This product contains pure Sangra de Grado resin wild-harvested in Peru.
A pure natural resin extracted from the sangre de grado tree (Croton lechleri) which is also called "dragon's blood." Sangre de grado resin is a storehouse of plant chemicals including proanthocyanidins (antioxidants), simple phenols, diterpenes, phytosterols, and biologically active alkaloids and lignans. Scientists have attributed many of the biologically active properties of the resin to two main "active" constituents: an alkaloid named taspine, and a lignan named dimethylcedrusine.
Raintree Nutrition's sangre de grado resin has been sustainably wild-harvested in the Peruvian Amazon. It is rich in active and beneficial phytochemicals which occur naturally in this plant and is unconditionally guaranteed. Raintree's supply of sangre de grado comes from the high jungle of Peru where new organic cultivation programs with medicinal plants are replacing old coca plantations and providing new sources of income for poor farmers on their existing lands.

iHerb Customer Reviews
On a scale from 1-10, I would rate this product a 7. I am Peruvian and my relatives use to send me a very pure form of Sangre de Grado from the Amazon Jungle. Now its too difficult for them to send it to me because the bottles do not contain their origin or proof of sanitation. This pure form of Sangre de Grado was superb and I have yet to find it. My search continues for a bottle of Sangre de Grado that comes close to the quality that my relatives used to send to me.
I love the sap of this tree otherwise known as Dragon's Blood. I use it daily. In Peruvian herbal medicine it is used internally for ulcers in the mouth, throat, intestines and stomach; as an antiviral for upper respiratory viruses, stomach viruses and HIV; internally and externally for cancer and, topically, for skin disorders, insect bites and stings. In Brazilian traditional medicine the sap currently is used for wounds, hemorrhaging, diarrhea, mouth ulcers, and as a general tonic. It is also active against the herpes virus.
