What is Colchicum Autumnale Extract Colchicine?
Colchicum autumnale, commonly known as autumn crocus, meadow saffron or naked lady, is an autumn-blooming flowering plant that resembles the true crocuses, but is a member of the Colchicaceae plant family, unlike the true crocuses which belong to the Iridaceae family. The name “naked lady” comes from the fact that the flowers emerge from the ground long after the leaves have died back.
Colchicine is a medication most commonly used to treat gout. It is a toxic natural product and secondary metabolite, originally extracted from plants of the genus Colchicum. Adverse effects are primarily gastrointestinal upset at high doses. The chemical name for colchicine is (S)-N-(5,6,7,9- tetrahydro-1,2,3,10-tetramethoxy-9 oxobenzol[a]heptalen-7-yl) acetamide.
Health Benefits of Colchicum Autumnale Extract Colchicine
Colchicum Autumnale Extract Colchicine is used to prevent or treat gout attacks (flares). Usually gout symptoms develop suddenly and involve only one or a few joints. The big toe, knee, or ankle joints are most often affected. Gout is caused by too much uric acid in the blood. When uric acid levels in the blood are too high, the uric acid may form hard crystals in your joints. Colchicine works by decreasing swelling and lessening the build up of uric acid crystals that cause pain in the affected joint(s).
This medication is also used to prevent attacks of pain in the abdomen, chest, or joints caused by a certain inherited disease (familial Mediterranean fever). It is thought to work by decreasing your body’s production of a certain protein (amyloid A) that builds up in people with familial Mediterranean fever.
Colchicine is not a pain medication and should not be used to relieve other causes of pain.
Dosage of Colchicum Autumnale Extract Colchicine
Colchicine 1 to 2 mg is a typical oral dose for gout, corresponding to crocus seed 200 mg or corm 250 mg. Colchicine also has been studied for osteoarthritis of the knee, refractory constipation, and postpericardiotomy syndrome at similar doses. Its narrow therapeutic index requires medical supervision. However, autumn crocus has not been studied at these doses for verification.
Potential Side Effects Of Colchicum Autumnale Extract Colchicine
Gastrointestinal disorders are the most common adverse reactions with colchicine. They are often the first signs of toxicity and may indicate that the colchicine dose needs to be reduced or therapy stopped. These include diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, and abdominal pain.
Colchicine has been reported to cause neuromuscular toxicity, which may present as muscle pain or weakness.
Toxic manifestations associated with colchicine include myelosuppression, disseminated intravascular coagulation, and injury to cells in the renal, hepatic, circulatory, and central nervous system. These most often occur with excessive accumulation or overdosage.
