Sophora Extract-Anti-Cancer

Sophora flavescens is an herb said to fight cancer and treat a wide range of health conditions. It's a commonly used remedy in traditional Chinese medicine, where it's referred to as "ku shen" (meaning "bitter root"). Some research suggests that the herb may have estrogen-like effects.

The Health Benefits of Sophora Extract

Preliminary studies have determined that Sophora Extract contains a number of compounds with antioxidant effects. There's also some preliminary evidence that this herb may help treat or prevent a variety of health problems. Here's a look at the possible benefits of Sophora Extract:

1)  Asthma

Sophora Extract shows promise in the treatment of asthma, according to a small study published in Phytotherapy Research in 2007. Involving 14 people with asthma, the study found that Sophora root Extract may help ease asthma symptoms, enhance respiratory function, and reduce use of inhaled corticosteroids and beta-agonists (two treatments commonly used for asthma control).

2)  Hepatitis

A small clinical trial published in the Journal of Viral Hepatitis in 2000 suggests that Sophora Extract Matrine may aid in the treatment of hepatitis B. 

For the study, 94 people with hepatitis B were treated with either kurorinone (a compound extracted from Sophora Extract powder) or interferon-alpha (a medication used to slow the growth of the hepatitis B virus) for three months.

There's some preliminary evidence that Sophora Extract may possess anti-cancer properties. For instance, a study published in the American Journal of Chinese Medicine in 2010 suggests that matrine (a compound extracted from Sophora Extract) may combat breast cancer.

In the study, tests on human and mouse breast cancer cells revealed that matrine may help fight breast cancer in part by inducing apoptosis (a type of programmed cell death essential for stopping the proliferation of cancer cells). What's more, matrine appeared to slowed the growth of breast tumors in mice, as well as inhibit the spread of tumors to the lung and liver.
