What's Inside

Andrographis has been in use for centuries in traditional herbal medicine systems. Due to its digestive and liver supportive or “blood purifying” properties, is commonly called the King or Prince of bitter herbs. This leads to its use in indigestion with gaseous distention – a condition we most likely call SIBO or SIFO in current times. In western herbal medicine it is mostly used for lung and sinus conditions and the common cold due to its perceived stabilizing effect on the respiratory track. Andrographis demonstrates strong liver protective effects against various toxins, with the effects of protecting the liver and increasing glutathione levels similar or better as compared to milk thistle or silymarin. Detox enzyme and liver cell protection enzymes demonstrates improvement with Andrographis. Andrographis extracts which contains arabinogalactans and andrographolides demonstrates encouraging effects against various species of bacteria, parasites and also candida. Extracts of Andrographis demonstrates cell and tissue protection, as well as decreasing inflammatory responses, with specific mention of decreasing the inflammatory response of macrophages when stimulated with LPS [gram negative bacterial cell membranes]. Andrographis decreases the immune suppression during chronic infections. Studies show that Andrographis inhibits the inflammatory enzymes TNF-α, IL-6 – both responsible for some of the runaway inflammation in chronic infectious responses.
Knotweed is included as one of the best sources of resveratrol, but also emodin. Resveratrol is a multi-pronged strategy that enables nerve and brain protection against inflammation and oxidative stress, but also functions well in other tissues, eg. digestive track. When the immune system is challenge with bacterial cell membranes [LPS], resveratrol significantly decreases secretion of immune inflammatory cytokines like interferon-gamma (IFN-g), IL-1, IL-4, IL-6, and TNF-a. Production of IL-10 was significantly increased – which is an anti inflammatory cytokine that helps manage or terminate inflammation. Blood vessel benefits – resveratrol promotes Nitric oxide formation, which helps with vasodilation an better blood flow, decreases WBC adhesiveness to blood vessel walls, acts as an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory, inhibits platelet clumping and increase blood flow. Cellular repair or anti aging – this is the most impressive effect of resveratrol. It activates the sirtuin cellular repair systems – with the top scientists in the anti-aging world focusing on the use of high dose resveratrol or NMN to keep cells in a good state of repair for the purpose of cells functioning possibly indefinitely. The theory does seem logical from their viewpoint. Emodin, the other ingredient in Knotweed, is highly protective of brain neurons and reduces pain. Emodin has wide spectrum of biological activity including anticancer, anti-inflammatory, antiviral, antibacterial and neuro-protective properties. In an in vivo rat study, emodin treated rats had less lung tissue damage in a LPS [bacterial cell membrane] inflammatory challenge, less inflammation with less oxygen free radical production – while clearing up the bacterial debris quicker. This implies less of a Herx type reaction with quicker resolution of infection and inflammation. Less tissue damage as part of the immune response to infections is a highly desirable effect.
Cat’s Claw inner bark is used in modern day western herbalism for Lyme disease, cancer, AIDS, arthritis and various immune disorders. There’s a little research about it being active against certain viral and bacterial species, but is primarily an immune herb. Peruvian tribes used the South American Uncaria species like Cat’s Claw to treat various inflammatory conditions, but also asthma and cancer. Cat’s Claw is included in Foundation Formula as an immune potentiation agent – it stimulates normalization in people with immune deficiency associated with chronic infections [bacteria and viruses] with improving CD57 cytotoxic effector cell counts, with enhanced phagocytosis – the process through which white blood cells “eat” bacteria and other pathogens, while at the same time decreasing tissue inflammatory processes. Cat’s Claw helps suppressed immune systems recover low white blood cells.
Milk Thistle is used as a foundational support for detoxification processes and general liver function – it’s been used in this capacity for millennia. We chose the standardized form due to this being the specific active ingredient that delivers the desirable effects and results. In addition to being a celebrated general liver tonic – Silymarin specifically protects and regenerates liver cells when its has been harmed by toxic, inflammatory or infectious processes. In patients with chronic liver conditions, Milk thistle helps to cause normalization of liver function, relief of bloating, abdominal pressure, weakness, nervousness, insomnia. As a liver protectant against toxicity, Milk thistle decreases mortality dramatically with Amanita mushroom poisoning. Milk thistle also decreases spleen inflammation. Regulation at the DNA gene region of cells – silymarin treatment results in the regulation of cellular stress responses to control energy-consuming (anabolic) pathways, including cellular inflammation and immunity. Milk thistle helps to down regulate inflammation in a similar way as curcumin and green tea extract, EGCG.
Siberian ginseng supplements are made from the root. The root has a mixture of components called eleutherosides that are thought to have health benefits. Among the other ingredients are chemicals called polysaccharides, which have been found to boost the immune system and lower blood sugar levels in animal tests. Eleutherococcus senticosus is a species of small, woody shrub in the family Araliaceae native to Northeastern Asia. It may be colloquially called devil’s bush, Siberian ginseng, eleuthero, ciwujia, Devil’s shrub, shigoka, touch-me-not, wild pepper, or kan jang.
Turmeric is a common spice that comes from the root of Curcuma longa. It contains a chemical called curcumin, which might reduce swelling. Turmeric has a warm, bitter taste and is frequently used to flavor or color curry powders, mustards, butters, and cheeses. Because curcumin and other chemicals in turmeric might decrease swelling, it is often used to treat conditions that involve pain and inflammation. People commonly use turmeric for osteoarthritis. It is also used for hay fever, depression, high cholesterol, a type of liver disease, and itching, but there is no good scientific evidence to support most of these uses. There is also no good evidence to support using turmeric for COVID-19.
