What’s Polygonum Multiflorum Extract?
Reynoutria multiflora, also known as fo-ti or Chinese knotweed, is a species of perennial vine with large leaves and purple flowers planted in the buckwheat family Polygonaceae native to parts of Asia and Central America. Its root has been used in traditional herbal medicine for a variety of conditions. Chinese Folk have used it to relieve insomnia, treat diabetes and even stimulate hair growth. Modern science casts doubt on some of its uses and warns about potential liver toxicity, but some research supports other benefits. The main components of polygonum multiflorum extract are Stilbeneglycoside, lecithin, emodin, rhein and other components. It is associated with hepatotoxicity in patients and now its application is more popular in skincare and cosmetic formulas.
