Mimosa Pudica, also known as the “sensitive plant” or “shy plant” is a perennial flowering plant related to legumes which is unique in that its leaves fold inward and droop when touched before reopening a few minutes later. The herb has a long history of use in traditional Ayrurvedic medicine for a wide variety of ailments.
When ingested, extracts of the seeds of Mimosa Pudica have been found to produce a sticky gel which latches onto toxins, heavy metals, parasites, and harmful bacteria as it passes through the digestive tract. This is believed to be the mechanism through which it supports digestive, intestinal, and immune system function.
Mimosa Pudica Extracts can vary in strength so the specific dosage recommended will depend on the strength of the extract being used and the purpose for which it is being taken.
For our 10:1 extract used as a supplement for digestive, intestinal, or immune system support we recommend a dosage of two 500 mg capsules per day for a total daily dose of 1000 mg. A more agressive dose of between 2000 mg - 3000 mg per day can also be taken if desired, but its not recommended to exceed 3000 mg per day.
Mimosa Pudica Extract works best when taken on an empty stomach, ideally at least 1 hour before a meal.
Mimosa Pudica Extract is well tolerated and side effects are rare when used at normal doses. The most common side effects of Mimosa Extract are GI discomfort and constipation.
Mimosa Pudica has been shown to have anti-fertility properties in women, so should not be used by women who are pregnant, breastfeeding, or are trying to become pregnant.
