Since its appearance, the Indians have already explored its medicinal properties: they used it as an antidote to various poisons, in addition to treating mouth ulcers with jaborandi. Many years have passed, and with so much buzz around the plant and what it can really do, several studies were carried out on jaborandi, which is now used as tea, in addition to complementing skin and hair care products.
The main medicinal properties contained in jaborandi are:
- For hair, the plant is anti-hair loss;
- Cardiac depressant;
- Hair strand growth stimulant;

The jaborandi plant is highly rich in a substance called pilocarpine, which is responsible for stimulating hair growth and preventing hair loss. Many use it directly on the hair, but the treatment with its tea is also efficient in providing the same effects and acting on the scalp.
