Traditional and Empirical Usage: Herbal Extract Company Mistletoe 1:1

Mistletoe, originating from the Celtic name meaning ‘all-heal’, has been used as a traditional medicine in Europe for centuries to treat various diseases like:

  • cancer
  • cardiovascular disorder
  • epilepsy
  • infertility
  • hypertension
  • arthritis

Constituents: Herbal Extract Company Mistletoe 1:1

  • Current phytochemical studies have shown that lectins, hetero-dimeric glycoproteins, polysaccharides, viscotoxins, alkaloids, lipids, triterpenes, peptides, flavonoids, cyclitols and amines are principal bioactive phytochemicals of mistletoe.
  • The phytochemical profile of mistletoe depends on the host trees of this plant.
  • Being a semiparasitic plant normally found growing on a variety of trees, especially pine, poplar, oak, apple trees, locust trees etc. mistletoe can biosynthesise its own compounds but it can also take some nutrients from the host trees.
  • It has been suggested that pharmacologically active compounds may pass from the host trees to the parasitic plants.
  • So far literature studies haven’t revealed exactly what compounds are only biosynthesised by mistletoe and that could be taken from the host trees.

Pharmacological Activity: Herbal Extract Company Mistletoe 1:1

Mistletoe, a semi-parasitic plant romantically associated with stealing a kiss at Christmas, is frequently used in the complementary therapy of cancer and other immunological disorders. Several lines of evidence indicate that mistletoe improves patient survival, reduces the damage caused by conventional cancer therapies and increases patients’ quality of life.5

Crude extracts and isolated chemical constituents from mistletoe have exhibited significant medicinal effects in experimental models and in patients with cancer, autoimmune and inflammatory conditions. Recent randomised clinical trials have suggested improved overall survival and quality of life in cancer patients treated with different mistletoe preparations.6

Mistletoe extracts exert their anticancer effects both by modulating the immune system as well as directly having cytotoxic activities on cancer cells, with a less potent effect on normal, healthy cells. It possesses TNFα activity to strengthen the immune system to combat cancer. In line with its anticancer activity it is rich in antioxidants that confer protection against cancer as well as neurodegeneration.7

Extracts from mistletoe have shown evidence of vasodilation and thus, antihypertensive effects. The antihypertensive effect of mistletoe was recorded in 1907 by a French physician, Renѐ Gaultier. Viscysate, a commercially available mistletoe preparation from around 1930s to 1950s, was used as a vasodilator. However only recently has antihypertensive work on mistletoe re-emerged. A 2007 in vivo study indicated that mistletoe induced a significant decrease in blood pressure without causing any change in heart rate. This led the team to postulate that mistletoe most likely decreases blood pressure via the sympathetic pathway. A 2014 pilot study on the assessing the antihypertensive effect of mistletoe also showed promise.8,9,10
