Bas cedar bark medicinal herb is used to purify the blood

My husband took home Bas cedar bark medicinal herb one evening and proceeded to tell me all about its health benefits.  The Bas cedar (Guazuma Ulmifolia) tree can be found right in the open field behind my house.  Some of the benefits I knew before, some I did not.  I was so enthused and was ready to inform my readers of this perennial plant.

This tree is native to the Caribbean, Mexico, South and Central America.  We have  lots of trees here in Jamaica.  It is from the Malvaceae family bearing brown-yellow flowers, with fruits containing many seeds.

The common names are Mutamba, Guazima, West Indian Elm, Ba cedar, and Bay cedar.  The parts used for herbal medicine are the root, leaves and bark.  However, the bark is most utilized, especially by men.

The medicinal properties are antiviral, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer, diuretic, astringent as well as antioxidant.  Some of its constituent are tannins, procyanidin B-2, precocene, flavonoids, alkaloids, carbohydrate, carotenoids, sterols and saponins.

Health benefits of bas cedar bark medicinal herb

Bas cedar is used as an aphrodisiac. It is used to enhance the sexual performances of both men and women. The interest from men in regards to these aphrodisiac herbs is phenomenal and understanding due to the fact that they want to be in optimum performance in bed.  These herbs are also safer to use than man made synthetic enhancers.  The search is always on for natural remedies.  It is the best way to go.  Bas cedar is one of those natural remedies.

A tonic made from the bark can treat female conditions, hemorrhage, inflammation, cancer, liver conditions, prostate conditions, eye ailments, skin conditions, flu, colds, and bronchial conditions such as asthma.

It is also used to promote hair growth, especially for those who suffer with baldness, popularly known as hair loss.  The crushed seeds may be steeped in water for the treatment of venereal diseases, diarrhea, coughs, colds as well as dysentery.

My grandfather and grandmother used bas cedar to make tonic.  I can recall them boiling the bark and storing it for further use.  It would be no surprise to them, if they were still alive, to find out today that it is used as ingredient in other tonics.

Preparing bas cedar with coconut water

My husband prepared his bas cedar bark concoction with coconut water. He placed the bark in a jug of coconut water and let it steep for three days before consuming it.  This is just one way to prepare this herbal medicine.

Precaution

Precaution is always necessary when consuming herbs, including bas cedar.  Therefore, in case of pregnancy and high blood pressure, avoid using bas cedar bark.
