Background: Before we tell you about the jaborandi hair oil benefits, let’s give you some run down of the plant and its history. Jaborandi is native to central and South America and has had a long history as a medicinal plant in the rainforest herbal pharmacopeia. It’s a shrubby tree with smooth grey bark, purple-red flowers and large leathery leaves which grows about to three to seven meters in height. In commercial and herbal medicine, several plants belonging to the Pilocarpus species are interchangeably called Jaborandi. The Tupi Indians are credited with this word and it means “what causes slobbering” in their native language. It is also known by names like Jamgurandi, Arruda Bravam, Juarandi, Pilocarpus Jaborandi among others
Uses: The Jaborandi plant leaves are a rich source of alkaloid compounds which are present as tiny dots on its surface. This alkaloid is commercially produced as pilocarpine which is FDA approved prescription medication. And pilocarpine is popularly used in eye drops for treating glaucoma, and as tablets in treating dry mouth (due to radiation), dry eyes, for hair loss as topical application etc. The Brazilians use jaborandi herbal tea for its benefit as a diuretic and perspiration inducing properties (glandular stimulant) and is popular in their traditional folk medicine. Lately it has been discovered as a tool for the diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease in early stages since the eye constriction response of Alzheimer's patients to pilocarpine is pronounced.
