Polygonum Cuspidatum--Chinese Hu Zhang

Date : 2018-7-6 2:22:31 Views :


Hu zhang is the Chinese name given to a plant with the scientific name of Polygonum cuspidatum. North American varieties are often referred to as “Mexican bamboo.” The root is used as medicine.

Polygonum cuspidatum is used for conditions of the heart and blood vessels including “hardening of the arteries” (atherosclerosis), high cholesterol, and heart disease; and for digestion problems including constipation, liver disease (hepatitis), and gallstones. It is also used for cancer, skin burns, pain and swelling of the bone (osteomyelitis) and gout.

Women sometimes use Polygonum cuspidatum for painful menstrual periods and menopausal symptoms such as hot flashes.

Plant Forms

Polygonum cuspidatum is an herbaceous perennial that appears woody, and reaches 1-3 m (3-10 ft.) in height. The round stems are hollow and covered with scales. The shoots grow from spreading rhizomes that can reach 20 m (65 ft.) in length. The leaves are broadly oblong-ovate or ovate-lanceolate, 8-15 cm (3-6 in.) long and 5-12 cm (2-4.75 in.) wide. The tips of the leaves are abruptly acuminate, while the bases of the leaves are truncate. The lower leaf surface lacks the minute trichomes that other similar species possess (see below).

 The numerous, greenish-white flowers of Polygonum cuspidatum are borne in panicles from the upper axils. These panicles measure 8-15 cm (3-6 in.) long. The flowers are functionally unisexual: each of the male and female flowers still have the complementary organs, but they are vestigial. The inflorescences of the male flowers tend to be upright, while those of the female flowers tend to be drooping. Flowers appear from August to September. The fruit are papery and winged, and are 6-10 mm (0.25-0.4 in.) long. These fruits contain black, smooth, shiny, 3-angled achenes that are 3-4 mm (0.2 in.) long. When frost hits this plant, it quickly turns brown and dies back for the year.

Health Benefits of Polygonum Cuspidatum

Cognitive Impact
One of the most well known and widely relied on benefits of  Polygonum cuspidatum is its apparent effect on cognitive disorders, like Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. This is primarily due to the resveratrol content of the herb, which is the same for most of the plant’s benefits. Resveratrol has shown a measurable preventative effect against neurodegenerative processes that can affect neural pathways. Just as antioxidants can eliminate plaque and neutralize free radicals that can slow mental function and cause deterioration, resveratrol can keep brain pathways energized and in use, preventing those tragic conditions.

Heart Disease
When one consumes high-fat, rich foods, there is a much greater chance of developing heart disease and cardiovascular complications, such as high cholesterol. However, the resveratrol in Polygonum cuspidatum has been known to counter that, due to its resveratrol content.  In France, where red wine is drunk in high concentrations (and thus, large amounts of resveratrol are consumed), heart conditions are very uncommon, despite the high-fat and rich diet that many people enjoy there. By adding Polygonum cuspidatum to your diet, you can benefit from the same heart-protective qualities!

Blood Pressure
Early research on resveratrol’s effect on the heart primarily centered on a reduction in fat, there have also been encouraging results regarding resveratrol’s ability to modulate blood pressure. By reducing strain and stress on the heart, lower blood pressure can significantly lower the risk of heart attacks and strokes by keeping the arteries and blood vessels dilated, preventing blood clots. 

Gastrointestinal Concerns
If you are suffering from stomach issues, such as constipation, bloating, cramps, inflammation, or chronic pain, Polygonum cuspidatum may be just what the alternative medical practitioner ordered! By adding resveratrol-rich herbs to your diet, you can significantly reduce gastrointestinal distress, and the herb also acts as a mild laxative, which can help clear out your system and get your digestive processes back to normal. 

Cancer Prevention
Any herb that has anti-cancer potential tends to get a lot of attention, and Polygonum cuspidatum is no exception. Resveratrol appears to have a number of beneficial effects against carcinogens responsible for many types of cancer, including breast, prostate, colon, and thyroid varieties. Research is ongoing, but these early results are very encouraging, and add another reason why Polygonum cuspidatum is a great supplemental idea for those looking to protect their health!

Insulin Control

Over time, particularly if we have a poor diet, our body becomes less able to regulate its insulin levels, and develops “insulin resistance”.This can lead to diabetes and many other health complications, but if you add Polygonum cuspidatum to your diet, you can effectively avoid all of that. The resveratrol (again!) in Polygonum cuspidatum is able to prevent insulin resistance from developing, keeping your blood sugar levels regulated.
