Barlowe's Herbal Elixirs now offers a 4:1 Chuchuhuasi Powdered Extract. Chuchuhuasi is well known in Amazonia as a general tonic, a mild stimulant, and as a libido enhancer for both men and women. Traditionally, Chuchuhuasi is also used to treat joint and back pain. The Chuchuhuasi Certificate of Analysis (COA) of this particular batch is shown above. Bottled in Glass! No Stearates! No Fillers! No Junk!
***These vegetable-derived capsules (Vegan, Kosher and Halal certified) are filled on slow speed equipment and only pure, unadulterated herbal extract is contained in the capsules. There are no magnesium stearates, fillers, flow agents, gelatin, silicates, gluten, corn, wheat, rice, yeast, starch, titanium dioxide, artificial colors, artificial flavors or preservatives. Capsules produced with high speed equipment in herbal and dietary supplement "factories" generally contain several other ingredients, including powdered lubricants called STEARATES (which can greatly diminish an herb or supplement's absorption into the body). Check their labels! Barlowe also bottles his products in glass as he believes chemical vapors can vent from plastic containers and contaminate the contents and that glass is better for the environment.
Traditionally chuchuhuasi is used to relieve pain and inflammation (Chuchuhuasi means "trembling back", indicating its long standing use for back pain), to restore vigor, and for relieving menstrual pain and enhancing libido. It may also balance adrenal function. Chuchuhuasi is pretty close to an all-in-one remedy. Chuchuhuasi contains a variety of naturally-occurring compounds, including the alkaloids mayteine and maytansine. The bark is rich in several alkaloids, tannins, triterpenes and sesquiterpenes. The protein kinase C (PKC)-inhibiting agents in chuchuhuasi have been studied by Sphinx Phatmaceuticals of Durham, NC. PKC is implicated in many chronic degenerative disorders.

I wanted to say thank you for having such an amazing product. I bought this bark in a 1 pound bag from someone off of ebay and pilled it myself. I felt nothing at all from that powder. So, I decided to just stick with your products. Your's has made my life better. I work better, and sleep better. Thank you so much. By the way, you might want to put in your ad that this truly helps lupus patients! S.H., Jacksonville, Florida (8/26/2015)
