Here’s the “rest of the best” benefits that mimosa pudica can offer you and your microbiome:It’s an antimicrobial. Microbes are organisms that cannot be seen by the human eye. Our bodies are full of them; some are vital for our health and well-being, and some, like viruses, fungi, and certain strains of bacteria, are harmful. (Pawaskar)
Mimosa Pudica is effective for wound-healing.Mimosa Pudica has been used for centuries for stopping bleeding and for wound-healing of rashes and skin diseases. In 2009, a study was done to test the effectiveness of this ancient herbal remedy. Mimosa Pudica was used at different concentrations on cuts, then studying the hydroxyproline (a component of collagen, which keeps skin elastic and young-looking) and ability of the skin to be stretched without breaking or bleeding. The results with 2% Mimosa Pudica concentration were very successful in healing skin wounds quickly, likely because of the polyphenols and antioxidants in the plant. This could prove to be an effective, natural treatment for anyone with health conditions causing slow wound healing, like diabetes. (Kokane)
It has anti-ulcer and healing properties.Peptic ulcers are internal sores on the digestive tract, usually located on the stomach lining, esophagus, or the upper part of the small intestine. Frequently, ulcers can be infested with harmful bacteria like H. pylori. Anyone who consumes pain medication, especially naproxen sodium (like Aleve) and ibuprofen (like Motrin) are at greater risk for stomach ulcers, which can cause bloody stools, vomiting blood, dizziness, shortness of breath, and other symptoms. Because ulcers thrive in an environment with high gastric acid and low mucosal integrity, Mimosa Pudica’s gelatinous makeup can be very helpful in healing these uncomfortable ulcers. Conventional medicine now is not always effective against ulcers, and can often cause a relapse of symptoms, as well as unwanted additional health concerns like heart arrythmias, tumor-like growths, or enlargement of male breast tissue. With a small dose of Mimosa Pudica, per studies, ulcers were improved nearly 67% as compared to control groups. Other notable changes with Mimosa Pudica administration included less redness and more balanced pH, acidity, and volume of gastric juices. (Elango)
