Plant Story

 

Viola mandshurica, commonly known as Manchurian violet, is a perennial herb in the family Violaceae.It is native to eastern Asia, growing and distributed in Korea, Japan, China, northern part of Russia, andeastern Siberia. V. mandshurica is a medicinal herb with various pharmaceutical functions, includingthat of an anti-inflammatory against bronchitis, rheumatism, skin eruptions, and eczema. In TraditionalKorean Medicine, the extract is considered to be effective in promoting blood circulation to removeblood stasis and in protecting the liver.

A scientific article demonstrated the anti-oxidant effect of V. mandshurica against H2O2-induced DNAdamage, and suppression of cell apoptosis by the extract was also demonstrated. The ethanol extractof V. mandshurica (VME) also showed anti-inflammatory effect by suppressing the elevation of IgE andcytokine levels. Also, the treatment of VME in 3T3-L1 adipocytes inhibited adipocyte differentiation.Another research on this plant investigated the melanogenesis inhibition effect of fermented V. mandsh-urica by decreasing CREB phosphorylation and ERK activation, leading to a reduction in MITF expres-sion, and consequently decreased tyrosinase expression and melanin production.
