Carpe Diem #1202 Corydalis

Dear haijin,visitors and travelers,

Welcome at another episode of our Magical Experience through Tibet and today I have another nice herb for you. This herb is one of the most secret and sacred herbs used in Tibet and other Asian countries. This herb is called Coryalis.

Let me tell you a little bit more about this herb first:

It is estimated that about 428 species of genus Corydalis are distributed all worldwide, with about 298, especially 10 groups and 219 species being uniquely spread in China. The genus Corydalis has been widely employed as folk medicines in China, especially as traditional Tibetan medicines, for treatment of fever, hepatitis, edema, gastritis, cholecystitis, hypertension and other diseases. The phytochemical studies revealed that isoquinoline alkaloids are its major bioactive ingredients. The extensive biological researches suggested its pharmacological activities and clinic applications against cardiovascular diseases and central nervous system, antibacterial activities, analgesic effects, anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidation and anti-injury for hepatocyte, and so on.
Sounds great this natural medicine ... as an oncology nurse I love to research these kinds of gifts from Mother Nature, because all the possible medicines for oncology patients are mostly artificial or chemical ... so why don't we try the sources around us ... the sources of Mother Nature.
