What is Stameta?
Stametta is a South African herbal liquid medicine sold off the counters in shops and pharmacies in the country. It is designed to assist in promoting or supporting the functions of the stomach and intestines and for short-term use in cases of occasional constipation. Stametta is also believed to strengthen the immune system and relieve various conditions. These include menstruation, lower back and joint pain, fatigue, gum disorders, sexual performance, flatulence, digestive problems and constipation. It can also strengthen bones and muscle tissue.
Stametta has aloe vera as one of the ingredients. People have used it for thousands of years for healing and softening the skin. Aloe has also long been a folk treatment for many maladies, including constipation and skin disorders. Modern-day research into aloe vera’s benefits is mixed, with some evidence showing it can cause cancer in lab animals. Each 500 ml of Stametta contains: Aloe 1,667 g; Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C) 1,667 g; Aniseed Oil (Pimpinella Ansium) 0.817 g; Magenesium Sulphate 71,667 g; Preservative: Nipastat 0,02% m/v.
