Plant Family: Family: Sterculiaceae; Genus: Cola Specie(s): C. nitida; C. acuminata; C. millenii; [ Note: "It was in the family Malvaceae, subfamily Sterculioideae, and was later transferred into the separate family Sterculiaceae"[8] ( Cola ballayi, Cola verticillata, and Cola sphaerocarpa are often also utilized[8] )


Common nicknames(Varieties/Strains): Kola nut; Cola nut; Yoruba: obi, Dagbani: guli, Hausa: goro, Igbo: ọjị, Sängö: gôro, Swahili: mukezu[1] [ Strains: C. nitida; C. acuminata; C millenii; ]


Parts Used: The "Nut", or "pods".; The traditional method of consumption is to chew it. This is how it is done in many West African cultures, whether individually or in a groups[8]. It is often used ceremonially, presented to tribal chiefs or to guests as well[8] I've studied shamanic cultures for many years, and can tell you that usually when something is used ceremonially, it is a psychedelic or poison, but in this case the botanical in question is neither. This is very unusual to me, but in some instances plants such as Kola are utilized in ceremonies.

Leaf: One scholarly source reported that "the leaves of Cola millenii were used in the treatment of ringworm, scabies, gonorrhoea, dysentery and opthalmia"[8] I've never even seen anyone sell the leaf. On that note, I want to point out that just because a specific part of a plant is used, popular, or the only part sold, doesn't mean that it's the only part of the plant that's useful. Several other plants are like this, and off the top of my head I can list a few: Sassafras bark is the most popular part of the tree, but the leaf is also used. Cannabis buds are the most popular part of the plant, but the leaves and seeds can also be used. This pattern continues in nature. Silene capensis flowers are useful, and the leaves, but you can only find the root for sale. On that Note, I want to encourage everyone to buy seeds, start a garden, and strive for independence from money, corporations, and government. I support small businesses with this blog, and those that provide services that oppose fortune-500 financial slavery. Socialism seeks to financially enslave us all, so seek God and independence from their leadership.

The whole plant: "The leaves, twigs, flowers, fruit follicles and the bark of Cola nitida and Cola acuminata are used to prepare a tonic as a remedy for dysentery, coughs, diarrhoea, vomiting and chest complaints"[8] Keep this in mind if you're an entrepaneur, or store owner. Be original, and provide something different to the public instead of just copying everyone else. I notice that even reading about these botanicals online renders very little original information. There's a whole lot of paraphrasing going on. I'm here to bring new facts to the mainstream. These facts are not necessarily new, but the ideas trending and spreading into the mainstream will be new.


Occult Warning: While most people who use Kola nut are doing so for health reasons, in traditional African Shamanism(witchcraft), it was used for divination and necromancy(both forbidden in Deuteronomy 18) I just wanted to give everyone a heads up on that and also note that: When African Shamans used Kola nut for these forbidden occult pratices, they did not consume it, rather they tossed the nut down on the ground, and interpreteted the messages based on how the pieces landed. There are plenty of health shops across the US and planet for that matter, that sell this product. It's prized for its health benefits, and is used in herbalism across the globe. "It is used during ceremonies related to marriage, child naming, installation of chief’s, funerals and sacrifices made to the various gods of African pynology"[8] God didn't make it to be used in unGodly ways. Make sure you don't buy it from a witchcraft shop. Note that plenty of health stores sell it, so it isn't one of those items that's strictly "shamanic". Herbalism is Christian medicine, and it was pagans that perverted herbal medicine. Modern pharmaceutical medicine is modern witchcraft. It's better to play it safe than sorry, but in my opinion there's nothing wrong with Kola nut when used as a herbal medicine. I can't warn enough against shamanism, because it is sorcery, and it is idolatry. Sorcery is defined as: The administration of drugs, medicines, and poisons, in association with idolatry[other gods] and the magical arts.


Native Habitat: Tropical Rain-forest Of West Africa[1][2][7];


Properties/Medicinal Benefits: Anti-bacterial[2][8], Anti-oxidant[2] One academic source states that: "Extracts of the kola nut were effective against the pathogens at 50, 100, and 200 mg/mL concentrations."[2] This is a very common finding when scientist study these medicinal plants in the lab. Serpent medical and the powers that be are covering it up from the public, and gaslighting us. The FDA and other dis-honest money hungry evil-doers are policing truth, and herding sheep into down-playing scientific facts regarding the miraculous healing properties of these God-given seed bearing herbs. Chewing kola nut can ease hunger pangs[8] Stimulant, Euphoriant[8] Studies on the herbs properties against bacteria have been done in the lab. "Antibacterial screening was done using agar well diffusion method against odontopathogens; (Lactobacillus sp., Corynebacterium haemolyticum, Proteus vulgans, Bacillus lentus, Streptococcus anginosus and Pseudomonas aeruginosa) obtained from stock cultures"[7] Then another source that I cite discusses this again: "Their antibacterial activities are due to flavonoids especially biflavonoid type GB1 (Hong-xi and Song, 2001) and this has been demonstrated using methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus(MRSA), vancomycin- resistant enterococci (VRE) (Han et al., 2005), Lactobacillus spp. (Owoseni and Ogunnusi, 2006) and Streptococcuspyogenese(Ogbulieet al., 2007). Afolabiet al., 2008) has shown its antibacterial effects on Streptococcus mutans" FYI It's talking about cavities when it mentions streptococcus mutans. Kratom, Cacao, Green tea, and Kola are all good for your teeth. You can dip it like chewing tobacco for a topical way to fight cavities directly. Aphrodisiac[8] The caffine behaves as a bronchodilator, expanding the bronchial air passages[8] Studies show that Kola nut has analeptic and lipolytic properties, which stimulate the secretion of gastric juices[8] Anti-diabetic[12] One study states: " Treatment with Cola. nitida extracts resulted in a significant depletion of diabetes-derived lipid metabolites, the generation of fatty esters and steroids, and the deactivation of diabetes-related pathways. As a result, the plant may have therapeutic effects in diabetes by increasing insulin production and lowering apoptosis, increasing pancreatic b-cell proliferation, modulating glucose metabolism, and decreasing muscle inflammation. Furthermore, C. nitida has the potential to be employed as a functional food and nutraceutical in the treatment and management of diabetes and its related complications."[12]


Useful for: Herbal remedy; Making your own DIY Soda's and/or beverages; Industrial use: The pod husk has been used to make soap[8] They're traditionally used in the treatment of malaria and fever[8] Teeth health supplement; Fatigue, energy, stimulation; It makes a great healthy flavor additive in the culinary arts. It can be useful as a medicine for fighting the common cold and or flu as well.


Works well with: Sassafras!, Green tea, Cacao, Kratom, and Guarana. All of those plants that I just mentioned, contain the same phytochemicals ( maybe not all, but a lot ). They all contain: ECGC. Cacao, green tea, and kola nut all contain Caffeine, and theobromine. I add some mullein leaf and aloe to anything that has caffeine in it, or anything that may promote acidity in my stomach. Those two herbs combat ulcers.

What is phytochemistry: Phytochemistry is something that most people don't seem to be aware of. There seems to be this lie floating around that there's no science to back up how herbal remedies could work, but this is merely a lie. Phytochemistry is the science behind the pharmacology of these ancient remedies, and it has shown us proof that they do work. All modern medicine is either a direct isolate of phytochemicals from plants ( like morphine, and CBD ), or they are build off the design of these natural miraculous wonders. God is the only real doctor, and these chemist are just posers. They're climbing the tree of the knowledge of good and evil... The one with the serpent on the ambulance tied to it.. Each plant produces a wide range of medicines... They are essentially little pharmaceutical companies, except they work for free, and do as God intended them to do.


Phytochemicals: The nut contains about 2-4% caffeine and theobromine(also found in Cacao[chocolate], and also the more common: tannins, alkaloids, saponins, and flavonoids[1][2][7] The nut also contains: phenolic compounds, steroids, volatile oil, balsams, quercetin, coumarin, and keamferol[7] It also contains: phenolic compounds, including biflavonoids (GB-1,GB-2), xanthones, and benzophenones[8] More chemical constituents produced by this plant include: theophylline phenolics, phlobaphens, epicatechin(ECGC), D-atechin, tannic acid, sugar, cellulose.[8]

My goal here is to list as many of the phytochemicals produced by the botanical of topic as possible, from as many scholarly sources as possible. I want this page to be one concise resource on herbal remedies, and the science behind their benefits.

All of these are documented on academic databases like PubChem and Google Scholar. I link to them at the bottom of every page. [ Note this is not all of them that exist within the plant, and I never claim to cover every one of them. I try to get as many as possible listed though. ]


ECGC(Epicatechin): I did an entire blog on ECGC(Epicatechin) and how it is good for your teeth. It's also found in Green tea, Chocolate, and Kratom.


Theobromine: This phytochemical is one of many that exist in more than one plant. Interestingly, plants in the same family seem to share some of the same chemicals. This isn't always the case however. Theobromine is a pharmacological medicine, drug, or chemical (however you choose to label it ) that exist in: Green Tea, Dark Chocolate, and Kola Nut. You can legally buy pure theobromine online. Personally, I would much rather use the God-made herbs that produce it, than going the isolate pharmaceutical route. Herbs are like little pharmacies, while isolates(aka a free-base) is just one substance, by itself... Theobromine is less potent than Caffeine, but essentially the same thing, a natural stimulant. It has vasodialating properties(widens blood vessels)[15]. "Theobromine is used principally to make caffeine (McCutheon, 1969). Formerly, theobromine and its derivatives were used in diuretics, myocardial stimulants, vasodilators and smooth muscle relaxants"[13] So, it can be used to create synthetic caffeine as well, which is probably going on... I wouldn't doubt that soda companies are using synthetic caffeine made by big drug companies right now in their drinks... Keep in mind that this is just one of many pharmacological components of Kola nut. Each individual component has a range of medicinal benefits, all proven in the lab under clinical settings. "Theobromine is useful in asthma and in other respiratory tract problems such as cough for which no definitive drug has been developed."[14]


Quick Investigative Note: Many times on my blogs I mention that ancient occult alchemist(Egyptians and freemasons), utilized the ashes of plants in their chemistry preparations. An academic source that I quote confirms this once again, "Color, aroma, texture, flavor, total ash, water soluble ash, and moisture were evaluated"[3] Plant salts are stored in the ashes of a lot of plants(not sure if it is all of them)[3][4][5][6]. Crystals(pure phytochemicals) can be free-based out of the ashes using nothing but water and alcohol[3][4][5][6] Anyone who prepares their own medicine at home can keep this in mind. There's more to medicine preparation than just making tea's and tinctures. Tinctures can even be evaporated to create a syrup, that has a higher potency due to concentration. I've also observed that it is great after a hang-over.


Warnings: If anyone is not supposed to consume acidic foods like coffee, tea, alcohol, and anything sugary, then likewise you should also avoid Kola Nut. Due to the caffeine, and high acidity, it is likely to disagree with you as well. Do not go over-board with this stuff, as it contains Caffeine. Caffeine is not as safe as people think, and should be avoided by anyone with heart problems. It's the easiest way on the planet to avoid a heart attack. A credible academic source that I cite states: "Kola nut has stimulant effects on the central nervous system and heart"[8] One academic source states (after comparing Kola to green tea, and cacao[chocolate]): "Kola nut produces a stronger state of euphoria and wellbeing (Benjamin et al., 1991)."[8] Because of the plants analeptic and lipolytic properties, it can stimulate the secretion of gastric juices, which is a possible reason to avoid it in excess by those who suffer from ulcers[8]

Summary In my own words, Kola nut is similar to Chocolate, Green Tea, Kratom, Guarana, and the-like. It contains theobromine and caffeine just like most of the other ones mentioned previously. It's sold in health shops across the US today as an herbal supplement. Despite the fact that it was used in an occult way by traditional African Shamans, it is widely popular outside of the occult, for ordinary things, such as health and wellness. Most of the shops that sell it are not promoting witchcraft, but I want to make sure there are no secrets so I am revealing this. Kola nut was also the original source of flavor in Coca cola, and combined with the coca leaf(the plant that produces cocaine), it was an amazing beverage I'm sure. Because of corporate greed, foolishness, and big companies going where the money's at, the famous Coca cola drink was eventually down-graded to a fake and less healthy beverage. Sobe used to sell herbal drinks as well, and then one day I went to buy a sobe green tea and noticed the Echinacea was missing from the label... It seems fortune 500 doesn't like keeping people healthy.


By purchasing stuff like Kola nut, and more exotic supplements from across the globe, you help to hurt socialist run businesses. The socialist hate free trade, especially international trade. I want to encourage everyone thinking of starting a business to do so! I share plenty of wholesale connections on this blog to help you get started. All you need to sell herbs online is a tax ID, and it is free. You can get it from the IRS on their website. Register with the IRS for a free TAX ID so you can start your legal business today! It's called a sole propriatorship. I am sorry that I am going on this wild rant and a little off-subject. Because this stuff comes from Africa, I want to see more of it come into the USA. Please support a wide range of small businesses folks. Socialist are out trying to destroy entrepaneurs. They sabotaged my last project, and now I seek to back up the American people and help them make more money with this fantastic and informative project where I both expose pharmaceutical deception, defend Gods seed bearing herbs, expose the occult, and help non-fortune 500 entrepaneurs survive in a world that's becoming more and more filled with hate, sabotage, and posery.


Ezekiel 47:12 "And by the river upon the bank thereof, on this side and on that side, shall grow all trees for meat, whose leaf shall not fade, neither shall the fruit thereof be consumed: it shall bring forth new fruit according to his months, because their waters they issued out of the sanctuary: and the fruit thereof shall be for meat, and the leaf thereof for medicine."


Preparations: Because of the variations in phytochemicals among different parts of the plants, medicine men and women often utilize specific parts of the plant, or different methods in extracting the medicine from them. A study that I cite even discusses how different solvents yield different phytochemicals in the extraction process, as well as greatly varying amounts of these substances.[8] After everything has been pulled out of the dried plant material using grain alcohol, the remaining plant material can be burned, and then filtered through grain alcohol again. In ancient alchemy this was called "calcination", but one can remove all the cooky pagan crap from the practice. Basic chemistry can be utilized to make herbal preparations, using nothing but water, alcohol, and dried plant material. Just remember that after every tincture has been made, there are phytochemical goodies left over in the remaining plant material. Even the most potent of alcohol can not extract everything... After all, the plant material still remains after the extraction does it not? Therefore, not everything has disolved into the alcohol. According to the book "Marijuana Medicine", the ashes of Cannabis for example, contain thcv and thca. I had to throw this book away because of all the pagan stuff in it, but that fact stands. Shamans also utilized ashes of different plants often in the preparation of shamanic medicines as well.[9][10][11]


How To Grow Kola Nut

I am a Christian, and am all about giving. I want to support entrepaneurs across the country that are not in fortune-500 gangs, or supremacy cults. I want to suppor the humble and righteous only. I am linking to this shop: UrbanTropicals.com Kola Nut as a form of giving. I would imagine that this plant is going to be more difficult to grow than many, as it is a tree I do believe.
