Botanical Bio - Desmodium

Desmodium adscendens is indigenous to many tropical countries and grows mainly in regions of equatorial Africa, in swampy areas or by oil palms. Leaves comprise three oval leaflets, which are pale green in color, and have been used for thousands of years in the traditional pharmacopeia of certain African countries such as Senegal, Congo, and Ivory Coast. Desmodium adscendens is an herbaceous perennial leguminous plant that parasitizes the trunks of palm trees and bushes. Triterpenic Saponins and Indole Alkaloids are among some of its bioactive components. It has high-Protein content and it is rich in Minerals such as Sulfur, Calcium, Copper, Phosphorous, Iron, Magnesium and Zinc. Its chemical composition entails certain Fatty Acids such as Lauric, Oleic, Linoleic and Arachidonic. We have selected a Desmodium Glycerinated Extract with a 1:5 ratio. This means that for each gram of Extract we have used 5 grams of fresh plant. Our Desmodium Glycerinated Extract is titrated in Saponins 2 mg/ml, providing 36 mg per day.

Additional info

Standardized Extracts

One of the primary advantages of our formulation is the use of standardized extracts. This means that the active plant ingredients that provide medicinal properties are always the same. In the case of Desmodium, its titration in Saponins ensures a constant daily dose of 6mg. In addition, we have selected a Desmodium glycerinated extract with a ratio 1:5. This means that for each gram of extract we have used 5g of plant.

Glycerinated Extracts

The advantages of vegetable glycerin based extracts with respect to other solvents like water or alcohol are as follows:

  • The active plant ingredients are not affected.
  • Vegetable glycerin promotes the homogeneous distribution of active ingredients throughout the product.
  • Vegetable glycerin delays oxidation; therefore preservatives are not needed.
  • Vegetable glycerin is the only solvent that preserves the natural flavor derived from the plant.
  • Glycerin has a low glycemic index and therefore breaks down sugars slowly. This way, we avoid blood sugar spikes.
  • Vegetable glycerin is a natural humectant that absorbs moisture. This property facilitates cellular dehydration without damaging the overall plant protein structures.

Organic Certification

Our Desmodium Glycerinated Extract is certified organic. This certification ensures that our crops are grown, harvested and processed under the most strict certification standards. The absence of chemical additives preserves the properties of the native plant.

High Quality Bottle

Drasanvi has chosen to use a special glass bottle. This is an opaque bottle, characterized by preventing the passage of visible light spectrum. This protects the products from oxidation, so our glycerinated extracts are kept in perfect condition for longer periods of time.
