Science of Kambo
Kambo is a natural substance containing peptides that the human body recognizes. Peptides perform a wide range of functions in the body. Italian scientist Vittorio Erspamer of the University of Rome wrote that this secretion contains a ‘fantastic chemical cocktail with potential medical applications, unequaled by any other amphibian’ (1). ‘Among the several dozen peptides found in kambô, up to 7% are bio-active.’ They bind with receptor sites situated in the brain, triggering chemical reactions in the human body. So far, researchers have found nine bio- active peptides that have a potent effect on the gastrointestinal muscles, gastric and pancreatic secretions, blood circulation, and on the stimulation of the adrenal cortex and pituitary gland.
When Kambo enters the body, the cells open and allow it to enter the cell, cleansing any foreign substances from the cell, without leaving any stress to the cell.
Research on the functions of peptides have found them to have antioxidative, antimicrobial, antihypertensive, and immunomodulatory benefits. Due to the medicinal properties of the peptides, there are over 70 Kambo related patents lodged.
The bioactive peptides and neuropeptides present in Kambo cover a wide range of potential medical uses including:
- blood circulation problems
- vascular insufficiency
- organ diseases
- skin and eyes issues
- fertility problems
- Destroy viruses and bacteria
- Heal infections
- Treat addictions
- Chronic pain
- brain diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s
Due to the presence of these nine peptides, kambô is one of the strongest natural antibiotics and anesthetics found in the world and one of the strongest, natural ways to empower our immune system.
