|All About Phytoestrogens:
There is still much confusion over the use of phytoestrogenic herbs. Many people misunderstand them, thinking that they are harming themselves when using herbs that are rich in these nutrients.
Nothing could be further from the truth.
While the research gets rather technical and hard to read, good news on these nutrients continues to accumulate indicating that they improve the entire reproductive system and help to prevent breast and ovarian cancer.
Phytoestrogens. What they
are: Plant hormones similar to but weaker than human estrogens that are
believed to reduce the risk of breast and prostate cancer; also to
minimize the mood swings and hot flashes associated with menopause.
Some medical researchers believe that phytoestrogens may one day
supplant current estrogen-replacement therapy; unlike estrogen, their
downside is nil.
From THE NUTRITION BIBLE, Jean Anderson and Barbara Deskins.
Avoid Complicated Formulas. “These are the "kitchen sink" supplements,
products that have as many as 20 herbs in a tablet or capsule. It''''''''s
hard enough to get an active does of one herb into a single tablet or
capsule, much less 20 active doses of 20 different herbs. Bottom line:
They just don''''''''t work.”
|Greenbush Bio-Chelated Extracts:
Full medicinal strength in an alcohol-free extract. 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).
Yerba Mate Diet Tea Facts:
South Americans drink Mate on a daily basis where weight problems are
uncommon. Researchers think that Yerba Mate may be an important factor.
With green tea anti-oxidants a couple of cups a day may just set you on
the course to your health and weight goals.
-Yerba Mate is rich in pantothenic acid, which prevents overstimulation of the nervous system!
-Drinking 8 oz before a meal can be as effective as diet drugs in taking the edge off your appetite!
-Yerba Mate contains xanthines, chemicals that boost your metabolic rate by 10%!
-Yerba Mate has a host of anti-oxidents that boost immunity and protect against colds and flus!
show it''''''''s as powerful a cell protector as vitamin C reducing the
effects of aging as well as protecting against cancer and other disease.
say that Yerba Mate is a rich source of magnesium that has been proven
to ease anxiety: unlike the herbal formulas such as Metabolife that
reduce appetite by overstimulating the central nervous system.

Using Whole Herbs:
Why Whole Herbs?
Remember when the nutrient beta-carotene was all the rage and was thought to be the biggest thing in disease prevention? The idea came from the knowledge that foods high in this nutrient kept people healthy, preventing many diseases including cancer.
So what did scientists do? They isolated the beta-carotene to use it as a supplement.
And what happened? The research on the use of the supplement was highly problematic. A number of studies had to be stopped because the supplement was obviously doing harm.
What went wrong? Well, beta carotene was part of a synergy of nutrients in the plants. It works in concert with other elements. When we isolate it and take it separately it does not have the same effect.
The point is we don’t completely understand how all of the nutrients in a plant work. Therefore it is better to use the whole rather than trying to isolate the parts. It is hard to improve on Mother Nature.
Dr. Andrew Weil states while commenting on curcumin: My preference is for whole turmeric, rather than isolated curcumin, because I believe in the synergy of all active elements in botanical medicines.
At Greenbush we believe in using pure whole herbs, just the way nature intended.

| Immune System Help: Super Immune Boost
||Our Sambusol Super Immune Boost formula is designed specifically for a fast boost in immune system strength to fight off a cold or flu that is just getting started. It contains both forms of Echinacea, angustofolia and purpurea, as well as Elderberry (sambuca), Ginger and Miatake mushroom extracts, the most powerful immune boosting herbs.
| The Formula and the Research
Serving size: 2ml, 3x daily at the first sign of a cold, flu or other illness.
Each serving contains: 2,000mg of Extract of Echinacea angustifolia (1:1), Echinacea purpurea (1:1), Elderberry (sambuca) (1:1), Maitake mushroom fruiting body (1:1), Ginger Root (1:1), Osha root (1:1) Wild Indigo root (1:1) and Thuja leaf (1:1).
One of the basic principles of herbal medicine, stemming particularly from traditional Chinese herbal medicine, is that certain combinations of herbs develop a "synergy" or increased effectiveness. What this means is that they work better in combination than taken seperately. This formula is a perfect example. The combination of both forms of Echinacea along with the Elderberry, Ginger root, Miatake mushroom and other herbs produces a formula that supports all aspects of the immune system, stimulating and strengthening in different ways.
Numerous studies have shown the positive effects of Echinacea and Miatake mushrooms as potent activators of the various components of the immune system. Japanese studies have recently added evidence of the effectiveness of Miatake for immune disorders, cancer and other tumors.
Elderberry and Ginger aid in the immune response as well as having positive effects on any symptoms of the illnesses. Elderberry anthocyanins enhance immune function by boosting the production of cytokines. These unique proteins act as messengers in the immune system to help regulate immune response, thus helping to defend the body against disease. Ginger is well known for its ability to aid the body in fighting disease and fighting inflammation and is particularly effective in fighting the rhinoviruses that cause the common cold.
The remaining herbs, Osha, Wild Indigo and Thuja help to cleanse the blood and soothe the upper respiratory tract concentrating the power of the formula in the ears, nose and throat where most viruses and bacteria enter your body.
Sambusol Super Immune Boost Formula...
|Immune Herb Testimonial Letters
|-Thank you for the Immune boost, it arrived just in time, I had a sore throat and slight fever and started taking it on Monday, two days later and I feel much better and feel sure it will not become a full blown cold. -Val
-I am a school teacher so I am exposed to every virus that comes along. I couldn''t live without your immune formulas. Rather than half a dozen illnesses a year, it is unusual for me to even feel an illness coming on. And when I do, I just use some of the boost formula. Thank you for an excellent product. Barb.
I have never written a company before to tell them how much I liked or disliked their product regardless of how strongly I felt about them. But, because of recent experiences of mine, I felt compelled to write to you regarding 2 of your products - Sambusol Super Immune Boost and Super Immune Tonic.
I am a contract engineer and I get no paid time off - if I miss a day of work, I don''t get paid. So when this year''s cold and flu season started taking off and people all around me in the office were starting to spread the germs around, I became more than a little concerned. A close friend of mine told me about your two products - Sambusol Super Immune Boost and Super Immune Tonic - and swears by them.
He gave me a bottle of each as a gift and told me, "Trust me on this. Start taking the Tonic now, before you get sick and you probably won''t get sick. But if you do start to feel lousy, immediately switch off and use the Immune Boost. You''ll be amazed at how much quicker you''ll feel better than with any other drug or remedy you''ve ever tried." As is my nature, I thanked him and put them on the shelf in the medicine cabinet - where they stayed. You see, I am more than a little bit skeptical about a lot of things in life but one of my top things is medical stuff (my mother was a nurse for years and we lived by the standard belief that Doctor''s know what''s best for you).
Anyway, coworkers in the office began getting sick and taking many days off - not just one or two - with this year''s cold and flu bugs. To make matters worse, my wife - who is a teacher''s aide in a Kindergarten - came home feeling bad one day and started to tell me about how many kids were getting sick and not coming to school - again for many days at a time. She became sick and then, finally (I guess it was inevitable), I started getting sick. I woke up one morning with a really bad sore throat. I absolutely had to go to work because, as I said, if I don''t go in, I don''t get paid. I was just hoping that I could last long enough to make it to the weekend before it got too bad. I went to the medicine cabinet to see what I could take to get me through the day. We have the usual things in there - Cough Drops, Throat Lozenges, Sudafed, Robitussin, Tylenol, Advil, etc., etc. I immediately reached for the throat lozenges and Tylenol. As I pulled down these things, my eyes settled on your herbal extracts that my friend gave me. Going against my "better sense" I figured, "What the heck?" and opened the Sambusol Super Immune Boost. Am I ever glad that I did! I mixed the recommended amount in a little water and expected a horrible testing thing but was pleasantly surprised to find out that it really didn''t taste that bad - it sure beats the flavor of Robitussin! Since the bottle was small enough, I just tossed it in with my lunch so I could take it throughout the day (as recommended). Well, to make what''s become a long story shorter, I woke up the next day actually feeling good!! I had no sore throat after only taking the Immune Boost for one day! I continued to use the Immune Boost for a little while longer and began taking the Tonic. It''s been at least 3 months through the worst of the cold and flu season and I haven''t gotten sick again. Now I know why my friend swears by this stuff!
It wasn''t long after this that my oldest daughter started to get sick and become very run down and I made her take your Immune Boost formula, too. She made the usual teenager faces at me but I still made her start to take it. When she woke up the next day, she seemed to me to be somewhat better. When I asked her about it, she told me that although she still had some head congestion (probably from allergies which she has), she felt much better. I''m convinced that your products have made a great difference in our lives and am recommending these formulas to everyone we know!
Thanks for creating some fantastic products!!

| Elderberry Extract
| Elderberry and Sambucol:
Sambucol, made by Israeli company Razai Bar, is one of the world''s most popular immune system medicines. And with good reason: it is simply elderberry syrup and research has shown elderberry to be one of nature''s most powerful virus fighters. It can quickly reduce the severity and duration of the flu, knock out the virus that causes warts, stop colds, bacterial infections and tonsilitis, and boost immune system response. It also contains anti-oxidants that can improve vision, heart health and lower cholesterol. What''s not to like?
Sambucol is a great product but it actually is a syrup. It contains elderberry extract, but also has glucose syrup, honey and flavorings. Our elderberry is just that: elderberry extract, about three times as potent as Sambucol and without the added sugars, carbs and calories.
Greenbush Elderberry Extract is pure, alcohol-free, Bio-Chelated*, holistically balanced and full medicinal potency: 1:1 strength (1ml=1000mg).
Elderberry Facts and Research
Benefits of Elderberry*: Immune system boost, anitoxidant activity, anthocyanins, cough, cold, flu, bacterial infections, viral infections, tonsilitis, HIV, lower cholesterol, improved vision, heart health. *From "The Green Pharmacy" by Dr. James Duke.
Elderberry reseach and Medical Uses:
Immune Boost: In Karlsruhe, Germany, at the Bundesforschungsanstalt research center for food, scientists conduct studies on dietary agents containing nutrients believed to be beneficial to health. The research on Elderberry is led by the center''s director, Dr. Gerhard Rechkemmer. Rechkemmer''s investigations show that elderberry anthocyanins enhance immune function by boosting the production of cytokines. These unique proteins act as messengers in the immune system to help regulate immune response, thus helping to defend the body against disease. Dr. Rechkemmer says that he believes the further research on elderberry will reveal additional health benefits.
Antioxidant activity: In further research led by Dr. Gerhard Rechkemmer, anthocyanins found in elderberries possess appreciably more antioxidant capacity than either vitamin E or vitamin C.
Studies at Austria''s University of Graz found that elderberry extract reduces oxidation of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol. Oxidation of LDL cholesterol is implicated in atherogenesis, thus contributing to cardiovascular disease.
Sambucol Study: Sambucol® was shown to reduce hemagglutination and inhibited replication of human influenza virus type A, type B and animal strains from swine and turkeys in cell cultures. A double-blind placebo-controlled clinical study was conducted during an outbreak of influenza B Panama. A significant improvement of the symptoms, including fever, was seen in 93.3% of the cases in the Sambucol® treated group within 2 days. A complete cure was achieved within 2 to 3 days in nearly 90% of the Sambucol® treated group and within at least 6 days in the placebo group. "Inhibition of Several Strains of Influenza Virus in Vitro and Reduction of Symptoms by an Elderberry Extract (Sambucus nigra L) during an Outbreak of Influenza B Panama", Z. Zakay-Rones et al. J. Alt Compl Med 1995;1:361-369.
Sambucol Study 2: In a randomized, double blind, placebo-controlled study conducted in Norway, Sambucol® was shown to significantly reduce the duration of the flu by approximately four days. The use of rescue medication (pain relievers, etc.) was significantly less in the group receiving Sambucol® than in the placebo group. "Randomized study on the efficacy and safety of an oral elderberry extract in the treatment of influenza A and B virus infections" Thom Erling & Therje Wollan, J. Int. Med. Res., 2004;32(2):132-140.
