Nettle Leaf Extract: The Research, Health Benefits and Greenbush Quality.

It's allergy season and it is one of the worst years in many areas. If you haven't tried Nettle for treating allergies you may be missing out. It can work wonders and has a host of other health benefits besides.

Benefits of Nettle Leaf*: Allergies, Alsheimers's, arthritis, asthma, bladder problems, bronchitis, cough, bursitis, gingivitis, gout, hair growth and baldness, hives, kidney stones, MS, PMS, prostate enlargement, sciatica, tendinitis. *From "The Green Pharmacy" by Dr. James Duke.

Nettle Research and Medical Uses:

Allergies: Dr. Andrew Wiel M.D., author of Natural Health/ Natural Medicine and head of the Integrative Medicine Dept. at the University of Arizona Medical School, says he knows of nothing more effective than nettle for allergy relief. Decongestants, antihistamines, allergy shots and even prescription medications such as Allegra and Claritin treat only the symptoms of allergies and tend to lose effectiveness over a period of time. They can also cause drowsiness, dry sinuses, insomnia and high blood pressure. Nettle has none of these side effects. It can be used on a regular basis and has an impressive number of other benefits. Nettle has been used for centuries to treat allergy symptoms, particularly hayfever which is the most common allergy problem.

Prostate Enlargement: Swiss researchers R. Hartmann et al. demonstrate that extract of nettle root (Urtica dioica L., Urticaceae) partially blocked the action of two enzymes involved in the body's production of dihydrotestosterone. The in vitro (laboratory) study showed that nettle root extracts were effective in inhibiting these two enzymes (5alpha-reductase and aromatase).

One of the theories about the cause of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) suggests that the testosterone metabolite dihydrotestosterone causes or furthers the progression of prostatic enlargement. This thinking is supported by the fact that men deficient in dihydrotestosterone do not experience prostatic growth.

This theory also supports the use of nettle leaf for preventing hair loss and encouraging health hair growth since baldness is related to increased levels of dihydrotestosterone.

Nettle is now available in our new line of Bio-chelated*, alcohol free, medicinal strength herbal extracts. And in a value priced 4 oz size. These quick absorbing extracts are quickly becoming popular due to their effectiveness. Why use anything else? 4oz bottle (120ml) yields 240 medicinal doses of 500mg.

Ginger Root reseach and Medical Uses:

New Research!: Ginger root was recently the subject of a startling new research report presented at The American Association for Cancer research conference in Phoenix. In the study, ginger actually suppressed cancer cells suggesting that the herb was able to fuel apoptosis or the death of the cancer cells. Ginger has been shown to work against skin, ovarian, colon and breast cancer. But it had not been shown to halt the progression of cancer until now.

Ginger is one of the most interesting and useful herbal health tonics, and one of the easiest to use. It is a great flavoring for many foods including ginger ale and ginger snaps, and is used throughout the world. Scientists have isolated several compounds in Ginger that have specific effects against the most common family of cold viruses. It is anti-inflammatory, improving arthritis, and it is commonly used in Asia to prevent migrains and vertigo.

Ginger is a general health tonic that improves circulation, aids with digestive problems and has anti-inflammatory properties possibly more powerful than over the counter pain relievers without the side effects. It is helpful in the treatment of anything from angina and fatigue, to depression and tendinitus. One of the more promising uses is in treating nausea and motion sickness.

If you have ever experienced nausea from travel in any form there is one thing that you know for sure; you never want to experience it again. Ginger has been found to be more effective than the familiar over-the-counter remedies without the side effects. Chinese sailors chewed ginger root for sea sickness thousands of years ago.

Greenbush Bio-Chelated Extracts: Until Bio-Chelation there was simply no good way to make a potent alcohol-free extract. Greenbush alcohol free extracts begin with organic alcohol regardless of whether the final product contains alcohol or not. After finishing the first step in the plant extraction, an additional step is performed to remove the alcohol. This is done by utilizing a proprietary cold extraction process called Bio-Chelation®. Bio-Chelation® describes the cold process vacuum distillation method, which removes all the alcohol initially used to obtain the good herbal extract.

Holistically Balanced Herbal Extracts: It is important to note that a cold extraction process, as opposed to a heat extraction process, helps maintain the full spectrum, or Holistic BalanceTM of the plant's constituents in the final product. The end-result is an alcohol-free extract containing the essential properties of the complete herb in a base of vegetable glycerin and water. (Vegetable glycerin is used because it can help to bind certain plant constituents, is natural to the body, easily absorbed, tastes sweet without affecting blood sugar levels, and acts as a good solvent and carrier for the plant constituents).

When buying herbal medicines be sure to look at the ingredients. Greenbush herbs have no fillers and are never irradiated or sprayed with pesticides. In many national brands you will notice "silica" (sand!) and "ethylene glycol"(antifreeze!), among other things. Why not buy the best and get more herb for your money. Your health depends on it.
