Kambo derives from the secretion of the Amazonian giant waxy tree frog Phyllomedusa Bicolor.

The secretion is comprised of a unique complex cocktail of bioactive peptides that produce amazing benefits for body and mind. Italian pharmacologist Vittorio Erspamer of the University of Rome was nominated twice for the Nobel Prize and is considered to be the first scientist to analyze Kambo in the laboratory concluding that Kambo contains a“​fantastic chemical cocktail with potential medical applications unmatched by any other amphibian.”

The benefits of Kambo stem from the bioactive peptides and neuropeptides found in the Kambo secretion. The bioactive peptides found in Kambo exert a positive effect in humans due to their health-promoting properties. They can exert several beneficial effects like preventing diseases or modulating the physiological systems once they are absorbed in the human body. These peptides perform a broad range of functions that can be involved in the gastrointestinal system such as the anti-obesity and satiety peptides, the cardiovascular system such as anti-hypertensive, anti-thrombotic, and hypo-cholesterol peptides, the immune system such as anti-microbial, and immune-modulatory peptides, and the nervous system such as opioid peptides.

Tribes of the Amazon often refer to Kambo as “Hunting Magic” as it strengthens the physical body as well as the mind. Kambo brings energy and stamina into the body and sharpens the senses. It makes the mind still and allows one to think clearly. The small things that bother us in our day to day life does not seem to be as significant following a Kambo session, allowing one to focus on the things that truly matter.
