Jergon Sacha

$ 29.50

Wildcrafted by Indigenous Peoples in Ucayali and Madre de Dios Region of the Peruvian Amazon

Jergón sacha is one of the more unusual and interesting rainforest remedies coming from the Amazon today. Its "signature plant" status as a snakebite remedy is well known in South America and highly regarded. Without proper research to validate its traditional ethnomedical uses, however, it may take time for it to be a popular herbal remedy in North America. It is hoped that, with increasing sales in Peru and Eastern Europe for jergón sacha, someone will answer the call to perform this much-needed research - especially as it has application for treating deadly viruses.

Also known as fer-de-lance, sacha jergón, erva-jararaca, jararaca.

Wildcrafted Harvest 

Wildcrafted, dried and processed into a powder in the Peruvian Amazon. Oftentimes the color fluctuates from a yellow powder to a lighter white powder. This depends on harvest, types of tubers and seasons. Don't be alarmed as it's natural to witness this variation based on when it's harvested.
