Knotweed root is a staple of Chinese herbal medicine that has long been used in traditional medicine to treat many diseases, from acne and athlete's foot to indigestion and heart disease. The extract taken from the root knotweed, resveratrol, is available in natural state (white) and processed forms (red). It is also considered to stimulate the growth of the breast.
Giant knotweed extract has exhibited antitussive, antihistamine, hypotensive, vasodilator, cytotoxic and antioxidant properties, among others. The giant knotweed extract is also a concentrated source of resveratrol, an antioxidant phenol produced in response to fungi. Resveratrol has also shown antimutagenic activity in bioassays performed on in vitro bacteria. And, in a recent investigation carried out in vivo and in vitro, resveratrol showed chemical effects in three critical stages of carcinogen. Specifically, resveratrol was found in
1. Induces the enzymes of Phase II of the drug;
2. Mediate anti-inflammatory effects and inhibit cyclooxygenase and hydroperoxidase (antipromoción) and
3. Induce cell differentiation of human promyelocytic leukosis.
1 Analgesic effect and fever
Resveratrol, through a variety of different forms of therapy efficacy, the screen has antipyretic and analgesic activity, as in mice and rats (Lin and Hu, 1987). The extracts show that they should be administered in case the blood pressure does not affect the mucous membrane of the stomach resistance to gastric secretion suppressed capacity of the ulcer by stress.
2 Cancer resistance mutation
As an antioxidant, antimutant agent and anti-inflammatory agent, resveratrol shows the capacity for cancer bioprevention. It can also induce the body to early differentiation of myelocytic cells (added value) and inhibit tissue lesions of mouse breast cancer before development. Resveratrol also inhibits tyrosine kinase protein a catalytic tyrosine phosphorylation of substances. The kinase involves the regulation of cellular mitosis in the cytoplasm of information transmission. The use of resveratrol inhibits tyrosine protein kinases can prevent the kinase from playing a role of mutations and resistance functions.
3 Prevents damage to the heart and liver
Resveratrol inhibits the triglycerides of the liver and the deposition of glucose. It can also inhibit the peroxidation of the liver of fat mice and cause an increase in the levels of aspartic acid transaminase and propyl acid and transaminase. Analysis of these two types of enzymes in serum to provide good diagnostic information in the heart and damage to the liver.
4 The antithrombotic function
Giant knotweed extract inhibits the synthesis of lipoxygenase, this enzyme exists in leukocytes, the heart, the brain, the lungs and the spleen. Therefore, this extract can help preventing the formation of blood clots in blood vessels. And it can also inhibit the platelet after clonidine the antihypertensive treatment of a concentration.
5 Promotes the activity of the immune system for the treatment of wounds
Giant knotweed extract also improves the immune system and promotes the healing of the burn. ROM (1993) has studied resveratrol to restore scaling in mice by inhibiting the immune efficiency of cellular, humoral and non-specific sex. The controlled use of resveratrol provides the immunoregulatory effects of a medication depending on the type.
6 Properties mimic estrogen
At the root of the potential of Giant knotweed extract to stimulate breast enhancement is the ability of chemistry to mimic the female hormone estrogen. Resveratrol acts on receptors that receive estrogen, and mimics the presence of this hormone into the body. Resveratrol also stimulates androgen receptors, which respond to the presence of the androgen hormone that is used by the body to create estrogen.
7 Increased Blood Supply
In addition to claims that the root knotweed helps stimulate breast growth, resveratrol is also identified by herbalists as a substance that increases blood flow, while reducing clots of platelets and cholesterols in the bloodstream. This increased circulatory effect can also indirectly help the growth of the breast by increasing the blood supply to the breasts, in turn, providing additional nutrients to the breasts that can help in breast development.
It is not known how root knotweed affects pregnancies, so most doctors warn pregnant women to use any form of the root during pregnancy as a precautionary stance. Resveratrol is known to enter breast milk, and can cause diarrhea when it is passed on to children, so lactating mothers should avoid it. The compound is also nonscientifically associated with liver disease, which patients suffering from hepatitis should avoid knotweed root.
