The Spilanthes plant genus, or Acmella, comprises over thirty species with prevalent usage in Africa and India. This plant genus is known by some consumers for its potential role as an aphrodisiac and anti-aging tool - but there's far more to this exciting flower.
Historically, Spilanthes have been used in various conditions by healers worldwide, including for everyday issues to serious ones, from toothache, stomatitis, malaria, dysentery, and oral hygiene maintenance.
The plant owes its therapeutic potential to its bioactive components, primarily spilanthol (affinin) and alkylamides. Other bioactive compounds include N-isobutylamides, phenolic compounds, coumarins, and triterpenoids.
Cannabis isn't the only plant species with bold terpenes and polyphenols. We should learn about many others, such as Spilanthes, as they have various uses.
What are some of the benefits of Spilanthes? As the research unravels on plants, this one has an aged history with so many potentials in medicine - including but not limited to:
Anti-Aging Properties: Spilanthol in Spilanthes acmella is responsible for anti-aging effects, while trans-ferulic acid exhibits antioxidant activity. Combined with Gotu Kola (Centella Asiatica) and Ginger (Zingiber officinale), Spilanthes is known to promote skin health and anti-aging.
Antimicrobial Properties: Spilanthes displays antibacterial, antifungal, antiparasitic, and insecticidal effects against numerous organisms, even reducing HIV/AIDS replication.
Augmenting Urine Output and Water Intake: Spilanthes may act as a diuretic, increasing urine/salt excretion and water intake.
Oral Health: Spilanthes support oral health, protecting the oral microbiome from dysbiosis and reducing oral candida (thrush).
Neuroprotective Effects: Spilanthes exhibit neuroprotective abilities against pesticide-induced neuronal death and oxidative stress.
Gastric Ulcer Prevention: Spilanthes may protect against alcohol-induced ulcers, reducing oxidative stress and inflammation.
Pain Management Potential: Extracts from Spilanthes and heliopsis have the potential to create potent anesthetics for pain relief.
Inflammation Suppression: Spilanthol exhibits anti-inflammatory solid effects, inhibiting inflammatory responses induced by macrophage activation.
Vascular System Health potentials: Spilanthes protect the vascular system by increasing antioxidant levels in the heart and acting as a vasorelaxant.
Enhanced Lung Function possibilities: Spilanthes combats fungi contributing to tuberculosis, reduces lung inflammation, and increases antioxidant levels in the lungs.
Antioxidant Properties: Bioactive compounds in Spilanthes serve as potent free radical scavengers, protecting against carcinogen-induced DNA damage.
Wound Healing: Spilanthol and α-Humulene can expedite wound healing by increasing collagen deposition.
Libido and Sexual Behavior Enhancement: Spilanthes have been used as an aphrodisiac and can positively influence the estrous cycle in females and improve sexual performance in males.
Metabolic Disease Improvement: Spilanthes may aid in addressing parasite-induced metabolic disease by restoring abnormal lipid levels.
Diabetes Management: Spilanthes have potential antidiabetic effects, helping normalize blood sugar levels.
Cancer Management: Spilanthes may exhibit anti-cancer effects on various types of cancer, including breast, cervical, colon, and skin cancer.
N‑Alkylamides can work on the endocannabinoid system, bind to CB1 receptors, inhibit Fatty Acid Amide Hydrolase (FAAH), and impede anandamide cellular uptake - or in other words they hook up with our CB1 receptor and stop the stuff in our guts that kills off both Anandamide - the endocannabinoid - and THC - our beloved exogenous cannabinoid.
I discovered this due to the necessity to research my health and with the ample help of a world-renowned expert team. Another excellent reason to share this with all of you is gaining an appointment will be complex for the vast majority.
About a month ago, I went to the garage to grab something from the freezer and found it unplugged. Upon opening it, I discovered mold and started cleaning it. It got to me, even though I had long chemical gloves and used some bleach to offset the stuff. Before I could get it all out, I was already feeling sick.
Now, amid my severe health crisis, this wasn't a smart move - it never is. Black Mold is toxic and kills many people yearly; it's mostly silent and discovered after the person has fallen very ill. Many things can get our bodies - and minds - toxins will affect the brain, and, in some cases, it can be irreversible.
Through connections from working at the American Academy of Cannabinoid Medicine, namely its founder, legendary Dr. David Bearman, I ran across the name Stacey Shymansky. She's known as The Medicine Woman and works with a team spanning the entire global map.
It felt like an honor to have her show interest and get some CBGa - it's exciting to see more learn about CBGa - not the brand but the cannabinoid in ECS Balance Control. So many are finding it unlocks doors.
But for me? I needed a door unlocked in my body, mind, immune system, and lungs - a very toxic and scary mold. When I spoke with The Medicine Woman, she gave me a few things I should get to help me get the stuff out of my system.
Now, remember this was a one-time talk between two professionals working in various arenas of plant medicine and not a consultation - she requires extensive background information and releases. She does in-person visits all over the map with a team.
Impressive, no doubt.
Back to Spilanthes. I've had it for three days and have been using it; it's beyond spicy and terpy - I can see that people desiring its benefits go after it. I could immediately feel that this plant creates one potent antiseptic, and if you keep your mouth healthy, the body's balance can follow. Everything I ingest is functional; my food is my medicine, and the supplements have specific and broad purposes.
The point of using Spilanthes was Liver pain and mycotoxin toxicity, although low levels in my blood; if spores remain in my lungs, the cycle continues. She also suggested something for my lungs; we'll get into that in another Blog as it came today. Surprisingly, my breathing is the most noticeable difference, and I feel it upon taking it as well - telltale in my book.
In only three days of using this supplement at high doses, 4 droppers 3 times a day, I exhibited a lot of energy in the past 24-48 hours. It's been chaotic; a dog is in the veterinary hospital, and many know the stress of that cost and what it's like to pile it up on a credit card. Your kid is crying; the dog has been your best friend, too; what do you do?
I spent until nearly midnight up last night out and about - and was up early, ready to go today. I realized later in the afternoon when I took the 2nd dose of the day, that I was not feeling 'dizzy' as I had thought I was and even told others about today - I was feeling normal blood oxygen.
When we look at products on the market, deciding what to use or how takes time. The average person isn't going to run across the Medicine Woman or be able to afford her - and she most certainly can't fit you all in, so I'm sharing this information and giving her the credit she deserves for sharing it with me as I can breathe today with 100% on the pulse oximeter for the first time in weeks.
Ancient Chinese or Herbal Medicines like this should be used with care and oversight by someone who knows what they're doing. While I thought it was interesting to cleanse with this extract, in my research, I saw that its overuse could also cause issues.
This is why CBGa has become so important to people suffering from issues related to poor Endocannabinoid System Balance, or ECS Balance Control.
CBGa, it's the one Cannabinoid I believe everyone needs...
