Meadowsweet Herbal Drops

Description

Common Name: Meadowsweet
Botanical Name: Filipendula ulmaria
Part Used: Herb
Ratio: 1:1

May be helpful with reflux, diarrhoea, gastritis.

As a digestive aid, Meadowsweet soothes and protects the mucous membranes of the digestive tract and stomach lining whilst reducing acidity. Studies have found that Meadowsweet can also promote the healing of chronic ulcers and prevent lesions from developing in the stomach. It is used in the treatment of heartburn, hyperacidity, gastritis and peptic ulceration. Its gentle astringency is useful in treating diarrhoea, especially in children.

Meadowsweet extract has also been shown in scientific research to inhibit the growth of the Helicobacter pylori bacteria. Whilst many people can have this bacteria living inside them for an entire lifetime and not know about it, this silent but potentially deadly bacteria can wreak havoc within the gastric system.

Containing salicylic acid, Meadowsweet is an effective herb against inflammation. It is now thought that most diseases can be traced back to chronic low-level inflammation, making this herb an extremely useful tool in your natural health kit. Salicylic acid is more famously known to come from Willow, however the other compounds within Meadowsweet make it much easier on the lining of the stomach.

The anti-inflammatory action of these salicylates makes Meadowsweet effective against rheumatic pain, while its tannin and mucilage content appear to buffer the adverse effects of isolated salicylates which can cause gastric bleeding.

Research has demonstrated immunomodulatory properties of meadowsweet preparations extracted from both the flowers and roots of the plant. All parts of the plant contain high levels of phenolic compounds, including a newly discovered flavonoid glycoside named ulmarioside, which is unique to Meadowsweet. Ethyl acetate extracts were shown to inhibit both T-cell proliferation and complement cascade activation (a major part of innate immunity), therefore inhibiting the immune response. They also inhibited the production of reactive oxygen species (free radicals). All of these processes play a part in the inflammatory response, and explain the effectiveness of meadowsweet preparations in the treatment of inflammatory conditions.
