Purchase a one pound package of Raintree's sustainably harvested pure jatoba bark powder (Hymenaea courbaril) - rich in active and beneficial phytochemicals that occur naturally in this plant. Jatoba is used throughout the Amazon rainforest for a quick boost of natural energy without any caffeine or other harmful stimulants. Chemical analysis of jatoba shows that it is rich in biologically active compounds including diterpenes, sesquiterpenes, flavonoids, and oligosaccharides. Some of these chemicals (such as copalic acid, delta-cadinene, caryophyllene and alpha-humulene) have been the subject of independent laboratory studies.
This plant is best prepared as a decoction. Use one teaspoon of powder for each cup of water. Bring to a boil and gently boil in a covered pot for 20 minutes. Allow to cool and settle for 10 minutes and strain warm liquid into a cup (leaving the settled powder in the bottom of the pan). It is traditionally taken in 1 cup dosages, 2-3 times daily. This decoction has also been traditionally used externally on the skin and as a douche.
Contraindications: Not to be used during pregnancy or breast-feeding.
Drug Interactions: None known.
Other Practitioner Observations: Jatoba can provide a significant energy lift to some people. Take prior to 4 pm to avoid sleep disturbances.
Pure 100% jatoba bark (Hymenaea courbaril) without any binders, fillers or other additives. This plant has been sustainably wild-harvested (without pesticides or fertilizers) in the Brazilian Amazon and is non-irradiated and non-fumigated.
