What is Mambe?

Mambe is a raw leaf used by the Indigenous, the Natives, and shamans of South America as a super food and medicine for vitality, energy, longevity, metabolism, digestion, altitude sickness, blood pressure regulation, pains and aches and more. This plant appears to be a useful treatment for various gastrointestinal ailments, motion sickness, and laryngeal fatigue. It can help in weight reduction programs and physical fitness, and may be a fast-acting antidepressant.

The leaves of Mambe are dried and ground into a fine powder. The leaves alone are inactive and need to be activated in order to absorb the benefits. The ground leaves are then mixed with the ash of specific leaves which activate the properties of the mambe. There are many ways to use Mambe leaves, as a tea, simply chewing the raw leaves, or placing the ground leaves in the pockets of your cheeks and allowing it to slowly dissolve in your mouth. The Shamans and Natives most common way of use is the powder form.

In the spiritual sense Mambe is a throat medicine, it heals the throat chakra and clears the crown chakra, allowing for clear, effective and positive communication. It is said to bring clarity focus, concentration and positive thoughts. Some shamans call it the medicine of truth. It is a superfood that raises the vibrational frequency, by clearing our mental space, promoting positive and uplifting thoughts and healthy communication.
