Its constituents are lapachol, a quinone and a recognized antitumor agent found in the wood and barely in the bark. According to H. Wagner, head of the Institute of Pharmaceutical Biology at the University of Munich in Germany, much of the basis for pau d’arco’s reputation is its immune-stimulating properties. Quinones are present throughout nature. They are involved in the transference of hydrogen and electrons..

Lapachol, found in the inner bark, activates human immune cells (lymphocytes and granulocytes) in low concentrations. Lymphocytes include cells that mediate immunological reactions, such as T-cells. Granulocytes are white blood cells found in the blood that devour foreign cells and bacteria. Lapachol is barely soluble in water.

Presentation: Crushed, Powder, Extract.

Name Commercial: Clavo Huasca

Common names: Clavo huasca, clove vine, white clove, clavohuasca, cipó cravo, cipó trindade

Scientific Name: Tynnanthus Panurensis

GENERAL DESCRIPTION:

Clavo huasca is a large, woody vine that grows up to 80 m in length and is indigenous to the Amazon rainforest and other parts of tropical South America. It produces very small, white flowers (which are pollinated by bees and butterflies) and elongated, flat, bean-like fruits. The vine bark and root has a distinctive, clove-like aroma (as do the leaves, somewhat).

PROPERTIES AND USES:

It is used like digestive, for fevers, for rheumatism and arthritis and as tonic and muscular sedative (it strengthens, balances and strengthens the corporal functions in general). Together with other barks, it serves to elaborate the Amazonian liquors.

Technical Characteristics

COMPOSITION:

Preliminary phytochemical analysis by Brazilian scientists have discovered an alkaloid they named tinantina as well as tannic acids, eugenol, and other essential oils.

CURRENT PRACTICAL USES

Clavo huasca is still widely employed as a natural aphrodisiac for both men and women in South America today. Its reported to be highly effective, especially for pre-menopausal women (but not as effective for libido loss after menopause). This use has caught on here in the U.S., and more clavo huasca products are now available in natural product stores. It is also showing up as an ingredient in various herbal libido formulas for men and women as well. For its aphrodisiac qualities, its best prepared in its time-honored traditional method: as an alcohol tincture

jergon

BASIC INFORMATION:

Parts Used: Tuber/rhizone

Presentation: crushed, powder, extract.

Name Commercial: Jergon Sacha

Common names: Jergón sacha, fer-de-lance, sacha jergon, hierba del jergon, erva-jararaca, jararaca, jararaca-taia, milho-de-cobra, taja-de-cobra

Scientific Name: Dracontium loretense Krause.

GENERAL DESCRIPTION:

Jergón sacha is a rainforest understory plant that consists of a single, giant, deeply-divided leaf borne from an underground tuber on a long, thick stem which resembles the trunk of a sapling. When fertile, the flower stem emerges from near the base of the plant and rises up to 1–2 m in height.

BIOLOGICAL ACTIVITIES AND CLINICAL RESEARCH:

Despite the large and growing market for jergón sacha, not a single clinical study has been published on its actions. If jergón sachas longstanding use as an effective snakebite remedy was clinically validated, it may explain its more recent use as an antiviral for HIV as well. The most recent class of drugs developed for HIV are called protease inhibitors. Protease inhibitors work by blocking an active component in HIV-its protease enzyme. With the protease enzyme blocked, HIV makes copies of its virus that are defective and cant infect new cells. In current (mainstream) HIV therapy, protease inhibitor drugs are usually combined with other antiviral drugs (which kill the virus directly) after the protease inhibitors have disabled its replication. Proteases are ubiquitously present in every cell of every living organism: they are enzymes that digest proteins.

COMPOSITION:

Initial phytochemical screening indicates that the rhizome contains alkaloids, flavonoids, phenols, saponins, sterols, triterpenes, and starch; yet, none of these have been quantified or identified.

abuta

The species is also traditionally used as an ingredient in curare arrow-poisons.

COMPOSITION:

Menispermaceae species are well-known to contain alkaloids and those are extensively analyzed with regard to curare composition.
Chemical investigation of the ethyl acetate and methanol extracts of the twigs and leaves of A. grandifolia collected in French Guyana, furnished three tropoloisoquinoleines, imerubrine, pareirubrines A and B, one isoquinoleine, stepharine, and eight oleanane-type saponins.
