Balloon Flower Extract (Platycodon Grandifloris) is taken from the root of the Balloon Flower plant.   The extract contains a high concentration of saponins.  Platycodin is a triterpenoid which may help to dilute mucus and enhance immune function.  Balloon Flower extract may also have anti-inflammatory properties similar to those of aspirin, as well as analgesic  properties.

 

Among the substances found in the plant are saponins, betulin, volatile oil, sterols and glucose.

 

The root of the Balloon Flower plant is considered to have the following health properties; astringent, anti-inflammatory, digestive, expectorant, antitussive, analgesic, antibacterial and slightly sedative.

 

The use of Balloon Flower in herbal medicine is primarily associated with lung and throat related ailments and the herb is often combined with Chinese licorice (Glycyrrhiza uralensis) in that regard.

 

The saponins can also inhibit gastric secretion and have ulcer-protective and ulcer-healing properties.

 

Animal experiments on rats have shown that the root has beneficial effect on cholesterol metabolism by lowering “bad” and raising “good” cholesterol. If the root has the same effects in humans has not yet been established and more studies are needed.

 

Recent studies found that the herb is deadly to liver flukes, internal parasite found in the liver of various mammals, including humans.*
