Butterfly Pea Tea Thai 'Anchan' wild blue herbal flower tea Clitoria ternatea

Butterfly Pea is an ancient Thai herbal plant. Its flower has three different colors white, blue, and purple. Not only beautiful, Butterfly Pea first gained its reputation as a powerful hair strengthener & skin conditioner in the traditional Thai remedies. Leaves, flowers, and roots are all used as medicinal herbs. It provides anthocyanin to improve eyesight, treat opthalmitis and eye infections, nourish hair, conditi0on skin & provides antioxidants and boost body immunity.

Anthocyanins are highly concentrated in the deep blue pigments of wild Butterfly Pea, which contain higher levels of anthocyanins than many other foods. They belong to a group of natural compounds, called flavonoids, found in the skins of many plants that have high antioxidant capacity and other bioactivity.
Researchers focused on the relationship between anthocyanin consumption and type 2 diabetes by examining data from over 200,000 men and women participating in long-term health studies.
In the study, they found that higher consumption of anthocyanins was associated with lower risk of type 2 diabetes, possibly due to their high content of anthocyanins, said Walter Willett, MD, DrPH, Professor of Epidemiology and Nutrition at Harvard School of Public Health and the studys lead author.

traditionally sun-dried in bamboo baskets in Thailand
Clitoria ternatea is a twining evergreen
perennial herb with compound leaves. The
stems are pubescent and spindly. The
flowers are in various shades of blue or
pure white. The fruits are pods resembling
thin peas. The plants belong to the family
Fabaceae. The roots, seeds and flowers have
medicinal value and are used to treat
various ailments (Gomez and Kalamani,
In the present study the levels of some nonenzymic
antioxidants namely ascorbic acid, reduced glutathione and total carotenoids were estimated in leaves and flowers of two varieties of Clitoria ternatea,one bearing blue flowers and the other bearing white flowers.

Sample                       Ascorbic acid (mg) | Reduced glutathione (n moles/g)| Total carotenoids (mg)
Blue flower    
                                  5.94                                    25.68                                        26.58

Proanthocyanidin with its high content of the flavonol quercetin improves eyesight, treat opthalmitis & eye infections, nourishes hair & skin, provides antioxidants and boosts body immunity. Clinical research in butterfly pea indicates that it has potential health effects against eye degeneration caused by diabetes, glaucoma, cataract and other eye related problems. It is said that the butterfly pea flower is one of the most valuable natural herbal plants in Thailand.

Anthocyanins and anti-diabetic properties

The consumption of a diet low in fat and rich in antioxidants may reduce the risk of obesity and insulin resistance. [26-28] A number of recent reports indicate that consumption of fruits and vegetables, especially rich in polyphenols, decrease the incidence of type-2 diabetes, a condition associated with insulin resistance.[29-31] Insulin resistance is a disorder in which insulin inadequately stimulates glucose transport in skeletal muscle and fat and inadequately suppresses hepatic glucose production. The mechanisms that prevent the ß-cell of the pancreas from secreting sufficient amounts of insulin to overcome peripheral insulin resistance are not yet fully understood. Oral hypoglycemic agents that directly stimulate insulin release from ß- cells (e.g., sulfonylurea-based drugs), however, can elevate insulin secretion from islets of type-2 diabetic patients sufficiently to overcome peripheral insulin resistance and normalize blood glucose levels. One of the disadvantages of using sulfonylurea-based drugs is that they fail to control normal blood glucose levels[32] These drugs also adversely affect the ability of ß-cells to secrete consistent insulin level and cause weight gain.[32] Hence, it would be beneficial if dietary constituents could regulate blood glucose levels or induce insulin production by pancreatic ß-cells in the type-2 diabetic condition. However, there is little clinical evidence that food factors can do this.

Insulin secretion

It is well known that dietary antioxidants, including anthocyanins, protect pancreatic ß-cells from glucoseinduced oxidative stress.[10] Recently Jayaprakasam et al. [11] demonstrated glucose-induced insulin release from pancreatic ß-cells by anthocyanins and anthocyanidins.
In few in vitro and animal studies,[39,40] anthocyanin extracts were found to have potent alpha-glucosidase inhibitory activity, suppressing the increase in postprandial glucose level. However, no further extensive in vivo studies and clinical evaluation of these compounds have yet been carried out to validate the in vitro observations

Anthocyanins are the largest group of water-soluble pigments in the plant kingdom, known collectively as flavonoids. More than 8000 flavonoids, and 500 anthocyanin structures had been reported by the year 2000 and more are continually being isolated. Anthocyanins are believed to display an array of beneficial actions on human health and well-being. Due to our increasing understanding and awareness of the potential beneficial human health effects, research on anthocyanins has recently intensified. During the past two decades an increasing number of studies have investigated the diverse protective effects elicited by polyphenolics present in various fruits and vegetables. These effects include antioxidant, anti-allergic, anti-inflammatory, anti-viral, antiproliferative, anti-mutagenic, anti-microbial, anti-carcinogenic, protection from cardiovascular damage and allergy, microcirculation improvement, peripheral capillary fragility prevention, diabetes prevention, and vision improvement.
