Cryptolepis “sanguinolenta” Discussion:
Cryptolepis is an invasive climbing shrub that has received lots of attention recently. It’s main and considered to be its strongest compound, cryptolepine is currently being studied for its potent bacterial support and cytotoxicity. There are many species of cryptolepis, although sanguinolenta has been the most thoroughly studied.
This is a wonderful broad-spectrum herb that may cleanse the blood, including parasites, bacteria, resistant malaria, tick-borne and other bug bite illnesses, viruses, and fungus. This herb can be used long-term. It has been historically used for malaria in Africa and has been promising as effective for the resistant types of malaria, even compared to some medications. We are told that medications may contain the compound cryptolepine and while some may have a reaction to any medication made from it, when you take an herb in its natural form, that side effect does not normally take place. It is an excellent herb for Lyme disease support and it is one of Buhner’s top-recommended Lyme-supportive herbs. As a matter of fact, it is one of his top 5 natural antibiotic-supportive recommended herbs.
It may break down biofilms, which is a gel matrix that encases pathogens, rendering anti-infectives from reaching infections. This gel layer acts as a protectant and may be made up of many pathogens combined, which can make most any resistant infection hard to treat. Using herbs like cryptolepis, combined with other herbs like Cats Claw (our CryptoClaw™ blend), and/or Andrographis (our Pathogen Purge™ blend), may create a highly medicinal Lyme tonic that may be gut-protective, without compromising the flora biome, like commonly used antibiotics.
Lyme infections commonly accompany other co-infections of pathogens, either from the bug bite or the from the parasites living in our internal terrain that harbor their own infestations. Cryptolepis has been compared to the Co-vid treatment medication, Hydroxychloroquine. It is similar because they both specialize in blood-borne parasites. Some question that the co-vid infection may be connected to a pre-existing heavy parasite load of blood, lungs, and gut. Dr. Buhner tells us that it may also be an effective way to support the treatment of Mycoplasma, which is a blood pathogen. Using cryptolepis is a more gentle way to target infections than pharmaceuticals, with fewer possible side effects. As a preventative, it’s highly recommended to take it before ever being exposed to any type of virus or pathogenic infection. Of course, more testing needs to take place but it’s a great companion herb to other preventative herbs.

The variations for each product are in the order that we recommend for that specific one. This may give you an idea of which versions to get and where to start if you decide this is the route for you. There may be instances where we use an ingredient that can only come as a liquid. For example, pokeberry juice or essential oil. Only the liquid products will contain that specific ingredient and it will simply have to be left out of the powdered version. Herbal compounds may accumulate, over time. Saturation is key!
Standard Tinctures – Herbal compounds extracted in an alcohol base, which may offer the highest absorption. When a tincture sets under the tongue, the microscopic, pre-extracted compounds are readily bioavailable and they absorb through the tissue, similar to plant intake in nature! Alcohol may carry them into the bloodstream, where they may then may circulate to the organs. For this particular blend, we recommend a tincture.
Lipospheric Tinctures – Standard tinctures are put through an energetic process to collide the herbal compounds and encase them in oxygenated bubbles. This method is an oxygenation process, which completely changes the color of the solution. This version of a tincture may always off the highest absorption.
Capsules – Size 00, vegetable capsules. Our capsules are handmade, to order.
Herbal Tea – Each teabag can be brewed up to three times, resulting in three cups of tea, each. Generally, this means that you may get 60-75 cups of tea per 6 oz. order! Each label specifies the brewing instructions, which highly depends on the parts used in the tea.Top
Glycerites – Herbal compounds extracted in vegetable glycerin. This may be ideal for those most sensitive and especially children.
Tinctures are animal & child-safe, at the appropriate dosage. They can be used as an additive to personal products like lotion, detox bath, nebulizing, topically, and even as belly button soaks. Best results may come with working up to the highest dose, staying consistent.
We always choose unprocessed, ethically wildcrafted plant material, when possible. We also add freshly harvested, green plant material, wherever we can! This allows for a rare and unique availability of enzymes. Normally these enzymes are lost in the drying process and as far as we know, we are unique to us. Many companies that make simple elixirs don’t even know how to do it properly!
When we purchase herbs, we choose whole plant material, for us to grind into a silky fine powder, as we need it. This ensures quality, freshness, and abundant compounds. “Full-spectrum” means that the product contains every part of the plant, including the roots, and wherever we can, we even add the seed, flower, and/or fruit!
We have had our products energetically tested by an energetic practitioner, using a bioresonance scanning system that is well-known. She reported back that our products were over 300% more energetic than any others in her system! Over the years customers have continued to energetically test our products with their own body and they have passed every test they have ever been put through. Some say they have even surpassed the major brands!
Always use herbals wisely and with common sense!
