Cercis siliquastrum is a small, deciduous, highly ornamental tree native to Southern Europe and Western Asia. It has an average height of 15 to 20 feet, and its signature characteristic is its prolific display of deep pink flowers. Long, flat pods of heart-shaped flowers hang vertically off old twigs, branches, and trunks come late spring, followed by the appearance of dark green, sometimes bluish green, leaves. The fruits of this handsomely spreading tree are flattened, purplish pods ranging between 2 to 4 inches long. These conspicuous pods contain 4 to 10 hard, bean like brown seeds that are compressed tightly together. Decay of the fruit wall frees the inhabiting seeds, which are then dispersed by wind and wildlife throughout the fall and winter. Flowers of the tree can be put into salads or fried and eaten. There is some documented wildlife use of redbud fruit.

Phytochemical Constituents:


Presence of a nitrile glucoside (lithospermoside) oral contraceptive cyanomethylenecyclohexenyl glucoside an unusual bioflavonoid with inhibition of the anterior pituitary hormones, scar tissue, and Hepatitis C. Detection and distribution of “rutinase”, a rutin-hydrolyzing enzyme. Rutin inhibits platelet aggregation, making the blood thinner and improving circulation. A new stilbene, trans-3, 5, 3′, 4′-tetrahydroxy-4-methylstilbene, along with 10 known compounds, namely piceatannol, dihydromyricetin, catechin, dihydrorobinetin, menisdaurin, teatannin, dasycarponin, β-sitosterol and daucosterin. Terpenoids anti malaria like Artemesia.

Rutin has anti-inflammatory activity. Rutin inhibits aldose reductase activity. Aldose reductase is an enzyme normally present in the eye and elsewhere in the body. It helps change glucose (sugar = glucose) into a sugar alcohol called sorbitol. Too much sorbitol trapped in eye and nerve cell can damage these cells, leading to retinopathy and neuropathy. Rutin has a cardio-protective activity, and we conclude that the observed cardio-protection with rutin may be due to its aldose reductase inhibitory activity, as the enhanced aldose reductase pathway is implicated in the development of left ventricular dysfunction by several studies. The chief constituent is the tannin. The leaves and bark of this tree, especially the bark of the root, possess powerful astringent properties, and may be administered in cases in which this class of agents is indicated, as in diarrhea and dysentery, particularly in the chronic forms and in chronic catarrhal conditions. It is also recommended as a local application in chronic gonorrhea, gleet, leucorrhea, and chronic conjunctivitis, and other affections attended with mucous catarrh.

The phospholipids of the polar lipids of the seeds and buds of the Judas tree and the fatty-acid composition of the N-acylphosphatidylethanolamines, the phosphatidylcholines, and the phosphatidylethanolamines, and also the molecular-species types of the fatty acids of the phosphatidylcholines and the phosphatidylethanolamines have been studied. It has been established that the seeds of the Judas tree contain ten phospholipids. The main fatty acids are palmitic and oleic. Neutral lipids.

Hormones: Auxins (IAA), Brassinosteroids (BR), Cytokinins (CK), Gibberellins (GA), Jasmonic acid (JA), Meristems plant stem cells (PSC), Salicylates (SA).


Plant Stem Cell Therapy Indications:
Polycrest all “The Anti Anterior Pituitary” Agent


Cardio Vascular & Circulatory System:


Anticoagulant, Anti-Thrombosis, Retinal Thrombosis, Arterial Embolism, Inhibits platelet aggregation, Cerebral – Hepatic – Renal Atherosclerosis (degeneration of arterial walls), Buerger’s Disease, Thromboengitiis obliterans. Arteritis of Lower Limbs, Raynaud’s Syndrome, Acrocyanosis of the Hands and Feet.


Opthalmology:


Chronic Styes, Chronic Lachrymal tear duct blockage, Chronic Conjunctivitis, Acute Conjunctivitis, Chronic Catarrhal conditions, Retinopathy, Diabetic Retinopathy, Hypertensive Retinopathy. Hypertensive Glaucoma.

Note: Do not use in Central Serous Retinopathy will cause more bleeding of the eye.


Neurological/Nervous System:


Neuropathy, Antialzheimeran, Improves Cognitive function. Neuroprotection.


Endocrine System:


Antidiabetic. Inhibition of the Anterior Pituitary Hormones; these are the Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH). Thyroid hormone controls the basal metabolic rate and plays an important role in growth and maturation. Thyroid hormones affect almost every organ in the body. Growth Hormone (GH). Adrenocorticotropic Hormone (ACTH) triggers the adrenals to release the hormone cortisol, which regulates carbohydrate, fat, and protein metabolism and blood pressure. Luteinizing Hormone (LH) and Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH) control the production of sex hormones (estrogen and testosterone) and sperm and egg maturation and release. Melanocyte-Stimulating Hormone (MSH) regulates the production of melanin, a dark pigment, by melanocytes in the skin. Increased melanin production produces pigmentation or tanning of the skin; in certain conditions excessive production of melanocyte-stimulating hormone can cause darkening of the skin. Prolactin (PRL) stimulates production of breast milk and is necessary for normal milk production during breast feeding.

Excellent in hyper hormonal states:Growth Hormone, Prolactin pituitary adenoma, Melanocyte Elevated plasma levels of alpha melanocyte stimulating hormone (alpha MSH) are correlated with insulin resistance in obese men, Hyperthyroidism – Graves Disease. Hyper Adrenals; elevated cortisol weight around the waist, Stress, Cushing’s Syndrome, Hypertension, Adrenal Adenoma, Renal Cell Carcinoma, Some Tachycardia, Some hair loss, Conditions of high emotional challenge ADD, ADHD, Cognitive. Hyper Sex Hormones; testosterone-estrogen-progesterone. Excellent for nymphomaniacs, Contraindication in hypothyroidism.


Infectious Diseases:


Antimalarial just like Arteminisin. Babiosis in Lyme disease. Immune modulation.


Dermatology:


Blotchiness of the skin, Acne Rosacea. Scar Tissue.


Gi-Digestive Hepatology:


Hepatitis C antiviral inhibits viral replication. Protects the liver against damage from alcoholism, pharmaceuticals drugs, pollutant substances, viruses, and other xenobiotics, most of which operate by damaging cell membranes.


Psychiatry:


Shyness, Timidity, Antimanic.
