BENEFITS OF INGREDIENTS
Echinacea is a very popular herb, and people commonly take it to help combat the flu and colds. It is a genus of herbaceous flowering plants in the daisy family - Asteraceae. It is also known as the American coneflower. Three species of Echinacea are used as herbal remedies.
Yellow dock is used for pain and swelling (inflammation) of nasal passages and the respiratory tract and as a laxative and tonic. It is also used to treat bacterial infections and sexually transmitted diseases. Yellow dock is also sometimes used to treat intestinal infections, fungal infections, and arthritis.
Diosgenin or wild yam is often promoted as a “natural alternative” to estrogen therapy, so you will see it used for estrogen replacement therapy, vaginal dryness in older women, PMS (premenstrual syndrome), menstrual cramps, weak bones (osteoporosis), increasing energy and sexual drive in men and women, and breast enlargement. Wild yam does seem to have some estrogen-like activity, but it is not actually converted into estrogen in the body. It takes a laboratory to do that.
Vegetable glycerin, also called glycerol, is made from soybean, coconut or palm oil, so it contains no animal products. Glycerin is used to keep foods moist, help mix oil- and water-based ingredients and sweeten foods. It also has some medical uses and may have some beneficial effects on hydration during exercise.
Elecampane is an herb. The root is used to make medicine. Elecampane is used for lung diseases including asthma, bronchitis, and whooping cough. It is also used to prevent coughing, especially coughing caused by tuberculosis; and as an expectorant to help loosen phlegm, so it can be coughed up more easily.
Vervain Benefits. Used by herbalists for millennia to combat depression and mood swings, Vervain is a deeply penetrating nervine that soothes and sedates the nervous system. It is a relaxing and uplifting herb that can stimulate the release of the neurotransmitters dopamine and serotonin, enhancing mood and well being.
Golden berries deliver a potent dose of antioxidants, including polyphenols and carotenoids. These antioxidants fight free radicals that damage cells which can lead to degenerative diseases. Enjoy these pleasantly tart, golden bites on a regular basis to help prevent diseases like cancer over time.
Cascara sagrada is also known by the names California buckthorn, bearberry, yellow bark, and sacred bark, as well as chittem and chitticum in the Chinook language of the Pacific Northwest.
Cascara sagrada is primarily used to treat constipation. The anthraquinones contained in the bark inhibit the absorption of water and electrolytes in the intestines. Because of this, stool volume increases as it absorbs the excess water, which increases pressure within the intestine. This stimulates muscle contractions in the colon (peristalsis), speeding the clearance of the bowel.
One of the key benefits of Black Walnut Hulls is its ability to expel various kinds of worms and parasites that live in the intestines. Often making an appearance in parasite cleanses, Black Walnut Hulls contain juglandin, juglone, and juglandic acids as well as tannins and organic iodine.
Goldenseal is also used for the common cold and other upper respiratory tract infections, as well as stuffy nose and hay fever. Some people use goldenseal for digestive disorders including stomach pain and swelling (gastritis), peptic ulcers, colitis, diarrhea, constipation, hemorrhoids, and intestinal gas.
