Gumby Gumby - The Medicinal Tea from the Outback

The Ancient Medicinal Drink of the Aboriginals

We at Ancient Purity would like to introduce you to an Australian tree which is a significant part of the Aboriginal People’s Bush Medicine, gaining more and more popularity across Australia and throughout the globe. This species, Pittosporum Phylliraeoides, is mostly known as Gumby Gumby or Gumbi Gumbi. It is a small tree or shrub with little star-shaped yellow flowers and yellow/orange skinned fruit, Gumby Gumby (pittosprum angustifolium) is found across Australia’s drier areas and is most-likely the most potent, yet versatile indigenous herbal medicine. The trees can grow up to 7-8 metres in height. Since ancient times the Aboriginals and Torres Strait Island people strongly believe in Gumby Gumby and its health-improving powers. They used various remedies such as wild herbs, seeds and plants, animal products, mud, steam baths, massages, ritual chants and amulets. 

Some of these ancient remedies have "no scientific basis" but colonists’ reports claimed that they functioned. Several of those remedies did truly heal. Seeds, aromatic herbs, tannin-rich barks and kinos have well-reported therapeutic effects. For example, Eucalyptus produces a gum known as Kino which is used by Aboriginals in a hot tea for helping to get rid of colds. Other floral species definitely harboured alkaloids or other compounds providing pronounced health-improving properties. Unfortunately, just a few remedies have been tested systematically, and most of the Aboriginal People’s knowledge about natural medicine has been lost. Now teams of researchers around the globe are looking into native plants and Aboriginal medicine as an alternative to medical modern treatments and remedies. There are various tests with promising results so far. Some results were published and others still remain unpublished due to on-going research with final results pending.

Gumby Gumby - Harvested Correctly & Sustainably

Ancient Purity makes sure that harvesting and treating the trees with respect and selective pruning with gentle harvesting practices ensures that the trees are sustainable for future generations using their cultural heritage techniques. This provides protection and health of the wild trees. The Gumby Gumby Tea Leaves are naturally cool-dried, keeping their efficacy, retaining the highest natural traditional health benefits as well as ensuring essential nutrition. All ingredients in this tea are native plants sourced from businesses run by indigenous Australians. 

The Aboriginal people have very long past of living off the earth by harvesting their bush products. Like numerous other cultural traditions, all have their own way of harvesting edible wild flora. Today, more and more people starting to recognise the full range of applications consumable wild plants, such as Gumby Gumby, have when harvested and appropriately taken care of. Other names for this species include Native Apricot, Cumbi Cumbi, Gumpi Gumpi, Cumpii Cumpii, Weeping Pittosporum, Meemeei, Cattle Bush, Bitter bush, and Butter Bush.

Gumby Gumby - Health Knowledge & Modern Research

As Always modern science has to play catch up to nature and ancient knowledge. Of course we still live in a time where research is controlled and funding limited with unpatentable natural products. But still tests and research have proven that Gumby Gumby contains Flavonoids, Saponins and Tannins. Saponins provide numerous health benefits. Researches have shown the beneficial health effects on bone health, blood cholesterol levels, malicious cells, bone health and on our immune system.  Some of the properties attributed to Tannins and Flavonoids feature: Antioxidant, Anti-allergic, Anti-Inflammatory and Antiviral. In recent years Tannins have also been researched for their potential effects against malicious cells through different mechanisms. Gumby Gumby Tea seems to have the following actions: Antipruritic, Antispasmodic, Detoxifying and Galactagogue (A substance that promotes lactation in humans), and it has shown to stimulate the blood circulation, regulation of blood pressure and boosting our immune systems.

Research and studies on Gumby Gumby Leaves have been done already and is currently underway by reputable universities and other relevant scientific institutions, to validate the claims already known to be true by the users of the tea. The University of Greifswald Research Centre in Berlin, Germany has done an investigation and you can read the promising results of their research here. There’re  private research teams of certified naturopaths as well, Gumby Gumby cultivators, holistic health practitioners and supporters of alternative medicines who are performing studies with the aid of Australian and European universities, through discussing the species with Aboriginal elders, and by sifting through huge amounts of anecdotal proof, offline and online. One Australian team from Queensland has spent more than 5 years researching this unique plant. They drove thousands of miles and collected different kinds of Gumby Gumby from the wild. Now they’re in the process of breeding specimens Gumby Gumby and researching to make sure that "farmed" Gumby Gumby has similar health benefits as that of the plant grown in the bush.
