Ginkgo is the oldest surviving species of tree and is often referred to as “the living fossil”. Fossil records indicate that it probably originated during the Permian period about 250 million years ago. In Europe it is used extensively to support cognitive function. Ginkgo and its constituents are the subjects of over 400 scientific publications, making it one of the most researched herbal products. Actions that possibly contribute to its effectiveness include direct and indirect antioxidant activity, optimal blood flow, and neuroprotective actions.
Organic hibiscus flower
You may be familiar with hibiscus, known as “sour tea”, a delicious and refreshing summertime drink. However, this pleasant-tasting herb with the deep-red color may support over all health. Originally from Angola, hibiscus is now cultivated throughout tropical and subtropical regions, especially in Sudan, Egypt, Thailand, Mexico, and China. Approximately 15-30 percent of the hibiscus plant is made up of plant acids, including citric acid, malic acid, tartaric acid and allo-hydroxycitric acid lactone — i.e. hibiscus acid, which is unique to hibiscus. Other chemical constituents are many; however, some of the most important include alkaloids, anthocyanins, and quercetin.
Organic eleuthero root
Siberian Ginseng is part of the Aralia family, as is the more commonly known Chinese Ginseng. Found in Siberia, northern China, and parts of Japan, this shrub can reach up to six feet tall at maturity. It is sometimes called "spiny" Ginseng, referring to its botanical name of Acanthopanax ("acantho" means spiny). Now correctly called Eleutherococcus, Siberian Ginseng grows abundantly in the wild, and like the other Ginsengs, has a relatively large root system. The roots are the coveted part of the plant, as they contain the active compounds, called eleutherosides. These eleutherosides include long chain sugars, known as glycosides, which have tonic properties. Some herbalist consider this the only true adaptogen.
Organic gotu kola
Supporting the nervous system may be necessary when one has a predisposition to stress related problems. Gotu kola has shown some extremely remarkable potential. Scientists have established that compounds in Gotu Kola known as triterpene acids may in fact bind to receptors in your central nervous system and may reduce your startle response.
Organic parsley leaf
The flavonoids in parsley—especially luteolin—have been shown to function as antioxidants that combine with highly reactive oxygen-containing molecules and help prevent oxygen-based damage to cells. In addition, extracts from parsley have been used in animal studies to help increase the antioxidant capacity of the blood. Parsley contains two types of unusual components that provide unique health benefits. The first type is volatile oil components—including myristicin, limonene, eugenol, and alpha-thujene. The second type is flavonoids—including apiin, apigenin, crisoeriol, and luteolin.
Organic alfalfa leaf
Alfalfa is a complete, well rounded source of vitamins and minerals that may be extremely beneficial to the body. The leaves of this amazing plant contain eight amino acids as well as calcium, zinc, magnesium, potassium, sodium, phosphorus, iron sulfides, choline and beta-carotene. Alfalfa grass is possibly an excellent source of Vitamins A, B, D, C, E and K. Alfalfa grass may be rich in saponins, phytoestrogen and antioxidants.
Organic bilberry leaf
Sometimes referred to as the European blueberry, wild bilberries have been used in traditional European medicine for over one thousand years. These major components may be responsible for bilberries powerful antioxidant activity and may support a healthy inflammation response.
Organic ginger root
Historically, ginger has a long tradition of being very effective in possibly supporting a healthy gastrointestinal tract. In herbal medicine, ginger is regarded as an excellent carminative (a substance which promotes the elimination of intestinal gas) and intestinal spasmolytic (a substance which relaxes and soothes the intestinal tract). Modern scientific research has revealed that ginger possesses numerous therapeutic properties including antioxidant effects and may support a healthy inflammation response.
