Baikal Skullcap, 2 oz.
Scutellaria baicalensis

Scutellaria baicalensis is one of the fifty fundamental herbs of traditional Chinese medicine and was one of the active components of the popular PC-SPES prostate formula that was withdrawn from the market in 2002 following reports of varying traces of pharmaceutical drugs in the formula. The New York University Medical Center reports, “Highly preliminary evidence suggests that baicalin can enhance the activity of antibiotics against antibiotic-resistant staph bacteria. Other highly preliminary evidence suggests that baicalin, wogonin, and baicalein may have anticancer, anti-inflammatory, liver-protective, anti-anxiety, and antihypertensive effects.”

Cat's Claw Extract, 2 oz.
Uncaria tomentosa

Uncaria tomentosa is a rain forest herb with demonstrated anti-inflammatory properties. It is therefore often used for people with rheumatoid arthritis. Preliminary studies suggest that cat's claw slows tumor growth and that it enhances immunity. It is safe in the recommended doses; side effects are usually associated with possible allergic reactions to plants in the Rubiaceae family.

As more and more studies are being conducted, interest in cat's claw has come to include AIDS (in conjunction with Jergon Sacha) and Lyme disease. There are a few studies suggesting that this herb is capable of such actions because it is not only a superb free-radical scavenger but also promotes the repair of DNA.

Alcohol: 45%

Contains: extract of Uncaria tomentosa bark in distilled water, organic grain alcohol, and pure vegetable glycerin.

Echinacea Extract, 2 oz.
Echinacea angustifolia

Echinacea is a Native American herb with a long history of use, mainly by the Plains Indians. It is perhaps one of the best known immune potentiators but its efficacy is greatest when taken preventatively rather than after symptoms begin to manifest.

Alcohol: 45%

Contains: fresh Echinacea angustifolia root in organic grain alcohol.

Kalmegh Extract, 2 oz.
Andrographis paniculata

This intensely bitter herb promotes healthy flow of bile and respiratory comfort. It clears the throat, head, and lungs while simultaneously boosting immunity. Though sometimes considered a liver herb, it is also regarded as an immune herb, but studies suggest it is highly specific for both typhoid and fungal infections. There is a lot of research on this herb, everything from antivenoms to immune deficiency conditions.

Alcohol: 24-26%

Contains: extract of Andrographis paniculata aerial parts in Distilled Water, Organic Alcohol, and Vegetable Glycerin.

Pau d'Arco Extract, 2 oz.
Tabebuia impetiginosa

Pau d'arco is one of the most well known South American herbs. It has a reputation for having anti-cancer, antimicrobial, and antifungal properties. It is also used to purify the blood and regulate blood sugar. Like many herbs with ethnobotanical traditions strongly suggestive of antitumoral properties, pau d'arco seems to benefit some patients more than others. It is widely believed to work better with patients with elevated levels of Candida albicans.

The earliest modern studies of pau d'arco were published by Dr. Theodore Meyer who successfully used it to cure very advanced cancers, especially leukemia. Some of his findings were questioned by those who attempted to attribute all results to a single compound. As with most herbs, the whole herb often protects against toxicity of the strongest chemical constituent, in this case, lapachol. In clinical trials, low doses stimulate immunity whereas higher doses reduce inflammation often associated with stimulation. As might be expected of an herb with antifungal properties, it helps to reduce allergic reactions.

Alcohol: 40%

Contains: extract of Tabebuia_impetiginosa bark in distilled water, organic grain alcohol, and pure vegetable glycerin.
