can be found in Black Alaric's Cave (also called the Flesh Golem Cave, in the Lighthouse area), alongside Relair's Mistake and some potions.


A typical manual of bodily health provides the reader with valuable information regarding preventative medicine, basic first aid, and proper muscle toning. As if this isn't enough, the manual is also magically enhanced, thereby allowing an individual to raise his or her Constitution by a single point. Unfortunately, the manual will disappear after a single use.
