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.

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