The West-African variety of Sorghum bicolor leaf sheath (SBLS) Jobelyn® is a natural remedy that has gained recognition for its blood boosting qualities. The widespread use of Jobelyn® in our region actually confirms its safety. The other major pharmacological properties have been suggested after isolation and characterization of the active compounds in this specie of sorghum showing various subclasses of flavonoids etc. Sorghum bicolor possesses several biologically active compounds with potent antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-aging and neuro-protective properties. Studies also show that SBLS has the ability to boost hemoglobin concentrations in anemic conditions and increase CD4 count in HIV-positive patients.

Clinical efficacy of a West African sorghum bicolor-based traditional herbal preparation Jobelyn shows increased hemoglobin and CD4+ T-lymphocyte counts in HIV-positive patients https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3904510/ 

Jobelyn was recently listed in the drug dictionary of the National Cancer Institute and described as:

An herbal-based nutritional supplement containing the leaf sheaths of the plant Sorghum bicolor, with potential antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, chemopreventive and immunomodulating activities. Sorghum bicolor supplement contains various phytochemicals, including phenolic acids and polyphenols such as proanthocyanidins. Sorghum bicolor supplement is particularly rich in 3-deoxyanthocyanins, such as luteolinidin and apigeninidin, and appears to induce apoptosis and inhibit cell proliferation in cancer cells through the stimulation of various apoptosis promoter genes and the downregulation of certain apoptosis inhibitor genes. In addition, due to the strong antioxidant nature of the phytochemicals, these compounds are able to scavenge free radicals and prevent tissue damage. Also, intake of this supplement modulates the immune system by both increasing the activity of natural killer (NK) cells and initiating the activation of macrophages. https://www.cancer.gov/publications/dictionaries/cancer-drug/def/sorghum-bicolor-supplement

 

The multiple effects and high safety profiles of this extract may encourage its development as a therapeutic agent for the potential treatment of other conditions. This link contains a partial list of the published scientific studies done on Jobelyn:

CASE STUDY REPORT – AUGUST 29 – SEPTEMBER 14 2021

We have been giving COVID-19 positive patients Jobelyn® and they turn PCR test negative within 7 days. The latest patient, a 26 year old Filipino lady tested positive for COVID-19 on August 29, 2021 after showing some classical signs and symptoms including loss of sense of smell (First test result attached).

 

POSITIVE LABORATORY RESULT ON AUG. 29 2021

INITIAL LABORATORY RESULT SHOWING POSITIVE ON AUG. 29 2021

 

We sent Jobelyn® to her and she took it from September 5 for 7 days. On September 13, another deep throat and nasal swab were taken and COVID-19 PCR test done. Behold a negative result was obtained (second test result attached) as has been the case in all previous cases.

NEGATIVE RESULT ON SEPT 14 2021

2ND REPORT SHOWING NEGATIVE RESULT ON SEPT 14 2021

 

In a related development, a young lady who tested positive on December 30, 2021 was placed on Jobelyn capsules, 5 capsules emptied into hot water, 3 times daily for 6 days and she tested negative on January 8 2022.

The mechanism of action may be due to the high Poly phenols / antioxidant content of Jobelyn® as well as its immune modulatory effects as seen in the increase of NK cells, T lymphocytes and CD4 counts.

Concentration of five polyphenol marker compounds in  two product lots used for  two clinical studies

Trial Lot number Unit Apigeninidin Luteolinidin Apigenin Luteolin Naringenin
Trial 1 06-4812 μg/g 38,650 323 6020 585 230
Trial 2 09-0590 μg/g 47,380 890 6460 673 166

The quantification of these five polyphenol marker compounds was evaluated by the highly sensitive LC/MS-MS methodology, and their structures were confirmed by CAD-MS/MS analysis. The testing was performed by Brunswick Laboratories, Norton, MA.

With the exception of Cloves and dried Peppermint,  which are seasonings, it has the highest polyphenolic content among the food plants.  Pérez-Jiménez, J., Neveu, V., Vos, F. et al. Identification of the 100 richest dietary sources of polyphenols: an application of the Phenol-Explorer database. Eur J Clin Nutr 64, S112–S120 (2010).

From our experience we believe Jobelyn® should be given to all COVID 19 patients and a randomized study conducted on the potential benefits of Jobelyn® on eradicating COVID- 19 virus from the body.
