California Poppy: natural ingredient of Humor

California Poppy: natural ingredient of HumorThe Californian poppy (Eschol-
tzia californica Cham.) has seda-
tive properties, and hypno-indu-
cing that makes easy to fall asleep, improves sleep quality, reduces anxiety and irritability without causing depression of the central nervous system and does not affect mental alertness.
By virtue of the antispasmodic characteristics is suitable to combat the night muscle contractions, as the flavonoids in the plant optimize the condition of the microcirculation.

Additional findings identified are those against headache and anti-spasmolytic on enteric muscle structure. The active ingredients are the alkaloids in nulceo isoquinoline ring-system (allocriptopine, protopine, marcapine, chelidonine sanguinarine, criptopina). Other alkaloids were found to be the 12-OH-diidrochelirubine and 10-OH-diidrosanguinarine.

Clinical uses

Californian Poppy: natural ingredient of HumorThe Californian poppy is used in the treatment of insomnia and anxiety, often in synergy with other herbs. Certain active in-
gredients existing in the extract, possess the characteristic of blocking the synthe-
sis of catecholamines and enzymatic de-
gradation as well as stop the monoamine oxidase B and dopamine-beta-hydroxyla-

Another capability of the Californian poppy is to limit the processes of dimerization and peroxidation of the enkephalins, increasing, in fact, the action. A possible affinity exists between the alkaloids of the Californian poppy and those of Papaverum sonniferum has led to the hypothesis, by some authors, to have similar action.

Indeed, the Californian poppy is also capable of a spasmo-
lytic outcome on the smooth muscle of the ileum, as well as of conduct calming and sleep-inducing. However, there is no evidence to show the onset of dependence on the Californi-
an poppy or extracts thereof.
The anti-headache activity of this plant is more relevant to vasomotor conformations. There are no known applications on pregnant women or during lactation and for this reason we do not recommend the use in these subjects.

Main constituents of phytocomplex

The main constituents of the plant are represented by a core tetra idroiso quinoline alkaloids, which represent approximately 0.5% of the dry weight of the drug and can be divided into benzylisoquinolinium alkaloids (escholina); alkaloids’ set of pavine, specific varieties Escholtzia (eschol-
tzina, californidina); series of protopine alkaloids (protopina, allotriptamina, criptopina, (X-allocryptopine); aporfinici alka-
loids (N-methyl-laurotetanina, lauroeseholtzina, glaucine); of the group of proto berberine alkaloids (berberine, coptisina, cytosine); benzofenantridinici alkaloids (sanguinarine, che-
leritina, chelidonine, chelirubina, macarpina and diidroma-
carpina). Cyanogenic glycosides, flavonol glycosides (rutin, quercetin glycosides, isorhamnetin): eschollziaxanlina (xan-
thine pigment); carotenoids.
In the roots are more than the total alkaloids stems: › 2.5%. The alkaloids benzo Fenan tridinici are applicable in very small parts in the leaves and in the stems while, along with cx-allocryptopine and protopin, are the most numerous alkaloids of the roots.
