The Welsh Daffodil


There's gold in them there hills

The old Klondike saying "There's gold in them there hills" could come true in Brecon. It seems a variety of daffodil which is naturally high galanthamine will flourish there.


Recent medical research and developments have promised some great advances!

It seems galanthamine can be used to inhibit Alzheimers and a synthetic version is used in specialist drugs.


It seems the daffodil produces galanthamine as a defence, it makes more of it when the plant is stressed. The poor soil on the Black Hills provides the ideal environment for this making the flowers there yield very high levels.

The Beautiful DAFFODIL - Discover Its Ancient History and Surprising Medical Benefits

The daffodil is a beautiful flower that has been used for centuries in traditional medicine. It is believed to have originated in the Mediterranean region and was cultivated by the ancient Greeks, Romans, and Egyptians.

Apparently our beloved bloom has various medical uses including helping with anxiety and depression, inflammation, cardiovascular health and more. Research on daffodils has revealed promising findings about its potential medicinal benefits which makes it an interesting natural remedy to explore further.

Scientific Research

Clinical studies on daffodil are relatively few and far between. However, a study conducted in 2012 did find that the flower had potential anti-inflammatory properties when tested in mice. The results showed that it was able to reduce inflammation levels by inhibiting the production of pro-inflammatory cytokines such as TNF-α and IL- Further research is needed to determine if these findings can be replicated in humans.

Published findings on the daffodil have also indicated potential benefits for cardiovascular health. Studies suggest that extracts from the flower may help reduce blood pressure, lower cholesterol levels, and prevent atherosclerosis due to its antioxidants effects which can protect against oxidative stress damage caused by free radicals. More clinical trials are needed to confirm these initial results but they do provide evidence that this natural remedy could potentially be beneficial for heart health issues.

Another area where daffodils might prove useful is mental health support because of its ability to boost moods with positive energy and calming effect it has on an individual’s mind and body.

While more research needs to be done here too before any definitive conclusions can be drawn about its efficacy for treating mental illness; preliminary studies do offer some promising insight into how this beautiful bloom might benefit us psychologically as well as physically

Studies have also indicated that the flower may have antibacterial and antifungal properties, which could be beneficial for treating microbial infections. Daffodils are rich in flavonoids which can help fight off harmful bacteria and fungi.

While more studies need to be done before we can fully understand how this beautiful bloom might benefit us; initial findings do provide encouraging insight into its potential therapeutic uses.
