The composition of the flowers of immortelle helps to treat diseases of the liver, gallbladder, stomach and kidneys. This is due to its choleretic, analgesic, antibacterial, hemostatic, and anti-inflammatory properties.
The main therapeutic property of immortelle flowers is their ability to increase bile secretion. The stearic compounds contained in the flowers contribute to this: the bile ducts are disinfected, the functional activity of the stomach is regulated, and the kidneys are not irritated. That is why caraway flowers are one of the components of choleretic tea.
Due to their ability to stimulate bile excretion, these flowers are indispensable for kidney inflammation, cystitis, jaundice, diabetes and atherosclerosis. The use of infusions of immortelle flowers is recommended for cholelithiasis. The antimicrobial effect of these flowers is explained by the presence of arenarin, an antibiotic that affects and destroys bacteria.
Immortelle flowers are also useful for improving food digestion, as they help to improve the functioning of the stomach and normalize the secretion of digestive enzymes. Therefore, this plant is used in the treatment of gastritis, pancreatitis and atonic constipation. Thanks to its flavonoid compounds, immortelle flower extract helps relieve intestinal spasms.
For skin diseases, such as allergies and eczema, oil from immortelle flowers is used because it has antiseptic and healing properties.
