Traditionally chuchuhuasi is used to relieve pain and inflammation (Chuchuhuasi means "trembling back", indicating its long standing use for back pain), to restore vigor, and for relieving menstrual pain and enhancing libido. It may also balance adrenal function. Chuchuhuasi is pretty close to an all-in-one remedy. Chuchuhuasi contains a variety of naturally-occurring compounds, including the alkaloids mayteine and maytansine. The bark is rich in several alkaloids, tannins, triterpenes and sesquiterpenes. The protein kinase C (PKC)-inhibiting agents in chuchuhuasi have been studied by Sphinx Phatmaceuticals of Durham, NC. PKC is implicated in many chronic degenerative disorders.
