What is Galla Chinensis Extract?
Galla chinensi, also known as Chinese gall or Wu Bei Zi in Pinyin, is an astringent commonly used in Chinese herbal remedies. Its top medicinal properties can be simply characterized by 5 stops - stopping dysentery, stopping bleeding, stopping coughing, stopping sweating, and stopping rectal prolapse. Hence, today it is widely used for the treatment of loose, watery stools, chronic gastritis, gastric ulcer, upper gastrointestinal bleeding, evening coughing, rectal hernias, and so on.
Galla chinensis extract (GCE), a naturally-derived agent, has a significant inhibitory effect on cariogenic bacteria. The present study aims to evaluate the antibacterial effect and shear bond strength of an orthodontic adhesive cement containing GCE. A resin-modified glass ionomer cement incorporated GCE at five mass fractions (0, 0.1, 0.2, 0.4, and 0.8%) to prepare GCE-containing cement for analysis. For the agar diffusion test, cement specimens were placed on agar disk inoculated with Streptococcus mutans (strain ATCC 25175). Following 48 h incubation, the inhibition halo diameter was measured.
Galla Chinensis Extract has astringent, antidiarrheal and antibacterial properties. It treats digestive disorders such as diarrhea and dysentery, reduces coughs, congestion and inflammation, and helps to stop night sweats and spontaneous perspiration. Chinese gall can also be applied topically to stop bleeding, promote wound healing, and reduce scarring from burns, scrapes and cuts.

Galla Chinensis Benefits:
Galla chinensis extract has been used for thousands of years due to its antibacterial, antiviral, anticaries, antioxidative, anticancer, live-protective, antidiabetic, antidiarrheal, anti-inflammatory and antithrombin activity. G. chinensis is rich in gallotannins, and has nearly 20% gallic acid (GA) and 7% methyl gallate.
There are many medicinal benefits to using Galla chinensis. The therapeutic powers of this ancient herb lie in the chemical compounds inside the plant — especially the galls, which are abnormal protruding growths on leaves. Compounds include tannins, flavonoids, triterpenoids and phenolic compounds. Gallotannins are an especially important compound found within the galls containing gallic acid, which are responsible for many of the medicinal benefits of Galla chinensis. Additionally, the leaves of the plant also have many essential oils that are healthy to our diet, such as palmitic acid, phytol and heptacosane.
Galla chinensis can promote digestive health, which depends on many factors. One of these factors involve gut bacteria and the microbiome. Even healthy people have bacteria in their digestive tract, and it is perfectly normal, or even healthy, to have them. Healthy, “good” bacteria are necessary for us to properly digest the food we eat. On the other hand, disease-causing bacteria can also live in our digestive tract. Galla chinensis helps us fight these bad germs that cause digestive problems. One study found that this herbal medicine suppressed the growth of enterotoxic E. coli, the most common pathogen to cause diarrhea. Fighting off the diarrhea-causing bacteria is not only good because it prevents illness, but it also helps us keep good bacteria alive and healthy.
As previously mentioned, much of the digestive benefits of Galla Chinensis Extract comes from its ability to fight bacteria. But how does it do this? It turns out that this plant naturally produces its own hydrogen peroxide, which is a chemical that destroy germs. Researchers tested 16 different antimicrobial plants, and amongst this group of herbs, Galla chinenesis had the highest measured levels of hydrogen peroxide production. Hydrogen peroxide is likely the main reason why Galla chinensis is so good at helping us fight off diarrheal infections. It is capable of stopping the growth of the most common diarrhea-causing germs — even those that cause food poisoning.
Besides antibacterial activity, Galla chinensis extract has also demonstrated action against disease-causing viruses. This plant extract contains at least 17 different chemical compounds that can block the replication of HIV, the virus that causes AIDS. Other studies in mice showed that Galla Chinensis extracts were also effective against the herpes simplex virus, even the strains that were resistant to modern day anti-viral medicines like acyclovir. Researchers have also found that the extract can help improve the efficacy of anti-viral medication, which was demonstrated in mouse studies of herpes infection.
Besides fighting off germs in our gut, Galla chinensis is also good for our oral health. In fact, it has gained a lot of popularity in dentistry to stave off tooth decay. The main chemical compound responsible for these benefits is gallic acid, found mostly in the gall of the plant. These extracts can be used to stop the growth of six common cavity-causing bacteria. Furthermore, scientists have reported its effectiveness in not only preventing demineralization of our enamel, but also promoting mineralization for repair. That means that it can help our teeth maintain the protective layer of enamel that is so important for preventing cavities.
Inflammation is a central culprit for many conditions including chronic pain and arthritis. Galla chinensis extract has also been implicated in promoting other diseases such as cancer, diabetes and heart disease. Galla chinensis has been used traditionally for pain relief of inflammatory cause and is thought to have an analgesic effect too. However, little research is available to support this claim. Recently, researchers embarked on a mission to investigate the anti-inflammatory effects of this herb. They discovered that the extract could block the release of cytokines and other signalling molecules in our body that promote inflammation. The same study also reported that the herb has pain relief effects, potentially making it a good alternative to modern-day pain medications. It’s possible that this plant-based therapy could be a great alternative to treating arthritis pain, sparing us the side effects of medicines we normally use.
Recent studies have also found potent antioxidant properties within the gallotannins found in Galla chinensis extract. Many of the chemicals within this category fight free radicals, which are toxins that destroy our cells through oxidative damage. The extracts with the highest levels of galloylation demonstrated the most powerful antioxidant activity. Methyl gallate and gallic acid were also compounds found to have free radical neutralizing power. These antioxidants can help our body protect cells from the damaging effects of reactive oxygen species and other toxins.
7.May Fight Cancer
For centuries, the Chinese have known of Galla chinenesis and its anti-inflammatory properties. As a result, the herb is a great candidate for preventing cancer. Inflammation is one of the driving forces of cancer, and this herb can help keep it at bay. Recently, scientists showed that the extract of Galla chinenesis halts the growth of breast cancer cells. They believe that this power is due to its ability to suppress an important enzyme associated with aggressive tumors.
