ZAITSEGUB intoxicating (lagakhilus)


Perennial herbaceous plant from the family Lamiaceae with branched, woody stems at the base, up to 60 cm high. Leaves on petioles, slightly leathery, three to five-parted or lobed. The flowers are two-lipped, pale pink, collected 4-6 in the axils of the leaves, with sepals equipped with spines, which is why the whole plant is very prickly. The fruit, like all labiales, breaks up into 4 small trihedral brown nuts. The flowering period is extended, individual bushes bloom in May-June, July and even in August and September; accordingly, the fruits do not ripen at the same time.

It grows on semi-desert and desert plains, in the foothills and on pebbles, along the channels of temporary drains. It is especially common in the Samarkand region. Zaytsegub intoxicating has a small area of ​​distribution. It is found only in Uzbekistan and northern Tajikistan, that is, it does not go beyond Central Asia.

For medical use, some other types of hares labis growing in Central Asia and South Kazakhstan are also suitable, in particular, bristly hares lab, gypsum hares lab, etc.

In medical practice, flowers and leaves of the haricot are used. Raw materials are harvested throughout the entire flowering period, from May to October. Since the plant is prickly, it is cut down with a ketmen. They dry it in the shade, in attics and thresh with sticks. Collect the remaining leaves and flowers. The raw material contains tetrahydric alcohol lagohimine (0.6-2%), tannins (up to 14%), essential oil, carotene (7-14 mg%), ascorbic acid (77-100 mg%), vitamin K, calcium salts, organic acids.

Due to the action of lagochilin in the presence of calcium salts, as well as tannins and vitamin K, zaitselip preparations accelerate blood clotting and reduce vascular permeability. In addition, they have a calming effect and somewhat lower blood pressure. Tincture and infusion of flowers and leaves of the hare lip are a good hemostatic agent. They are used for all kinds of internal and external bleeding (traumatic, uterine, hemorrhoidal, pulmonary, nasal, etc.), also for the prevention of bleeding during surgical operations and heavy menstruation, with glaucoma.


Infusion: 10 g of flowers and leaves (or 3 tablespoons of flowers) in a glass of boiling water. It is recommended to insist 6-8 hours, take up to 6 times every day, 1 teaspoon diluted with 1/4 cup of water. Treatment with zaytsebukom can be continued without interruption for 2-3 months.

Sometimes zaitselip products are prescribed at the same time as a sedative. For glaucoma, the infusion is prepared at the rate of 1:20 and taken 2 tbsp. spoons 3 times every day.

Infusion, externally: gauze or cotton balls are moistened with infusion (1:10) and applied to bleeding tissues for 2-5 minutes.

Note. In some patients, the infusion, taken orally, has a laxative effect or causes an increase in the pulse. In such cases, a single dose should be reduced by 2-3 times. Tea or infusion of hareslips is used to quickly relieve fatigue after intense physical labor.
