Health Benefits
1. Acute systemic inflammation
In the determination of whether lotus plumule supplementation alleviates acute systemic inflammation in vivo, of the BALB/c mice for 3 weeks, suggest that low dose and 3-week supplementation of lotus plumule might alleviate acute systemic inflammation in vivo via decreasing the visceral organ inflammation and increasing the production of anti-inflammatory cytokine IL-10 from splenocytes. These results are valuable for developing future nutraceuticals and anti-inflammatory agents from traditional medicinal foods(1).

2. Chronic inflammatory conditions
In the examination of the effects of foods traditionally regarded as ‘heating’ such as litchi, longan, or dried longan, etc. or ‘cooling’ such as hemum flower, bitter gourd, and lotus seed plumule, etc. on the production of PGE(2), a well-known proinflammatory mediator, found that water-soluble extracts of foods traditionally regarded as ‘heating’ enhanced basal PGE(2) production, while those from ‘cooling’ foods significantly inhibited LPS-induced PGE(2) production by the macrophage cell line. This subject merits further study to determine whether appropriate food selection may help patients suffering from chronic inflammatory conditions(2).
