A news report from All Africa indicates that scientists have endorsed the Resurrection plant for improving sleep quality and overall well-being in patients with cancer.
The researchers further explained: “Cancer patients frequently suffer from poor sleep quality. Bryophyllum pinnatum is an herbal medication used in anthroposophic medicine, which has been shown to be associated with improvements in sleep quality during pregnancy with only few and minor or moderate side effects reported. In this study, the sleep quality of cancer patients during treatment with Bryophyllum pinnatum was investigated.
“In this prospective, observational study, cancer patients suffering from sleep problems were treated with B pinnatum (350 mg tablets, corresponding to 50 per cent of leaf pressed juice (Weleda AG, Arlesheim, Switzerland), dosage at physician’s consideration, but most frequently two tablets with evening meal and two before going to bed).
