Sophora flavescens which in Chinese means “bitter root,” is an herb used in traditional medicine to treat a wide variety of symptoms, with claimed effects on the liver, intestinal tract, and skin. Lab and animal studies have shown that some compounds can kill cancer cells but has not been studied for cancer prevention or treatment in humans. Sophora may act like estrogen in the body. Patients with hormone-sensitive cancer should avoid this product. Matrine, an alkaloid present in Sophora, demonstrated anticancer effects against liver, breast, pancreatic, myeloma, and gastric cancer cell lines.
