Fritillaria, is a flowering plant from the Liliaceae family and the plants are known for their interesting chemical composition. They contain flavonol glycosides, and tri- and diferulic acid sucrose esters, steroidal alkaloids, saponins and terpenoids that have formed the active ingredients in traditional medicine.

In traditional Chinese medical science, the herb works good to expel pathogenic heat and moisture the lung, eliminate phlegm and stop cough. The medical effects are attributed to its active alkaloid, mainly Sipeimine-3-D-glucoside, peimine and peiminine.
