Ashwagandha Extract, 2 oz.
Withania somnifera

Ashwagandha holds a premier place in the Ayurvedic pharmacopeia. It is both a rasayana herb, meaning one that aids the quality of life and longevity, as well as an adaptogen, an herb that improves our ability to cope with stress. This herb has a multitude of uses but to understand how research of prized Indian herbs is conducted, it is useful to consider how well an herb protects the patient from damaging changes when exposed to chemical, metallic, or radioactive hazards and how successfully the herb protects against free radicals. Ashwagandha is very high on the list of such valuable herbs, but it is most often used to improve male potency and endurance.

Alcohol: 49-51%

Contains: 1:2 extract of organic Withania somnifera in Distilled Water, Organic Alcohol, and Vegetable Glycerin.

Ashwagandha, 90 tablets
Withania somnifera

Ashwagandha is an adaptogen, an herb that supports the ability to cope with stress. It is one of the main herbs used in Ayurvedic rejuvenative formulas and is somewhat more specific to the male reproductive system than the female, but it is used by both sexes to increase stamina. It promotes proper nourishment of tissue, especially muscles and bone, and is calming for vata.

Special notes: This formula is used to balance pitta and kapha. It can be used in conjunction with Triphala when there are skin irritations due to excess pitta.

Alcohol: none

Contains: Ashwagandha root, Withania somnifera*.

Ashwagandha, organic, half pound
Withania somnifera

Ashwagandha holds the top position among Indian rasayana herbs. It is adaptogenic, stamina building, and tonifying to the male reproductive system. The most celebrated function of ashwagandha is that it protects tissues from the usual repercussions of stress. So, it is more than an adrenal tonic, it actually shields the body from stress-induced injury. It has been demonstrated to be antitumoral, anti-arthritic, and due to the action of steroidal-like plant compounds, it is anti-inflammatory. It is not in the historic Chyawanprash formula but is substituted for two ashtavarga herbs that are scarce.

Alcohol: none

Contains: certified organic Withania somnifera root powder.

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of traditional Chinese medicine and was one of the active components of the popular PC-SPES prostate formula that was withdrawn from the market in 2002 following reports of varying traces of pharmaceutical drugs in the formula.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.
