Strophanthin mother tincture Strophanthus Kombe 100ml
Strophanthin is the generic term for various heart-active glycosides, similar to digitalis, but with a much broader spectrum of activity than this. Best known is the so-called g-strophanthin, which is obtained from the seeds of the African plant Strophanthus gratus. Less well known, but with a comparable effect, is the so-called k-strophanthin, which is obtained from the seeds of the species Strophanthus kombé, which also comes from Africa. The complex of cardioactive glycosides in the seeds of Strophanthus kombé is composed somewhat differently than in those of Strophanthus gratus. Although the chemical structure of k-strophanthin and g-strophanthin is very similar, they are not completely identical. In addition, the effect on the autonomic nervous system seems to be less uniform than with Strophanthus gratus.
While Strophanthus gratus is best absorbed directly through the oral mucosa, the absorption of Strophanthus kombé is better through the intestinal mucosa, so it should not be kept in the mouth pure for longer, but should be drunk quickly with water. In addition, Strophanthus combé has a longer half-life, which is why it should only be taken twice a day, in the morning and in the evening, instead of three times. Since Strophanthus combé is more cardioactive than Strophanthus gratus, only about a third of the dose is usually required, although it usually seems advantageous to take a lower dose in the evening than in the morning.
Taking Strophanthus combé tincture: Put the drops in a glass of water and swallow directly, do not keep in your mouth! The drops smell slightly nutty and taste very bitter, so swallow directly without keeping it in your mouth for long.
Start with a maximum of 3 drops in the morning and 2 drops in the early evening, then gradually increase. It should be assessed according to the subjective effect, i.e. according to performance, pulse, blood pressure, respiration, heartbeat
