Butterfly pea flowers, native to Southeast Asia, has been a staple in traditional medicine, cuisine, and cultural rituals for generations. It is known by various names, such as "bunga telang" in Malaysia and "dok anchan" in Thailand. For centuries, they have been used in Ayurvedic and Traditional Chinese Medicine systems. In Ayurveda, they were believed to have cooling properties and were used to balance the body's doshas, particularly Pitta. In TCM, butterfly pea flowers were used to promote vitality, cognition, and to soothe inflammation.

 

In recent years, modern science has taken an interest in butterfly pea flowers due to their rich content of bioactive compounds, including anthocyanins and flavonoids, which contribute to its deep blue color, also found in bluberrries, blackberries and cherries. These compounds are known for their antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, which help protect the body from oxidative stress and reduce the risk of chronic diseases.

 

Additionally, a few studies have shown that butterfly pea flowers may offer benefits for eye health. The flower's anti-inflammatory properties help alleviate discomfort from conditions like conjunctivitis, while its promotion of healthy blood circulation supports optimal eye function. Butterfly pea flowers may also enhance vision in low-light conditions and offer protection against UV damage, contributing to overall eye well-being.
