Mulungu Bark Powder
The Mulungu bark powder comes from the Erythrina mulungu tree which is indigenous to Brazil, parts of Peru, and tropical areas in Latin America. Mulungu bark powder has been best known as a herbal remedy that can help lower stress levels. Although, mulungu bark powder is not readily available in the states, it has long been used in South America as not only a natural sedative, but also to calm an over excited nervous system and help with sleep issues.
The traditional use of mulungu for anxiety and stress, which has been well documented by researchers, shows that it effectively alters anxiety-related responses. The researchers reported that mulungu extract has an effect similar to the commonly prescribed anti-anxiety drug diazepam, without the drowsy side effects. It is a natural mental stimulant and body relaxer. The chemistry of Mulungu has been studied extensively; the bark contains novel alkaloids, flavonoids, and triterpenes. Those who do not respond well to Kava or other herbal sedatives may find this the perfect alternative for an enjoyable mellow stress relief. 2-3 teaspoons of mulungu bark powder can be decocted 5–10 minutes for tea.
In addition, one of the main effects of mulungu is a strong physical sensation of well-being, or mood elevation. It is experienced as a very pleasurable warmth and tingling in the body. It is this pleasurable sensation that works so well as an appetite suppressant. You just feel so good that you don’t want to eat. Some preliminary research also shows it may even help to lessen pain.
Normally, when taken by itself, mulungu bark can cause drowsiness. But when taken with a stimulant such as green tea, the pleasurable sensations are amplified, and they are accompanied by increased mental clarity.
It also used around the world to help naturally treat…
- intermittent fevers
- heart palpitations
- liver disorders
