Rehmannia Root Benefits:
The root and parts that grow above the ground are used to make medicine. Rehmannia is commonly found in herbal combinations used in Traditional Chinese Medicine and Japanese Medicine. Rehmannia is used for diabetes, “tired blood” (anemia), fever, weakened bones (osteoporosis), and allergies; and as a general tonic.
A study published in 2018 took a look at the potential blood sugar lowering effects of Catalpol, which is a natural product isolated from the root of Rehmannia glutinosa. The in vivo and in vitro research using animal subjects induced with type 2 diabetes found that the rehmannia product was able to improve hepatic insulin resistance in type 2 diabetes.
Catalpol, an an iridoid glucoside isolated from the root of rehmannia chinensis root extract, is known to have a positive effect on neurodegeneration, which plays a major role in chronic health concerns like dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. Neurodegenerative disorders like these are marked by a loss of neurons within the brain and/or spinal cord.
3. Possible Osteoporosis Helper
In TCM, Rehmannia Root Extract's anti-osteoporotic effects are said to be the result of the herb’s ability to regulate kidney and liver function while boosting blood circulation. A scientific review published in 2017 includes the traditional Chinese medicinal uses, phytochemistry, pharmacokinetics and pharmacology of rehmannia in relation to osteoporosis, a disease that causes decreased density and quality of the bones. For this recent scientific review, over 300 research papers and reviews were analyzed.
4. Atopic Dermatitis Aid
In TCM, rehmannia is sometimes used to treat allergy-related problems. An animal study published in the Journal of Ethnopharmacology evaluated the effects of the herb on atopic dermatitis, an itchy inflammation of the skin. This skin condition can often be caused by an allergic reaction.
