(tinctura MARANTA ARUNDINACEA)
from AMAZON HERBS®
Arrowroot is indigenous to tropical South - and Central America. Amazonia Indian tribes used it, among others, as antidote for poison-tipped arrows.
The starchy powder of the dried fibrous rhizomes (underground stem system) is used for medicinal and culinary purposes.
This plant has an antioxidant activity and hypolipidemic effect; it reduces the level of lipids and lipoproteins in the blood.
It is a natural immune system booster and has powerful anti-inflammatory properties. Works naturally against intestinal disorders (acute diarrhea), and treats Urinary Tract Infections (UTIís).
It also improves the circulation and blood pressure; also lowers cholesterol.
Bio-active compounds (alkaloids, carbohydrate, cardiac glycosides, aminoacids, phenolic compounds, terpenoids, saponins, flavones, gum).
Also present are water, albumen, sugar, gum, ash, vitamins and minerals (potassium, iron, vitamin B-6, thiamin niacin, magnesium, riboflacin and vitamin C).
High amounts of potassium in arrowroot help soften the blood vessels and arteries; this helps to prevent high blood pressure, heart attacks and strokes. It also seems to stimulate brain health.
Arrowroot lowers cholesterol; stimulates bile production (increases cholesterol uptake by the gallbladder for bile synthesis).
Arrowroot seems to be an effective treatment for poisoned wounds such as snake- and spider bites.
The rhizome extracts have immunostimulatory effects (boost the immune system).
Hyperacidity and gastric ulcers are common these days; Maranta arundinacea (Arrowroot) is used in folklore practise for the treatment of these complains.
