◆ Some ingredients of ivy have a phlegm-reducing effect. This means it helps to reduce the accumulation of mucus in the respiratory system. Saponins and alkaloids called imidine increase lung mucosal secretions, and these mucus can be expelled through the mouth when coughing. Coughing sometimes causes bronchospasm spasm, and this extract can relieve spasm.
◆ Ivy extract is particularly beneficial for patients with specific diseases such as asthma and bronchitis. Symptoms of these diseases include shortness of breath, cough, and severe wheezing. This plant essential oil can help promote lung-related immune functions. As the thickness of the mucosa decreases, the liquid can be more easily discharged.
◆ Emulsions or ointments containing ivy extract also have the effect of preventing wrinkles. It helps hydrate dry skin and reduce facial skin fine lines. In addition, some ointments containing this extract can relieve pain associated with osteoarthritis and rheumatism. If skin inflammation burns or damages, ivy extract can promote cell regeneration and healing.
◆ This species is a toxic plant included in the China Plant Atlas Database. Its toxicity is the intraperitoneal injection of 500mg / kg of chloroform extract of ivy branches and leaves, which increases muscle tone, vertical tail, slow breathing, clonic convulsions, and death. However, there are no reports of unsafe external use of ivy extract.
◆ In the case of short-term use in small amounts, the ivy extract does not cause any side effects. However, if children under 10 years of age use this extract to treat respiratory diseases, the dose should be reduced as appropriate. Because it contains saponin ingredients can cause nausea and vomiting. Pregnant women should not use it, because ivy has the effect of promoting uterine contraction, so it is easy to cause premature birth. In addition, do not apply the ivy plant directly to the bare skin, otherwise it may cause severe skin allergic reactions.
