Hibiscus is a plant rich in phytosterols, flavonoids, ascorbic acid, tannins, vitamins and minerals. Taken as an infusion (the karkadè tea), hibiscus flowers have an antiseptic effect, good for infections such as cystitis, reduce blood pressure and protect blood vessels. Purifying, diuretic, they activate digestion and have a laxative effect. They are also attributed antibacterial properties, which together with vitamin C, make them an ally to fight sore throats, flu, coughs, colds and inflammation of the mucous membranes.
Ash is a medicinal plant known since ancient times for its laxative, diuretic, anti-inflammatory, anti-rheumatic, anti-arthritic properties and for its sap, manna. These properties are due to the presence of coumarins (fraxin, fraxetin, frassinol, esculetin) and flavonoids (quercetin, rutin, hydroxyphenramide), which inhibit the production of endogenous inflammatory mediators such as prostaglandins. Ash is used against joint pains, cellulite and water retention. Its leaves also perform an antidiuretic, antirheumatic action and are useful against difficult digestion.
Watermelon is a fruit rich in vitamins and minerals and has many beneficial properties for the body. It helps detoxify and purify, has a high satiating power and helps to replenish minerals lost through summer sweating. Watermelon contains different types of vitamins and minerals, so it is excellent for recovering substances lost through sweating and in cases of exhaustion due, for example, to summer heat. It also presents different types of antioxidants such as lycopene, to which it owes its red color. Watermelon is a source of minerals, in particular potassium, phosphorus and magnesium, and vitamins, especially Vitamin C. Besides lycopene, it contains another antioxidant, beta-carotene, a precursor of Vitamin A. Watermelon is also rich of a particular amino acid, citrulline. It is a non-essential amino acid, which can be synthesized by the body. Citrulline prevents hypertension and protects the cardiovascular system as it is able to balance the pressure and keep the arterial walls elastic.
Centella contains triterpenes, quercetin, vellarina, sterol flavonoids, tannins, resin, fatty acids and saponins. Its eudermic function, beneficial for the tissues, is due to the combined action of 3 terpene compounds: asiaticoside, Asian acid, madecassic acid, as the free acids of the mixture stimulate the incineration of lysine and proline in the vascular endothelium, the wall that internally covers the vases. The greater availability of these two amino acids increases the production of lipids and collagen, improving the tone and resistance of the tissue of arteries and veins. Collagen synthesis also stimulates skin tone and re-epithelialization in case of injury. Centella asiatica also performs an anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and slightly sedative action and, therefore, is useful for ulcers, even gastric ulcers. By strengthening the vascular tone and reducing capillary permeability, the centella performs an antiedematous action and helps in the treatment of cellulite.
