Acacias: The Genus Acacia (sensu lato) is an evidence-based treatment of this super genus, through the eyes of a clinical pharmacognosist and integrative medicine specialist. The book begins with antiviral activity, revealing within the five genera of Acacia s.l., pharmacological properties and pharmacologically active compounds. Profiles of prominent species within these genera, including photographs, accompany the narrative of current research and traditional usage into antibacterial, antifungal, anticancer, antidiabetic, metabolic syndrome ameliorative, and psychotherapeutic potential. Features: Comprehensive treatment of the entire Acacia sensu lato genus. Aids ethnopharmacological prospectors of new sources of novel botanically-based medicines for modern metabolic and psychiatric diseases. Illuminates the presence of psychedelic simple substituted tryptamines in trees and their medical and psychotherapeutic potential. Acacias: The Genus Acacia (sensu lato) provides a unique and comprehensive coverage of one of the most interesting and diverse genera of trees, firmly entrenched in the Levant, Africa, Australia, the Far East, and the New World. The influence of these genera on pharmacy and industry (especially through gum arabic, wildcrafted in Africa from Senigallia senigallia), human consciousness, the advent and development of religions, planetary ecology, botanical therapeutics, and the emergence of psychedelic medicine reflects both the history of our species and the transformative promise of tomorrow.
