Strophanthin - Strophanthus kombe seeds
Strophanthin is the generic term for various heart-active glycosides, similar to digitalis, but with a much broader spectrum of activity than this. The best known is the so-called g-strophanthin, which is obtained from the seeds of the African plant Strophanthus gratus. Less well known, but comparable in effect, is the so-called k-strophanthin, which is obtained from the seeds of the species Strophanthus kombe, which also comes from Africa. In the seeds of Strophanthus kombe, the complex of heart-active glycosides is composed somewhat differently than in those of Strophanthus gratus. The chemical structure of k-strophanthin and g-strophanthin is very similar, but not completely identical. In addition, the effect on the autonomic nervous system appears to be less uniform than with Strophanthus gratus.
The cornerstone of every Strophanthin kombe mother tincture is the Strophanthus kombe seed. In order to meet our customers' wishes and also be able to offer an alcohol-free version of the Strophanthin kombe mother tincture, we have decided to bring the Strophanthus kombe seeds onto the market ourselves. This is a purely natural product that we source directly from Africa. The seeds can therefore vary in size and color, are cleaned and free of any pesticides. You can also try growing a plant from the seed as the seeds are capable of germinating.
How do I take the Strophanthus kombe seeds and how much do I need to cover my strophanthin needs?
We can give the following advice: It is important that you work up to your strophanthin dose, i.e. slowly. “Sneaking in” means that you slowly increase the dose, i.e. the number of seeds, that you consume. If the increase is too rapid, diarrhea can occur. Start with 5-10 seeds in the morning and evening before meals. An exact dose cannot be given because every person reacts differently. Increase the dose slowly until you have reached your personal comfort dosage.
Since Strophanthus kombe has a stronger effect on the heart than Strophanthus gratus, only about a third of the dose is usually required, although it usually seems advantageous to take a smaller dose in the evening than in the morning.
Put the seeds in your mouth and bite them. Be careful, the seeds taste very bitter! Keep the seed pulp in your mouth for about 3-5 minutes, chew on it a little and then swallow it. The active ingredient is absorbed in the gastrointestinal tract.
Since the seeds are very bitter and the absorption of Strophanthus kombe through the intestinal mucosa is better, you can make an infusion with honey. To do this, grind the seeds with a coffee grinder and add a sip of hot tea water. Let it steep for 2-3 minutes and then stir in a small spoonful of honey. You can then take this infusion in small sips.
