Paeonia lactiflora (White Peony Root) extract may provide support for common neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s disease.
A 2020 study published in Frontiers in Pharmacology revealed the mechanism of Paeonia lactiflora in supporting treatment of Parkinson’s disease. The study showed how Paeonia lactiflora, also called Chinese Peony and White Peony Root, may contribute to novel drug development for the disease.
According to the study, Paeonia lactiflora may provide support for common neurodegenerative diseases by slowing neurodegeneration and thus reducing neuroinflammation and inhibiting intrinsic and extrinsic apoptosis. It may also improve motor and non-motor symptoms by regulating the levels of neurotransmitters.
Parkinson’s Disease and Other Common Neurodegenerative Diseases
Parkinson’s disease has long been one of the most common neurodegenerative diseases worldwide, and to date there is no disease-modifying therapy that can delay its progression. Paeonia lactiflora is the herb most frequently used to support treatment for Parkinson’s disease in Traditional Chinese Medicine, and it is also a potential neuroprotective agent for neurodegenerative diseases. The study explores the underlying mechanism of Paeonia lactiflora in supporting treatment for Parkinson’s disease.
Parkinson’s disease is becoming the fastest growing neurological disorder, with the number of patients expected to double to 14.2 million by 2040. The clinical features of Parkinson’s disease include typical motor symptoms such as bradykinesia, resting tremor, rigidity, and postural instability, as well as non-motor symptoms such as hyposmia, sleep disorders, autonomic nervous dysfunction, and mental and cognitive disorders. At present, no disease-modifying therapy is available to delay the progression of the disease.
