Health Notes

Cranesbill

Cranesbill
This nutrient has been used in connection with the following health goals
  • Reliable and relatively consistent scientific data showing a substantial health benefit.
  • Contradictory, insufficient, or preliminary studies suggesting a health benefit or minimal health benefit.
  • For an herb, supported by traditional use but minimal or no scientific evidence. For a supplement, little scientific support.

Our proprietary "Star-Rating" system was developed to help you easily understand the amount of scientific support behind each supplement in relation to a specific health condition. While there is no way to predict whether a vitamin, mineral, or herb will successfully treat or prevent associated health conditions, our unique ratings tell you how well these supplements are understood by the medical community, and whether studies have found them to be effective for other people.

For over a decade, our team has combed through thousands of research articles published in reputable journals. To help you make educated decisions, and to better understand controversial or confusing supplements, our medical experts have digested the science into these three easy-to-follow ratings. We hope this provides you with a helpful resource to make informed decisions towards your health and well-being.

This supplement has been used in connection with the following health conditions:

Canker Sores

Cranesbill is an astringent herb that can be used as a mouth rinse to soothe the pain of canker sores. The herb contains tannins that can bind up fluids and possibly relieve inflammation.(more)
Menorrhagia

Menorrhagia

Astringent herbs such as cranesbill have been traditionally used for heavy menstruation.(more)
Crohn's Disease
Dose: Refer to label instructions
Doctors sometimes recommend this astringent herb in combination with several other herbs to sooth the digestive tract. Because it contains tannin, it may help decrease diarrhea.(more)
Diarrhea
Dose: Refer to label instructions
Cranesbill has been used by several North American indigenous tribes to treat diarrhea. The tannins in cranesbill likely account for the anti-diarrheal activity.(more)
Canker Sores
Dose: Refer to label instructions

Historically, herbs known as astringents have been used to soothe the pain of canker sores. These herbs usually contain tannins that can bind up fluids and possibly relieve inflammation. They are used as a mouth rinse and then are spit out. None of these herbs has been studied in modern times. Examples of astringent herbs include agrimony, cranesbill, tormentil, oak, periwinkle, and witch hazel. Witch hazel is approved by the German Commission E for local inflammations of the mouth, presumably a condition that includes canker sores.

Menorrhagia
Dose: Refer to label instructions

Cinnamon has been used historically for the treatment of various menstrual disorders, including heavy menstruation.1 This is also the case with shepherd's purse (Capsella bursa-pastoris).2 Other herbs known as astringents (tannin-containing plants that tend to decrease discharges), such as cranesbill, periwinkle, witch hazel, and oak, were traditionally used for heavy menstruation. Human trials are lacking, so the usefulness of these herbs is unknown. Black horehound was sometimes used traditionally for heavy periods, though this approach has not been investigated by modern research.

Crohn's Disease
Dose: Refer to label instructions

Doctors sometimes use a combination of herbs to soothe inflammation throughout the digestive tract. One formula contains marshmallow, slippery elm, cranesbill, and several other herbs.1 Marshmallow and slippery elm are mucilaginous plants that help soothe inflamed tissues. Cranesbill is an astringent. Clinical trials using this combination have not been conducted.

Tannin-containing herbs may be helpful to decrease diarrhea during acute flare-ups and have been used for this purpose in traditional medicine. A preliminary trial using isolated tannins in the course of usual drug therapy for Crohn's disease found them to be more effective for reducing diarrhea than was no additional treatment.2 Tannin-containing herbs of potential benefit include agrimony (Agrimonia spp.), green tea, oak, witch hazel, and cranesbill. Use of such herbs should be discontinued before the diarrhea is completely resolved; otherwise the disease may be aggravated.

Diarrhea
Dose: Refer to label instructions

Cranesbill has been used by several of the indigenous tribes of North America to treat diarrhea. The tannins in cranesbill likely account for the anti-diarrheal activity1-although there has been little scientific research to clarify cranesbill's constituents and actions.

Parts Used & Where Grown

        I got a great deal on the geranium & clary sage EOs during a BOGO half off on gnc.com. I purchased them to use in my handcrafted bath and body products. The geranium has a sweet, floral scent, but not overly sweet.

                  Comments about NNF Now® Geranium Oil:

                  I was already familar with the benefits of geranium oil (for skin, hair, insomnia just to name a few) and was fortunate to find this quality oil at such a great price.
                  I use this daily as well as in my aromatherapy formulas. I've blended this with other oils for my owm custom fragrance and get compliments daily. I love that this particular oil does not have as heavy a rose scent as some geranium oils I've tried in the past. Goes well with lavender and almost any citrus.

                    When I feel anxiety coming on, I just reach for the geranium oil, sniff it a few times until the anxiety feelings go away and I feel better than new! I would recommend this for anyone who has anxiety or stress feelings that seem to overwhelm them!
