Paeonia peregrina Mill.
The large spectacular flowers of this herbaceous perennial plant are bright red, reddish-violet or white and appear against the background of its shiny green leaves in early summer. The peony family has a long history in phytotherapy - it was even named after Peon, the healer of the Greek gods, and is also cultivated for its decorative qualities. The medicinal properties of the white peony lie in its bulging busty roots.
White peony contains monoterpene glycosides (peoniflorin). Peoniflorin has been considered as its important active ingredient and many studies have focused on this substance. The herb also includes benzoic acid and asparagine.
- The herb should only be taken under the supervision of a specialist.

- Pregnant women or nursing mothers should avoid white peony.
