WHAT IS JAMALGOTA? CROTON TIGLIUM: A POWERFUL LAXATIVE AND BIO - FUEL

JAMALGOTA, CROTON TIGLIUM AND JATROPHA CURCA(S)
Jamalgota is the Urdu name for the medicine from the two plants, Croton tiglium and Jatropha curca or curcas. The crushed leaves of jamalgota, Croton tiglium, are mainly used as a laxative for very persistent constipation, and are one of the most potent laxatives known to man. Croton tiglium is native to Pakistan, India, New Guinea, Indonesia and China and grow wild all over the Philippines. Traditional healers use this plant for many purposes, but they have knowledge which the layman does not have and know the doses and mixtures which make plants health giving rather than deadly. Four seeds of Croton tiglium can kill an adult, and 15 will kill a horse. These hakims or healers use the plant for treating gastroenteritis, throat problems, for abortions, eczema and mastitis. Applied externally, the crushed leaves which are the laxative part of the plant are applied to snake bites. The oil from jamalgota contains an insecticide and is a skin irritant.
   The oil from Jatropha Curcas is used to get rid of cancerous skin growths. However it can also contribute to them. The latex from this plant contains the alkaloid jatrophine which is being investigated for its possible anti-cancer properties. It is applied on the skin to cure various diseases and as a treatment for rheumatism. The twigs from the plant are used to clean the teeth, and the root juice to treat piles. The roots of Jatropha curcas are used to treat snake bites. The bark produces a dark-blue dye. The tusser silkworm is rather partial to its leaves, apparently. The fruit and wood from this tree is used as fuel.
      The oil cannot be used as a food until it goes through an expensive detoxification process so it is an ideal candidate for making bio-fuel. It was used in Madagascar, Benin and Cape Verde as fuel during the Second World War. Now it is cultivated as an oil crop in South America and elsewhere, and the by-products can be made into high quality paper, soap, cosmetics, toothpaste and embalming fluid. It can also be found in cough medicines and is used as a moistener in tobacco. After the oil has been extracted the seed cake can also be used as fertilizer. Because the seed contains 25-30% oil, and the kernel between 50 and 60% oil it makes the plant ideal for producing bio-fuel. It is an oleic-linoleic oil as it consists of 42.8% oleic acid and 32.8% linoleic acid. There are plans to cultivate the plants in Pakistan for bio-fuel as exporting and using it domestically would be very beneficial to the economy.

  5. If you want information about planting jatropha you need to go to this site: - www.jatrophabiodiesel.org for information. Did you know that you can plant the seeds between other vegetable plants? You can also use waste ground for planting these seeds, ie use land which you can't use for other plants. Good Luck!

  6. One Jamal bean, crushed and sprinkled on food, wil make a person very queezy, and probably cause some shitting. Two beans should cause some good shitting for a day or two. I once gave four beans to a guy who had been annoying me, and he shat so much and so violently that he ended up in hospital and had 2 inch piles cut out of his asshole.

    1. You should grind the seeds to a powder before you use them and try one first to see what effect it has. It depends on your age and weight as to the amount you will need. When you take them make sure the loo is vacant! A pinch of the powder might well be sufficient.

  12. No there isn't it's too powerful. You can crush the seeds to a powder and mix it in food,people tend not to notice, but don't use too much!Put in sweet paan with the betel nut and mix it in small pieces- one or two small pieces are more than enough.

  15. how do you reverse the effects

  16. What you saying abbas, Iv heard if you snort it, the effects are much quicker is this true? and yesterday we ground up 2 beans and put them in my Bhai's coffee and he has been on the toilet for 10 hours, do you know when this will stop? walakumsalam

    ReplyDelete
  17. You really shouldn't try to snort the beans, they won't have any effects - it affects the stomach, not the brain.2 beans is a lot to give one person.Half a bean can affect someone for 6 hours so you work it out.
    This is really irresponsible as people can get very weak after such an episode.
    Now go and buy him 6 bananas and he should eat them all in one sitting.He should also take isphagol with them.

  19. It's psychological probably, a question of mind over matter. You need to have yourself examined by a doctor in case there is a physical problem. Try gond katira.

I have met quite a few psoriasis patients who have shared with me some valuable hints and tips on how to reduce flare ups, and also how to treat their skin when it does become problematic. The first steps to take if you have psoriasis are to understand what triggers your skin to flare up, and then what to do with your skin during a such a flare-up.Chinese Eczema Cream
