(The queen of mountain)
The edelweiss (Leontopodium nivale) is an alpine flower which lives at high altitudes, up to 3000m / 10,000 ft, where UV radiation is strong. The flowers are covered with thin hollow filaments that have nanoscale structures (100-200nm) on their periphery.
They will absorb ultraviolet light, which wavelength is around the same dimension as the filaments, but reflect all visible light. This explains the white color of the flower.
Because the layer of filaments absorbs UV light, it also protects the flower’s cells from possible damage due to this high energy radiation.
Leontopodium alpinum, better known as edelweiss (German for noble whiteness and understood as noble purity) is a European mountain flower and member of the sunflower family long honored symbolically in national currency, badges, song, and other forms of national pride. It is also the national flower of Switzerland. Of medical interest, the plant has been used in traditional folk medicine to treat abdominal and respiratory disorders.
In 2003, Dobner et al. assessed the antimicrobial activity of extracts and various individual constituents of edelweiss. Using agar diffusion assays as well as the microbroth dilution method to determine minimum inhibitory concentrations, they observed significant antimicrobial activities exhibited against Enterococcus faecium, Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus pneumoniae, and Streptococcus pyogenes strains. The investigators concluded that their findings buttress the previously observed traditional folk medicine approaches to abdominal and respiratory conditions (J. Ethnopharmacol. 2003;89:301-3).
Edelweiss has a long history of use in traditional medicine but there is little scientific research to support the claims of its effectiveness in topical formulations.
In 2004, some of the same researchers conducted a study using Leontopodium alpinumthat offered dermatologic implications. Specifically, they examined the aerial (that is, capitula, inflorescence leaves, stems, stem leaves and leaves of the basal rosette;Phytochem. Anal. 2006;17:291-8) parts of edelweiss for their in vivo topical anti-inflammatory activity on Croton oil–induced ear dermatitis in mice. They found that dichloromethane extract yielded a dose-dependent decrease in edema, with the extract imparting greater activity than methanol and 70% aqueous methanol extracts. Dichloromethane extracts from the aerial parts of the plant were also found to be more active than dichloromethane root extracts. The investigators noted that fatty acids contribute significantly to the anti-edema effect of the aerial dichloromethane extract while the anti-inflammatory activity of the root extract could be attributed to bisabolane sesquiterpenes, tricyclic sesquiterpenes, coumarins and lignans (Planta Med. 2004;70:502-8).
In May 2006, some of the same researchers assessed the anti-inflammatory and analgesic effects of the dichloromethane, methanolic and carbon dioxide extracts of the aerial parts and roots of edelweiss after oral administration to rats and mice. In pretreated specimens, histologic examination of the paws of rats revealed significant decreases in inflammation. In the rats’ paw edema assay, the most activity was seen in the lipophilic extracts of the aerial plant parts, with swelling diminished by 80% from the dichloromethane extract and 72% from the carbon dioxide extract. Analgesic effects were more salient in association with treatment from the root extracts, compared with the aerial parts, which the authors suggested was indicative of varying mechanisms of action. Also, they evaluated the antioxidant properties of some of the extracts to ascertain any correlations with the observed anti-inflammatory characteristics (J. Ethnopharmacol. 2006;105:421-6).
