What is Babchi Seed Extract?

Babchi (Psoralea Corylifolia) is a herb with a variety of unique compounds, traditionally touted for its usage in menopause to fight signs and symptoms of estrogen deficiency. There is limited evidence in humans currently, so most conclusions are based upon animal models and in vitro research.

It does appear to have some promise for the purpose of bone regeneration in several rat models of menopause, and this appears to be traceable to several different molecules; the class of prenylated isoflavones appears to enhance bone cell differentiation and said rat studies have confirmed an increase in bone mass.

There are two studies in rats suggesting a possible anti-stress and anti-depressant effect, although they are not to a remarkable degree. The mechanisms of Bakuchiol and its derivatives are highly catecholamine (dopamine, noradrenaline, adrenaline) based, and there is possibility of interactions between Psoralea and classical stimulants.

Beyond the promise but currently unproven benefits to cognition and bone mass, Psoralea has interesting mechanisms in regards to inducing apoptosis in cancer cells (the anti-cancer effects). Psoralea appears to increase the amount of death receptors (TRAILR2/DR5) on the cell surface and enhance signalling via the immune system, particulary TNF-α and other proteins in the TRAIL family.

Overall, however, Psoralea Corylifolia is at a fairly well researched stage that precedes human interventions although no human evidence exists currently; due to the latter, it is difficult to assume the role Psoralea can play in a supplement routine.

Health Benefits of Babchi Seed Extract

There are several medicinal benefits that have been associated with psoralea corylifolia babchi seeds and oil. Babchi contains properties that are antifungal, anthelmintic, aromatic and antibacterial. People use it as a stimulant or even a diaphoretic; at times, people also make use of babchi because it has diuretic and laxative properties. The Chinese believe that psoralea corylifolia is an excellent tonic remedy, for improving overall health and vitality.

The fruit of the psoralea corylifolia plant are believed to have aphrodisiac properties and can be applied to the genital organs, as a tonic. The fruits are generally used for treating febrile diseases, incontinence, premature ejaculation, bed wetting, frequent urination, impotence and lower backaches. The antibacterial properties that are present in the fruit are known to restrict the growth of mycobacterium tuberculosis. The root of the psoralea corylifolia plant can be used in the treatment of dental problems. The plant can also yield a potent medicinal oleoresin which can treat certain kidney disorders, as well as conditions like lumbago.

The plant can be used externally or it can be taken internally. People take babchi seeds orally, for curing various health conditions, such as an intestinal worm infestation. However, an overdose of babchi seeds could bring about some adverse side effects, such as headaches, nausea, diarrhea and vomiting. The use of psoralea corylifolia oil can help cure several skin diseases like tinea versicular, scabies, ringworm and psoriasis. People also use babchi oil for vitiligo treatment.
