We recently talked about mulungu in two videos on our channel. Did you watch them yet?
In one of the videos, we taught a recipe for sleeping well and relaxing.
In the other, we talked about drinking mulungu tea to get the same effect as an anxiolytic. If you are curious, watch the suggested videos!
Mulungu has calming and tranquilizing properties that can improve the quality of sleep and fight insomnia.
According to experts, most cases of insomnia are resulting from anxiety, worries, fear, or insecurity, which put our body and mind in a state of alertness and tension.
The calming, analgesic, anti-inflammatory, anticonvulsant, hypotensive, and antipyretic properties of mulungu act to stop the tension.
This plant is highly recommended to treat emotional changes but has some other uses, such as:
Helps stop smoking
Mulungu has an alkaloid called erisodine that has a narcotic property that aids in fighting the habit of smoking.
Aids in cases of depression and emotional disorders
Thanks to its antidepressant action and tranquilizing effects, mulungu also acts in cases of panic disorders, compulsions, hysteria, neurosis, and anxiety disorders.
Good for your heart and blood pressure
People with high blood pressure can benefit from this tea, which has hypotensive action. Mulungu is an ally of heart health since it helps regulate the cardiovascular system.
Contributes to respiratory tract diseases
This plant has expectorating and antiasthmatic properties, which prevents and fights the symptoms of chronic diseases, such as sinusitis, bronchitis, and asthma.
Good for the urinary system
Mulungu is a diuretic, which is good for people who suffer from renal insufficiency. It also improves cases of urinary tract infection and cystitis.
Improves sleep quality and fights stress
This herb has a sedative effect that helps people who suffer from insomnia. Mulungu is a natural tranquilizer, which also alleviates stress.
Protects the liver
For those who suffer from hepatic issues – like hepatitis, for example –, mulungu tea can be of great help. It strengthens not only the liver but also the immune system.

Since it has antispasmodic action, mulungu helps with lots of different pains, especially period pains. It alleviates pain and bloating. Isn't it interesting?

Although the side-effects of mulungu are rare, some studies suggest that it may present symptoms such as sedation, drowsiness, and muscle paralysis. It may directly affect the execution of daily activities, causing a sensation of “laziness” or extreme relaxation.
Mulungu must also be avoided by pregnant or nursing women or patients with cardiovascular issues. This group of people must never consume any teas without medical orientation.
