information-leaf.pngAdditional Information On Huai Hua 
In traditional Chinese medicine Huai Hua cools the blood, stops bleeding and purges liver fire. 

Huai Hua properties, Yin and Yang: Pagoda tree flowers are plants that are cool in nature. Pagoda tree flowers tend to help people who have too much heat in their body. Balance between yin and yang is a key health concept in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Those who have too much Heat in their body are said to either have a yang excess (yang is hot in nature) or a yin deficiency (yin is cold in nature). Depending on your condition pagoda tree flowers can help restore a harmonious balance between yin and yang. Yin is receptive and passive while yang is aggressive and active. Applied to herbs yin embodies the qualities of cold, damp, immobility and substance. Yang embodies the qualities of warmth, dryness, movement and ephemerality.

5 Benefits of Huai Hua 

Antioxidant Properties: Sophora japonica contains compounds with antioxidant properties, such as quercetin and rutin. Antioxidants help neutralize harmful free radicals in the body, which can contribute to oxidative stress and various health issues.

Anti-Inflammatory Effects: Some studies suggest that compounds found in Sophora japonica may have anti-inflammatory effects. Inflammation is associated with various chronic diseases, and substances that can reduce inflammation may have potential health benefits.

Cardiovascular Health: Certain components of Sophora japonica, including rutin, have been investigated for their potential cardiovascular benefits. Rutin, in particular, is thought to help strengthen blood vessels and improve circulation, which may contribute to heart health.

Skin Health: Extracts from Sophora japonica have been used in traditional medicine for skin-related issues. The antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties may contribute to promoting skin health, and some products containing Sophora japonica extracts are used in skincare.

Potential Antimicrobial Activity: There is some research suggesting that Sophora japonica extracts may have antimicrobial properties. This could be beneficial in combating certain types of bacteria or fungi, although more research is needed to establish the extent of these effects.
