Pilocarpus microphyllus

The harvesting of jaborandi leaves from the wild is just for the sake of getting this oil, which is used in herbal medicine as well as conventional medications. Various extracted substances from the oil are used in many kinds of useful medications; the alkaloid called pilocarpine found in the oil is primary treatment in dealing with the dangerous blinding disease glaucoma - that affects millions of people across the world.
The real nature and ways in which the alkaloid pilocarpine works inside the human body is indicated by these different effects it induces. The alkaloid tends have a behavior that resembles the action of a substance in the body that actively aids the body in transmitting impulses from the ends of autonomous nerves in the nervous system - particularly the ones that are involved in triggering the automatic functions in the body, including the nerves in the cardiac muscles that are responsible for the stimulation of the beating of the heart and those included in optical focusing of the human eye, as well as the muscle groups involved in strength and movement.

The alkaloid has beneficial effects on glaucoma affected eyes. If a little of Jaborandi is daubed on the eye of a person suffering from the initial symptoms of glaucoma, it tends to stimulate the optic muscles in the eye responsible for the contraction of the pupils - this effect results in relieving the pressure inside the eyeball. While this action of the herbal remedy will not result in a complete cure from glaucoma, it can at lest alleviate the symptoms of this dreaded disease and the eyesight of the affected individual during glaucoma, blindness results by the gradual accumulation of pressure inside the eyeball, till all the nervous mechanisms operating in the eye stop functioning. In a little over fifteen minutes, the beneficial effects of an application of pilocarpine become apparent and the alkaloid continues to protect the eye for a full twenty four hours after a single application.

Natives of Amazonia have used the herb in many traditional remedies, and name "jaborandi" is a derivation from a native word that can be translated as "slobber weed", due to the intense salivation the herb induces in a person who has consumed it. (Jaborandi oil should not be taken internally). The name “alfavaca” has also been used to refer to the jaborandi in some other South American regions; the herb is marketed in much of Latin America and the United States as an ingredient in herbal shampoos under this name. Is largely used in Brazil to prevent baldness.

The jaborandi remedy was also used by native peoples in Brazil are a treatment for diabetes and to stimulate perspiration in the body. Foreign scientists would become attracted to the latter effect of the herbal remedy. The plant was introduced to Europeans in the 1870s. In Europe, the ability of the plant to induce perspiration in people and its power to bring forth salivation came into use as a medicine for individuals affected by a dry mouth. Dryness of the mouth is a symptom that is still treated using the herbal jaborandi medication; this type of dryness is particularly observable in individuals who are undergoing chemotherapy in case of cancer. The medication used in homeopathic medicine for the treatment of mumps includes the jaborandi as one of the primary ingredients. Two beneficial alkaloids, called pilocarpine and jaborine are found in the oil extracted from the leaves of the jaborandi plant. The alkaloid known as pilocarpine boosts and mimics the action of the primary neurotransmitting substance called acetylcholine in the nervous system. Acetylcholine is the main chemical transmitter of all nerve impulses in the parasympathetic system as well as the brain. The alkaloid pilocarpine affects and regulates salivation in the mouth, perspiration rates, and the functioning of the tear glands - it also influences the muscular contraction of the eyes by the process of stimulation of the paralyzed nerve endings.

The Amazonian tropical forest is the native habitat of the jaborandi plant; this plant is indigenous to the rainforests found in Brazil and the neighboring South American countries that are included in the region called Amazonia.
