Healing properties of golden hair

Healing properties of golden hair

Bupleurum aureum - a good healer

I would like to acquaint gardeners of the European part of Russia with the golden buckwheat - a valuable medicinal plant that is found in nature only in the Urals and Siberia.

There are many different types of bullocks in Russia. For example, in the academic multivolume work "Flora of the USSR" 42 species are described. In the European part of Russia, the round-leaved bupless is more common than others (Bupleurum rotundifolium). it annual plant... But another species of Bupleurum multinerve is a perennial plant up to 70 cm high and others.

Ours is a completely different matter - Siberian - golden bullop (Bupleurum aureum). It's powerful and beautiful perennial herb Umbellate family with a thick horizontal rhizome, a straight stem as tall as a person, large light green leaves with a bluish bloom and large loose umbrellas of golden yellow flowers. Inhabits sparse forests, along forest edges, in forest meadows, along river banks.

When a bullock blooms, and it blooms at the beginning of the hay season, when summer is at the top, it seems that the sun itself has spread over the meadows. But as soon as the sun wanes, the blush disappears from the meadows - the buckwheat fades. Seeds begin to ripen. They ripen early - at the beginning of August... Ripe seeds are dark brown oblong achenes about 5 mm long.

Properties and application of golden hair

Traditional herbalists have long been using follicle patients. IN folk medicine this plant is used for nervous diseases, scrofula, fever, as an anti-inflammatory, laxative, mild tonic. Leaves are applied to various wounds, ulcers, burns for quick healing.

Pharmacologists paid attention to the golden bollush only in the middle of the last century. Research of Tomsk scientists (V.G. Vogralik and others) it was found that the aerial part of the plant contains saponins, flavonoids (quercetin, rutin, etc.), coumarins, essential oil, carotene, vitamins C and P. permeability of blood capillaries, which improves blood circulation. In official medicine, the buckwheat is known as a good choleretic agent for diseases of the liver and gallbladder.

It has a sokogonic effect on the stomach and pancreas, regulates the activity of the gastrointestinal tract, and is used in the treatment of hypertension. Modern research has established that the buckwheat protects the liver from the effects of various poisons, has anti-tumor activity.

In culture, it is advisable to use not the entire aerial part of the plant (as they say in herbalists), but only the upper 35-50 cm long, leaving the lower part for root nutrition. This is all the more expedient because the content of nutrients in flowers and leaves is 3-5 times higher than in the stems. Harvesting is carried out during flowering. The herb is dried in a dark, ventilated place. It turned out that preparations from dry raw materials are more effective than from fresh ones. Raw materials are stored in paper bags for five years.

In everyday life, an aqueous broth is prepared from it: 1 tablespoon of chopped herbs in 1 cup of boiling water, boil for 5 minutes and leave for 15 minutes. Apply three times a day, 0.5 cups before meals for three weeks. Bupleus is also good as a component of herbal tea, especially after eating fatty foods.

More than half a century ago, Siberian botanists began to conduct research on the introduction of various types of buckwheat into the culture. And they came to the conclusion that the most productive and easy-to-breed species is the golden hairball. They also found that the content of useful active substances in the plants of the bupless grown in culture is significantly higher than that of those that live in nature.

Growing bullocks

It is not very difficult to grow a buckwheat on a personal plot. Seeds sown before winter give amicable shoots in early spring. When sowing in spring, the seeds should be pre-stratified, i.e. soak for 30-40 days in damp sand at a temperature of about 0 ° C (you can in the refrigerator). Sow in early spring in grooves to a depth of 2-3 cm in normal garden soil. Seedlings will grow over the summer. In the fall or early spring of next year, it must be planted in a permanent place. Plants are placed in a lighted place after 30-35 cm. They do not need special care, the bullock is undemanding to the soil, winter-hardy. Bupless plants are durable - in nature they reach 50 years of age, so it can be grown in one place for a long time. In the future, plants can be propagated by dividing the rhizomes.

Unfortunately, bullock seeds are not available for sale in Semena stores, even in Moscow. But everyone can grow it on their site - I will willingly send bullock seeds. They, as well as planting material for maral root, wild garlic, rhodiola, golden currant, alfredia, Siberian kandyk, kalufer and more than 200 other rare medicinal, spicy plants, vegetables, flowers and shrubs can be ordered from the catalog.

Cultural alternative to an endangered species

In nature, Rhodiola rosea is found in narrow areas, but on all continents of the northern hemisphere. It is associated primarily with the Urals, Altai and Yakutia, the mountains of Eastern Siberia. But in the wild, you can find it in all European mountain ranges and even in North America.

This plant is under protection (as an endangered species). It is a criminal offense to carry Rhodiola rosea from the natural environment. But here's how a garden culture can be grown by purchasing seeds and delenki in specialized garden centers and nurseries.

The medicinal properties of the cultivated rhodiola are inferior to the wild plant, but the garden rhodiola forms much more roots (and the bushes are more energetic). In the garden, Rhodiola can be placed not only on decorative beds and in herb gardens, but also on flower beds, rockeries and rock gardens.

When planting, it should be borne in mind that Rhodiola rosea loses its attractiveness in the second half of the season and it is better to combine it with moisture-loving species that can mask it - for example, ferns, hosts, Volzhanka, Rogersia.

The plant contains many different chemicals:

  1. A large number of carotenoids are present. Carotene is a precursor to vitamin A. It prevents the buildup of free radicals. The health of hair and skin is associated with its content. With a lack of vitamin A, vision problems can occur.
  2. The composition contains the content of phytosterols and flavonoids. Their action is associated with anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects. In addition, they have a calming effect.
  3. Excess cholesterol is removed by the action of the saponins contained in the plant. In addition, they are able to enhance the outflow of bile.
  4. A valuable quality in the composition of the plant is the presence of a sufficient amount of ascorbic acid. It is extremely necessary for the body and affects the state of the immune system. The vascular wall becomes stronger, the processes associated with metabolism improve.
