Chilcuague a very personal experience
Known as the Root of Gold to certain native communities across Central and South America, the Helipsis longipes plant has been cultivated and appreciated for its potential in dealing with skin infections, buccal issues, and in the improvement of the digestive and respiratory systems’ health..
This medicinal root that comes from a gorgeous wildflower is quite unique, and referred to as Chilcuague by the Mexican peoples that have made use of its properties since pre-hispanic eras. The plant itself can be found mainly around the Sierra Gorda area, in the highlands of Mexico, and there are records that show its use spanning from a culinary condiment all the way to an antiparasitic agent.
The main benefits associated both traditionally and medically to Chilcuague are analgesic, anesthetic, anti-ulcerative, and antibiotic effects. Academic research and studies conducted by health professionals have concluded, too, that the extract of this plant contains, primarily, an alkamide called affinin (spilanthol), which is a plant bioactive that promotes anti-inflammatory action.
