Rauwolfia Vomitoria

Ayurvedic Herb used for Millennia that’s backed by Today’s Scientific Research

The generic name Rauwolfia is named after the 16th century German physician, Leonhart Rauvolf, who traveled the world collecting and documenting medicinal plants. The word “vomitoria” refers to the purgative and emetic properties of the bark. Known as “Sarpagandha,” Rauwolfia has been known for millennia in India as one of the very important Ayurvedic herbs. Traditionally, paste of its roots, mixed with rose water, have been used as a form of ayurvedic medicine to help alleviate stress, giddiness and induce sleep. The herb has also been used to help with snake bites, insect stings, nervous disorders, epilepsy, psoriasis, excessive sweating, itching and hypertension.

The main alkaloid present in Rauwolfia, called reserpine, was first discovered by scientists Schiller and Muller of CIB Pharmaceuticals in Switzerland in 1952. Reserpine was a major constituent of antihypertensive drugs. Alstonine, another β-carboline alkaloid also present in Rauwolfia, although in lesser quantity,has been isolated and studied since 1952.

Removal of Reserpine, the Beljanski® Know-How

While working at the Pasteur Institute in Paris, Dr. Mirko Beljanski created a test, the “Oncotest”, which allowed him to identify the carcinogenic or toxic potential of different molecules often present in our daily surroundings.

Using his Oncotest, Dr. Beljanski was able to discover that while reserpine is potentially carcinogenic, alstonine exhibits opposite properties. Dr. Beljanski noted that once reserpine was removed from the Rauwolfia vomitoria extract, the extract had very low toxicity and no hypertensive effect. The extract only had beneficial health effects, promoting healthy cell regulation.

This led Dr. Beljanski to perfect a Rauwolfia vomitoria extract standardized in alstonine, but WITHOUT reserpine.

Toxicity studies were conducted, confirming the safety of the extract. Dr. Beljanski’s extract has been safely sold in the USA since 1997 under the name Rovol V®.

The Beljanski Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to studying the health benefits of natural compounds, has furthered the work of Dr. Beljanski and funded research with several academic institutions on Rauwolfia vomitoria. Their findings showcase the benefits of the extract to support prostate, ovarian and pancreatic health.

Rauwolfia Vomitoria - Fair Trade, Sustainability and Responsible Development

Maison Beljanski proudly provides The Beljanski Foundation all the botanical extracts needed for its research programs. Maison Beljanski sources powerful, natural botanicals through fair trade and sustainable practices. Fair trade provides people from developing countries proper working conditions and a way out of poverty. Rauwolfia vomitoria roots are harvested annually by cutting them 10 cm from the taproot, allowing for fair-trade commercialization of this traditional remedy. Regular exports lift people out of poverty, give them a reason to value their natural surroundings and make them want to develop the economic prospects their environment has to offer.

Providing Rauwolfia Vomitoria and More for
Scientific Research Programs

Maison Beljanski is grateful for the opportunity to support The Beljanski Foundation by providing it with all the botanical extracts needed for its many research programs. Over the years Maison Beljanski has provided Pao pereira, Rauwolfia vomitoria, Ginkgo Biloba extracts, Teas and RNA fragments used by The Beljanski Foundation for scientific research. Maison Beljanski heartfully endorses The Beljanski Foundation’s overall mission to study and share knowledge of natural solutions to help support health and wellness. Every research program is designed as a continuation of Dr. Beljanski’s scientific breakthroughs regarding the role of environmental toxins in the onset of disease.

Just Released Study:
Good News for Prostate Health

Rauwolfia vomitoria extract suppresses benign prostatic hyperplasia by inducing autophagic apoptosis through endoplasmic reticulum stress.

In Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH), a chronic inflammation that causes prostate enlargement, Rauwolfia vomitoria extract triggers persistent autophagy that leads to death of BPH cells by apoptosis. The result is that BPH cells are removed from the body.

Normally, cells maintain homeostasis by recycling their proteins and organelles using a process called autophagy—literally “self-digestion”. Autophagy promotes the survival of cells that contain defective proteins or structures: the recovered components can be reused to make healthy proteins and structures.

In BPH, Rauwolfia extract induces an extension of the self-digestion process called autophagic apoptosis, which ends in BPH cell death. For the serious inflammation in Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia, induction of autophagic apoptosis is just what the doctor ordered and Rauwolfia extract does it!

Rauwolfia extract is likely to trigger this mechanism in precancerous inflammations in other hormonally regulated tissues such as breast.

This new research, from Dr. Jun Yan laboratory in China and funded by The Beljanski Foundation, was published in the prestigious journal BMC Complementary Medicine and Therapies

Columbia University published its results, both on Pao pereira and on Rauwolfia vomitoria, demonstrating the efficacy, as well as the safety, of both plant extracts and confirming the claims my father originally made. It also meant that the extracts, now made in America according to Beljanski’s specific methodology, were just as good as those originally made in France during my father’s time. My father was gone, but his know-how had survived. The destructive wrath of the French government was no match for the truth! Just like that, Beljanski’s legacy was now ready to take root and flourish in a new land.

And isn't America dubbed the land of second chances?
