Dodder is actually a parasitic annual plant and has typical parasitic adaptations, it does not have any leaves or roots and devoid of the plant pigment chlorophyll, it is therefore absolutely dependent on the host plant for its survival. The dodder uses its parasitic suckers to suck nutrients and to climb over other plants. It is thus a climbing plant and has to grow close to the host plant. Once it reaches a plant, the dodder twines itself and penetrates the stem of the host with the suckers obtaining nutrients and growing on the plant. It grows in a wide range of environmental conditions and on a wide variety of host plants including crops, sown pastures, vegetable, weeds and some tree species. Dodder has no true roots and the leaves are like scales on the stems.
Stems are bright yellow (golden) to green, often completely without chlorophyll. They are smooth, hairless, thread-like about 1 mm thick and branched, twining tightly on host plants. They attach by small suckers which penetrate the stems and leaves of the host plant. Dodder is leafless or has small, scale like, triangular leaves about 1/16 inch long. Bell-shaped flowers are cream colored and have 3–5 petals and about 1/8 inch long; and 3-4 mm in diameter. They usually occur in clusters but occasionally are borne singly. Flowers range in color from white to pink to yellow to cream. They are formed in clusters along the stems between spring and autumn.
Dodder seeds, scientifically called Cuscuta campestris, belong to the Convolvulaceae family. It is an annual parasitic vine. Its thread-like yellowish stems twin over the host plants and grow rapidly over them. Dodder also has various other names, including Tu Si Zi, Beggarweed, Devil’s Guts, Dodder Of Thyme, Hellweed, Lesser Dodder, Scaldweed, and Strangle Tare.
Chinese dodder seed benefits have been known in the history of Chinese medicine since ancient times. It has been used for several health conditions, including treatment of kidney and liver issues.
WHERE DOES DODDER SEEDS GROW?
Dodder is native to temperate North America. About 170 species of Cuscuta grow mostly in the tropical and warm temperature zones where they can reach great heights on the host plant, producing good quality seeds. However, some species can also be found in colder regions but with limited growth.
Dodder breeds all over Europe, Asia, and southern Africa. Dodder favors coastline and hilly areas and is collected in the summertime. In China, it is primarily distributed in Liaoning, Jiangsu, Jilin, Shandong, Hebei, and Henan provinces. Its genus Cuscate is the most common and can be found throughout the U.S. and Canada.
HEALTH BENEFITS OF DODDER SEEDS
Investigations have shown that biologically active components such as alkaloids, flavonoids, saponins, phenolics, lignans, tannins, and fatty acids are present in dodder. These plants have been found useful in various ways, including their antibacterial, antioxidant, hepatoprotective, anti-inflammatory, antitumor properties.
Dodder plant is several phytoconstituents that have immense therapeutic value. This is the reason why dodder seed supplements are widely used. Its renowned benefits for health benefits include the following.
1. ANTIOXIDANT EFFECTS
One species of dodder, C. reflexa, is known for its potent antioxidant effects. Dodder’s antioxidant property comes from its bioactive components, flavonoids, alpha-tocopherol, and rutin, as shown by phytochemical screening. The methanol extract of seed oil of C. pedicellata is found to be the most potent antioxidant. Other dodder species, including three Iranian species, C. approximate, C. monogyna, and C. campestris, were also reported to have a high concentration of phenolic compounds responsible for its antioxidant effects.
2. ANTI-INFLAMMATORY POTENTIAL
In vitro and in vivo tests in a study showed notable anti-inflammatory activity in the aqueous and alcoholic extracts of C. reflexa’s stem. It was found that the Inflammation was triggered by certain substances like lipopolysaccharide and histamine. It was observed that extracts limited the inflammatory response brought about by histamine and other pro-inflammatory mediators. This is believed to be associated with flavonoids, polyphenols, and phenols found in this plant. C. reflexa was reported to significantly inhibit Inflammation by decreasing edema by as much as 80 % in rats.
3. ANTIMICROBIAL EFFECTS
Dodder seeds, particularly from the methanolic extract of C. reflexa, significantly suppress the activity of a wide range of bacteria, including P. aeruginosa, S. aureus, S. dysenteriae, S. boydii, and E. coli, with a notable zone of inhibition. C. australis also shows immense antibacterial potential.
4. EFFECT ON THE REPRODUCTIVE SYSTEM
While the C. reflexa have flavonoids that are said to exhibit an antifertility effect, other dodder species, including C. Chinensis, in its extract and isolated form is reported to improve the reproductive systems in both men and women. It also has other potential benefits for men, including:
Enhancement of penile erection
Improvement in erectile dysfunction
Improved infantile uterus
Better motility of sperm
Dodder seeds work by enhancing the immune system, showing that the correct doses may improve the net weight of the thymus and spleen, hence enhancing immune response.
6. EFFECT ON BONE AND CARTILAGE
Dodder seeds are also found to improve bone density and encourage hyaline cartilage repair. Other benefits include toning kidneys, treating liver disorders, improving vision, strengthening the spleen, easing diarrhea, and Calming the Fetus. Diverse potential therapeutic properties of dodder seeds confirmed by evidence include antitumor effects, improved immune response, improvement in memory, anti-aging activity, antihypertensive potential, anti-osteoporotic effects, reno-protective activity etc.
