WHAT IS HOUTTUYNIA CORDATA?

Heartleaf, whose scientific name is Houttuynia cordata, is a flowering plant native to Southeast Asia. There, it is mainly consumed as a vegetable and is rich in antioxidants and has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. The root, leaves and stem of the plant are used in food and drink throughout Asia. Its potential use in skin care has been discovered recently and it is highlighted mainly for its anti-inflammatory properties and its ability to moisturize the skin. The main component of the plant is called flavonoids, which are responsible for its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. The plant also contains a component that binds water and helps to moisturize the skin and maintain its elasticity and softness. The Korean name of Heartleaf can be translated as "10 Medicines", which derives from its versatile properties.
