GREEN TEA - Powder (113 Grams)
Current interest in green tea in the United States has
focused mainly on its cancer preventive properties rather than
on its flavor, which may be an acquired taste.
Japanese researchers were the first to report that people
living in an area where green tea was an important crop were only
half or even a fifth as likely to develop cancer as those in an area
that did not grow tea. There seems to be an inverse relationship
between drinking tea and developing cancer of the digestive tract
or urinary system. One recent epidemiological study in Japan showed
that men who drank ten or more cups of green tea daily had a significantly
lower risk of lung, liver, colon, or stomach cancer.
EGCG seems to be responsible in large measure for inhibiting
the growth of cancer cells and mopping up free radicals that can damage
healthy cells. It also appears to work on the heterocyclic
amines that form when meat, poultry, or fish is grilled and keeps
them from initiating cancerous changes. One Chinese study
suggests that green tea can counteract the cancer-promoting effects
of female hormones on breast tissue. Further research on this possibility
The polyphenols in green tea are thought to be responsible
for its chemopreventive activity. Curcumin seems to act synergistically
with green tea in preventing mutations and tumor development.
EGCG also has antibacterial and antiviral activity and stimulates
the immune system to produce interleukin-1 and tumor necrosis factor.
These and possibly other actions may explain the capacity of EGCG
to reduce periodontitis, and this in turn may explain how green tea
helps minimize bad breath. The fluoride found in tea
leaves may help explain why tea drinkers are less prone to dental
caries. Tea can stain dental enamel, however.
Green tea drinkers are reported to have lower total
cholesterol than those who do not imbibe. A special type of tea,
Tao Cha, is associated with this benefit and is used in Chinato treat
elevated cholesterol. More recent research has cast some
doubt on this finding, however. In Japan, where the first studies
were undertaken, men who drink green tea are more likely to eat a
traditional Japanese diet low in fat, while in Norway and Israel,
people who choose tea are not drinking unfiltered coffee, a beverage
that can elevate cholesterol levels. Prospective trials
have not shown that tea lowers blood lipids. Because tea discourages
oxidation of low-density lipoprotein, however, it may help protect
against atherosclerosis. Both green tea and Earl
Grey counteracted platelet clumping and prevented coronary blood clots
in a dog experiment, but scientists have not been able to demonstrate
any anti-platelet effect in humans.
Topical application of EGCG from green tea in animal
experiments stopped the development of skin cancer after exposure
to a carcinogenic chemical. Polyphenols from green tea
can also protect skin from ultraviolet radiation(UV-B) damage,
acting essentially as a natural sunscreen. Because of
its high tannin content, tea has traditionally been used to treat
The caffeine content in tea has a stimulant effect on
the brain and can increase alertness.
The theophylline content can aid bronchodilation in
mild cases of asthma, and the astringent properties of the beverage,
applied topically, have been used in China for skin problems.
Dulse is rich in iron and protein (22% more protein than chickpeas, almonds
or whole sesame seeds).

Kudzu Vine is a wild plant, that grows in many Asiatic countries. From
ancient times to the present days, the root of Kudzu has been commonly
used in Far Eastern culture as a food, rich source of starch and as an
effective remedy in natural medicine. It helps digestion, reduces blood
pressure, treats colds, intestinal ailments and ALCOHOLISM with all of
its resulting health problems.
KUDZU - Powder (113 Grams)
Starch derived from Kudzu Root contains a high amount of iron,
a fair portion of calcium and phosphorus, and a little sodium. Interestingly,
it has more calories per gram than honey, but unlike honey,which is
quick burning sugar, Kudzu is a long sustaining source of energy in
When Kudzu is present in a diet, it prevents one from falling into
an alcohol addiction. A recent research made in Medical School
of Harvard confirmed that Kudzu reduces craving for alcohol as much
as 90%. Daidzin, isoflavone is a compound of Kudzu that causes repression
of alcohol consumption. Presently many others Universities work onthat
issue, like Southern Illinois University Carbondale and University of
North Carolina at Chapel Hill. The extraordinary results of the use
of Kudzu Root gives a hope to many who suffer from an alcohol addiction
and to their families.
Parts used and where grown
Kudzu is a coarse, high-climbing, twining, trailing, perennial vine.
The huge root, which can grow to the size of a human body, is the source
of medicinal preparations used in traditional Chinese medicine and modern
herbal products. Kudzu grows in most shaded areas in mountains, fields,
along roadsides, thickets, and thin forests, throughout most of China.
The root of another Asian species of kudzu, Pueraria thomsonii, is also
used for herbal products.
In what conditions might kudzu be supportive?
• alcohol withdrawal support
• high blood pressure
Historical or traditional use
Kudzu root has been known for centuries in traditional Chinese
medicine as ge-gen. The first written mention of the plant
as a medicine is in the ancient herbal text of Shen Nong (circa A.D.100).
In traditional Chinese medicine, kudzu root is used in prescriptions
for the treatment of wei, or “superficial,” syndrome (a disease that
manifests just under the surface—mild, but with fever), thirst, headache,
and stiff neck with pain due to high blood pressure.1 It is also recommended
for allergies, migraine headaches, inadequate measles eruptions in children,
and diarrhea. It is interesting to note that the historical application
for drunkenness has become a major focal point of modern research on
kudzu. It is also used in modern Chinese medicine as a treatment for
Kudzu root is high in isoflavones, such as daidzein, as well as isoflavone
glycosides, such as daidzin and puerarin. Depending on its growing conditions,
the total isoflavone content varies from 1.77-12.0%, with puerarin in
the highest concentration, followed by daidzin and daidzein.2
As is the case with other flavonoid-like substances, the
constituents in kudzu root are associated with improved microcirculation
and blood flow through the coronary arteries. A widely publicized 1993
animal study showed that both daidzin and daidzein inhibit the desire
for alcohol.3 The authors concluded that the root extract may in fact
be useful for reducing the urge for alcohol and as treatment for alcoholism.
This has not yet been proven in controlled clinical studies with humans.
How much should I take?
The 1985 Chinese Pharmacopoeia suggests 9-15 grams per day of kudzu
root.4 In China, tablets of the standardized root (10 mg of weight per
tablet equivalent to 1.5 grams of the crude root) are used for angina
pectoris. This would equate to 30-120 mg two to three times per day.
Kudzu tincture can be used in the amount of 1-2 ml taken three to five
times per day.
Are there any side effects or interactions?
At the dosages recommended above, there have been no reports of kudzu
toxicity in humans.
Vaccinium myrtillus L. is known by many names including bilberry,
whortleberry, and huckleberry. This and many similar species are native
to Europe and most of the United States. The blue/black berry is known
for its edibility as well as for its medical action. The major medicinal
compounds in bilberries are the flavonoids, especially the anthocyanosides.
These compounds are similar to those found in grapes. The actions of concentrated
extracts have been shown to be effective in stabilizing collagen, normalizing
capillary permeability, preventing platelet aggregation, and relaxing
smooth muscles among other things.
BILBERRY - Powder (113 Grams)
The clinical applications of bilberry extracts have been in two major
areas: the eyes and the joints. Billberry extracts were
shown to be effective in improving night-time vision, and have been
used in the prevention and treatment of glaucoma and have been used
in cases of cataracts and macular degeneracy.
The ability of the flavonoids found in bilberry to stabilize collagen
as well as their potent antioxidant activity make them very good agents
for joint care. They have been used successfully in both osteoarthritis
as well as rheumatoid arthritis. The uses for bilberry extracts
will continue to increase as we understand its flavonoids more completely.
Removing toxins from the body is the #1 priority. Six drops or pellets
