About Isatis Root
Isatis root has been used for thousands of years as a fever-reducer and anti-viral in traditional Chinese medicine. It was especially used for clearing heat-toxicity, relieving sore throat, and cooling the blood. Today, isatis root is used as a natural antibiotic. People commonly use it for fever reduction, colds, flu, skin infections, sore throat, herpes, chicken pox, and hepatitis.
Scientific Studies on Isatis Root
Studies show that it reduces fevers by killing pathogens found in both viruses and bacteria and eliminating factors of peroxy radicals. Many scientific studies have been done that show the benefits of isatis root. An indirubin derivative found in isatis root has been found to inhibit cancer cell replication and has anti-leukemic actions (Ji et al., 1991). Additional modern research shows that isatis root has many positive effects, including:
- improvement of immune functions
- elimination of leukemia cells
