What Is Water Plantain Extract?
Alisma plantago-aquatica, also known as European water-plantain, common water-plantain or mad-dog weed, is a hairless plant that grows in shallow water, consists of a fibrous root, several basal long stemmed leaves 15–30 cm long, and a triangular stem up to 1 m tall. It has branched inflorescence bearing numerous small flowers, 1 cm across, with three round or slightly jagged, white or pale purple petals. The flowers open in the afternoon. There are 3 blunt green sepals, and 6 stamens per flower. The carpels often exist as a flat single whorl. It flowers from June until August.
The word alisma is said to be a word of Celtic origin meaning “water”, a reference to the habitat in which it grows. Early botanists named it after the Plantago because of the similarity of their leaves.
Composition of Water Plantain
Chemical constituents of Rhizoma Alismatis—rhizomes of Alisma orientale (syn. Alisma plantago-aquatica var. orientale) as a traditional Chinese medicine—include alisol A 24-acetate and alisol B 23-acetate. The content of these two compounds are significantly different in Rhizoma Alismatis of different areas.
Health Benefits of Water Plantain Extract
Herbalists recommend using the powdered seeds as an astringent in cases of bleeding. Alisma has also been used as a diuretic, and it can be used to alleviate water retention. Its urination-promoting actions are used to reduce edema, urinary difficulties, diarrhea, and abdominal distention. Additionally, alisma is used to help treat dizziness with heat and ringing in the ears. Studies have shown that alisma lowers blood pressure. Alisma is known to lower lipids in blood, lower blood cholesterol levels, exhibit antibacterial properties, and lower blood sugar. Sometimes the bruised leaves of alisma have been applied topically to bruises and swellings.
