The most bitter of the bitter herbs, Sambiloto has been used for centuries to treat gastro-intestinal and upper respiratory infections, fever, herpes, sore throat, and a variety of other chronic and infectious diseases.

Sambiloto greatly enhances immune system function, by releasing interferon, and boosting lymphatic system function. Interferon is a protein (called a cytokine) made by cells in response to virus. A potent antiviral agent, it’s also anti-proliferative (stops the reproduction of virus). During 2021, Sambiloto was declared by the Thai government as a cure for Covid, and related diseases, due to its ability to stop Covid-related spike protein production in the body.

A few benefits….

  • Analgesic: pain killer.
  • Anti-hyperglycemic / Anti-diabetic: blood glucose lowering effect.
  • Anti-inflammatory: reduces swelling and cuts down exudation from capillaries, anti-inflammatory action probably mediated, in part, by adrenal function.
  • Antibacterial: fights bacterial activity, remarkably beneficial in reducing diarrhea arising from bacterial infections.
  • Antimalarial: prophylactic properties prevent infection and parasite multiplication in the blood stream.
  • Antihepatotoxic: eliminates liver toxins, such as products of alcohol consumption.
  • Antipyretic: fever reducer – caused by multiple infections or by toxins.
  • Antithrombotic: blood clot preventative. This is where the prevention of heart attack comes in.
  • Antiviral: inhibits viral activity. Inhibits HIV replication.
  • Antioxidant: operates against free radicals.
  • Cancerolytic: fights, even kills, cancer cells.
  • Cardioprotective: protects heart muscles, an excellent heart attack preventative.
  • Choleretic: liver and digestive cleansing, increases the flow of bile.
  • Depurative: cleans and purifies the system, particularly the blood.
  • Expectorant: promotes clearance of mucus from the respiratory system.
  • Hepatoprotective: protects the liver and gall bladder, causes them to eliminate toxins.
  • Hypoglycemic: blood sugar reducer, protective against diabetes.
  • Immune Enhancer: increases white cell phagocytosis, inhibits HIV-1 replication, improves CD4+ and T lymphocyte counts.
  • Thrombolytic: blood clot eliminator.
  • Vermicidal: kills intestinal worms.
  • An excellent cure for Lyme Disease.

Sambiloto is a potent stimulator of the immune system in two ways: (1) Antigen-specific response: antibodies are made to counteract invading microbes, and (2) Nonspecific immune response: macrophage cells scavenge and destroy invaders. Sambiloto activates both responses – making it effective against a variety of infectious and cancer-causing agents. Sambiloto is an excellent all around herb for treatment of Lyme disease.

Sambiloto is cytotoxic (cell-killing) against cancer, namely human epidermoid carcinoma (squamous cell carcinoma) of the skin lining of the nasopharynx and against lymphocytic leukemia cells.

Sambiloto produces anti-hypertensive (blood pressure lowering) effects. Noradrenaline, a hormone secreted by the brain, acts to constrict blood vessels and increase heart rate, blood pressure, and blood sugar levels. Sambiloto extract inhibits the increase in blood pressure that is caused by noradrenaline. Sambiloto relaxes the smooth muscle in the walls of blood vessels. This relaxation prevents the blood vessel from constricting and limiting blood flow to the heart, brain, and other organs in the body. Sambiloto keeps blood, and therefore oxygen, flowing to the brain. Diminished blood flow to the brain can cause short-term memory loss, ringing in the ears, dizziness, headaches, depression, and impaired mental performance.


Sambiloto has clear anti-fertility as well as pregnancy-terminating effects in larger amounts. In India, where Sambiloto is used for common ailments such as diarrhea, fever, and other digestive disorders, it is recommended that the herb be used only for short-term treatment. This is due to the content of compounds that are contraceptive in nature.
