About Mimosa Supreme
Mimosa Supreme is pure powdered Mimosa Pudica in a veggie cap. Like all other Supreme products there are no fillers, binders, flow agents or other substances added in the encapsulation process. Mimosa, also known as the sensitivity plant, has been used for thousands of years for medicinal purposes, especially in Ayurvedic Medicine. Traditionally, this plant has been used to combat many health challenges due to the beneficial phytochemical presence of terpenoids, flavonoids, glycosides, alkaloids, quinines, phenols, tannins, saponins, and coumarins. These uses include but are not limited to the following:
- As a broad spectrum antimicrobial mimosa demonstrates effectiveness against Aspergillus fumigatus, Citrobacter divergens, Plasmodium berghei, and Klebsiella pneumonia in studies. Clinically, physicians have reported it to be effective in treating various parasites as well as various forms of Borrelia. According to a few physicians that have used mimosa for a number of years “many patients experience elimination of parasites into the toilet so they have to be informed prior to starting the herb” that visible parasites are a possibility.
- Mimosa is the go to herb for Hemorrhoids in Ayurveda. This is due to the amazing wound healing abilities of the methanolic extracts of the plant. Traditionally the powder has been made into a paste and applied topically but oral supplementation can be effective as well.
- Anti-diarrheal activity was demonstrated on rats that were given castor oil induced diarrhea and PGE2 induced enteropooling along with reducing gut motility after a charcoal meal. The ethanolic extract of Mimosa showed significant diarrhea inhibition.
- Anti hepatotoxic activity was demonstrated through the measurement of high serum SGOT, SGPT, ALP, and total bilirubin in CCL4 induced liver damage in albino rats. Mimosa helped achieve near normal levels within 14 days.
- Anti-diabetic activity was demonstrated in a study with rats on a high fructose diet. Mimosa reduced the body weight, improved insulin sensitivity, lowered blood lipids and reduced liver damage. Furthermore, blood tests showed in a different study that serum cholesterol, triglycerides, LDL, and VLDL all decreased while HDL increased.
- Analgesic and anti-inflammatory activity has been demonstrated due to the flavonoid presence in the ethanolic extract.
- Mimosa demonstrated potent anti-venom activity. This was demonstrated by the inhibition of lethality, phospholipase activity, edema forming activity, fibrinolytic activity and hemorrhagic activity of Naja naja and Bungarus caeruleus venoms.
- Anti-ulcer activity was demonstrated against pylorus ligation, aspirin and ethanol-induced ulcers due to the plants ethanolic extract.
- Mimosa does possess anticonvulsant activity, specifically for drug-induced seizures. It also demonstrated to be an antagonist for N-methyl-D-aspartate induced turning behavior.
To quote Fagenholz: “In conclusion, Mimosa possesses great medicinal properties. It seems to benefit the majority of patients with microbial issues. However, we do view it as an elite anti-parasitic due to its action on large intestinal worms. This herb needs to be considered in any resistant parasitic or microbial patient cases and in all patients that test positive for Borrelia”.
Mimosa Pudica is listed as a non-toxic plant for humans on the University of California’s list of safe and poisonous garden plants. It is also listed as safe for humans and pets on the University of Connecticut College of Agriculture and Natural Resources website.
