Kambo (also known as “sapo,” or “toad vaccine”) is a substance harvested from the poisonous secretions of the Amazon tree frog, Phyllomedusa bicolor. For hundreds of years this traditional frog medicine is being used by various Amazonian tribes for hunting prowess, curing ailments of the mind, body, and spirit and to remove negative energy – the so called “Panema”. Kambo is said to provide numerous benefits such as gaining strength and maintaining health – both physically and mentally.
Two time Nobel Prize nominee Vittorio Erspamer (he discovered the neurotransmitter Serotonin) was the first person to analyse Kambo in a lab and describe it a “fantastic chemical cocktail with potential medical applications, unequalled by any other amphibian”.
Since Erspamer’s research this purgative, immunity-boosting medicine has gained renown outside of the Amazon as a powerful treatment for chronic pain, mental illness and addiction.
