Sambusol Super Immune Boost Formula

This 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).

Synergistic Blend

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 separately. 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.

Lemon Balm Extract

Lemon Balm is a very popular and widely used herb in Europe. It is just now coming into use in the U.S. It is a powerful anti-viral herb as well as a relaxant and mental stimulant, and the top treatment for herpes.

Lemon Balm Extract: The Research, Health Benefits and Greenbush Quality.

Benefits of Lemon Balm*: Amenhorrhea, anxiety, chronic fatigue, cold sores, Graves' disease, headaches, Herpes virus, hypothyroidism, insomnia, mental clarity and concentration, relaxation, shingles and viral infections. *From "The Green Pharmacy" by Dr. James Duke.

Lemon Balm reseach and Medical Uses:

Mental Clarity, Concentration and Relaxation: Lemon balm is widely used to treat anxiety and insomnia in Europe. It reduces anxiety and stress and eases sleep disorders. Recently it produced an unexpected result in a research study: it greatly increased the ability to concentrate and perform word and picture tasks.

Helpful for Homework? In a study of lemon balm at Northumbria Univeristy in England students were tested for weeks while using either Lemon balm or a placebo. The students did significantly better on the tests after taking Lemon balm and continued to post improved scores for up to six hours after taking the herb. The students taking Lemon balm were noted to be calmer and less stressed during the tests. (From Prevention Magazine Sept. 2004)

Herpes and Anti-viral Properties: Lemon balm is commonly used in Europe to treat cold sores, herpes and shingles as well as other viral afflictions. Studies have shown a significant reduction in the duration and severity of herpes. Researchers also noted a "tremendous reduction" in the frequency of recurrence. Studies of Lemon balm and herpes have yielded more positive results than the use of the pharmaceutical drug Zovirax.

Insomnia/Anxiety: Several studies have used Lemon balm, and Lemon balm/Valerian combinations to treat stress, anxiety and insomnia. The studies have shown improved sleep patterns and reduced stress and anxiety. In one study a Lemon balm/Valerian combination was found to be as effective as the prescription drug Halcion.

Thyroid and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome: Lemon balm is used in Europe for treating thyroid problems and has shown an ability to regulate thyroid hormone production. This ability, along with the herbs anti-viral characteristics have made the herb useful in the treatment of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.

Elderberry (Sambuca) Extract

Elderberry (Sambucus) 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.

Elderberry Extract: The Research, Health Benefits and Greenbush Quality.

Benefits of Elderberry*: Immune system boost, antioxidant activity, anthocyanins, cough, cold flu, bacterial infections, virul 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.

Bio-Chelation and Our New Extracts

The Greenbush line of pure quality, medicinal strength extracts is expanding. The alcohol free, holistically balanced extracts are a full 1:1 potency, meaning that 1ml is equal to 1000mg of herb. And the Bio-chelation process allows us to offer these at a value price.

Full medicinal potency, pure quality, value pricing. Why use anything else?

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.

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).
