There are many medicinal brazilian Herbs, so I'm here to show some of them and if any one had any doubts we can begin any discussion about it.

Pilocarpus jaborandi is an integral part of Brazilian folk medicine. Caboclos (non-Indian jungle residents) and Indians prepare a tea with its leaves and drink it as a diuretic or to induce sweat. Diabetics and asthma sufferers use it as expectorant and stimulant via an infusion made with the powdered leaves. Arthritis and pleurisy—a lung inflammation—have also been treated with jaborandi. And when applied to the scalp, a potion made with the leaves is believed to prevent baldness. Merck Laboratory has marketed a product made from jaborandi called Policarpina, which is used in the treatment of glaucoma.

Some of Brazilian People try to do some medicional herb combination.


It is already open, if any one be intersted.
