Sangre de Drago Liquid Resin Extract

Sangre de Drago Liquid Resin Extract, also known as Dragonís Blood, is extracted from medium/large tropical trees that thrive within the Amazonian regions of South America. When the trunk of the tree is cut or wounded, it exudes a dark, red, resinous sap that resembles blood. The curative powers of the thick resin and tree bark are well known by indigenous tribes of Mexico, Peru and Ecuador. They painted the sap onto their skin to help stop bleeding, protect wounds and promote healing. The antiseptic sap dries quickly, forming a seal over wounded skin, preventing infection and allowing the skin to heal. In tribal medicine, the Sangre De Drago sap was used both externally and also internally, to heal wounds, stomach ulcers, throat infections, mouth ulcers, skin afflictions and insect bites. The sap is also believed to be useful as an anti-herpes agent. These ethnomedical applications of the sap have been confirmed by both in-vitro and in-vivo studies.

The wound healing capabilities of Sangre De Drago Liquid Resin Extract are attributed to its active constituents: proanthocyanadins (antioxidants), a lignan called dimethylcedrusine, and an alkaloid called taspine. Taspine has been shown to have anti-inflammatory, anti-sarcomic, anti-viral, anti-tumor and cicatrizing properties. Studies have also shown that Sangre de Drago Resin can help contract a wound, form a crust at the wound site, assist in the formation of collagen and regenerate skin cells.

This unique combination of anti-inflammatory, antiseptic and cicatrizing properties make the resin an exceptional ingredient in formulations intended for healing skin abrasions, wounds, burns, eczema and rashes.
