Summary
Mulungu is famous for its effects on inflammation, muscle relaxation, pain relief, and anxiety. It has been used as both a medicinal and a tonic by indigenous tribes in the Amazon rainforests, and its traditional history matches its modern use. Mulungu's pharmacology suggests that it works through both the nicotinic acetylcholine and the GABAnergic systems.
