Manayupa or Desmodium is very popular in traditional plant medicine in Central and South America. Current Peruvian phytotherapy uses a tea leaf to purify the blood, detoxify the body from toxins and chemicals in the current living environment, cleanse the kidneys and urinary tract, and treat ovarian problems such as inflammation and irritation, vaginal discharge and bleeding.
There are 34 varieties of Desmodium. Only Desmodium molliculum (Manayupa) and Desmodium adscendens have been proven effective through extensive research and testing.
Advantages of Desmodium
Cleanse the anti-inflammatory blood purifier
Detoxifies the intestinal cleanser
The active ingredients of Desmodium make this plant an exceptional ally of the liver, thanks to its hepatoprotective properties. Its effectiveness in cases of bronchial asthma is such that it has attracted the attention of the scientific community which conducted numerous studies to try to understand its anti-asthmatic properties.
It is also recognized as an anti-allergic effect (digestive or contact), bronchodilator and relaxing. Its immunomodulatory activity has also been validated by several studies. The detoxifying effect of Desmodium makes it indispensable during a detox cure.
Desmodium - the body’s purification plant
Desmodium regenerates the liver cells. This major organ is involved in various vital functions: digestion, hormonal regulation, fat metabolism. It is also the body’s purification plant: it degrades and removes toxic substances (natural waste, medicines, alcohol, heavy metals)
It has also been used for a very long time as a symptomatic treatment for asthma. By acting on the contraction of the respiratory muscles, it also has anti-allergic effects because allergens can cause these respiratory tract disorders.
Desmodium can also be associated with other treatments after viral hepatitis, toxic hepatitis (intoxication, chemotherapy, etc.), liver failure and dysfunctions (alcohol-related, for example).
