The Health Benefits of Lotus Leaf Extract
The lovely lotus, which lives in the water but pokes its head above the surface, and whose beautiful flowers open in the morning as the Sun rises, and close at night, has charmed eastern and middle eastern cultures for millennium. The pales green leaves, which lay flat upon the surface of the water, reach a diameter of up to 18 inches. They are collected in the summer and autumn, and dried and processed into an herbal extract, which is effective as an astringent, cardiotonic, anti-febrile agent, hypotensive, resolvent, styptic, tonic and vasodilator.

In Chinese medicine, the lotus leaf is classified as a bitter herb.
