ECHINACEA Purpurea HERB C/S  ORG             

ECHINACEA Purpurea Herb Powder  ORG       

ECHINACEA Purpurea Herb PWD  wc               

 

ECHINACEA Purpurea ROOT C/S                        

ECHINACEA Purpurea ROOT PWD                     

Echinacea is herbal medicines first choice of treatment for colds & flu, & is primary to treating infections of the respiratory system.   Stimulating the immune system, the herbs can also be used to treat chronic yeast infections in women & to prevent urinary tract infections in both sexes.  It helps immunity & can be a treatment for abscesses & skin problems. It’s used to treat chronic fatigue syndrome, urinary tract infections, & even helps to prevent aging.  What’s so special about this plant? Research shows that it is antiviral, antibacterial, antifungal, anti-inflammatory, & contains properties that actually help to build new white blood cells. In other words, it fights all kinds of germs & it improves your body’s natural immunity to foreign invaders.   Echinacea is available in many forms including capsules, tablets, ointments, tinctures, and teas. Most people take it in form of capsules or powders when they’re working to fight off an infection. While there’s no cure for the common cold, echinacea is one herb that helps to prevent it and reduce the amount of down time you’ll experience from the virus.  The roots and the whole plant are considered particularly beneficial in the treatment of sores, wounds, burns etc, possessing cortisone-like and antibacterial activity. To date the Echinacea angustfolia is presumed to be more effective than the purpurea or pallida. Precautions:  Use with caution if you are allergic to ragweed 


• Echinacea (Echinacea angustifolia), is effective if taken during the early stage of a cold or the flu. Echinacea is not an antibiotic; it does not kill germs. Instead, it works by stimulating the production of white blood cells, accelerating their maturation within the lymphatic tissue, and speeding their travel to the area of infection, where they help fight the invaders.

ELDER BERRIES WHOLE           

 Helps treat and prevent colds and flu      Source of flavonoids for antioxidant support

 Boosts immunity and helps fight viruses

The real claim to fame of Elderberry is as a flu cure - known to be effective against 8 strains of influenza & arthritis. The berries are commonly used for their antioxidant qualities & are a good source of Vitamins A & C.  Extensive research show that elder stop the production of hormone-like cytokines that direct a class of white blood cells known as neutrophils to cause inflammation, especially in influenza and arthritis. On the other hand, elder increases the production non-inflammatory infection-fighting cytokines as much as 10 fold. Elder berries are known to be effective against eight strains of influenza. This suggests that elder be superior to vaccines in preventing flu, because flu vaccines are only effective against known strains of flu, whereas the virus is continually mutating to new strains. Vaccines have another draw back: over half of people who get them report side effects. Dr. Madeleine Mumcuoglu, of Hadassah-Hebrew University in Israel found that elderberry disarms the enzyme viruses use to penetrate healthy cells in the lining of the nose and throat. Taken before infection, it prevents infection. Taken after infection, it prevents spread of the virus through the respiratory tract. In a clinical trial, 20% of study subjects reported significant improvement within 24 hours, 70% by 48 hours, and 90% claimed complete cure in three days. In contrast, subjects receiving the placebo required 6 days to recover.  Precautions: None for flowers or berries, however excessive use may cause nausea and vomiting in some individuals.



ELDER FLOWERS  WHOLE                

Elderflower is the flower of a tree. An extract of the flower is used to make medicine.

Elderflower is used for swollen
sinuses (sinusitis), colds, influenza (flu), swine flu, bronchitis, diabetes, and constipation. It is also used to increase urine production (as a diuretic), to increase sweating (as a diaphoretic), and to stop bleeding.

Elderflower is also used as a gargle and mouthwash for
coughs, colds, hoarseness (laryngitis), flu, and shortness of breath. It is used on the skin for joint pain (rheumatism), and pain and swelling (inflammation).

Some people put elderflower in the
eyes for red eyes.

In combination with gentian root, verbena, cowslip flower, and sorrel, elderflower is used for maintaining healthy
sinuses and treating sinusitis.

In foods and beverages, elderflower is used as a flavoring component.

In manufacturing, elderflower extracts are used in perfumes. Elderflower water is used in
eye and skin lotions.

ELDERFLOWER Side Effects & Safety

Elderflower is LIKELY SAFE when used in amounts found in foods. Elderflower is POSSIBLY SAFE for most people when used in small amounts as part of a combination product containing elderflower, sorrel, gentian root, verbena, and cowslip flower (SinuComp, Sinupret). There isn't enough information to know if elderflower is safe when used in medicinal amounts other than as part of the combination product. The combination product can cause digestive system upset and occasionally allergic skin rash.

Elderflower is POSSIBLY UNSAFE when used in excessive amounts. Some parts of the elderflower plant contain a cyanide-producing chemical which can cause nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. Cooking removes this chemical.

Not enough is known about the safety of applying elderflower directly to the skin.


Special Precautions & Warnings:

Pregnancy and breast-feeding: There is not enough reliable information about the safety of taking elderflower if you are pregnant or breast-feeding. Stay on the safe side and avoid use.

Diabetes: There is a concern that elderflower might lower blood sugar levels. If taken with diabetes medications, it might make blood sugar levels go too low. If you have diabetes and use elderflower, be sure to monitor your blood sugar levels carefully. Check with your healthcare provider to see if the dose of diabetes medications you are taking needs to be lowered.

Surgery: Elderflower might lower blood sugar levels. There is some concern that it might interfere with blood sugar control during and after surgery. Stop using elderflower at least 2 weeks before a scheduled surgery.

Moderate Interaction Be cautious with this combination

  • Medications for diabetes (Antidiabetes drugs) interacts with ELDERFLOWER

    Elderflower can decrease blood sugar levels. Diabetes medications are also used to lower blood sugar. Taking elderflower along with diabetes medications might cause your blood sugar to be too low. Monitor your blood sugar closely. The dose of your diabetes medication might need to be changed.

    Some medications used for diabetes include glimepiride (Amaryl), glyburide (DiaBeta, Glynase PresTab, Micronase), insulin, pioglitazone (Actos), rosiglitazone (Avandia), chlorpropamide (Diabinese), glipizide (Glucotrol), tolbutamide (Orinase), and others.

    ELEUTHERO ROOT C/S        (also called Siberian Ginseng       

    ELEUTHERO ROOT POWDER  (also called Siberian Ginseng     


      Supports healthy energy levels.     Great for athletes

      Helpful for fatigue, stress and mental exhaustion.

      Immune system function       Potent adaptogenic properties.


    --Also known as: Eleutherococcus senticosus, (Formerly known as Siberian Ginseng,) a name banned in the United States by the Ginseng Labeling Act of 2002) Acanthopanax senticosus, Ci Wu Jia, Devil's Bush, Devil's Shrub, Eleuthera, Eleuthero, Eleutherococc, Eleutherococci radix, Eleutherococcus senticosus, Ginseng Root, Hedera senticosa, Pepperbrush, Prickly Eleutherococc, Shigoka, Touch-Me-Not, Ussuri, Ussurian Thorny, Wild Pepper, Wu Jia Pi.    

    Eleuthero is an "adaptogen," an agent that helps the body address to stress. Scientists believe it helps prevent "adrenal burnout" caused by ongoing physical or mental challenges. Eleuthero boosts concentration and focus without the letdown than comes from drinking coffee or other sources of caffeine. Eleuthero also boosts immunity. Healthy people taking 2 teaspoons (10 ml) of tincture three times daily have been shown to have increased numbers of the immune cells (CD4+ cells) that have decrease during HIV-infection and AIDS. Eleuthero may also enhance athletic performance. Eleuthero was a favorite of trainers and coaches of Olympic athletes in the old Soviet Union. When the word about eleuthero got out, Western scientists put it to the test. A study of six baseball players found that taking eleuthero for 8 days increased breathing capacity. That is, eleuthero gave the players more wind to sprint between bases. In another clinical test, scientists in Australia found that men (and women) who took eleuthero 8 weeks had 13% strength gains in the pectoral muscles and 15% in the biceps. And a company in New Jersey found that taking eleuthero for 8 weeks increased the body's ability to burn fat through exercise by about 43%. The scientists running these tests recruited experienced athletes. The benefits of this readily available herb are even more noticeable in beginning athletes. Just be sure to take the herb for at least 8 weeks for best results. Combining eleuthero with other herbs can be even better. Soviet scientists found taking both schisandra and eleuthero benefited endurance athletes by giving them an immune system boost. The two herbs together helped prevent colds, flu, and other infections after athletic events. Eleuthero is not the only herb for athletes. American trainers report a combination of sea buckthorn, wild oats, and stinging nettle increases strength, anaerobic power (muscle output when the athlete is out of breath), endurance time, and even feelings of well being. For best results, increase the vitamin C foods in your diet when you take these herbs.   Precautions:  May cause insomnia if taken too close to bedtime. Not recommended for persons with uncontrolled high blood pressure.

     Introduction: Eleuthero is a woodland plant native to southeastern Siberia and the Korean peninsula, and adapted to the damp forests of British Columbia, Washington, Oregon, and northern California. A relative of the more famous red ginseng, eleuthero has been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine since about 190 AD. It became a widely cultivated herb after its use as an adaptogen (an herb that helps the body adapt to stress) was discovered by a Soviet scientist named Brekhman in the 1940's. It was dispensed to entire cities in Siberia for 10 weeks in early winter to prevent colds and flu, and used as a treatment for radiation exposure after the Chernobyl accident.   

    Constituents:  Eleutherosides B and E, and immunostimulant complex polysaccharides.  

    Parts Used:  The dried root.   Typical Preparations:  Encapsulated root, tea, or tincture, may be added to juices or smoothies.



    EUCALYPTUS LEAF C/S             

    Eucalyptus oil acts on nerve receptors in the mucosa of the nose and sinuses in a way that causes release of mucus. In laboratory studies, eucalyptol (the main essential oil in the herb) is antibacterial against several strains of Streptococcus, the organism that causes strep throat. A combination of eucalyptus and mint may help relieve snoring.  Precautions:  Never take eucalyptus oil internally. For safety, use eucalyptus leaf teas and steams rather than the oil. Excessive use may cause gastro-intestinal upset.   Introduction:  The eucalyptus is an evergreen tree native to Australia but naturalized to California and the Mediterranean countries. Its leathery blue-green leaves are studded with glands containing a fragrant, volatile oil. There are many species of eucalyptus trees, but the most pleasant-smelling oil is produced by Eucalyptus globulus. In the early nineteenth century, the crew of an Australian freighter developed intractable fevers they were able to cure with eucalyptus tree. Eucalyptus became well known in Europe as the Australian fever tree. American physicians used eucalyptus oil to sterilize surgical instruments and incisions, and also as a steam inhalation for asthma, bronchitis, colds and flu, emphysema, and whooping cough.

    Constituents:  The major volatile oil in eucalyptus leaf is eucalyptol, also known as 1,8-cineol. This compound is found in many other herbs in concentrations of 1 to 5%, but makes up about 70% of eucalyptus oil.   Parts Used:  The leaf, its volatile oils released by steam.  

    Typical Preparations
    Facial or hydro-steams, aromatherapy, and teas. Some uses may include encapsulation or extracts, however we have found these to be rare. 
     


    EYEBRIGHT HERB C/S

    FENNEL SEED WHOLE  CO      Turkey  

    FENNEL SEED WHOLE wc        Morocco 

    FENNEL SEED POWDER wc      Egypt


     Aids digestion        reduces gas and heaviness after large meals 

     Safe for infants and children to relieve indigestion       Pleasant licorice aroma

    Fennel seed is antiseptic and secretolytic, that is, encouraging secretion of saliva and gastric juices. It also stops stomach cramps, often added to laxatives to ensure gentle action. Fennel seed teas break up congestion caused by colds and allergies. There are preliminary studies that suggest that regular consumption of fennel (as well as regular consumption of green beans, mushrooms, oranges, prunes, and celeriac) might slow the progression of osteoporosis. Fennel seed powder has almost exactly the same taste and medicinal effect as whole fennel seed, except it tends to lose anethole. Powdering makes fennel a less estrogenic herb, that is, less likely to stimulate the production of estrogen in women, a characteristic that may be desirable or undesirable depending on the user.
    Precautions:  Fennel seed teas are helpful for colicky infants, but fennel seed oil should never be given to infants or young children because of the danger of spasms of the throat.   
     


    FEVERFEW HERB  C/S  CO           

    FEVERFEW HERB  C/S  wc           

    FEVERFEW HERB POWDER wc     


     Traditionally used to relieve and prevent migraines     Supports blood vessel tone

    A TEA BLEND OF LINDEN, FEVERFEW, LEMON BALM AND CHAMOMILE WILL REDUCE 'MIGRAINE' PAIN BY 50-60 % for most sufferers.  

    PROVEN TO WORK!  I use it and so do some customers of mine.  Use equal portions of each herb, and steep tea 4-6 minutes. Drink 2 - 3 cups and you should see some results in a short while. 


    According to traditional use, taking feverfew can help prevent migraine headaches, but the effects are usually not noticed for several weeks and vary among individual migraine sufferers. The herb has shown to be helpful for migraine sufferers who also have allergies or asthma. Feverfew has gained a good reputation as a medicinal herb and extensive research since 1970 has proved it to be of special benefit in the treatment of certain types of migraine headaches and rheumatism. The leaves and flowering heads are anti-inflammatory, antispasmodic, aperient, bitter, carminative, emmenagogue, sedative, stimulant, stings, stomachic, vasodilator and vermifuge. The plant is gathered as it comes into flower and can be dried for later use. Use with caution, the fresh leaves can cause dermatitis and mouth ulcers if consumed. A tea made from the whole plant is used in the treatment of arthritis, colds, fevers etc. It is said to be sedative and to regulate menses.

    Precautions: Avoid feverfew if you are allergic to ragweed, daisies, chamomile, chrysanthemums, or yarrow. Not to be used while pregnant.


    FENUGREEK SEEDS WHOLE  CO        

    FENUGREEK SEED POWDER  wc            

     Soothes the stomach and intestines   Helps break up congestion

    May help regulate blood sugar levels

     In the nineteenth century, Arab physicians would prepare a paste of fenugreek seeds soaked in water as a food for diabetics. Research in the 1990's found that adding an extract equivalent to 1-3 tablespoons of fenugreek seeds to the daily diet of diabetics significantly lowered blood sugars, HbA1C, triglycerides, and total cholesterol while raising HDL ("good") cholesterol?but most North Americans, Australians, and Europeans would find the bitter taste difficult. Encapsulated forms are most easily tolerated. Poultices of fenugreek seeds are a traditional remedy for furuncles, boils, and eczema. Currently, its major use in the US is in imitation maple syrups. The German E commission currently lists it as a way to stimulate the appetite.
    Precautions:  If you wish to use fenugreek to lower blood sugars, it is better to use the powder rather than the whole seed. The powder releases more vanadium as it is digested. Avoid fenugreek if you are allergic to chickpeas, and Fenugreek should not be taken medicinally when pregnant, however moderate use in food should be fine.

    Fenugreek, also known as Greek hay, Greek clover, bird's foot and a variety of other names, is an herb in the pea family. The genus name for this plant refers to the tri-angled shape of its amber-colored seed.

    Powdered fenugreek seed is used in Indian cuisine to enhance the flavor of curries and other foods.

    India is the largest producer of fenugreek seed, followed by Iran, Egypt, Turkey, and Morocco.

    The whole seeds, which are often roasted to reduce bitterness, are used in Middle Eastern cuisine to flavor bean dishes called daals. The seeds are also sprouted to produce young greens sold at market in bunches as Samudra Methi


    GALANGAL ROOT C/S                    


    --Galangal root is a bitter used to stimulate the release of gastric juices to assist digestion. It relieves bloating, constipation, sluggish digestion, and gas. Although galangal root helps the intestine process fats, one of the chemicals in the herb, 5-hydroxy-7-(4'-hydroxy-3'-methoxyphenyl)-1-phenyl-3-heptanone (HPH), has been shown to lower bloodstream cholesterol in laboratory investigation. According to the German E Commission, galangal can be used for dyspepsia and loss of appetite, and is also considered to be antispasmodic and antibacterial.   Precautions:  Galangal root inhibits the release and action of pancreatic lipase, so don't take both galangal and digestive enzymes.
    Also known as:  Alpinia officinarum, Alpinia galangal, galanga, lesser galangal, Chinese ginger, Chewing John, and Little John.    Introduction:  Galangal is an East Asian tropical shrub with lance-like leaves, iris-like flowers, and reddish brown, woody rhizomes. It grows mainly in the Eastern Himalayas and Southwest India, and was introduced to Europe in the 9th century. Saint Hildegard of Bingen (1098-1179 C.E.) referred to galangal as the spice of life and used it in many of her formulas. The name galangal is derived from the Arabic khalanjan, referring to Chinese ginger, whose family it is a member of. Galangal is an important herb in Saudi herbal medicine. Traditional Chinese Medicine uses galangal in formulas for the "spleen" to treat digestive problems and health conditions relating to a lack of the earth element, or difficulties in leading a "grounded" life. Various formulas feature galangal for treating "rebellious qi," in which energies that should go down in the body try to come up, as hiccups, belches, burps, and regurgitation.    Constituents:  Primarily 1,8-cineol, eugenol, tannins. Also contains careneole, pinene, cadimene, galangin, kaempferide, kaempferol, quercetin, isorhamnetin, and galangol.    Parts Used:  The rhizome, washed, dried and cut.    Typical Preparations:  Teas and extracts. Added to aloe to reduce aloe's harsh laxative effect. The chopped root can be added to culinary dishes and the powdered herb is more convenient for making tinctures, but tincture should be used within 1 year of purchase. May also be taken as a tea, extract or capsule.

    GENTIAN ROOT POWDER                     

    If you’re suffering from loss of appetite due to an illness, gentian may be exactly what you need to keep your appetite stimulated. You may also find that it can be useful if you have an upset stomach or even intestinal illness such as diarrhea and cramping. When your liver isn’t functioning at full par, you can also count on gentian to help detoxify the body and stimulate the liver.

    If you have a fever, gentian can help to lower it and give you relief and comfort. In addition, gentian can also be used to treat anemia by stimulating red blood cell production. This is particularly good for someone suffering from a low red blood cell count. Gentian can help restore energy and vitality.

    Gentian is thought to work so well because it is a bitter herb that stimulates the nervous system to produce saliva and gastric juices. This in turn actually helps to stimulate the appetite. It also promotes the normal function of the digestive system. When everything is moving properly, you’ll have fewer complaints.

    You can take gentian several ways. It can be used as an infusion or a tincture, depending on what you need it to do. When taking gentian, follow the manufacturer’s instructions so that you don’t take too much or too little.

    Gentian is like having a broad spectrum of stomach medicines in your cabinet. Make sure to keep a supply of it in your medicine cabinet for those times when your stomach doesn’t agree with what you’ve eaten or your appetite is diminished. And if you tend to have anemic blood, taking gentian regularly can prevent you from having fatigue.

    GINGER ROOT C/S                      

    GINGER ROOT POWDER           


    Settles an upset stomach     Relieves nausea, motion sickness and dizziness

    Calms digestion     Decreases inflammation  

     Used for anti-inflammatory diseases like arthritis


    Scientists have found evidence to support ginger's wide range of medicinal actions. These actions include the lowering of cholesterol levels, relief for allergies and asthma, arthritis, colds, and nausea; and protecting the digestive tract and liver against toxins and parasites. Ginger inhibits cholesterol production in the liver, which makes up to 85% of the cholesterol in circulation in the blood stream. Ginger also decreases the activity of plate-activating factor (PAF), a clotting agent that creates the clot that can result in heart attack of stroke. Ginger's ability to reduce PAF activity also makes the herb effective against allergies and asthma. PAF, which stimulates the inflammation seen in allergy and the bronchial constriction seen in asthma becomes more active when fat is consumed. Dried ginger, especially dried ginger tinctures, can offset this effect. In a clinical trial in India, the consumption of 5 grams (5 teaspoons) of dried ginger per day for seven days reversed blood lipid elevation caused by daily consumption of 100 grams (3-12/ ounces) of butter. Ginger relieves the pain of rheumatoid arthritis by stopping the immune system's production of inflammatory leukotrienes. Ginger's effects against infection have also been confirmed by laboratory science. One ginger compounds kills cold viruses at a concentration of less than one part per million, a concentration to that found in raw ginger. Ginger contains a chemical called zingibain that dissolves parasites and their eggs. This antiparasitic effect is put to use preparing sushi. Sushi is traditionally eaten with pickled ginger, and ginger extract have been shown to kill the anisakid worm, a parasite sometimes carried in raw fish, within sixteen hours. In addition, ginger tea effectively treats schistosomiasis, a parasitic disease increasingly prevalent among tourists returning to North America, Australia, and Europe from lesser developed areas of the tropics. Ginger can protect the lining of the stomach from alcohol damage, which aggravate existing ulcers and promote the development of new ones. Ginger is especially useful in small doses in pregnancy. Some babies are born breech, that is, feet first instead of hear first. Chinese researcher report that simply applying a ginger paste to a specific acupuncture point results in a 77-percent correction of breech births, compared to a 52 percent correction in women in the control group who had their babies turned manually. Ginger is also an age-old remedy for morning sickness. When used in herbal formulas, ginger protects the body from carcinogenic effects of valproic acid (Depakote), a medication commonly prescribed for migraine and seizure disorders.

    Precautions:  Although there are warnings in both Traditional Chinese Medicine and some medical texts about using ginger during pregnancy, ginger used in moderation, that is 3/4 teaspoon up to three times a day, poses no risk to mother's or baby's health. Studies in the late 1990's found that eating as much as 2 to 3 tablespoons of raw ginger or 5 to 8 tablespoons of dried ginger daily will not stimulate uterine contraction. Excessive use may cause gastro-intestinal upset.

    Introduction:  Ginger is the most widely used and available herbal remedy on the planet, with billions of people using it every day as both food and medicine. A tropical perennial growing to a height of two feet, ginger has lance-shaped leaves and bears stalks of white or yellow flowers. Ginger has long been the subject of fable and literature. For centuries, Europeans obtained ginger form Arab spice traders, who protected their sources by inviting stories of ginger field located in lands stalked by a fierce people called troglodytes. And Shakespeare wrote in Love's Labour Lost, "had I but one penny in the world thou shouldst have it to buy ginger-bread." Ginger is used either fresh or dried in nearly two thirds of all traditional Chinese and Japanese herbal formulas. Fresh ginger is used to relieve dryness and heat, while dried ginger is used to relieve dampness and chill. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, ginger is said to "rescue devastated yang," a condition in which invading cold or infection has reached the interior of the body. Ginger warms the energy channels and stops bleeding, especially uterine bleeding. It is a detoxifier, and is always included in formulas with potentially toxic herbs such as aconite, acorus, and pinellia.      Constituents:  1,8-cineole, 6-gingerol, 6-shogaol, 8-shogaol, acetic acid, alpha-linolenic acid, alpha-phellandrene, alpha-pinene, alpha-terpinene, alpha-terpineol, arginine, ascorbic acid, beta-bisolene, beta-carotene, beta-pinene, beta-sitosterol, boron, caffeic acid, camphor, capsaicin, chlorogenic acid, curcumene, gingerols, sesquiphellandrene, zingiberene, resins, starches, fats, proteins.      Parts Used:  Dried, peeled rhizome, chopped. Chopped ginger is used to treat "wetter" conditions, such as treating or preventing infections, while powdered ginger is used to treat "drier" conditions, such as allergy, asthma.      Typical Preparations:  Teas, tinctures, encapsulations, in herbal formulas, and in cooking. First-time users of ginger tend to use too much. To make ginger tea, simmer 3/4 teaspoon (0.5 to 1.0 grams) of chopped ginger in 1 cup of hot water for five minutes in a closed teapot. To treat asthma, use an alcohol-based tincture rather than a tea.

They are sweet, astringent, and non-heating; they stop "leakage" of fluids into air passageways without causing heat, increased heartbeat, or excitability. Recent research into the plant has discovered a range of medicinally active compounds in the leaves and this has excited a lot of interest in the health-promoting potential of the plant. In particular, the leaves stimulate the blood circulation and have a tonic effect on the brain, reducing lethargy, improving memory and giving an improved sense of well-being. They have also been shown to be effective in improving peripheral arterial circulation and in treating hearing disorders such as tinnitus where these result from poor circulation or damage by free radicals. The leaves contain ginkgolides, these are compounds that are unknown in any other plant species. Ginkgolides inhibit allergic responses and so are of use in treating disorders such as asthma. Eye disorders and senility have also responded to treatment. The leaves are best harvested in the late summer or early autumn just as they begin to change colour. They are dried for later use.   Precautions: The leaf is not recommended for persons currently taking blood thinning medications. For nuts- do not use if you have a current outbreak of poison ivy or contact dermatitis, since the increased circulation to the skin caused by the herb could spread the toxin.



    panax Side Effects

    Panax ginseng is POSSIBLY SAFE when taken by mouth and when applied to the skin as part of a multi-ingredient product (SS Cream), in the short-term. Panax ginseng is POSSIBLY UNSAFE when taken by mouth, long-term (more than 6 months). Researchers think it may have some hormone-like effects that could be harmful with prolonged use.

    The most common side effect is trouble sleeping (insomnia). Less commonly, people experience menstrual problems, breast pain, increased heart rate, high or low blood pressure, headache, loss of appetite, diarrhea, itching, rash, dizziness, mood changes, vaginal bleeding, and other side effects.

    Uncommon side effects that have been reported include severe rash called Stevens-Johnson syndrome, liver damage, and severe allergic reactions.

    Special Precautions & Warnings:

    Pregnancy and breast-feeding: Panax ginseng is POSSIBLY UNSAFE when taking by mouth during pregnancy. One of the chemicals in Panax ginseng has been found to cause birth defects in animals. Do not use Panax ginseng if you are pregnant.

    Not enough is known about the safety of Panax ginseng during breast-feeding. Stay on the safe side and don’t use it.

    Infants and children: Panax ginseng is LIKELY UNSAFE in infants and children. Using Panax ginseng in babies has been linked to poisoning that can be fatal. The safety of Panax ginseng in older children is not known. Until more is known, do not use Panax ginseng even in older children.

    “Auto-immune diseases” such as multiple sclerosis (MS), lupus (systemic lupus erythematosus, SLE), rheumatoid arthritis (RA), or other conditions: Panax ginseng seems to increase the activity of the immune system. It might make auto-immune diseases worse. Don’t use Panax ginseng if you have any auto-immune condition.

    Bleeding conditions: Panax ginseng seems to interfere with blood clotting. Don’t use Panax ginseng if you have a bleeding condition.

    Heart conditions: Panax ginseng can affect heart rhythm and blood pressure slightly on the first day it is used. However, there are usually no changes with continued use. Nevertheless, Panax ginseng has not been studied in people with cardiovascular disease. Use Panax ginseng with caution if you have heart disease.

    Diabetes: Panax ginseng might lower blood sugar. In people with diabetes who are taking medications to lower blood sugar, adding Panax ginseng might lower blood sugar too much. Monitor your blood sugar closely if you have diabetes and use Panax ginseng.

    Hormone-sensitive conditions such as breast cancer, uterine cancer, ovarian cancer, endometriosis, or uterine fibroids: Panax ginseng contains chemicals (ginsenosides) that can act like estrogen. If you have any condition that might be made worse by exposure to estrogen, don’t use Panax ginseng.

    Trouble sleeping (insomnia): High doses of Panax ginseng have been linked with insomnia. If you have trouble sleeping, use Panax ginseng with caution.

    Schizophrenia (a mental disorder): High doses of Panax ginseng have been linked with sleep problems and agitation in people with schizophrenia. Be careful when using Panax ginseng if you have schizophrenia.

    Organ transplant: Panax ginseng might make the immune system more active. This could interfere with the effectiveness of medications that are given after an organ transplant to reduce the chance that the organ will be rejected. If you have received an organ transplant, don’t use Panax ginseng

    ginseng, panax Overview Information

    Panax ginseng is a plant. People use the root to make medicine. Do not confuse Panax ginseng with American ginseng, Siberian ginseng, or Panax pseudoginseng. See the separate listings for American ginseng and Siberian ginseng.  
    Panax ginseng is used for improving thinking, concentration, memory and work efficiency, physical stamina, and athletic endurance.  
    Some people use Panax ginseng to help them cope with stress and as a general tonic for improving well-being. They sometimes call Panax ginseng an “adaptogen” when it’s used in this way. 
    Panax ginseng is also used for
    depression, anxiety, chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), for boosting the immune system, and for fighting particular infections in a lung disease called cystic fibrosis. These infections are caused by a bacterium named Pseudomonas. 
    Some people use Panax ginseng to treat
    breast cancer and prevent ovarian cancer, liver cancer, lung cancer, and skin cancer
    Other uses include treatment of
    anemia, diabetes, inflammation of the stomach lining (gastritis), fever, hangover, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and asthma.  
    Panax ginseng is also used for bleeding disorders, loss of appetite,
    vomiting, intestinal problems, fibromyalgia, sleeping problems (insomnia), nerve pain, joint pain, dizziness, headache, convulsions, disorders of pregnancy and childbirth, hot flashes due to menopause, and to slow the aging process.

    Some men use Panax ginseng on the skin of the penis as part of a multi-ingredient product for treating early orgasm (premature ejaculation). Men also use it for erectile dysfunction (ED). There is some evidence that Panax ginseng is effective for these uses.
    In manufacturing, Panax ginseng is used to make soaps, cosmetics, and as a flavoring in beverages. 
    Ginseng has been used as a medicine for over two thousand years. Today, approximately 6 million Americans use it regularly.  
    Some people consider the age of the ginseng roots important. In 1976, a 400-year-old root of Manchurian ginseng from the mountains of China reportedly sold for $10,000 per ounce. 
    In Western medicine, Panax ginseng is used as a stimulant to make people more active. But, in contrast, in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), Panax ginseng is used to make people feel calmer. It is also widely used in China for the
    heart and blood vessels. Higher doses are generally used in TCM than in Western medicine.   
    Be aware that Panax ginseng products are not always what they claim. The contents of products labeled as containing Panax ginseng can vary greatly. Many contain little or no Panax ginseng.   
    Panax ginseng interacts with many
    prescription drugs. See the section below titled “Are there any interactions with medications?” If you take medications, talk to your healthcare provider before taking Panax ginseng.

    How does it work?

    Panax ginseng contains many active substances. The substances thought to be most important are called ginsenosides or panaxosides. Ginsenosides is the term coined by Asian researchers, and the term panaxosides was chosen by early Russian researchers.   
    Panax ginseng is often referred to as a general well-being medication, because it affects many different systems of the body.
      

    panax Uses & Effectiveness  Possibly Effective for:


  • Alzheimer’s disease. Evidence shows that taking Panax ginseng root daily for 12 weeks can improve mental performance in people with Alzheimer’s disease.
  • Lung disease called chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Taking Panax ginseng by mouth seems to improve lung function and some symptoms of COPD.
  • Mental function. Taking Panax ginseng by mouth might improve abstract thinking, mental arithmetic skills, and reaction times in healthy, middle-aged people but not in young adults. Panax ginseng alone does not seem to improve memory, but there is some evidence that a combination of Panax ginseng and ginkgo leaf extract can improve memory in otherwise healthy people between the ages of 38 and 66.
  • Erectile dysfunction (ED). Taking Panax ginseng by mouth seems to improve sexual function in men with erectile dysfunction.
  • High blood pressure. Early evidence shows that taking Panax ginseng might slightly decrease blood pressure in people with high blood pressure.
  • Premature ejaculation. Applying a cream containing Panax ginseng, angelica root, Cistanches deserticola, Zanthoxyl species, torlidis seed, clover flower, asiasari root, cinnamon bark, and toad venom (SS Cream) to the penis one hour before intercourse and washing off immediately before intercourse seems to help prevent premature ejaculation
  • Sexual arousal. Taking powdered Korean red ginseng, a specific form of Panax ginseng, seems to improve sexual arousal and satisfaction in postmenopausal women. Also, using a specific product containing Korean red ginseng and other ingredients (ArginMax) seems to improve sexual desire in women. 
  • Insufficient Evidence for
    • Bad breath. Early evidence suggests that taking Korean red ginseng, a type of Panax ginseng, daily for 10 weeks helps reduce bad breath, particularly in people with bad breath caused by Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) infection.
    • Breast cancer. Some studies conducted in China suggest that some people with breast cancer treated with any form of ginseng (American or Panax) have a higher quality of life and lower risk of death. However, this might not be a result of taking the ginseng, because the people in the study were also more likely to be treated with the prescription cancer drug tamoxifen. It is difficult to know how much of the benefit to attribute to ginseng.
    • Infection of the airways in the lung (bronchitis). Taking Panax ginseng, combined with antibiotics, might be more effective in killing bacteria than antibiotic treatment alone.
    • Cancer. Research suggests that taking ginseng by mouth might decrease the occurrence of some types of cancer, including stomach cancer, lung cancer, liver cancer, ovarian cancer, and skin cancer. Also, early research suggests that taking Panax ginseng (Cultivated Wild Ginseng Pharmacopuncture) intravenously (by IV) might stop or slow the progression of lung cancer.
    • Common cold. There is some evidence that taking a specific Panax ginseng extract (G115) by mouth can decrease the chance of catching a cold.
    • Heart failure. Administering ginseng intravenously (by IV) seems to improve symptoms of heart failure.
    • Diabetes. There is inconsistent evidence about the effects of Panax ginseng on diabetes. Some research shows that taking Panax ginseng by mouth daily can improve blood sugar levels. However, other research suggests that taking Panax ginseng (AIPOP, Gangdown-Do, Korea) or Korean red ginseng extract (Spectrum Laboratories, Gardena, CA) by mouth does not improve blood sugar levels in people with diabetes.
    • Fatigue. Early evidence shows that taking a specific product containing Panax ginseng, vitamins, and minerals (Pharmaton) might reduce symptoms of fatigue.
    • HIV. Early evidence shows that Korean red ginseng, a particular form of Panax ginseng, might increase immune function but does not affect how much of the HIV virus is circulating in the blood of people with HIV
    • Prediabetes. Taking a combination of Korean red ginseng and cheonggukjang, a type of fermented soybean paste, can reduce blood sugar levels in people with prediabetes.
    • Influenza. There is some evidence that taking a specific Panax ginseng extract (G115) by mouth beginning 4 weeks before a flu shot and continuing for 8 weeks after can decrease the risk of getting the flu.
    • Memory. Taking a specific Panax ginseng extract (G115) together with vitamins, minerals and dimethylaminoethanol bitartrate might improve memory in older people with memory problems.
    • Postmenopausal conditions. Some early research suggests that Panax ginseng might improve quality of life and menopausal symptoms, such as fatigue, insomnia, and depression in postmenopausal women. However, Panax ginseng does not appear to reduce hot flashes.
    • Quality of life. While some research suggests that Panax ginseng might improve quality of life, other research shows no benefit.
    • Wrinkled skin. Early research shows that taking a combination of Korean red ginseng root with Torilus fructus and Corni fructus daily for 24 weeks might reduce wrinkles, but does not appear to affect skin moisture, elasticity, thickness, or color.
    • Depression.
    • Anemia.
    • Fluid retention.
    • Stomach inflammation and other digestive problems.
    • Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) .
    • Fibromyalgia.
    • Fever.
    • Other conditions.

    More evidence is needed to rate Panax ginseng for these uses.

    panax ginseng, Interactions

    • Alcohol interacts with GINSENG, PANAX

      The body breaks down alcohol to get rid of it. Taking Panax ginseng might increase how fast your body gets rid of alcohol.

    • Caffeine interacts with GINSENG, PANAX

      Caffeine can speed up the nervous system. By speeding up the nervous system, caffeine can make you feel jittery and speed up your heartbeat. Panax ginseng might also speed up the nervous system. Taking Panax ginseng along with caffeine might cause serious problems including increased heart rate and high blood pressure. Avoid taking caffeine along with Panax ginseng.

    • Furosemide (Lasix) interacts with GINSENG, PANAX

      Some scientists think that Panax ginseng might decrease how well furosemide (Lasix) works. But there isn't enough information to know if this is a big concern.

    • Insulin interacts with GINSENG, PANAX

      Panax ginseng might decrease blood sugar. Insulin is also used to decrease blood sugar. Taking Panax ginseng along with insulin might cause your blood sugar to be too low. Monitor your blood sugar closely. The dose of your insulin might need to be changed.

    • Medications changed by the liver (Cytochrome P450 2D6 (CYP2D6) substrates) interacts with GINSENG, PANAX

      Some medications are changed and broken down by the liver. Panax ginseng might decrease how quickly the liver breaks down some medications. Taking Panax ginseng along with some medications that are changed by the liver can increase the effects and side effects of your medication. Before taking Panax ginseng talk to your healthcare provider if you take any medications that are changed by the liver.
      Some medications that are changed by the liver include amitriptyline (Elavil), clozapine (Clozaril), codeine, desipramine (Norpramin), donepezil (Aricept), fentanyl (Duragesic), flecainide (Tambocor), fluoxetine (Prozac), meperidine (Demerol), methadone (Dolophine), metoprolol (Lopressor, Toprol XL), olanzapine (Zyprexa), ondansetron (Zofran), tramadol (Ultram), trazodone (Desyrel), and others.

    • Medications for depression (MAOIs) interacts with GINSENG, PANAX

      Panax ginseng might stimulate the body. Some medications used for depression can also stimulate the body. Taking Panax ginseng with these medications used for depression might cause too much stimulation. This might cause side effects such as anxiousness, headache, restlessness, and insomnia.
      Some of these medications used for depression include phenelzine (Nardil), tranylcypromine (Parnate), and others.

    • Medications for diabetes (Antidiabetes drugs) interacts with GINSENG, PANAX

      Panax ginseng might decrease blood sugar. Diabetes medications are also used to lower blood sugar. Taking Panax ginseng along with diabetes medications might cause your blood sugar to go too low. Monitor your blood sugar closely. The dose of your diabetes medication might need to be changed.
      Some medications used for diabetes include glimepiride (Amaryl), glyburide (DiaBeta, Glynase PresTab, Micronase), insulin, pioglitazone (Actos), rosiglitazone (Avandia), chlorpropamide (Diabinese), glipizide (Glucotrol), tolbutamide (Orinase), and others.

    • Medications that decrease the immune system (Immunosuppressants) interacts with GINSENG, PANAX

      Panax ginseng increases the immune system. By increasing the immune system, Panax ginseng might decrease the effectiveness of medications that decrease the immune system.
      Some medications that decrease the immune system include azathioprine (Imuran), basiliximab (Simulect), cyclosporine (Neoral, Sandimmune), daclizumab (Zenapax), muromonab-CD3 (OKT3, Orthoclone OKT3), mycophenolate (CellCept), tacrolimus (FK506, Prograf), sirolimus (Rapamune), prednisone (Deltasone, Orasone), corticosteroids (glucocorticoids), and others.

    • Medications that slow blood clotting (Anticoagulant / Antiplatelet drugs) interacts with GINSENG, PANAX

      Panax ginseng might slow blood clotting. Taking Panax ginseng along with medications that also slow clotting might increase the chances of bruising and bleeding.
      Some medications that slow blood clotting include aspirin, clopidogrel (Plavix), diclofenac (Voltaren, Cataflam, others), ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin, others), naproxen (Anaprox, Naprosyn, others), dalteparin (Fragmin), enoxaparin (Lovenox), heparin, warfarin (Coumadin), and others.

    • Stimulant drugs interacts with GINSENG, PANAX

      Stimulant drugs speed up the nervous system. By speeding up the nervous system, stimulant medications can make you feel jittery and speed up your heartbeat. Panax ginseng might also speed up the nervous system. Taking Panax ginseng along with stimulant drugs might cause serious problems including increased heart rate and high blood pressure. Avoid taking stimulant drugs along with Panax ginseng.
      Some stimulant drugs include diethylpropion (Tenuate), epinephrine, phentermine (Ionamin), pseudoephedrine (Sudafed), and many others.

    • Warfarin (Coumadin) interacts with GINSENG, PANAX

      Warfarin (Coumadin) is used to slow blood clotting. There is some concern that Panax ginseng might decrease the effectiveness of warfarin (Coumadin). But it's not clear if this interaction is a big problem. Be sure to have your blood checked regularly. The dose of your warfarin (Coumadin) might need to be changed.

    GINSENG (Siberian) ROOT C/S  wc (Eleuthero)         

    GINSENG (Siberian) ROOT POWDER  wc (Eleuthero)


      Supports healthy energy levels.

      Helpful for fatigue, stress and mental exhaustion.

      Potent adaptogenic properties.


    --Also known as: Eleutherococcus senticosus, (Formerly known as Siberian Ginseng,) a name banned in the United States by the Ginseng Labeling Act of 2002) Acanthopanax senticosus, Ci Wu Jia, Devil's Bush, Devil's Shrub, Eleuthera, Eleuthero, Eleutherococc, Eleutherococci radix, Eleutherococcus senticosus, Ginseng Root, Hedera senticosa, Pepperbrush, Prickly Eleutherococc, Shigoka, Touch-Me-Not, Ussuri, Ussurian Thorny, Wild Pepper, Wu Jia Pi.    

    Eleuthero is an "adaptogen," an agent that helps the body address to stress. Scientists believe it helps prevent "adrenal burnout" caused by ongoing physical or mental challenges. Eleuthero boosts concentration and focus without the letdown than comes from drinking coffee or other sources of caffeine. Eleuthero also boosts immunity. Healthy people taking 2 teaspoons (10 ml) of tincture three times daily have been shown to have increased numbers of the immune cells (CD4+ cells) that have decrease during HIV-infection and AIDS. Eleuthero may also enhance athletic performance. Eleuthero was a favorite of trainers and coaches of Olympic athletes in the old Soviet Union. When the word about eleuthero got out, Western scientists put it to the test. A study of six baseball players found that taking eleuthero for 8 days increased breathing capacity. That is, eleuthero gave the players more wind to sprint between bases. In another clinical test, scientists in Australia found that men (and women) who took eleuthero 8 weeks had 13% strength gains in the pectoral muscles and 15% in the biceps. And a company in New Jersey found that taking eleuthero for 8 weeks increased the body's ability to burn fat through exercise by about 43%. The scientists running these tests recruited experienced athletes. The benefits of this readily available herb are even more noticeable in beginning athletes. Just be sure to take the herb for at least 8 weeks for best results. Combining eleuthero with other herbs can be even better. Soviet scientists found taking both schisandra and eleuthero benefited endurance athletes by giving them an immune system boost. The two herbs together helped prevent colds, flu, and other infections after athletic events. Eleuthero is not the only herb for athletes. American trainers report a combination of sea buckthorn, wild oats, and stinging nettle increases strength, anaerobic power (muscle output when the athlete is out of breath), endurance time, and even feelings of well being. For best results, increase the vitamin C foods in your diet when you take these herbs.   Precautions:  May cause insomnia if taken too close to bedtime. Not recommended for persons with uncontrolled high blood pressure.

     Introduction: Eleuthero is a woodland plant native to southeastern Siberia and the Korean peninsula, and adapted to the damp forests of British Columbia, Washington, Oregon, and northern California. A relative of the more famous red ginseng, eleuthero has been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine since about 190 AD. It became a widely cultivated herb after its use as an adaptogen (an herb that helps the body adapt to stress) was discovered by a Soviet scientist named Brekhman in the 1940's. It was dispensed to entire cities in Siberia for 10 weeks in early winter to prevent colds and flu, and used as a treatment for radiation exposure after the Chernobyl accident.   

    Constituents:  Eleutherosides B and E, and immunostimulant complex polysaccharides.  

    Parts Used:  The dried root.   Typical Preparations:  Encapsulated root, tea, or tincture, may be added to juices or smoothies.

     

    GOLDEN ROD HERBS C/S             

    The traditional use of goldenrod was to treat kidney stones. Grieve's Modern Herbal notes that in 1788 a boy of ten, after taking the infusion for some months, passed quantities of gravel, fifteen large stones weighing up to 40 grams (1-1/4 ounce), and fifty over the size of a pea. The flavonoids and saponins in the herb help relieve inflammation throughout the urinary tract while acting as a mild diuretic.    Precautions:  Do not use during acute attacks of kidney stones or other kidney disorders.    Introduction:  The German E Commission monograph indicates that it is used for inflammatory diseases of the lower urinary tract. Historically, it has also been used as a diuretic, an anti-inflammatory, an antiseptic, an astringent and an anti spasmodic. It grows wild in Europe, parts of Asia and North America, but most medicinal varieties are grown in Eastern Europe. In Europe it is part of a brew known as "Blue Mountain Wine". The Native Americans brewed it as a tea for sore throat and fatigue. In the Americas, after the Boston Tea Party, the colonists, having just gotten rid of their favorite beverage, made a tea of goldenrod and called it "Liberty Tea". It was also used as a dye amongst the colonists. Other legends tell that the stem could be used by some as a divining rod, and that when it grows near a house, the occupants will be granted good fortune.    Constituents:  Flavonoids, including kaempferol, rhamnetin, quercetin, quercitrin, astragalin, and afzetin; also saponins, essential oil, germacrene, pinene, limonene, hydoxycinnamic acid, caffeic acid, and tannins.    Parts Used:  The above-ground parts of the plant, ground and chopped.    Typical Preparations:  Traditionally used as a tea, sometimes available in tea bags. The tea should be drunk between meals. May also be taken as a capsule or extract.



    GOLDENSEAL ROOT POWDER        

      

    Natural anti-bacterial and anti-biotic properties    Supports the immune system 

    Helps the body fight infection    Helpful for respiratory conditions

     Goldenseal root is considered to be an effective broad spectrum antibiotic, and is very much in demand worldwide. Its antibiotic and anti-inflammatory properties have led researchers to study goldenseal root as a possible alternative to chemical antibiotics. Goldenseal also appears to promote healthy glandular function, and may have a tonic and detoxifying effect on the entire system.  Precautions:  Because berberine can stimulate contractions, goldenseal root should not be used by pregnant women. Goldenseal may raise blood pressure and should not be used for extended periods of time by those with heart conditions.   

    Typical Preparations

    In tea as an infusion or decoction, in capsules, as a poultice and in liquid extract form.


    Goldenseal, (Hydrastis Canadensis) is believed to help reduce  inflammation of the mucous membranes, such as those lining the throat, sinuses, and lungs enabling the tissues to resume their protective role.


    GOTU KOLA HERB  POWDER                              


     Promotes vitality and longevity       Enhances circulation 

    May aid in memory enhancement

    Gotu Kola, also known as Indian Pennywort is one of the most widely used and important Ayurvedic herbs on the market today. While popularly used as a food source rich in vitamin C in the form of leafy greens within Bangladesh, Thailand and Sri Lanka it also has been internationally recognized within many countries pharmacopoeias and has been a valid, recognized, botanical medicine since 1884. In India it has been used as a folk remedy for leprosy, lupus, and improving mental functions, as well as to fortify the immune system. It is used in Traditional Chinese medicine as a treatment for colds, sunstroke, urinary tract infections, and dysentery.  The widespread belief that Gotu Kola helps improve memory led to several studies on its effect on the central nervous and circulatory systems. The preliminary results suggest that it may help with memory and cognitive disabilities as well as helping the body overcome stress and fatigue.   Precautions: It should be noted that those with mild to moderate depression might want to use caution. Some testing done in India indicates it may act as a very mild depressant.



    GRAVEL ROOT POWDER                       

    Also known as: Joe-Pye Weed, or Queen of the Meadow

    Gravel root is a native of the North American continent.  Native American culture has a long history using gravel root. It was used to treat colds and fevers, and as a wash for joint pain. It was also considered an aphrodisiac.  It was used largely to treat urinary problems, especially kidney stones, or gravel. It is also used in traditional medicine to reduce fever, increase urination, and induce sweating to break a fever. 

    The Iroquois called a decoction of gravel root "little medicine water" because of its healing properties. The herb is a diuretic, astringent, anti-inflammatory and febrifuge. It may be used to ease urination in cases where kidney stones are present, and can help relieve edema associated with gout and rheumatism. The tea may help break a fever by encouraging sweating, and is often used to treat diseases of the urogenital tract. Other Native American uses have included relieving constipation, washing wounds with a strong tea made from the root to prevent infection.. Precautions Not recommended while pregnant. It should not be used in the long term as it may cause damage to the liver or kidneys.

    GRAVIOLA LEAF POWDER wc       


    Graviola is a small evergreen tree. The leaves, fruit, seeds, and stem are used to make medicine.

    Despite safety concerns, graviola is used to treat infections caused by bacteria and parasites including leishmaniasis, a disease caused by parasites transmitted through the bite of sand fleas; herpes; coughs; and cancer. It is also used to cause vomiting and to empty the bowels. Some people use graviola to help them relax.

    Graviola is applied to the
    skin for arthritis.

    In foods, graviola is used in cooking and beverages.


    How does it work?

    Graviola contains many chemicals that may be active against cancer, as well as disease-causing agents such as bacteria, viruses, and parasites.

    Insufficient Evidence for:

    • Cancer. There is evidence that some of the chemicals in graviola may keep cancer cells from removing anticancer drugs. This may help the drugs work better. Some chemicals in graviola may also kill cancer cells directly.
    • Bacterial infections.
    • Parasitic infections.
    • Coughs.
    • Inflammation of the nose and throat.
    • Herpes.
    • An infection caused by sand fleas (leishmaniasis).
    • Causing relaxation.
    • Causing vomiting.
    • Emptying the bowels.
    • Other conditions.
    More evidence is needed to rate the effectiveness of graviola for these uses.
    GRAVIOLA Side Effects & Safety

    Graviola is UNSAFE. It can kill nerve cells in the brain and other parts of the body. It may cause movement disorders similar to Parkinson’s disease.

    Special Precautions & Warnings:

    Pregnancy or breast-feeding: Do not use graviola. It is UNSAFE.

    Parkinson’s disease: Graviola might make the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease worse.

    GREEN MATCHA TEA  ORGANIC         


    Our matcha is 100% certified organic and is guaranteed to have no color added. Our matcha is produced from early spring buds and top young leaves of tea plants. On the plantation, our matcha is grown in partial sunlight in covered tea fields shaded from the sun for about one month before being picked. resulting in a brighter green color and stronger taste. After harvest it is kept in a temperature-controlled cool room and is shipped to our warehouse immediately after it is ground. It is rich in antioxidants and vitamin C and is perfect for making matcha lattes, frappes, smoothies etc. Its growing and production are certified organic by Imo (a Switzerland certifier). 

      The processed leaves are ground into a fine powder. Matcha has a desirable sweetness not found in any other tea and is rich in antioxidants and vitamin C. 100% pure green tea.  Matcha is a fine Chinese classical green tea powder used in China since at least the Song Dynasty (960-1234).  It is now used in tea ceremonies in Japan.  The advantage of drinking or eating Matcha is that it gives 100% of the health benefits of green tea because you eat the whole leaves instead of drinking an infusion of tea.

    Matcha powdered Green Tea is praised for being rich in naturally occurring catechins including EGCG (Epigallocatechin gallate), which are believed to help protect against cancer, help prevent cardiovascular disease and help reduce harmful cholesterol in the blood. Since you are actually ingesting the whole Green Tea leaf when drinking Matcha and using the powder in your smoothies, baking etc, you are receiving more health benefits, in fact approximately 10X more than an infusion of Green Tea leaves.

     GREEN TEA C/S  (GUNPOWDER - PELLETS)    

    --A hearty, strong, green tea that is rolled in small pellets and was aptly awarded its title, because of its resemblance to the pellets used for gunpowder ammunitions during the 17th century. Originally rolled tightly to preserve freshness and maintain moisture during long voyages overseas, it still holds true as an unsurpassable fresh tea that is full of dark bold color and a striking taste that is unforgettable. Gunpowder tea is astringent and mildly bitter and you can add a very small pinch of Stevia or Spearmint to soften the taste. Contains caffeine.



    GYMNEMA POWDER


    Traditional Ayurvedic medicine       Known as the 'Destroyer of Sugar'

     Supports healthy glucose metabolism      Reduces sugar craving 

    Ideal for those concerned with Diabetes and Hypoglycemia;


    Avid and thorough Indian research is working hard to quantify and validate the sugar balancing properties of Gymnema. Studies in India as far back as the 1930's have shown that the leaves cause hypoglycemia in animals that were tested: the assumption being that it stimulates the insulin secretion in the pancreas. It is their belief that these findings will further prove the effectiveness of Gymnema in controlling blood sugar. Because of its ease in use, and promising results, it is widely used and popularly accepted as a safe and effective treatment in diabetes. However it should be noted that those currently on insulin or hypoglycemic drugs will have to monitor their levels more closely.      Precautions Gymnema has been shown to enhance the blood glucose lowering effects of insulin and hypoglycemic drugs. Blood glucose levels should be monitored closely.

    Also known as:  Gymnema sylvestris Gurmar, and Destroyer of Sugar.    Introduction:  Gymnema comes to us from mainland India and several parts of Africa and has a deep history rooted in Ayurvedic medicine. Indian folklore says that Ganesha had Madhumeha, the Indian word for diabetes, as was evidenced by his purported predisposition to eating heavy and sweet foods. Diabetes has been known by the people of India for thousands of years. Currently Gymnema is one of the major botanicals being administered for those suffering from diabetes, in boosting insulin levels and controlling healthy blood sugar levels. Because Gymnema has a molecular structure similar to sugar, it blocks and inhibits a large percentage of sugar absorption and has the incredible ability of severing ones desire for sugar. This is why it is known as the "Destroyer of Sugar" in Indian culture. This probably explains its widespread use from Mothers wishing to tame their children's sweet tooth.      Constituents:  Gymnemic acid, Glucose, and Carbohydrates.      Parts Used:  The leaf taken orally. The best preparations have been those from whole leaf tea, but many liquid extracts and capsules work comparably well.      Typical Preparations:  Tea infusion from the leaf, either cut or whole, or taken orally in capsule or extract form. (Not to exceed 400 mg daily)

    HAWTHORNE BERRIES WHOLE                

    HAWTHORNE BERRIES  POWDER            


    HAWTHORNE FLWRS/LEAF C/S                


     Supports cardiovascular health         Increases circulation to the heart

    Helps regulate blood pressure


    Hawthorn berries are antispasmodic, cardiac, diuretic, sedative, tonic and vasodilator. Like hawthorn leaves and flowers, hawthorn berries have a hypotensive effect as well as acting as a direct and mild heart tonic. The traditional use of hawthorn berries is the treatment of weak heart combined with high blood pressure. The berries are also used to treat a heart muscle weakened by age, for inflammation of the heart muscle, for arteriosclerosis, and for nervous heart. The effect of hawthorn berry on these heart conditions is not immediate; it may be necessary to take the herb for 4 to 6 weeks to see results. Leaf and flower preparations may work faster, but hawthorn berries are better for some specific problems. A specific use for hawthorn berries is the treatment of orthostatic hypotension, a sudden loss of blood pressure caused by moving from a seated position to a standing position. Orthostatic hypotension can cause temporary loss of consciousness, and is a common complication during the first few weeks of medical treatment of high blood pressure with beta-blockers. A tincture made from a combination of hawthorn berries and camphor will not eliminate orthostatic hypotension, but it will reduce it enough that it does not cause swooning or fainting. Another often-overlooked use of hawthorn berries - this time as a tea - is treatment irritable bowel syndrome. Making a cup of tea with no more than a half-teaspoon of crushed, dried berries can relieve the constipation and gas associated with the condition. Kampo (Japanese herbal) medicine often uses crushed hawthorn berries with other herbs to treat colitis diarrhea caused by Crohn's disease, and various conditions causing rectal bleeding.  Precautions:  Taken in excess, hawthorn berry teas can cause mild diarrhea. This does not occur when the berries are used to make tinctures or are encapsulated. Diarrhea is not a side effect of the leaf and flowers. Taken in excess, hawthorn berry soft drinks, especially if they are made with the powder, can cause mild diarrhea. (Rice is added to the blend to prevent stomach upset.) Diarrhea does not occur as a result of using the herb when the berry powder is used to make tinctures or are encapsulated. Diarrhea is not a side effect of the leaf.

    Introduction:  The folklore and legends surrounding the hawthorn tree is quite large, and goes back many centuries, especially in Europe and the British Isles. The most famous hawthorn in Britain is the Holy Thorn of Glastonbury, which grows at Glastonbury Tor, the supposed resting place of King Arthur. According to legend, the tree was grown after Joseph of Arimathea, upon arriving at Glastonbury Tor, thrust his staff into the ground, and from this the tree grew. Although the original is no longer there, several of its supposed descendents still grow there. When it blooms during the winter, a sprig is traditionally sent to the Queen, who is said to decorate her breakfast table on Christmas morning. Hawthorn fruit has long been used as a food and medicine in Europe; particularly Germany, Austria, and Switzerland, where it ranks as one of the most popularly used botanical medicines, especially for treating declining heart function. Many clinical studies have been conducted on hawthorn over the past 20 years with great promise. The berry is a yellowish brown to wine-red, oval, wrinkled, and berry-like fruit (actually a pome).     Constituents:  Flavonoids and oligomeric procyanidins. The berries contain more hyperoside than the leaves and flowers, and the leaves and flowers contain more vitexin rhamnoside than the berries.     Parts Used:  The whole berry, dried, crushed and powdered.     Typical Preparations:  Hawthorn berries are more often used to make tinctures than teas, smoothies and punches. May also be taken encapsulated or as an extract.and flowers.


    Hawthorn leaf and flower, like hawthorn berries, are antispasmodic, cardiac, diuretic, sedative, tonic and vasodilator. Like hawthorn berries, hawthorn leaf and flower has a hypotensive effect as well as acting as a direct and mild heart tonic. There is considerable clinical evidence that hawthorn leaf and flower is an effective treatment for mild coronary insufficiency, when there is pressure and tightness in the chest accompanied by a slow heart rate and symptoms of congestive heart failure. The flavonoids in the leaf and flower improve circulation in the heart and increase the myocardium?s ability to withstand oxygen deprivation. Leaf and flowers from the species of hawthorn used in Traditional Chinese Medicine (Crataegus sinaica) stimulate the immune system to produce complement to fight infection.   Precautions:  None.

    Introduction:  The hawthorn is a heart herb in the rose family. It's white to brownish flowers and combined with its deeply lobed, rose-like leaves, and brown woody stems for use in teas and tinctures to treat the heart. The legends surrounding hawthorn trees go back centuries. Thomas the Rhymer, a 13th century mystic and poet, was said to have met the Fairy Queen underneath a hawthorn tree. Particularly sacred is any grove with oak, ash, and hawthorn, as it is said this is where the fairy folk reside. The hawthorn tree is a symbol of love and the union of couples in marriage, and is one of the sacred trees of the Wiccan religion. And if on May Day one was to bathe in the dew of hawthorn leaves and blossoms, ones luck, health, and beauty was said to increase exponentially for the following year.     Constituents:  Flavonoids and oligomeric procyanidins, rutin, catechols, pheno-carboxylic acids (especially chlorogenic acid), sterols, amines, coumadins, and purines. The leaves and flowers contain more vitexin rhamnoside than the berries, and the berries contain more hyperoside than the leaves and flowers. Leaves contain the highest concentrations of flavonoids if they are harvested just before the plant blooms. Plants that grow during drought and after late frosts contain the highest concentrations of antioxidants (protecting the plant just as they protect cellular structures in the human body).     Parts Used:  Leaf, flower, and stem.     Typical Preparations:  Hawthorn leaf and flower are more often used to make teas than tincture, however a tincture or even a capsule may suffice for convenience.



    HIBISCUS FLOWERS WHOLE   

    HIBISCUS FLOWERS POWDER      

    --African folk medicine uses hibiscus as a diuretic, to relieve pressure in the gallbladder, & to relax the uterus.  The mucliages in the herb make a mild laxative, but they are also helpful when the herb is used as a wash to treat weeping eczema. Regular consumption of hibiscus teas often lowers blood pressure, typically 8 - 12 mm/Hg.  Hibiscus is also the source of the hydroxycitric acid (HCA, or hydroxycut) used in many diet formulas.  This compound has been long used to fight obesity.  Scientific studies with lab animals find that it stops the conversion of carbs in food, to body fat.  It fights appetite and encourages weight loss, not by increasing energy expenditure, but by encouraging the "wasting" of carbohydrates.  HCA does not enhance weight loss during low-carb or Atkins-style diets, but it does help weight loss when used with a program of general calorie restriction, reducing consumption of carbs, protein, & fats equally.  Hibiscus powder will have more of a laxative effect than other forms of the herb.  It delivers more HCA.  It's also more likely to help lower LDL cholesterol, although definitive researh of the use of this herb for controlling high cholesterol has not been completed. Precautions: Avoid if there are gallstones.  Keep in a cool, dry place.



    HOPS FLOWERS C/S                             

    HOPS FLOWERS POWDER                

     --Fresh hops provide bitters that stimulate digestion; these bitters are also found in the aged herb. In folk medicine, washes made with hops and waters are often used to treat sores and skin injuries. Hops teas are also used to relieve the pain of bladder infections. The hops used in beer are used "fresher," so drinking beer does not have the same effect as taking hops as an herb. The German food chemist Udo Pollmer notes that soaking red or white meats in beer, before grilling, reduces the formation of cancer-causing HCA's (heterocyclic amines), and actually prevents the formation of these compounds, although "lite" or alcohol-free beers do not have this effect. Another way to avoid the HCA's, of course, is to serve vegan entrees.    

    Precautions:  The hops in beer are responsible for an unfortunate condition in men known in German herbal medicine as "beer drinker's droop," or erectile dysfunction. Avoiding excessive consumption of beer or hops helps men retain potency.

    Also known as:  Lupulus strobula. European Hops, and Lupulin.     Introduction:  A "hop" is a green cone around the female flower of the hop plant. Inside the hops are golden grains that form a sticky greenish yellow to organ-yellow powder. Hops have been used for centuries to flavor beer, at least as far back as 10,000 years ago in Asia, where it spread rapidly to Eastern Europe. The lore of hops and beer is intertwined. The Sumerians goddess Ninkasi was the goddess of brewing and beer, and head brewer to the gods. The Romans said that hops grew "wild among the willows, like wolves among sheep", hence the name Lupulus. The first mention of hops in European literature was in 1079 by Abbess Hildegarde of St. Ruprechtsberg who said that "if one intends to make beer from oats, it is prepared with hops". There is also evidence that they have been used even longer to aid sleep and to reduce libido. This should not come as any surprise as hops are a distant relative of stinging nettles and cannabis. As most of the brewing of beer was done during the middle ages by monks, there are innumerable mentions to hops and hops gardens in monastic literature. In fifteenth-century Germany, monks prescribed teas of hops to young males to help them remain chaste.      Constituents:  Up to 80% of grains of hops is a bitter resin. There are also tannins, flavonoid antioxidants, lupulone, and humulene.       Parts Used:  The cone and grains of the hops flower, dried and cut.      Typical Preparations:  Teas, infusions, tinctures, or encapsulations. Is also popularly used in dream and sleep pillows and many other cosmetic formulations.
