Sunfood is always searching for the most potent superfoods and herbs, those which have figured prominently in traditional healing systems around the world. In the tradition of the best healing herbs from around the world, we are proud to bring you Sacha Jergon! This perennial herb grows wild in the Amazon basin up to the lower elevations of the Andes Mountains. The active elements of this herb are found in the tuberous off-white colored root. In its native habitat the root is pulverized in cold water and then drunk immediately for the highest level of therapeutic benefit. This herb earned its name due to its effectiveness in combating snake venom.
The outstanding potential of Sacha Jergon lies in its use as an activator of other herbs and as a liver rejuvenator. Much like Goji Berries or Reishi Mushroom in Traditional Chinese Medicine, Sacha Jergon forms the basis for a large majority of herbal formulations in the Amazon. The liver is the primary organ of detoxification and cleansing in the body. Any herb that is able to enhance liver function as well as increase the effectiveness of any other herb is a rare find, and Sacha Jergon serves as an herb of singular importance in this regard.
Take the anti-viral potential found in the traditional Amazonian superherb, Cat's Claw. What if there was a way to both broaden the immune-supportive capacity of this herb, as well as increase its power over time?
Consider the bark of the giant Amazonian climax rainforest tree, Chuchuhuasi. Long known for its abilities to reduce arthritic pain and enhance libido, what if there was an herb that could boost the effectiveness of Chuchuhuasi and even increase its effects with continuous usage?
Sacha Jergon provides a key to unlocking the potential of many of the extraordinarily rich herbs of Amazonia. Sacha Jergon may be used in conjunction with any combination of herbs to help improve immunity, cleanse the body, and restore optimal health and well-being.
The entire plant of Sacha Jergon must be harvested in order to prepare the root. Up until recently there has been no way to harvest this healing herb sustainably. Working closely with our sources in Peru, Sunfood is proud to offer Sacha Jergon which has been processed in a conscious manner. Every harvest is accompanied by carefully orchestrated plantings in the nearby rainforest. Once the plants are harvested the roots are dried at low temperatures and then ground down to a fine powder as quickly as possible, in order to preserve the highest level of healing properties of this herb.
Sunfood is pleased to offer raw Sacha Jergon powder in a form which may be easily mixed into any juice, smoothie, or beverage. As this herb has traditionally been used in cold water infusions, no special preparation is required. Sacha Jergon mixes easily into cold water and has a mildly sweet taste. One of the cornerstones of Amazonian Herbal healing, Sacha Jergon may even be mixed into a smoothie with Raw Cacao Beans to increase the antioxidant and heart-opening effects of the raw chocolate.
Each 3.5oz bag of Sacha Jergon contains 21 servings of 1 teaspoon each.
