Cryptolepis Drops

Description

Common Name: Cryptolepis
Botanical Name: Cryptolepis sanguinolenta
Part Used: Root
Ratio: 1:2

Cryptolepis extract may have antibacterial activity against broad spectrum bacteria such as Borrelia burgdorferi, which causes Lyme disease. In fact, it may be used as a herbal support for the treatment of tick-borne infections such as Lyme Borrelia burgdorferi and Bartonella henselae.

The presence of bioactive compounds such as cryptolepine, the main alkaloid in the herb, has proved effective against both Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria. Another study reveals that the bioactive compounds may alter DNA in Borrelia burgdorferi.

Since traditional antibiotic approaches do not resolve all symptoms in some Lyme disease patients, there’s a need to develop novel treatment strategies, including identifying antimicrobial agents that are effective against persister microcolonies of Borrelia burgdorferi.

A 2020 study in Frontiers in Medicineinvolved the testing of a panel of botanical and natural products commonly used by Lyme disease patients. The scientists found Cryptolepis sanguinolenta to be highly active in vitro against both growing Borrelia burgdorferi and non-growing stationary phase Borrelia burgdorferi.

Anti-Inflammatory and Analgesic Activity
Cryptolepis has been used traditionally to treat several inflammatory diseases. Some of the more common inflammatory diseases include osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Cryptolepine produces nitric oxide that may act against inflammatory agents.

Strong Antimalarial Activity
For years, malaria has remained a global pandemic with an estimated 3.3 billion people at risk globally. While several antimalarial drugs have helped in achieving the 90% malarial eradication rate, hundreds of thousands of deaths are still being reported around the world.
Cryptolepis sanguinolenta has proved to contain anti-parasitic activities against Plasmodium falciparum, a parasite that causes malaria. Cryptolepine exhibits high gametocytocidal properties that contribute to the herb’s potent antimalarial activity. The alkaloids interfere with the parasite’s lifecycle at both the asexual and sexual stages.

Precautions
Not for use during pregnancy or lactation.

If you have a medical condition or take pharmaceutical drugs, please consult your doctor prior to use.

Adult Dose: 4ml once to three times a day.
