Latin Name : Nuphar Lutea
Origin Country: France
Nuphar Lutea is a genus of hardy and tender aquatic plants in the family Nymphaeaceae. The genus has a cosmopolitan distribution. Plants of the genus are known commonly as water lilies, or waterlilies in the United Kingdom. The genus name is from the Greek νυμφαία, nymphaia and the Latin nymphaea, which mean “water lily” and were inspired by the nymphs of Greek and Latin mythology.
It is known to be a natural diuretic, helping to flush out toxins from the body. It is also known to help reduce inflammation, improve digestion, and reduce cholesterol levels.
Additionally, it is believed to help improve the immune system, reduce stress, and improve overall mental health. It is also known to be a natural source of antioxidants, which can help protect the body from free radical damage.
People take water lily by mouth for diarrhea and apply it to the body for vaginal conditions, diseases of the throat and mouth, and for burns and boils.
Water lilies are a food source for wildlife and provide protective cover, help cool water temperatures, and absorb water-polluting nutrients.
All parts of the plant are used to treat bacterial infections of the anus, throat, or urethra (gonorrhea), diarrhea, and thick, whitish, yellowish, or greenish vaginal discharge (leucorrhoea).
