The Lotus Flower, or Nelumbo nucifera, is an aquatic plant native to eastern Asia and northern Australia. It is also colloquially called a water lily, Indian lotus, bean of India, Egyptian bean, sacred lotus and lotus. Researchers have found antidepressant and sedative properties in the flower which has led to the lotus flower being consumed in all parts of the world.
In Asia, the seeds and fruits of the lotus are used to treat gastrointestinal disorders such as digestion and diarrhoea as well as cardiovascular diseases such as heart palpitations and hypertension.
Insomnia, nervous disorders, skin conditions, cancer and high fevers are also claimed to be treated by the lotus flower.
The extracted leaf juice has been used to treat diarrhoea, fever and alleviate sweating due to the diuretic and astringent activities of the leaf extract.
The leaves are also used to treat various bleeding conditions.
Traditionally, lotus flowers have been used to treat cholera, vascular disorders of the liver, abdominal cramps, and as a cardiac tonic.
