Peptides Found in Kambo and What Do They Do?
The wonderful and sacred Kambo secretion contains 9 known peptides that occur and are active in the human body.
These peptides enter the bloodstream via ‘gateways’ or ‘points’ gently burnt on to the skin. This way the medicine gets to work immediately and the effects are felt within minutes of the secretion being placed on the points.
A Cellular Cleanse
Known for its intense and immediate purgatory effects the Kambo medicine gets to work fast on clearing the body and cells of toxins. Bile from the liver and gallbladder is expelled and the body flushed and detoxed.
Relieve Stress & Anxiety
The peptide Dermorphin decreases the levels of the ‘stress hormone’ cortisol, which can help to decrease anxiety and improve mood.
Studies has shown that the peptide Deltorphin has pain-relieving effects and can help with chronic inflammation.
Incredibly in cellular studies the peptide Dermaseptin B2 has been found to block and stop the growth of many human cancers! ⠀
Helps Treat Addiction
Tachykinin is a small protein that affect reward, motivation and stress responses in the brain but gets disrupted in addiction. Phyllomedusin is a type of Tachykinin and by boosting Tachykinin activity it is said to have the potential in treating addiction.
Protects The Heart
Deltorphin II increases blood flow to the heart and is currently being studied as a treatment to heart attacks.
Antimicrobial & Antiviral
Many of the peptides in Kambo can fight microbes, negative bacteria and virus’ in the body, such as E.Coli and yeast, herpes, biofilm infections, staphylococcus (MRSA) and more.
Kambo has long been known as an immunity booster and strengthener. Detoxing the body from a cellular level allows the immunity system to respond and act more efficiently when faced with threat of infection or disease.
