Plant Story

 

Vitex rotundifolia, commonly known as beach vitex, is an invasive and sprawling shrub that inhabitssandy coastal areas throughout the Pacific region. It is naturalized in the southern parts of Korea whereJeju Island is located. Its standard Korean name Sunbiginamu is derived from Jeju local language, sumbi-sori, which is a metaphorical word describing the expiratory sound of the diving women after a longbreath held underwater. It is thought that this tree on seashores always hears the exhalation and that iswhy it was possibly given this unique name. The diving women used to use the fruits to cure headachesby taking them internally or kept inside their pillow with the belief that the refreshing scent makes thehead clean. In Traditional Korean Medicine, the fruits and stems were used to remove fever, headache,dizziness, cough, and inflammation.

Anti-inflammatory compounds including casticin, vitexilactone, viteagnusin I, and vitetrifolins are isolatedfrom V. rotundifolia through a scientific investigation. Among isolated compounds, casticin was reportedto suppress proinflammatory cytokines. In other in vivo studies, an aqueous extract of V. rotundifolia fruitshowed inhibition effects on histamine release. For skin brightening effect, water extract of V. rotundifoliashowed better activity than ethanol extract, but total polyphenol contents are higher in ethanol extract.
