A powerful laxative: Jamalgota

Do you know what is Jamalgota?

A poisonous herbal bean that needs proper guidance before use.

Don't let the pale green leaves of this herbal plant fool you.

As many traditional healers have consumed this bean in form of a laxative, it is not safe to use for health purposes.

I often heard of people talking about ''Jamal,'' a short name for Jamalgota.

I discovered the actual meaning of Jamalgota a few days ago.

Learning never stops!

The urdu name for a medicine of two plants.

The Croton tiglium and Jatropha curca, or known as curcas.

The laxative comes from the crushed-up leaves of the Croton tiglium is used for certain health issues.

Those who suffer from constipation can use this laxative.

It is potent and is not for everyone.

The plant Croton tiglium is commonly grown in the following regions:

Pakistan

India

New Guinea

Indonesia

China

The potent plant grows wild in the Philippines.

People use these plants with tradition purposes. These healers know the exact amount of the herb to be used in a mixture. You need to have such knowledge in order to use this herb. In failure to knowing more about the herb, one can cause a deadly experience.

Use this herb to give you a positive health experience and not a negative health response.

More than one seed of the Croton tiglium will surely kill an adult. A larger amount of fifteen will kill an animal.

The plant is used in healing of the following ailments:

To treat gastroenteritis.

Throat infections.

Skin problems such as eczema.

To treat mamtitis.

Abortions.

Snakebites for when used externally.

The oil from the Jatropha Curcas serves its purpose in the following ways:

A skin irritant.

A variety of disease are treated with this oil.

To get rid of cancerous cells.

To treat rheumatism.

The root juice is used to treat painful hemorrhoids.

The herbal plant is used for cleaning dental issues. The actual bark of this herbal plant makes a blue dye. Also, I read that the fruit of the Jaropha Curcas and the wood is used as bio fuel.

It is a perfect oil to use as bio-fuel. At the moment this oil is not used for any foods.

After recent research, I learned that the oil is planted as an oil crop in South America.

These crops are used as soaps, paper, toothpaste, including embalming fluid.

Another interesting recipe for this oil crop is that it is used in cough mixtures and as a moistener in your daily use of tobacco.

I don't know if you read the leaflet from the purchase of a bottle of cough syrup, or cough mixture. It explains of the ingredients used in the medication and of the side effects. So, it is good to pay attention to the necessary information provided on medication.

Jamalgota is commonly known as Purging croton.

Apparently, a strong laxative, you got to watch how you consume this herbal bean.

The effects can be painful.

Camps are experienced during the passing of stools.

My curiosity of Jamalgota taught me more than I had expected. I am glad to have stumbled upon this herbal bean through conversations.

The dangerous effects that it has does not allow for the use in constipation.

The different herbal plant as its medicinal purposes from its root, the seeds, the leaves, the seed oil and from the outer bark of Croton roots.

Some people risk their health and use the herbal bean as a colon cleanser.

It is seldom used for hair loss.

To reduce the irritant properties do the following:

Soak the beans over night.

The outer layer of the beans should be removed.

The leaf from the inside of the croton kernels must be removed.

Thereafter tie in a cloth and steam the kernels.

In a stainless container add some cow's milk and once heated it produces some steam.

Above the milk pot place the formed bag and allow for the steam to be absorbed.

This, you should do for at least three hours, and while the formed bag is inside the milk container.

After the process is ended, the seeds should be removed and washed off in lukewarm water.

The access croton oil from the bean can be removed with blotting papers.

Dry in the sun and store in glass jars.

The potent laxatives has its potent effects even after the performed process.

You should consume the herbal bean with precaution.

The powerful laxative can cause painful abdominal cramps.

Some people experience a burning mouth sensation.

Also, dizziness and vomiting.

This herbal bean is not recommended for humans.

It is most unsafe and definitely not an appropriate intake for any one with constipation issues.

I therefore do not recommend you taking Jamalgota.

The reason for writing about Jamalgota is from my personal research and discussions of the herbal bean.

I needed to know more about this potent herb.

Purified or unpurified, it does work out as well for everyone.

You need to consider your weight and should be used according to that of your weight.

Sometimes one bean when crushed into powder form can have a drastic workout on your tummy.

Should you use Jamalgota for hair loss?

No.

The side effects are most painful.

I knew of someone who applied the crushed powder in paste form on their scalp.

This thought for the regrowth of hair on that patch. Unfortunately that did experiment did not go well.

Blisters formed on the scalp and that was a painful and most irritable experience. The person was in agony. It took a long time to heal after medical treatment.

In another case, a teenager who used the crushed seeds in the same way and applied it on his scalp to prevent hair loss.

He wished he never tried it!

The application of the paste caused hurting, stinging and spots formed. These spots grew into blisters.

Have you tried using the Jamalgota bean to treat constipation?

Did you learn from this hub about the Jamalgota herbal plant?

Did you have an idea of this poisonous plant before reading this hub?

The winter fruit from the Jamalgota are the most at that time of year.

Jamalgota is not used for medicinal purposes due to the painful issues experienced by many individuals.

The natives of the Amazon use the croton oil as liquid bandage.

Herbs and spices is used to treat many ailments. People use it as alternative medicine some agree, and disagree of these choices.

Used in cooking, and for your daily requirements.

The history of herbs started centuries ago and it is best to learn more about any herb before use.

Those who suffer from severe constipation always seek medical help before using Jamalgota bean. You can change your diet for better results.

Each individual has a different dose and would affect each person in a different way.

I don't recommend you use this herbal bean for any aliment.

Pharmacist don't recommend jamalgota.

One seed of the croton toglium can be harmful to you. This can allow for dehydration and severe diarrhea.

Also, new information to me, that Jamalgota bean is added to the making of the Vermouth liquor.

Four seeds of Jamalgota can kill a human certainly sounds deadly.

If taken it is best you consult an expert.

In oil form or powder form it can be harmful if not taken with proper precaution.

People suffer the consequences when not taken in proper doses.

However, I don't think I would consume the Jamalgota herbal bean.

Thorough research and with expert guidance is a safe way to go ahead with any herbal experiments.

      I had never heard of this plant before. People should always be careful with any remedy. Just because something is "natural" does not mean it is safe.
