Honey Suckle has been used in Tradition medicine for millennia. In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) the flower of the honey suckle (Jin Yin Hua ) is a key herb in formulas for Flu, sore throats and acute skin rashes. A new study concluded that the vine of the honey suckle would be a safe and promising natural drug in inflammation treatment.
In TCM the vine (Ren dong teng) helps clear pathogenic heat (inflammation) and improves circulation. Reng dong teng is used in formulas to treat pain with swelling and bruising, so it is good for conditions like arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, cervical spondylosis pain, gouty arthritis, etc.
