Peony tea is one of the oldest remedies in traditional Chinese medicine, according to the website MountainRoseHerbs.com. The name peony is derived from Paeon, the Greek physician of the gods. In Japan, where it was introduced by Buddhist monks from China, peony is considered a symbol pf prosperity. A variety of traditional uses for peony tea have been confirmed by modern research.



A 2010 study in "Die Pharmazie" tested 18 active constituents of peony that are thought to contribute to inhibiting blood coagulation or platelet aggregation. Four compounds, paeonol, paeoniflorin, benzoylpaeoniflorin and benzoyloxypaeoniflorin, were found to contribute to improving blood circulation by inhibiting both platelet aggregation and blood coagulation. Five other compounds, methylgallate, catechin, paeoniflorigenone, galloylpaeoniflorin and daucosterol, may also have an anti-coagulating effect.



A study in the 2010 "Phytomedicine" showed an antioxidant effect of peony root extract on diabetes-related oxidative stress in rat kidneys. Peony extract significantly lowered urinary albumin -- a sign of poor kidney function. Also, at treatment levels of 100 mg per kg body weight and 200 mg per kg body weight, peony extract reduced signs of kidney tubule injury. Levels of antioxidant enzymes superoxide dismutase and catalase markedly increased with peony extract at 200 mg per kg. The researchers concluded peony extract can prevent the oxidative stress effects of diabetes on kidneys.



A study on the ability of paeonol -- a major active element from the root bark of peony -- to dilate blood vessels was tested in a 2010 "Vascular Pharmacology" study. Paeonol had the ability to relax rat aorta by 95.6 percent. Paeonol also markedly elevated production of nitric oxide -- a compound that relaxes blood vessels. The researchers concluded paeonol has its relaxing effects on blood vessel walls by regulating the flow of calcium -- which functions as a signal to promote muscle contraction.



Paeoniflorin -- a primary bioactive component of peony -- was tested for its antioxidant effects on the liver, in a 2010 "Archives of Pharmacal Research" study.

The researchers tested the ability of peoniflorin to prevent oxidative stress caused by lipopolysaccharide, a common antigen that induces inflammation and tissue damage. The rats were injected with peony extract at levels of 2.5, 5.0 or 10 mg per kg body weight for 20 days. On Day 21, the rats received injections of lipopolysaccharide, and levels of several inflammatory chemicals, including glutamate oxaloacetate transaminase, glutamate pyruvate transaminase, lactate dehydrogenase and malondialdehyde were found to be inhibited, while certain antioxidants, such as superoxide dismutase, catalase and glutathione peroxidase, were preserved by the peony extract. The researchers conclude peony extract can protect against liver inflammation.
