Astragalus is a member of the pea family and is a rich source of the polysaccharides needed for tissue regeneration. It is also a diuretic and immune enhancer. In addition, it nourishes bone marrow and improves adrenal cortical function. It is suitable for use by people using conventional treatments for cancer and AIDS.

Alcohol: none

Bacopa Extract, 2 oz.

Bacopa is an aquatic plant and the primary herb in many Ayurvedic formulas used to improve memory and/or concentration. Bacopa has traditionally been regarded as an aid to learning, retention, and clarity. It also has a reputation as the herb of choice for epileptic disorders and is one of the favored herbs for anxiety. Like many rasayana herbs, it is an antioxidant. It is also antiparasitic and improves gastrointestinal health, including ulcers and irritable bowel syndrome. Bacopa is very safe. In Sri Lanka, it is administered to babies from about eight months of age to purify the blood and to clear parasites and eczema.

Alcohol: 39-41%

Contents: 1:1 extract of organically grown Bacopa monnieri in Distilled Water, Organic Alcohol, and Vegetable Glycerin.

Bhringaraj Extract, 2 oz.

In the Ayurvedic medical system, bhringaraj is regarded as a rasayana or longevity herb. Though many people use this herb to stimulate hair growth and avoid graying, there are other anti-aging benefits associated with bhringaraj. The herb helps to reduce excess kapha and vata. In Siddha Medicine, the leaves are used with ghee to disgorge phlegm lodged in the tongue and tonsils, one of the preparations for serious rejuvenation. The leaf extract is a powerful liver tonic but mild enough for children to take for biliousness associated with intestinal parasites. As those familiar with Ayurvedic medicine would expect, a liver herb will tend to have a positive influence on the eyes and skin as well as the liver and blood.

Alcohol: 34-36%

Contents: Extract of aerial parts Eclipta alba in Distilled Water and Organic Alcohol.

$

Bilberry Glycerite, 2 oz.

Bilberry has been clinically shown to lower the risk of a number of diseases affecting the eyes, heart and cardiovascular system, blood sugar, and certain types of cancer, especially estrogen-sensitive cancers. It has antioxidant and eye protective properties.

Alcohol: none

Contents: Vaccinium myrtillus leaf & berry in distilled water and pure vegetable glycerin.

Black Walnut Glycerite - No Alcohol

Black Walnut, glycerite (no alcohol), 2 oz.

The Cherokee used the nut as an anthelmintic, especially for tapeworms. Peter Holmes adds roundworms to the list. Black walnut has laxative properties but is well tolerated. It relieves lymphatic congestion, presumably mainly in patients with parasitic infections.

Alcohol: none

Contents: 1:3 extract of fresh, organically grown Juglans nigra green hulls in vegetable glycerin and distilled water.

$

Gotu Kola Extract, 2 oz.

Brahmi supports the mind and nervous system, helping to improve memory and sustain intellectual effort. The leaves are considered to be very sattvic, i.e., pure as opposed to dull or stimulating. Gotu kola aids restful sleep and is a natural blood purifier. It was used by Machamuni Siddhar for his kalpa. In a way, brahmi is tridoshic because it reduces excess vata in the mind, is cooling to pitta, and decongesting to kapha.

Clinicians are discovering that it is useful in cases of cystitis and prostatitis, often not for the reasons thought: these conditions may be associated with fungal infections. Jatoba is non-toxic, but it has a blood sugar lowering effect and should be monitored with patients with blood sugar regulation issues.

Alcohol: none
