The Science Behind The Frog

Updated: Dec 27, 2020

Kambo has amazing health benefits!

Phyllomedusa bicolor (the giant monkey frog) also known as Sapo or Kambo is an indigenous frog of South America primarily found in the Amazonian rainforests of Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Peru, French Guiana, Suriname and Venezuela near rivers and streams in the region. This amazing creature has been providing healing to indigenous peoples of the Amazon for decades due to a secretion that it produces containing miraculous medicinal properties. More recently, practitioners of this curative medicine have begun to introduce Kambo to Western culture across the globe.

the poly-peptides

The secretion of the Phyllomedusa bicolor contain a highly concentrated number of bioactive polypeptides which are known to induce profound health benefits for its recipients. Polypeptides of significance are Phyllomedusin, Phyllokinin and Phyllomedusins, Caeruleins and Sauvagines, Demorphin and Deltorphins, Adenoregulins, the anti-microbial peptides-Dermaseptins, Andenoregulins, Plasticins, and Philoseptins, Brandykins, Bombesins, and Tryptophilins. When applied through the lymphatic system, Kambo has the ability to act as one of nature’s most effective naturopathic antibiotics and immune system booster. What makes this medicine so unique is its ability to traverse the blood-brain barrier and stimulate the endocrine glands of the brain, as well as physically ameliorate pathogenic organisms, resulting in an immune effect and deep cleansing of the body, over time bringing the body and its intricate systems back into balance or homeostasis, resetting its cellular memory.

Here is a brief description of each polypeptide noted above and their known effects on the human body’s various systems;

(Anti-microbial peptides)Adenoregulins, Dermaseptins, Plasticins, and Philloseptins -part of a family of a broad spectrum of ant-microbial peptides involved in the defense of the frogs bare skin against microbial invasion. Peptides Dermaseptin B2 and B3 are effective in killing certain types of cancer cells.

Adenoregulins-works on the human body through the adenosine receptors, which is a fundamental component throughout all human cellular fuel. These receptors may offer a target for the treatment of depression, stroke and cognitive loss diseases such as Altzheimers’s and Parkinson’s disease.

Bombesins-increase pancreatic secretion, intestinal myoelectric activity and smooth muscle contractibility.

Bradykinins-produce vasodilation, contraction of the non-vascular smooth muscle increase vascular permeability and are related to the mechanism of inflammatory pain.

Caeruleins-stimulate gastric , bile and pancreatic secretins as well as certain smooth muscles.

Ceruleins and Sauvagines- are peptides with myotropic properties on the muscles, producing a contraction of the colon and the urinary bladder. They produce a drop in blood pressure accompanied by tachycardia. They stimulate the adrenal cortex, the pituitary gland, contributing to greater sensory perception and increased resistance. Both peptides possess an analgesic power, contributing to the increase of physical strength, the capacity to confront physical pain, stree, disease and diminish the symptoms of fatigue.

Dermorphins and Deltorphins- are small peptides that are selective agonists of the delta receptors which are 4,00times more potent thanmorphine and 40 times more potent than the endogenous endorphins.

Phyllomedusin- produce contractions at the muscle level and increase the secretion of the gastrointestinal tract such as the salivary glands, stomach, small intestines, pancreas and gallbladder.

Phyllokinin and Phyllomedusins- Are potent vasodilators, increasing the permeability of the blood-brain barrier both for their own access as well as that for other active peptides. Within this family are the medusins which also have anti-microbial and anti-fungal properties.

Tryptophilins-are neuropeptides that are broadening perspectives on how the human brain works.

the health benefits

Kambo is known to facilitate include the detoxification of the liver and intestines, improvement of cognitive function, enhanced sensory perception, removal of emotional blocks, a powerful energy boost, and significant anti-inflammatory properties which affect joint pain and pain relief. In addition, the multitude of peptides in its biological genome are reported to affect a wide range of potential treatments of degenerative diseases such as Altzheimers’s and Parkinson’s, organ disease, cancer, fertility issues in women, AIDS, Herpes, Candida, poor blood circulation and vascular insufficiency as well as depression and anxiety.

It is important to note that the information cited in this article is based on my research of scientific studies conducted on the poly-peptides present in Kambo, research of the Phyllomedusin Bicolor secretion and real-life testimonials by people who have been treated by the medicine both short-term and long-term.
