What is Desmodium?
Botanical Name: Desmodium adscendens
Desmodium adscendens is a rainforest plant native to Peru, Jamaica, Central America and West Africa. It is called “Strong Back Herb” in Jamaica for its ability to relieve back pain and neck pain. In Peru, it is known as Amor Seco or Pega Pega.
Traditionally, Desmodium adscendens is used to treat
- Promotes a healthy liver*
- For healthy respiratory function (lungs)*
- Open bronchial tubes that are in spasm*
- To cough up phlegm*
- Stop allergic reactions*
- Helps clear sinuses*
- For relief of minor and occasional pain in muscles, tendons, and joints*
Through Scientific Research, Desmodium adscendens has been shown to:
- Help reduce liver enzyme levels in the blood*
- Have a positive effect on the functioning of the lungs*
- Promote healthy breathing: fast-acting bronchial dilator*
- Stop coughing and sneezing due to allergic reaction*
- Stop itching and running eyes due to allergic reaction*
- Support the free flow of air through the lungs by helping to prevent the constriction of the bronchials and promoting the relaxation of the bronchial tubes that are in spasm. The relaxation effect is very rapid, within a few minutes.*
- Have anti-anaphylactic shock properties*
- Promotes a healthy inflammation response and speeds healing of injuries to knees, shoulders and other joints and tendons of the body.*
- Take muscles out of spasm, including the smooth muscles of the lungs (useful in asthma attacks) and the smooth muscles of the uterus, which is helpful for menstrual cramps.*
What Makes Royal DesmodiumTM Royal?
Whole World Botanicals is the only company that offers Desmodium adscendens in the United States. The company owns 40 acres of rainforest land where our Desmodium adscendens grows.
Royal DesmodiumTM is a very potent 1:1 extract, meaning the extract is made from equal amounts of plant material (Desmodium adscendens leaves) and the extracting agent (in this case, water). No other company in the United States offers such strong plant extracts.
There is wrong information on the Internet that claims Desmodium adscendens is also known as “Manayupa.” Manayupa is the common name for Desmodium molliculum, which grows in the Andes and is often confused with its stronger, more effective rainforest “cousin” Desmodium adscendens. Desmodium molliculum does not take muscles out of spasm in the dramatic way that Desmodium adscendens does.
This botanical makes a very pleasant tasting tea. It can be taken on a regular basis for its health enhancing properties. Add a squeeze of lemon, if you like.
Since Whole World Botanicals began offering this botanical to our customers, Royal DesmodiumTM has become famous in certain circles of martial artists and body builders who seem to recover from intense workouts and injuries!
