Amazon Botany Lab Project

Amazon Botany Lab Air View

In April 2022 we launched our experimental Amazon Botany Lab project in order to research the properties of medicinal plants in the Amazon

The Amazon Botany Lab project is strongly focused on the purpose of social utility and good. The project has been funded in the prestartup phase – research and problem solving. The second phase, which will coincide with the commercialization of the Antarctic token, will consist of the identification and acquisition of a nature reserve in the Amazon of 2-3 thousand hectares of virgin forest so that the Botany Lab project can be developed independently of governments. An investment of $200-300 thousand is estimated for this phase; the third phase will be the financing of the business plan; in the fourth phase the project will be developed in situ with the construction of the laboratory and campus. Finally, the fifth phase will be devoted to the implementation of agreements with researchers and/or universities and the commercialization of the project. The central idea behind our participatory funding system is to be circular, that is, for each partnership, participated in by the Antarctic Foundation, leading to the launch of a product, service, registration of a patent or license, resulting in profits; these profits will go into the Antarctic Foundation’s reserve to be applied to future projects.

Medicinal Plants of the Amazon

An project on medicinal plants of the Amazon can be developed in the Offshore World reserve, which has 2,100 hectares of rainforest.

There are 2100 hectares of Amazon rainforest available for medicinal plants of the Amazon or a didactic or tourism project in the Offshore World reserve. It will also be possible to develop summer university campuses, research laboratories on Amazonian medicinal plants, ecotourism, etc.

The medicinal plants of the Amazon are especially rich in species. The Amazon is the most biodiversity area of the planet and Offshore World Inc. maintains a reserve of 2100 hectares of virgin rainforest. The reserve is located in the municipality of Labrea, Amazonas, Brazil and is bordered by two branches of the Labrea River.

In this rainforest, there are many plants that have medicinal properties and the environment is suitable for Amazonian medicinal plant research.

The native peoples have used them for centuries to cure or prevent all kinds of diseases. Today, scientists continue to study these plants in an effort to turn them into effective and marketable medicines.

What medicinal plants can be found in the Amazon?

Green medicine” or “natural medicine” generates controversy. Many still consider it a “pseudoscience”. However, more and more scientists are studying how native peoples used herbs, fruits and medicinal plants to both cure and prevent disease.

Among the most widely used medicinal plants of the Amazon is the sinini, known in other parts of Latin America as guanabana or graviola. The leaves of this plant are used to reduce stomach pain and control blood sugar levels. In addition, it has properties that help the healing of wounds.

Another medicinal plant with great tradition in the Amazon is sacha garlic. The natives macerate its leaves with brandy. Then they use them to soothe pain related to rheumatism and arthritis.

One of the Amazonian medicinal plants with the most diverse uses is the elderberry. This plant has several properties, so it is commonly used against colds, as a laxative and as a diuretic.

On-site laboratory to take advantage of ancestral medicine experts

The indigenous people of the Amazon have Achira among their favorite medicinal plants. They take its fresh leaves and use them as a healing agent for infected wounds. In addition, they also use the roots of this plant as a diuretic.

The existence of such a wide diversity of medicinal plants on land in the Brazilian Amazon represents a great opportunity. The owners of these lands can develop projects with university campuses and pharmaceutical research laboratories.

These centers are constantly looking for new options to develop medicines. So-called “green medicine” is a field that, at present, has not yet been fully explored, so it is possible to come up with discoveries that leave significant profits for the parties involved.

If your organization is interested in developing a Botany Lab project on Amazonian medicinal plants, university summer campuses, Amazonian medicinal plant research laboratories, ecotourism, or other, do not hesitate to contact us.
