General Description

Teasel is an extract produced from the root of Dipsacus fullonum, a wild flowering plant found in moderate climates around the world.  It is known as a common adjunct to fighting chronic Lyme Disease and has many other medicinal properties.  Teasel increases circulation and pulls toxins (including bacteria and fungi) from the tissues of the body, which allows anti-microbial agents to destroy the pathogens.  The diuretic properties of Teasel support the liver to rid the body of liver toxicity.  It will also assist in detoxifying the body in the event of a Herxheimer reaction.

Teasel - Osteoarthritis (dipsacus saponins)

The present study aimed to determine the molecular mechanism of treating osteoarthritis with dipsacus saponins by inhibiting the apoptosis of chondrocytes. A total of 30 New Zealand rabbits were randomly divided into 2 groups: A control group and a model group. The osteoarthritis model was established using the HULTH method.

Teasel - Lyme (Herbal)

Numerous tick-borne infections cause problems for humans and animals worldwide. Lyme disease is the best known, but babesiosis, bartonellosis, anaplasmosis, ehrlichiosis, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, and many others are also serious problems. Many studies have confirmed that herbs and herbal extracts can help to repel the several types of ticks (as can nonchemical means such as wearing long pants and tucking them into socks) that spread these diseases, as well as inhibit their reproduction.

Teasel - Lyme (Growth)

Fresh first year roots from Dipsacus sylvestris HUDS. were extracted with 70% ethanol, ethyl acetate as well as dichloromethane. Extracts were solubilized in water (lipophilic extracts with addition of polysorbate 80) and tested for their activity against Borrelia burgdorferi sensu stricto in vitro during an eight-day period using amoxicillin as standard.

Teasel - Antioxidant (HPLC)

A highly reliable high-performance liquid chromatography method was developed and validated for determining quality of extracts from the leaves of Dipsacus sativus (Linn.) Honck. Under optimum conditions, the chromatography profile of eight compounds was collected, with compound saponarin as marker.

Teasel: Antiseptic

The diffusion of herbal remedies for therapies on domestic animals in Sardinia (Italy) was investigated by means of expeditions in the regional territory. The monitoring of knowledge related to plant species utilised in the past for traditional veterinary practices, favoured the recovery of ancient local traditions related to veterinary ethnobotany.
