Dragon’s Blood Liquid Extract:

Benefits and Usage

Do you want to improve your wound healing process, prevent skin infections or get rid of gastritis? Dragon’s Blood is the best natural solution!

Dragon’s Blood is a latex or sap obtained from trees of the genus Croton. These Amazonian trees are common on the hillsides of Peru, Colombia, Bolivia and Ecuador. Historically, in the traditional medicine of Peru, this sap has been used on wounds to stop bleeding, accelerate the healing process by avoiding noticeable scars and protect injuries from infection, serving as a barrier or “second skin”.

Dragon's Blood tree from Peru

Within the Croton genus, the Croton lechleri tree is the most studied and has proven properties as a powerful anti-inflammatory, healing, antiviral, antibacterial, antiseptic and analgesic. This tree reaches between 10 and 20 meters high. The way to obtain this wonderful substance is really surprising. The trunk of this plant produces a kind of reddish sap (latex) that is extracted through an incision in the form of “v” in the bark that expels as if it were “bleeding”.

Dragon's Blood Liquid Extract:

The first records of its use date back to the 17th century, when the Jesuit Bernabé Cobo wrote about the widespread use of Dragon’s Blood among the indigenous people of Mexico, Peru and Ecuador. Today, its properties to stop bleeding, heal wounds and protect against infection are discussed in books such as The Healing Power of Rainforest Herbs, by American naturopath Leslie Taylor.

Is it medically endorsed?

References on the use of the properties did not remain only in history. Hundreds of studies have been conducted to support its effectiveness. Since the 1980s, scientists have discovered that the healing power of Dragon’s Blood mainly related to the alkaloid called taspine.

Subsequent research in several countries has confirmed these early observations. Research published in 2004 in The Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine notes that the results largely support most ethnomedical uses of Dragon’s Blood.

Another study published in 2016 in The Journal of Traditional and Complementary Medicine and on the Science Direct website concludes that thanks to taspine and other compounds, Dragon’s Blood is a good and potent option for wound healing because it is natural, accessible, safe and affordable. In addition to healing, the aforementioned book also attributes anti-tumor and antiviral powers to taspine.

Oligomeric proanthocyanidins, or crofelemer, is another chemical compound contained in Dragon’s Blood. In January 2013, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved crofelemer, under the trade name Mytesi, for the treatment of non-infectious diarrhea in HIV-positive patients.
