|Borage (Borago offcinalis) – Has been commonly used to treat |
bronchitis because it is soothing and reduces infammation;
soothes mucous membranes of the throat and mouth; helpful in
treating the kidneys to eliminate toxins from fever. Has been used
by herbalists to stimulate the adrenal glands, helping to restore
vitality after illness.
Flax Seed (Linum usitatissimum) – Has been widely used for its
demulcent and emollient properties to soothe and protect irritat-
ed mucous membranes. Conditions treated by Flax Seed include
chronic constipation, irritable colon, colon damage, diverticulitis
and several disorders of the intestinal tract.
Red Clover (Trifolium pratense) – Known for its alterative proper-
ties, it has been used by herbalists for its blood purifying qualities
and to assist with drainage in skin and joint disorders. It also
contains phytoestrogens (a natural source of estrogen) to cor-
rect hormonal imbalance and has proven to be helpful with bone
Lapacho/Pau d’Arco (Tabebuia impestiginosa) – Has been tradi-
tionally prescribed in South American medicine for dysentery, fe-
ver, sore throat, wounds, skin disorders, intestinal infammation,
stomach ulcers, infamed joints, rheumatic conditions, circulatory
disorders and microbial infections.
Beet Root (Beta vulgaris) – Traditionally used for its antihepato-
toxic effects and to prevent fat from depositing in the liver. It has
been found that these effects result from the high concentration
of betaine in the root extract.
Marshmallow (Althaea offcinalis) – An especially rich source of
calcium and magnesium as well as many other trace minerals.
Because of its rich mineral content and its mucilage properties,
it has been used historically to heal and soothe infamed and
irritated tissues, both internally for respiratory, digestive and
urinary conditions and topically for abscesses, boils and ulcers.
Elecampane (Inula helenium) – Traditionally used as a stimulant,
relaxant and tonic to the mucous membranes of the respiratory
and digestive systems. Elecampane has also been found to be
a rich source of inulin, a polysaccharide that may have antimi-
crobial, hypolipidemic and hypoglycemic properties. Inulin has
also shown to have possible antiosteoporotic activity, improving
mineral absorption and balance.
Borage Oil – It is a rich source of GLA (Gamma Linolenic Acid),
that is metabolized into prostaglandins which have been shown
to be inhibitory to infammatory cells. Because of these proper-
ties, Borage Oil may be effective in treating rheumatoid arthritis,
diabetes, hypertension and respiratory stress. Clinical studies
also suggest that GLA may enhance calcium absorption, reduce
calcium excretion and increase calcium deposition in the bone.
