Calumba Tea - Jateorhiza palmata Miers

Origin: Greece

Used part: Rhizome


Calumba root is obtained from Jateorhiza Columba, Miers (N.O. Menispermaceoe), a lofty climbing plant with annual herbaceous stems and swollen fleshy roots. It is indigenous to Portuguese East Africa, growing in abundance in the forests in the region of the Zambesi. The root is much used by the natives as a remedy for dysentery and other diseases, and also on account of the yellow colouring matter it contains. It was brought to Europe towards the end of the seventeenth century, and after being long neglected came at last into general use. The roots are dug in the dry season, cut into transverse slices, and dried. The drug as imported is of a dingy brown colour and has a quantity of brown powder (soil) adhering to it (' natural' calumba root). It is cleaned by washing and brushing, and is then graded for sale (' washed ' calumba root).

Health benefits:

Calumba is indicated to treat some health problems related to dyspepsia, particularly in hypochlorhydria, in addition to anorexia, chronic enterocolitis and dysentery. The plant has a more pronounced bitter tonic effect than many other species. Another use of calumba comes from the narcotic effect it has, acting similarly to morphine, increasing muscle relaxation in the smooth muscles of the intestinal tract.
