Erythrina Mulungu has long been used by the indigenous peoples in the Amazon. Leaf or bark of Mulungu were used in Brazilian traditional medicine as a sedative, to calm an overexcited nervous system, to lower blood pressure and for insomnia and depression. 

This is a TPA liquid extract, made from Mulungu bark, in a 4:1 ratio. TPA means "Total Purified Alkaloids" and is not a simple extract instead containing a broad spectrum of all alkaloids present. 1 ml of extract contains 4 grams of bark. It is therefore 4 times stronger than plain bark and is used by the drop. This liquid extract is made through a unique extraction process that aims to keep all the necessary synergistic active components intact in their natural form, but in a very concentrated form. This means it is not an extract aimed at only certain actives but also all other actives are in the end product. No solvents are used during the extraction process. Just water. Additionally, no heat is applied in the process. It can be considered a "raw" produced essence. At the final stage some alcohol was added to the extract to preserve it. The liquid extract has an unlimited shelf life.

One single drop can be used under the tongue. Three drops in a juice or soda makes an excellent tasty drink. (It is entirely watersoluble). 

Other names: Erythrina mulungu, Mulungu

Mulungu is a medium-sized, well-branched tree that grows 10-14 m high. It produces a profusion of pretty, reddish-orange flowers (pollinated by hummingbirds) at the ends of the tree's many branches. The tree is sometimes called "coral flower," as the flowers resemble the color of orange coral. It produces black seed pods containing large, red-and-black seeds, which are sometimes used by indigenous peoples to make necklaces and jewelry. Mulungu is indigenous to Brazil, parts of Peru, and tropical areas in Latin America and, typically, is found in marshes and along riverbanks.

The Erythrina genus comprises more than 100 species of trees and shrubs (mostly all heavily armed with spines or thorns) in the topical and subtropical regions of both hemispheres. The mulungu tree (first recorded in 1829) is known by two botanical names, Erythrina mulungu and Erythrina verna. Another closely-related species, E. crista-galli, is used interchangeably in South American herbal medicine systems and is found farther south on the South American continent. The flower of E. crista-galli is the national flower of Argentina.

The chemicals in Mulungu have been studied extensively; they have been found to comprise large amounts of novel flavonoids, triterpenes, and alkaloids.
