Spatholobus Littoralis Hassk is called "Bajakah" in Indonesia. It is a plant that, according to traditional users in Asia, has a positive effect on health.
According to the Indonesian Institute of Sciences (LIPI), Spatholobus Littoralis Hassk (hereinafter referred to as "Bajakah") contains a high content of antioxidants that capture free radicals. Free radicals can in some cases cause damage to cells and tissues. According to the Netherlands Nutrition Center, antioxidants protect tissues and DNA against free radicals. The antioxidant content of Bajakah is said to be thousands of times higher than other types of plants.
On July 25, 2019, three students from the Palangkaraya Senior High School SMAN 2 (Central Kalimantan) won an international Life Science competition in Seoul, South Korea. In their research, Bajakah was used to cure cancer in rats. Bajakah was successfully researched for wound healing in rats in 2018 and researched for antibacterial activities in 2019.
According to the Lambung Mangkurat University (Banjarmasin, Indonesia), the plant contains 40 substances that can kill cancer cells in the body. These substances include saponins, phenols, stereides, terpenoids, tannins, alkonoids and terpenoids. There are also tannins, flavonoids and other healthy phytochomic compounds such as steroids. Phythochemicals or Phythonutrients maximize the immune system, meet vitamin A needs, kill cancer cells, repair damaged DNA structures and detoxify carcinogenic compounds.
Bajakah was traditionally used by the Dayak tribes. Dayak is a collection of a number of peoples on the island of Borneo. They use Bajakah as a traditional medicine against cancer. The stories of the Dayak show that this plant has been used since time immemorial. It is anecdotal evidence, but often successful. Striking are the stories about fighting breast cancer through this Bajakah tea. This has contributed to a great deal of attention being paid to this herb in recent years.
In addition to S. Littoralis, seven related species of the genus Spatholobus have been described: S. acuminatus, S. ferrugineus, S. gyrocarpus, S. harmandii, S. parviflorus, S. pottingeri and S. suberectus. It is striking that these plants are also used elsewhere in the world for equal health reasons.
Our own research has shown that certain parts of the Bajakah plant are rich in the right flavonoids and other healthy phytochomic compounds. We have conducted tests based on this knowledge to see which parts of the plant are most suitable for use. Our range of this herb contains only those parts of the plant where these healthy substances are more numerous, which therefore leads to a better functioning of the herb.
The origin of the herb is the area where the Dayak tribes themselves also collect their herbs, the natural forests of central Kalimantan. The region where the herbs are harvested is free of pesticides. It is therefore a purely natural product. Naturally, harvesting is sustainable without disturbing the local environment and ecology.
The Dayak people used Bajkah in the form of a tea. For this, the dried plant parts are boiled in a layer of water. About 2 grams (large teaspoon) of herb is used per cup of water. This is allowed to boil gently for 20 minutes, possibly with a little lemon added. This is poured through the strainer and the tea is ready. This can be flavored with sugar, honey or a little cinnamon. For clarity, Bajakah is not a spice to be consumed, only the tea is used!
