Uses & Effectiveness

Overview

Knotweed is an herb. The whole flowering plant is used to make medicine.

Knotweed is used for swelling (inflammation) of the main airways in the lung (bronchitis), cough, sore throat, a mild form of gum disease (gingivitis), and other conditions, but there is no good scientific evidence to support these uses.

KNOTWEED is not a vitamin name. However, Japanese Knotweed, a plant typically found in Japan, has been shown to contain high amounts of resveratrol, a compound known for its potential health benefits including anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.
