Weight Loss Aid

 In Arab countries, lady's mantle leaves have traditionally been used as a natural weight loss aid. Intrigued by the reputation of lady's mantle as a weight loss promoting herb and three other medicinal plants with purported weight loss benefits, a team of researchers carried out a study to investigate the effects of a herbal mixture containing extracts of lady's mantle (Alchemilla vulgaris L.), cumin, horse mint and olive tree leaves in 66 overweight and obese volunteers. Previously, extracts of lady's mantle and olive leaf had been shown to increase basal metabolic rate (indicative of increased fat burning), while mint and cumin have been used for centuries to suppress appetite and to stimulate digestive enzymes. During the 3-month study period, the volunteers experienced progressive and significant weight loss, suggesting that one or more of the plant extracts included in the formulation may in fact have weight loss promoting properties.

 

Lady's Mantle Tea as Cough Remedy 

Hot drinks, such as herbal tea, are an important part of diets aimed at preventing the common cold. In one study, a team of scientists at the Cardiff University's Common Cold Centre discovered that consumption of a hot drink containing apple and blackcurrant juice immediately reduced common cold symptoms such as a sore throat, runny nose, cough, and sneezing. These effects were not observed when the same juice mixture was consumed at room temperature, suggesting that in this case it was merely the temperature of the drink that made it effective against common cold symptoms.

In folk medicine, lady's mantle tea has been used as a remedy for sore throats, and considering the findings of the CardiffUniversity study, it seems reasonable to assume that lady's mantle tea may indeed help relieve common cold symptoms such as a sore throat or cough simply due to its high temperature. But new evidence suggests that lady's mantle tea may also have sore throat combating properties that are not linked to the temperature of this herbal infusion.

 

Lady's Mantle – A Medicinal Plant with Strong Antioxidant Properties

Drinking lady's mantle tea is a great way to keep your antioxidant levels up while enjoying a caffeine-free hot beverage. A Bulgarian study published in the November 2006 issue of the journal Phytotherapy Research found that an infusion made by steeping dried lady's mantle leaves in hot water had the strongest antioxidant activity among the tested herbal infusions, as determined by the ABTS method. This study assessed the antioxidant activity of infusions of 23 medicinal plants, including pot marigold flowers, barberries, leaves of wild celery, tarragon, bilberries, spearmint and basil.

 

 

Traditional Uses (Beyond Prevention of Menstrual Cramps)

If you ask a herbalist about the health benefits of lady's mantle tea, you will likely hear something about the use of lady's mantle as a natural remedy for menstrual problems or other hormone-dependent conditions affecting women. In herbalism, lady's mantle is commonly used to prevent and treat menstrual cramps, excessive menstrual bleeding, endometriosis, and uterine fibroids. Proponents of herbal and folk remedies may also recommend lady's mantle tea for muscle spasms, diarrhea, nausea and certain gastrointestinal disorders. However, scientific evidence is currently lacking to support these traditional uses.
