Akuamma Seeds (Picralima Nitida) | 0.3%+ Akuammine – Seeds, 100g
Akuamma seeds contain a complex mixture of alkaloids producing potentially antipyretic and antiinflammatory effects along with analgesia. Several of these were shown to bind to opioid receptors in vitro, and two compounds, akuammidine and ψ-akuammigine, were found to be μ-opioid agonists. More recently, it has been shown that an additional constitutive analog, acuammicine, has potent activity as a kappa opioid receptor agonist.
