DESMODIUM.a (Desmodium adscendens).

A Powerful and Safe Lung and Liver Support

Desmodium adscendens is another wondrous rainforest herb which has been traditionally used by native peoples for a wide variety of conditions including: hepatitis‚ protection of liver from cirrhosis‚ muscle‚ tendon‚ and spinal pain‚ rheumatism‚ asthma (has bronchial-dilating qualities)‚ allergic symptoms and eczema.

Desmodium adscendens (or adscendens) is a vine‚ which grows wild in the Amazon rainforest of Peru and other South American countries and on the West Coast of Africa as well. It is believed to have been used for thousands of years by peoples native to the areas where it grows for a variety of health issues‚ including the following: asthma‚ bronchitis‚ jaundice‚ hepatitis‚ muscle cramps and backache. In Peru it is called Amor Seco or Pega Pega or any of a half dozen other names; in Belize it is know as “Strong Back” herb. It is an herbacious‚ perennial plant which grows up the trunks of trees. The leaves and stems are the medicinal parts. The therapeutic phytochemicals in Desmodium a. include alkaloids of the family of indolic alkaloids. The plant contains 4 mg/kg of alkaloids expressed in tryptamine. Fatty acids are present in a concentration of up to 3%‚ which is relatively rich in unsaturated acids.

Research Findings: Desmodium a. has been studied in France‚ England‚ Canada and Ghana (one of its countries of origin) including bronchial dilation‚ relaxation of smooth muscles‚ anti-histamine effects‚ and its ability to help normalize elevated liver enzyme levels.

Effects on the Lungs:

These studies have shown an inhibition of the contraction generated by histamine on the smooth muscles of guinea pigs. Tests have targeted the ileum and the bronchial muscles‚ and it has been shown that the relaxation effect on the bronchials is very rapid (within a minute or two). These studies confirm the traditional usage for asthma‚ so well known that in Ghana the first line of treatment for patients in an acute asthma attack is the use of Desmodium a.

Other effects on the lungs include helping to clear the sinuses‚ clearing congested nasal passages rapidly‚ helping to stop a lingering cough after the flu and even helping to clear up snoring.

- Congestive Heart Failure (Coughing).
- Chronic Cough.
- Nasal Drip.
- Asthma.
- Bronchial Spasms.

Dr. Cherkesian‚ a licensed acupuncturist and naturopathic doctor who practices in Boca Raton‚ Florida has found remarkable improvement in his patients with congestive heart failure (CHF) who were coughing a great deal because of the inability of their heart to clear their lungs‚ despite their taking different pharmaceutical lung-clearing drugs.

Effects on the Liver:

The nutritional support provided for people with jaundice and different kinds of hepatitis with Desmodium a. is well established in West Africa. Medical doctors have documented the gradual normalization of elevated liver enzyme levels over a period of months. Improvements in liver enzyme levels are noted even within a week. (For documentation of several cases‚ see below). This effect takes place because of the indolic alkaloids present in the plant. There are no anti-viral properties against the hepatitis virus in Desmodium a.‚ as there are in Phyllanthus niruri or “Break-Stone” herb). The normalization of elevated liver enzymes—including cases of chronic hepatitis C—is facilitated entirely by the nutrients in the herb which support liver repair.

Analgesic Effects on Muscles and Tendons (Anti-spasmodic):

Traditionally used for minor and occasional pain due to trauma and physical injury.

The studies are based on taking Desmodium a. capsules‚ but native peoples use this plant as a juice or a tea (aqueous extract) to get rid of jaundice‚ hepatitis‚ relieve asthma‚ relieve rheumatism and to clear up eczema.

      Love, Love this product

      from Raleigh NC on 11/17/2019
      I love this product for treating intermittent asthma flare-ups. I'd rather take this product over pharmaceutical inhalers any day; as this is a healthier alternative.


      Allows my body to handle asthma flare-ups in a more healthier way, without coating my lungs with chemicals. It doesn't hurt that product is good for the liver, also.


      When you are on a fixed income, this product is pricey!

      Love it!

      from Freeport ME on 6/25/2016
      I use Royal Desmodium Liver-Lung Support Liquid Extract by Whole World Botanicals to save my liver from statins and blood pressure medications, which I absolutely have to take now after having a stroke. My sister in France who knows a lot about all these natural herbal medicines said I absolutely had to get this to protect my liver and everything else Statins are destroying.


      It doesn't taste bad, has a little sweet taste actually. I drink it in the morning. Use two droppers ( I don't take the time to count haha). It's a large container so it lasts a long time.
