Ethnomedical Uses: Today, Iporurú is recommended highly for arthritis and rheumatism remedies in local herbal pharmacies in Peru and throughout the Amazon, the bark or leaves are tinctured (generally with the local rum, called aguardente or pinga) as a local remedy for rheumatism, arthritis, colds, and muscle pains. It is well known for relieving the symptoms of osteoarthritis, and in aiding flexibility and range of motion. In addition, locals prepare the leaves into a decoction for coughs. Throughout Peru it is regarded as a remedy for impotency as well as for balancing blood sugar levels in diabetics. Iporurú has been gaining popularity among North American athletes and health practitioners recently; reports have it that Iporurú provides nutritional support to muscle and joint structures. Here in the U.S., its reported analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties have begun to make it popular also to those suffering from arthritis and other joint problems.
