Tepezcohuite




Tepezcohuite (pronounced Te-pez-Co-wheete) (Mimosa tenuiflorais) a tree bark from Mexico. Also known in Mexico as the "Skin tree", some of the bark’s significant attributed properties are an anti-microbial agent, an analgesic agent, and a cellular regenerator.

An extract of Tepezcohuite contains Flavonoids that diminish the capillary permeability and increases its resistance and protects from skin aging, Tannins which have an astringent action and smooth skin, as well as other micronutrients such as zinc, copper, manganese, iron and magnesium. These play an important role in cellular repair and protection.

Extensive research has been performed in labs in Mexico, Canada and the United Kingdom. They have found that tepezcohuite is a cellular regenerator, an anti-bacterial 300% more effective than streptomycin, and a powerful fungicide.[citation needed]

Uses for Tepezcohuite

Not all of these uses have been experimentally verfied as useful or safe. Consult a doctor before taking any kind of medication.

Tepezcohuite is considered to be an antiseptic, analgesic and promotor of cellular regeneration. It has also been shown to have a strong effect on peristalsis in animals. [1]

Burns

Tepezcohuite may protect first and second-degree burns, helping to prevent the loss of fluids. It also may prevent the formation of cheloidal scars and help regenerates hair follicles.[citation needed]

Traumatology

For traumatic injuries, tepezcohuite is believed to protect exposed bone and help regenerate soft tissue. It is also an antiseptic; however, studies indicate that it is no more effective than current antiseptics, and it may also have toxic effects on the liver. [2]

Dermatology

Tepezcohuite may prevent wrinkles and acne, as well as treat psoriasis, herpes I and herpes II, and treat chickenpox scars.[citation needed]

Cosmetology

In addition to the above effects, tepezcohuite may protect and stimulate the generation of collagen and "elastina", as well as protecting flavonoids and hyaluronic acid.[citation needed]
