Origin: South Africa


Cultures who historically prized Uzara: Zulu people of South Africa, Xhosa people of Africa, Mpondo people, Tswana.


Phytochemical constituents: uzarin, xysmalorin; ( both glycosides ), two H-17beta isomers known as: allouzarin and alloxysmalorin.


Interesting Note: Uzara was introduced to the pharmaceutical market in 1911 as a new intestinal sedative (antidiarrhoicum).


Psychoactive Effects: "These cardiac glycosides may have psychoactive properties" - Department of Anthropology & Development Studies, Rand Afrikaans University , South Africa ( link in references )


Aside from personal experiences with Uzara, the science behind the phytochemicals is only well understood by the researchers fortunate enough to conduct the studies. The information is available to the public via .gov websites, however; it's nearly impossible to understand unless you are familiar with the terminology. Also, they are likely keeping certain things under-wraps.

If you check out some of the references on this page you will notice several government websites called pubmed and pubchem. They know so much about these phytochemicals that it would blow your mind. For some reason, most of these chemicals never seem to make it to any sort of clinical evaluations. Even after researchers have studied plenty of them from various botanical species, classified them, and successfully used plenty of them pharmacologically in non human studies. You'll also see a pattern of pattens on naturally occurring chemicals...


My conclusions are based on what I know about this plant. It has a vast history of use as a sacred medicine and even believed metaphysical properties. Seeing as how researchers around the world have conducted phytochemical studies, and that there have been successful historic medicinal applications of this plant, AND the fact that these phytochemicals are even being sold on the Internet, i'm confident that this stuff is legitimate medicine. See, for people who don't believe in herbal medicine, they simply do not know the facts. If you don't believe me, google "buy uzarin" ( a phytochemical that the Uzara plant produces using phytosynthesis. )

Health freedom is important. I believe the medical system needs to embrace both worlds. I believe there are rare occasions in which modern medicine is necessary and that most health problems can easily be avoided with a healthy life-style. "Let food by thy medicine and medicine by thy food" - Hippocrates - the father of western medicine.


Note: educational institutions claim that Wikipeida is not a reliable source however; This is untrue. It's actually the entire worlds research paper database. You can look at the sources there and see that they are mostly academic journals written by highly trained and educated scholarly professionals. Other sources include .edu domains which are for educational institutions only. I always check the sources to make sure they are in fact scholarly. I do include my own opinions and views in the writing.
