31 Oct Examining the Health Benefits of Greater Celandine Supplements
Commonly grown in Asia, Southern and Central Europe and North America, Greater Celandine is an extract derived from a plant with a long history in traditional Chinese medicine. One of the ingredients included in Prolean Wellness’s MetaboLiv supplement, Greater Celandine has a number of known benefits.
Also known scientifically as Chelidonium majus, Greater Celandine is sometimes used to help address dyspepsia, or indigestion. In fact, some studies have shown that individuals who are treated with an herbal preparation containing Greater Celandine experience an improvement in gastrointestinal symptoms. A mixture of Greater Celandine along with peppermint, caraway, German chamomile, clown’s mustard plant, licorice, angelica, lemon balm and milk thistle has been found to reduce the severity of stomach pain, acid reflux, nausea, cramping and vomiting when taken by mouth for four weeks.
Some laboratory tests have also found that Greater Celandine is effective at helping to treat cancer by inducing apoptosis, which is a type of programmed cell death that helps stop the spread of cancer cells. Specific cancers that appear to be positively affected by injecting Greater Celandine intravenously include bladder, pancreatic, colorectal and breast cancer. Additional research seems to indicate that taking a solution of calendine mixture by mouth for two weeks may have antitumor effects for those with esophageal cancer.
Additional research has found that Greater Celandine may be beneficial when it comes to treating atopic dermatitis, which is a form of eczema. Research seems to indicate that the supplement helps to reduce the severity of the symptoms associated with eczema, including itching and inflammation.
Research also suggests that Greater Celandine may help to increase the flow of bile while also reducing swelling, relieving pain and even possibly killing bacteria, fungi and viruses.
