What Is Organic Mimosa Pudica?

  • Mimosa pudica is an herb that’s been used in traditional Ayurvedic medicine for centuries.
  • Powdered Mimosa pudica plant seeds can bind parasites, toxins, and other unwanted materials in your gut.
  • Mimosa pudica seed powder mixes with digestive fluids to form a sticky gut-grabbing and gut-scrubbing gel.
  • Scientists have confirmed the powerful benefits of Mimosa pudica extracts as an excellent antiparasitic tool. 

Mimosa pudica, also known as lajjalu in ancient Ayurvedic practice, has been used for centuries to treat coughs, indigestion, jaundice, and skin disorders.

It is most prevalently found in warm regions of the world, including Australia, India, and Central and South America. (1)

The plant is also nicknamed the Sensitive Plant, Shame Plant, or Touch-Me-Not plant. Its leaves are incredibly sensitive to the environment and fold up at night or when handled — an intelligent defense mechanism to protect itself from harm.

Though Ayurvedic medicine has used parts of the plant for quite some time, it’s only recently been shown how effective the plant’s seeds can be for binding to parasites, toxins, and debris in your gut.

Mimosa pudica seed is very gelatinous, meaning when it mixes with water or digestive fluids, it becomes jelly-like and sticky.

When ingested in a veggie capsule, it is easily broken down by your body. Once the powdered seed mixes with watery fluids in your gut, it becomes a gelatinous, sticky, gut-scrubber and gut-grabber. It grabs and scrubs out unwanted materials, while sparing the good bacteria and the integrity of your intestinal lining.

As it forms a gel, it also expands, gently scrubbing the sides of your intestines. As it does, it may pull out heavy metals, parasites, toxins, and other invaders that are attached to your intestinal walls. It is also useful in clearing out intestinal buildup resulting from years of digestive processing. 

It’s this gut-grabbing property that makes Mimosa pudica seed so beneficial when used in protocols that call for digestive tract detoxification and parasite removal. Scientists have demonstrated the powerful benefits of Mimosa pudica extracts as an excellent antiparasitic tool. (2, 3)
