Kambo Peptides

Kambo contains a number of peptides that our human bodies have receptors for.  When Kambo enters into our lymphatic system the peptides deliver instructions to our body through our peptide receptors. It is the active peptides in Kambo that cause our body to move through a process of purging and detoxification. 

The main families of bioactive peptides found in Kambo so far include:

Phyllomedusin: affects the salivary glands, tear ducts, intestines, and bowels. Phyllomedusin works to contract the smooth muscle of the gastrointestinal tract and increases sections of the pancreas and bladder.


Phyllocaerulein: stimulates the pituitary gland and adrenal cortex, causing a contraction of the gallbladder which in turn secretes gastric and pancreatic juices.


Sauvagine: Has an effect of the corticotropin releasing hormone system and pituitary adrenal 

Deltorphin: offers pain blocking similar to opioids but without the potential for abuse or dependance. The strong analgesic properties of Deltorphin are 4000 times stronger than morphine and 40 times stronger than b-endorphins which is the body's natural pain killer. 
Phyllokinin (and phyllomedusin): a strong blood vessel dilators that increase the permeability of the blood-brain barrier. It also possesses antimicrobial and anti fungal benefits. 
Adenoregulin: Can work to treat stroke, depression, and cognitive loss diseases, such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.
Dermaseptin: a potent antimicrobial found to combat viruses, bacteria, fungi and protozoa. Some studies have revealed cancer inhibiting and killing effectiveness. It can also kill other pathogens like Herpes, HIV, Candida, and E. coli.
