The plantain plant is also known as Plantago lanceolata or Plantago major. Not to be confused with the banana-like vegetable that is commonly eaten in many Hispanic cultures, it is a perennial plant with almost worldwide distribution.For decades, herbalists have considered it a useful remedy for a cough, wounds, inflamed skin, and dermatitis.
Bruised or crushed plantain leaves are applied topically to treat insect bites and stings, eczema, and small wounds or cuts. The leaves and seeds are used to extract the beneficial compounds of this plant.
Plantain leaf extract comes in nearly 250 species, the most widely distributed being P. lanceolata and P. major. Grown mainly in India, the seeds of Plantago ovata contain psyllium (a soluble fiber and the main ingredient in Metamucil), which is used to treat constipation.
Modern studies do confirm that the plant, and specifically the leaves are loaded with active compounds that give the extract anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and antioxidant magic properties. An in-vitro (made on chicken membrane, not on real people) study in Phytotherapy Research found that Plantain Leaf Extract in large concentrations has a comparable soothing effect to anti-inflammatory big shot, hydrocortisone.
