ATTRIBUTES

The Mulungu tree grows mainly in Brazil and Peru and less so in other parts of South America. Botanical records note Mulungo for the first time in 1829. It produces many branches and can grow up to 14m in height. The flowers of the tree slightly resemble coral and is for this reason sometimes also called “coral flower.”

While Mulungu is known for being a strong, natural sedative, it can also provide other potential health benefits.

One group of active chemicals found within Mulungu are alkaloids, which are present in most types of Erythrina. Erythrina mulungu, the Mulungu tree, contains 20 such active isoquinoline alkaloids.
