GUACATONGA is a highly adaptive, flowering shrub or tree (conditions permitting) that grows plentifully throughout the varying Amazon Rain Forests ecosystems and Andean Highland and Lowland plains. It produces a variety of colored flowers and fruit that split into seed pods, and its bark and leaves have a lengthy history of use in South American herbal medical systems.

AS a primary gastroprotective ,GUACATONGA has been widely used throughout the South American Indigenous and urban communities to help address diarrhea, in part, by helping reduce stomach acid, to help heal wounds or perforations in the body and, to help support healthy mucous membranes throughout the gastrointestinal tract. Further, it is also used to help restrict gastric acid damage to the stomach lining and elimination organs as well as to help expedite tissue healing once damage has occurred.

As a natural antacid and anti-ulcerous, a similar mechanism of action of the GUACATONGA plant helps explain its use for ulcers, particularly gastric ulcers and H. pylori ulcers, as well as ulcerative skin conditions. GUACATONGA may help reduce gastric acid secretions by over 40 percent, without a change in pH, maintaining harmony in the gut, while making conditions difficult for acid to damage the stomach lining and surrounding mucosal tissues which are precursors to ulcers and episodic or chronic diarrhea.

At the same time, GUACATONGA's strong anti-viral, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-microbial, anti-septic, anti-inflammatory and vulnerary actions may function as "cellular guards" against foreign compounds, protecting the gut flora and the microbiome, possibly bypassing ulcerative conditions.

Conversely, as an anti-mutagenic plant (cellular protector which may help protect cells, cell structure, tissues and DNA health), GUACATONGA may help scavenge irregular, foreign cells by a complex "gate keeping" process in which healthy constituents are allowed to enter, while prohibiting damaging foreign invaders. If the immune system is overwhelmed and an auto-immune failure is experienced, the same anti-mutagenic actions work to help "evict" the foreign invader from tissues, cells and organs.

Studied, documented plant actions of GUACATONGA include anesthetic, antacid, anti-ulcerous, anti-diarrheal, gastroprotective (protects the gastric tract), antihemorrhagic (reduces bleeding), antimutagenic (cellular protector), antiseptic, antiviral, astringent, blood cleanser, detoxifier, digestive stimulant, wound healer, anti-sarcomic, depurative (detoxifier), antivenin, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, anti-septic, anti-cancerous, anti-tumorous, anti-fungal, blood purifier, analgesic (pain reliever internal and external), and febrifuge.

GUACATONGA contains novel clerodane diterpenes, casearin (A thru S). chemicals and caryophyllene acid (natural antihistamine), caprionic acid, casearia clerodane I thru VI, casearvestrin A thru C, hesperitin, lapachol, and vicenin. some of which have been studied for their potential bioavailable actions against sarcoma cell lines related to its anti-cancerous, anti-tumorous and cytotoxic plant constituents. Grant research has determined that GUACATONGA is most promising against lung, colon and ovarian tumor cells. GUACATONGA is NOT a cure for cancer.

As a primary antivenin, is is used traditionally to help neutralize bee, snake and other insect bites, which uses have also been documented by science. GUACATONGA contains plant actions that counteract the neurotoxic, necrotic, cytotoxic and hemotoxic effects caused by venom in bites and other insect wounds.

Similar mechanisms of action make GUACATONGA useful in helping to address burns, wounds, rashes and skin disorders such as eczema and psoriasis, which are accompanied by necrotic, scaly skin that is prone to infection. Because GUACATONGA has a strong natural, plant chemical base against virus, bacteria, fungi, sepsis, and ulcerations of the skin, it may be useful in a variety of skin conditions, including hot spots and other idiopathic skin wounds.
