Free Gift For Order Over $50. Check out our gift selection.

Pedra hume caŠ is a medium-sized shrub that grows in drier regions of the Amazon and other parts of Brazil. It has small, green leaves and large, orange-red flowers. A member of the myrtle family, it is one of more than 150 species of Myrcia indigenous to tropical South America and the West Indies. In Brazil, the common name pedra hume caŠ refers to three species of Myrcia plants which are used interchangeablyóMyrcia salicifolia, M. uniflorus, and M. sphaerocarpa.
  • Family: Myrtaceae 
  • Genus: Myrcia 
  • Species: salicifolia, uniflora, multiflora, sphaerocarpa 
  • Synonyms: Aubmyrcia Salicifolia, Myrcia multiflora 
  • Common Names: Pedra hume caa, pedra-ume-caa, insulina vegetal 
  • Part Used: Leaves
TRIBAL AND HERBAL MEDICINE USES 
 
Pedra hume caŠ has been used by indigenous tribes in the rainforest for diabetes, diarrhea, and dysentery. The Taiwanos tribe (in northwest Amazonia) considers the leaves to be astringent and use it for persistent diarrhea. It has had a place in Brazilian traditional medicine for many years. Dr. G. L. Cruz, a leading Brazilian practitioner and herbalist, nicknamed it ďvegetable insulinĒ in 1965. Dr. Cruz noted in his book Livro Verde das Plantas Medicinais e Industriais do Brasil that ďone uses all parts of the plant in infusions, decoctions or extracts to combat diabetes. Specialists that have made careful study of medicinal plants affirm that the regular use of this plant produces surprising results in the treatment of this ailment, as in a short space of time the sugar disappears from the urine. Hence the name Ďvegetable insulin.íĒ Even 30 years later, Dr. Cruz and other Brazilian researchers and practitioners are recording the actions and uses of pedra hume caŠ for diabetes in much the same manner. It remains a very popular natural remedy for diabetes throughout South America; the traditional use is a simple leaf tea with a pleasant, slightly sweet taste. It is also used for diarrhea, hypertension, enteritis, hemorrhages, and mouth ulcers.  
 
CURRENT PRACTICAL USES 
 
Pedra hume caŠ continues to be one of the more popular natural remedies for diabetes throughout South America, where it is widely known. The studies with animals and humans have confirmed its safety and no toxic effects or side effects were noted. It is hoped that, with the growing diabetes epidemic in North America, health practitioners here will look for natural alternatives and incorporate this wonderful rainforest remedy into their natural health practices. These tropical shrubs grow very quickly and growth is encouraged by pruning. A single shrub can be harvested of its leaves by hard pruning 4 times a year or more - producing approximately 50-60 kg of leaves annually. It is truly a wonderful and sustainable resource the rainforest offers!

SUGGESTED USAGE
One cup of leaf infusion 2-3 times daily with meals. One to 2 g of leaf powder in tablets or capsules with meals can be substituted if desired.
