Rose water contains 0.1% rose oil (Rosa damascena oil), which as a building block of rose water contains a bouquet of over 50 water-soluble substances: Phenylethyl alcohol, Polyphenols, Citronellol, Geraniol, Nerol and others. The rose water obtained from the distillation of rose oil has been used in cosmetics, medicine and perfumery since ancient times. The ancient Romans used it for refreshment and as a natural cure for depression. In medicine, it is used as an antibacterial, antiseptic and anti-inflammatory agent.
Rose water has a complex effect on the human body, expressed as:
The Liquorice extract stimulates normal protective mechanisms that prevent the formation of ulcers. The extract increases the number of mucus-producing cells, improves the quality of the mucus, increases the life span of the intestinal cells and improves the blood supply to the intestinal mucosa.
A recent study has shown that Liquorice inhibits helicobacter pylori, and its action is similar to that of bismuth.
Ginger is a popular spice that is used worldwide. The chemical analysis of ginger shows that it contains over 400 different compounds. The most basic ingredients in ginger rhizome are carbohydrates (50-70%), lipids (3-8%), terpenes and phenolic compounds.
Ginger is believed to act directly in the gastrointestinal system to reduce nausea. Ginger is also used to treat a variety of other gastrointestinal problems such as morning sickness, colics, upset stomach, gas, bloating, heartburn, flatulence, diarrhea, loss of appetite, and dyspepsia (discomfort after meals). Experimental studies have shown that ginger and its active ingredients, including 6-gingerol and 6-shogaol, have anticancer activity against gastrointestinal cancer.
A recent study clearly showed that an aqueous extract of ginger is able to protect the gastric mucosa from stress-induced mucosal lesions and inhibits gastric acid secretion probably by blocking the H +, K + -ATPase activity, to inhibit the growth of H. Pylori and to propose anti-oxidant protection against gastric damage induced by oxidative stress.
Chamomile extract is used to relieve inflammatory conditions of the gastrointestinal tract and mild digestive disturbances (such as dyspepsia, flatulence, abdominal swelling, and burping).
Chamomile, high in flavonoid apigenin, can soothe damaged and inflamed mucous membranes. A clinical study has shown that apigenin suppresses helicobacter pylori and the other active ingredient in chamomile (chamasulan) chamomile, reduces the effects of free radicals.
