|BORAGE (Borago officinalis)||Borage is an herb that is known for its ability to support adrenal function. It contains natural precursors of adrenal gland hormones and helps stimulate the endocrine system functions, helps eliminate toxins, restores adrenal cortex, and contains the essential fatty acid gamma- linolenic acid (GLA). Essential fatty acids help with cardiovascular function as well as hair growth, help reduce dry itchy skin and in pets has also shown to improve coat condition. The antioxidant properties of Borage are useful for treatment of skin disorders including eczema, rheumatoid arthritis, stress, diabetes, and acute respiratory distress syndrome. It is full of nutrients, minerals and vitamins such as iron, calcium, vitamins B and C, and is also a good anti-inflammatory herb. It helps restore the adrenal glands to their natural balance, which in turn creates a calmer body and mind.|
|ASTRAGALUS (Astragalus membranaceus)||Astragalus has tonic, nutritive, antiviral and anti-inflammatory actions. It stimulates liver function, the immune system and the circulatory system. It is well accepted in cases of autoimmune diseases, and is useful in cases where the immune system has been damaged by chemicals. It regulates water, metabolism, helps reduce edema, and protects against oxidative damage. Astragalus also helps the body deal with stress, increases energy, improves immunity, regulates normal blood sugar levels and alleviates insulin resistance.|
|BISTORT (Polygonum bistorta)||Bistort is an astringent and soothing anti-inflammatory herb that has a tonic effect on liver and kidneys. The main active chemicals of Bistort are tannins, flavonoids, flobafen, and starch. It helps with GI issues, like diarrhea. The high starch content makes it a useful food.|
|ELEUTHERO (Eleutherococcus senticosus)||Eleuthero balances hormonal actions (ACTH and cortisone) on adrenal glands. It is a tonic with a modulating effect on major stress axis including pituitary glands, hypothalamus, and adrenal glands. It increases resistance to infection, stimulates DNA synthesis and cellular repair enzymes. It also stimulates metabolism, improves resistance to stress and increases energy levels. It acts as a circulatory stimulant, adaptogenic, endurance-enhancer, and has platelet aggregation inhibiting effects. Animal studies show increased resistance to stressors such as heat, cold, immobilization, trauma, surgery, blood loss, increased or decreased barometric pressure, narcotics, toxins and bacteria. The active phytochemicals in Eleuthero, such as sterols, coumarins, flavonoids, and polysaccharides increase oxygen availability at the cellular level, encouraging blood flow. Research shows that it contains anti-fatigue and anti- stress properties that help to support the adrenal glands. In addition, it protects and improves the immune system, and contains powerful antioxidants that help scavenge free radicals.|
|WILD YAM (Dioscorea villosa)||Wild Yam is an anti-inflammatory, antispasmodic herb that contains steroidal saponins (dioscin, diogenin), which is used in the preparation of steroid hormones and helps normalize hormone production. Dioscin produces an anti-inflammatory action. The antispasmodic property of wild yam is beneficial for any kind of muscular spasm and colic, as well as for poor circulation and neuralgia. It is also beneficial for nervousness, restlessness and other nervous conditions. Wild yam acts as a stimulant for increasing bile flow, and can help to relieve hepatic congestion. Wild yam is thought to have a curative action on overall liver health, and the root is believed to lower blood cholesterol levels and lower blood pressure, which indirectly helps the liver by increasing its efficiency and reducing stress.|
|LICORICE (Glycyrrhiza glabra)||Licorice has a long history within European herbal medicine. It is beneficial for the adrenal gland, endocrine, digestive and respiratory systems. The main phytochemical of licorice is glycyrrhizic acid, a compound similar to corticosteroids (which are released by the adrenal gland). Glycyrrhizic acid helps stimulate the adrenal gland and also has an anti-inflammatory action similar to hydrocortisone and other corticosteroid hormones. It encourages the production of hormones by the adrenal gland and reduces the breakdown of steroids by the liver and kidney. Licorice improves metabolism, stimulates enzyme production, reduces stress and works synergistically with other herbs. Licorice is also an immunostimulant, antiviral and anti-inflammatory that potentiates cortisone effects. It helps with blood cleansing, lubricates and soothes mucous membranes, and eases tissue damage in the upper digestive tract. Licorice relieves epigastric bloating, impaired digestion and flatulence and is also used to treat liver damage, depression, and for the prevention of carcinogenesis.|
|DANDELION (Taraxacum officinale)||A highly nutritious super-food, Dandelion is an anti-inflammatory and tonic herb that helps protect the kidneys, stimulates liver secretion and improves digestion. It exhibits safe, analgesic properties and does not contain salicylic acid. Studies have shown that Dandelion lowers total cholesterol and triglycerides while raising HDL. This vitamin and mineral dense herb helps support the body by supplementing it with the required nutrition without over working the liver, kidneys, and gallbladder. It also helps improve bile production.|
