Dragon’s blood contains a broad range of naturally occurring compounds, many of which have been well studied. The sap is rich in protective antioxidant phenols and anti-inflammatory compounds of various kinds. Due to these compounds, dragon’s blood sap helps to protect the cells of the skin and reduces redness and swelling. It also contains a group of compounds called proanthocyanidins, which actually repair collagen, the lattice-like main protein that makes up much of our tissues. Additionally, dragon’s blood contains taspine, a known tissue-assisting agent. The sap also demonstrates antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal activity. This is why dragon’s blood is so widely used on infectious skin conditions of all kinds with great success.
