How is Sananga administered?

Sananga is administered as eye drops. Sananga treatment engenders an intense burning sensation that typically lasts for only a few minutes. Those receiving Sananga are instructed to lay back and close their eyes. One drop of Sananga is placed in the corner of each eye. Once placed, the receiver is advised to open their eyes to receive the medicine.

What are the benefits of Sananga?

Due to its anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties, Sananga is known as an effective treatment for optic nerve disorders such as glaucoma and astigmatism. Sananga’s benefits include antimicrobial, antifungal, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and anti-cancer properties.

  • Antimicrobial: Studies from 1984 and 2002 show that the species T. pachysiphon and T. angulata have antimicrobial properties effective against a variety of bacteria. The bacteria species targeted include Staphylococcus aureus, which can cause skin infections and respiratory infections, and Pseudomonas aeruginosa, a notoriously drug-resistant bacteria linked to pneumonia, sepsis, and eye infections in people who wear contact lenses.  

  • Antifungal: A 2009 study showed that extracts of T. stapfiana was effective against a variety of fungi species, including Candida albicans, a yeast that can cause thrush in the mouth and yeast infections in the vagina. While Candida infections are typically easy to treat, the fungus poses risk to people with compromised immune systems.

  • Antioxidant: The Tabernaemontana genus also has strong antioxidant properties. While nutritional antioxidants are widely known for their value in maintaining general health, ongoing research also suggests  antioxidants could play a critical role in preventing age-related ocular problems like cataracts and macular degeneration.

  • Anti-cancer: Studies dating back to 1977 have shown promising results that Tabernaemontana species could help combat cancer. The African species T. elegans was shown to be particularly effective at killing cancer cells.

  • Anti-inflammatory: A 2003 study showed that T. pandacaqui had fever-reducing and anti-inflammatory qualities.
