Scientifically, Kambo enters the lymphatic system, waking up the body's natural ability to heal itself on a cellular level. After Kambo, people often see massive energetic shifts in their lives, from dramatic improvements in physical healing, to reductions in depression and addictions, to relief from chronic pain, major illnesses and more.


An Italian scientist, Vittorio Erspamer, of the University of Rome was the first to analyze Kambo in the lab.  Vittorio Erspamer was twice nominated for a nobel prize and was also responsible for first discovering the well known neurotransmitter Serotonin.   Erspamer concluded that Kambo contains a ‘fantastic chemical cocktail with potential medical applications, unequalled by any other amphibian’.  His findings brought great attention to the area of peptides which have since become very important to the medical field.

Peptides are a fundamental part of nature, found in animals and humans alike. They're comprised of amino acids - the building blocks of life - just like proteins are. 

The common factor that distinguishes a peptide from a protein, are the amount of amino acids that bond together. Peptides are comprised of shorter chains of amino acids. Proteins are comprised of longer chains of amino acids, roughly 50 or more.

Enzymes can break down proteins back into shorter peptides through digestion, where the body can decide whether its most beneficial to use these peptides or excrete them.

Depending on the amino acids involved, peptides can perform many different biological functions in the body. Some perform antimicrobial, hormonal, and neuro activities, providing support to vital cellular processes and functions within the bod


The peptides discovered by Erspamer {in Kambo} trigger a variety of beneficial chemical reactions in the human body.  Kambo has the ability, unlike many other natural and pharmaceutical substances, to cross the blood-brain barrier, enabling it to reach deep into the body and bring support to otherwise difficult to treat areas.  Human cells open up to the beneficial properties of Kambo unlike many substances that are filtered and eliminated by the body’s highly intelligent defense system. Thus far, researchers have discovered nine peptides, some of which are bio-active – meaning that they perform specific functions in the body. These peptides perform hormone-like tasks while others provide support to vital cellular processes.  Some of these peptides have a potent effect on the gastrointestinal muscles, gastric and pancreatic secretions, blood circulation, and on the stimulation of the adrenal cortex and pituitary gland.   Many peptides have since been isolated from the Kambo secretion and have been synthesized.  As a testament to their medicinal properties, there are over 70 Kambo patents lodged, mainly in the USA.


Kambo also contains certain neuropeptides that are small, protein-like molecules used by the neurons to communicate with each other.  These neuronal signaling molecules are involved in a wide range of brain functions including:

  • analgesia
  • reward
  • food intake
  • metabolism
  • reproduction
  • social behaviors
  • learning
  • memory.


The bioactive peptides and neuropeptides present in Kambo cover a wide range of potential medical uses including:

  • depression
  • migraines
  • blood circulation problems
  • vascular insufficiency
  • organ diseases
  • skin and eyes issues
  • fertility problems
  • AID’s
  • hepatitis
  • cancer
  • brain diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s


Several years of research conducted at the University of Paris have shown the peptide Dermaseptin B2 to be very effective at killing certain types of cancer cells.  Research at Queens University in Belfast recently won a prestigious award for their ground breaking work with cancer and Kambo. Here is a link to some of the research on the Dermaseptin B2:


Ongoing research on peptides, Kambo’s main components, continues to evolve and find medical applications in the world of medicine and pharmacology.
