Effects of Uvuma-Omhlope
In the traditional healing arts of South African peoples like the Zulu and the Xhosa, the root of the shrub Uvuma-Omhlope (Synaptolepis Kirkii or simply Kirkii) is used as oneirogen. In other words, it’s a dream-stimulating plant. This dream herb helps you to dream vividly, remember your dreams more clearly and also stimulates the occurrence of lucid dreams – dreams in which your consciousness is ‘awake’ and you can control what happens. People also report to wake up alert, clear-minded and well-rested owing to Uvuma-Omhlope, even if they’ve only gotten a few hours of sleep. .
Uvuma-Omhlope contains the active compound kirkinine. Kirkinine, is a neurotrophin, a proteïne aiding the development and recovery of neurons. Some people suggest the oneirogen properties of Uvuma-Omhlope are a result of the presence of kirkinine in this root. However, little scientific research has been done to prove this.
You can use the ground root of Uvuma-Omhlope to brew a tea. This is also the preferred method of consumption in the traditional healing arts of South Africa. For tea, let the powder seep in hot water for approximately 5 minutes. A common dose would be around 300-400 mg for one of tea, but some people who have experimented with Uvuma-Omhlope preferred to take up to 700 mg per cup. See what works for you. Drink the tea an hour before going to bed. If you wait longer, Uvuma-Omhlope might actually backfire and keep you from sleeping! .
Uvuma-Omhlope has not been subject to much scientific research. For this reason, little is known about its active agents. We are very curious to hear about your experiences!/p>
Uvuma-Omhlope (Synaptolepis Kirkii) is a blue-green shrub with roots as white as porcelain. It belongs to the family of Thymelaeaceae, a large family of flowering plants. In the traditional healing arts of South African peoples, Uvuma-Omhlope is an important plant for sangoma doctors. Along with plants like Lesoko and Umagupu, Uvuma-Omhlope is used by these sangoma to make Ubulawu. Ubulawu is a medicine that helps people to interpret their dreams and communicate with their ancestors. Ubulawu is also used for divination and prophecy.
Some research has found that the active compound kirkinine could contribute to the development of tumors. There is absolutely no conclusive proof to support this claim: the substance was only tested on mice.
