This large, four ounce bottle of tincture contains: Cryptoleptis, sida cordifolia and pippali.
Cryptolepis sanguinolenta and Cryptolepis buchanani are plants that have been used by traditional healers in Central and West Africa and in India to treat infectious diseases, amoebiasis, and fever, including malaria . Three bioactive alkaloids have been isolated from the root bark, exhibiting higher in vitro antiplasmodial activity than chloroquine.
Pippali has the ability to enhance proper assimilation and potency of other herbs, making it a very common ingredient in Ayurvedic formulations. It's unique combination of the pungent taste and sweet post-digestive effect. This mix is important because most herbs and foods with hot energy (for instance, black pepper, dried ginger, and cayenne) are too dry and warming for those with pitta constitutions or imbalances.
Sida cordifolia counters bacterial infections through a dual mechanism, and immunomodulatory polysaccharides from this plant should be isolated and characterised to realise their potential as anti-infective agents. Such properties could be developed as an antibiotic alternative (1) in the clinic and (2) alternative growth promoter for the agri-food industry. https://bmccomplementmedtherapies.biomedcentral.com/articles/10.1186/s12906-022-03502-7
