The benefits of alder on the human body

Mar 28, 2024

Whether you have difficulty maintaining a strong immune system, blood circulation problems or respiratory problems, alder may well offer you a natural and effective solution.

Alder: a powerful ally for the immune system

Recent scientific studies such as that conducted by Tung et al. explored the anti-flu components of the bark of Alnus japonica , a species of alder. The results demonstrated notable antiviral activity. These findings suggest alder as a valuable ally in the fight against viruses but also as a tool to strengthen the overall immune system .

Supercritical carbon dioxide extraction of Alnus glutinosa also yields bioactive compounds with potential application in pharmacology. This time, the benefits are linked to anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antimicrobial and cardiovascular activities.

Alder and its role in improving blood circulation

Alder has remarkable therapeutic properties, particularly in improving blood circulation .

The Alnus genus (scientific name for Alder) is recognized for its vasoprotective properties. That is to say, its ability to protect and strengthen our blood vessels. More specifically, certain subspecies like Alnus cordata or Alnus rubra are traditionally used in folk medicine to treat various vascular conditions, thanks to their key bioactive constituents .

The active ingredients of Alder facilitate the dilation of blood vessels , thus increasing blood flow and reducing blood pressure. This not only contributes to better blood circulation, but also to reducing the risk of cardiovascular diseases.

Alders have an intense anti-inflammatory effect. They help reduce inflammation in the walls of blood vessels, contributing to smoother circulation and preventing potentially dangerous blockages.

Support of the respiratory system by alder

Alder's ability to support the respiratory system is just as impressive as its other health benefits. Its bark, rich in tannins and flavonoids, has an expectorant effect, helping to clear congested airways, thus making breathing easier. Additionally, a study conducted by Tung et al. showed antiviral activities in the bark of Alnus japonica , particularly against influenza, suggesting that Alder may offer protection against various respiratory diseases.

It is essential to note that modern medical science has not yet fully explored the full potential benefits of Alder on the respiratory system. In contrast, people who suffer from chronic respiratory conditions like asthma and bronchitis have reported improvement in their symptoms after incorporating Alder into their health care regimen.
