A Little Known Herbal Secret For Sleep And Stress That You've Never Heard Of!
Mulungu, pronounced ("Moo-lung-goo"), is a rainforest botanical that grows abundantly in the Amazonian forests, marshes and riverbanks. The flowers resemble orange coral thus the tree is sometimes called “Coral Flower”. In Peru, Brazil and other Latin American tropical regions the indigenous peoples have a vast array of uses for this seemingly magical tree no one is really talking about!
Traditionally Mulungu is taken as a special preparation using macerated bark in alcohol made from cane sugar, called aguardiente or a strong tea (decoction). All parts of the tree are used for various reasons except the root. The bark, seeds, leaves and flowers are all utilized in a multitude of ways. Mulungu is a well-known herb among the Amazonian indigenous as a potent but gently relaxing herb where it is used to aid in deep restful sleep and to calm an overstimulated nervous system. Herbalists and practitioners across the world use mulungu to help reduce stress from agitation or trauma events, to promote healthy sleeping patterns, to aid in calmness and for deep relaxation.
