Indian Serpentine

Indian Serpentine

Remedy able to lower blood pressure and counteract anxiety and insomnia, to be taken under medical supervision
Rauwolfia serpentina, or Indian serpentine, is a medicinal plant of the Apiaceae family known and appreciated for centuries thanks to its health benefits. From the roots of the plants of at least 18 months a remedy with hypotensive, antiarrhythmic and vasodilatory properties is obtained. Indian Serpentine is therefore used to treat anxiety, hypertension and insomnia. Its mechanism of action is well known and is based on an alkaloid present in the remedy, the reserpine, which acts on the nervous system by blocking the vesicular monoamine transporter, VMAT, which is used for the transport of norepinephrine, serotonin and dopamine and that does not reach the synapses. This avoids the activation of the sympathetic nervous system with a consequent lowering of blood pressure (Lobay et al, Integr Med, 2015). Regarding the intake of the remedy, however, even if you can buy it on the Internet, always ask your doctor for advice since it may cause side effects such as abundant salivation or bradycardia. Avoid prolonged use of the Indian Serpentine because stiffness and tremors may occur.
