Summary of Celastrus paniculatus
Primary information, health benefits, side effects, usage, and other important details
Celastrus paniculatus is a woody fruit-bearing vine. The fruit of the plant contains seeds used in Ayurveda medicine.
Celastrus paniculatus seeds are used to alleviate cognitive issues and promote intestinal health. The seeds can also be made into an oil, which is sometimes used during massage. The oil is used to alleviate skin inflammation and has a mild sedative effect.
Studies done on rats suggest that Celastrus paniculatus seeds can also reduce cholesterol in unhealthy rats.
Animal evidence suggests Celastrus paniculatus can protect the brain and improve cognition, but single dose supplementation is ineffective. The effect becomes stronger over two weeks of supplementation.
Celastrus paniculatus seeds are a promising supplement for neurological and intestinal health, but much more research is needed before they can be specifically recommended for supplementation.
