|Herbal fads come and go, and we always check them out to see if there is any actual research or evidence to back up the claims being made by these large companies hyping the herbs. In most cases it turns out that the main benefit is to the company that is selling the product at absurd prices. And this is the case with Acai berry as well.
Acai became a fad when it was catapulted to fame on the Oprah Winfrey show, (you would think Oprah would have someone on staff check the stuff out first). The claim was that it melted away pounds without the dieter having to put forth any effort at all, (always a popular angle). Unfortunately there are no studies to support this claim, and many of the acai products contain high levels of caffeine, added with the purpose of giving the formula some discernible effects. But why pay $80 for a month's supply of caffeine? Bottom line: save your money. Try a little yerba mate tea
($12.95) and get the caffeine effect without the jitters.

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).

As Seen On TV....
The Discovery Channel has been featuring an interesting show called "The Myth Busters" and they were doing a piece on seasickness remedies, including wrist straps, magnets, pressure points, pharmaceutical drugs, over-the-counter drugs, and ginger root.
The guys on the show rigged up a seasickness chair that rotated and bounced, causing motion sickness, not our idea of a good time, but they are well paid for their shenaigans. We watched as they applied various motion sickness devices and spun around until they got sick. We watched with particular interest as they tested the ginger root. They spun and spun and finally stopped, feeling fine. In fact, at the end of the show, the team concluded that ginger was the only viable choice. The drugs and worked as well, but left them feeling, well, drugged. The ginger had not side effects.
We have known about the ginger cure for motion sickness for a long time. We have used it ourselves many times. But it was still nice to see it validated on a national television show.
We recommend Ginger Root for everything and believe that everyone should be using the herb on a daily basis. It is possibly the best herb in the world for general health with research showing its ability to prevent cancer, treat arthritis pain, and treat vertigo, migrains and motion sickness. Improving your general health and energy would be enough to recommend it for flu season, but it has also been shown to have compounds that are very effective in combating the most common cold and flu viruses.

|Healthy Hair Formula
Ever wonder how those shampoo models in the television commercials get their hair to be so full and beautiful? Rich, lustrous, beautiful hair is from proper hair nutrition, the stimulation of the endocrine system and, in males, the prevention of the conversion of testosterone into DHT.
Hair Loss and DHT
Evidence suggests that hair loss and thinning may be mainly caused by dihydrotestosterone, or DHT, a powerful hormone in your body that is converted from testosterone. DHT kills scalp follicles and they produce short, fine, non-pigmented (white) hair instead of the normal health hair resulting in a condition called androgenetic alopecia, or AGA. About 50% of people, both men and women, will experience a degree of AGA by the time they reach the age of 50.
Herbs that can stop the conversion of testosterone into DHT and stimulate new hair growth have been in use for centuries for hair health. The most effective include Fo-ti, Saw palmetto and Nettle. We have combined them in an easy to use and inexpensive formula below. They are also available individually. See the link below for information and ordering.
The Herbs: Fo-ti, Nettle, Saw Palmetto
Fo-ti (He shou wu) Alcohol-free Extract:
Benefits of Fo-ti:
In China, where it is called He shou wu, Fo-Ti is said to possess almost magical rejuvenating properties. The elderly use it to help maintain hair color, preserve youthfulness, and restore fertility and virility. Among the younger generation Fo-Ti is often used by athletes to support stamina and endurance and is suggested to shorten recovery time after a work out. It contains glycosides that account for the herb's use as a adaptogen or herb used to improve general health and vitality. He shou wu roots contain compounds that support immune, nervous and hormonal systems and stimulate the endocrine system.
The Fo-ti Story:
Li Chung Yun, a famous Chinese herbalist who reportedly lived to be 256 years old, used Fo-Ti on a daily basis. This herb is thought to have been responsible for both his long life and his legendary sexual prowess, (he was said to have had 24 wives). In another Chinese legend Fo-ti was thought to be responsible for returning natural black color to a previously gray-haired man- He Shou Wu means "black haired Mr. He."
Thankfully, we have a little more to go on than folk medicine legends. Modern research indicates that this herb contains an alkaloid that has rejuvenating effects on the nerves, brain cells and endocrine glands. It stimulates a portion of the adrenal gland and helps to detoxify the body. Hair health, energy and sexual vigor are the products of this rejuvenation.
This herb has been used for thousands of years in China and is a popular and powerful sexual stimulant. It is becoming more well known in the U.S. through herbal formulas for sexual stimulation and hair health and is the main ingredient in many of the current formulas for hair health and restoration. But why pay big money for those formulas? The pure herb works better.
Nettle Leaf Extract:
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:
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.
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.
Recommended Uses: Baldness and hair loss, breast enhancement, digestion, energy and body building, erections problems, inhibited sexual desire, prostate enlargement, prostatitis, thyroid and urinary tract health. From "Prescription for Natural Healing" Balch and Balch, "The Green Pharmacy" Dr. James Duke, "Natural Health Bible" Bratman and Kroll, "Saw Palmetto Notes" Frontier Co-op.
Recommendations and Research* Saw palmetto berries have been used for centuries by native American cultures both as food and as medicine. The first uses of the berries were as a nutritive tonic to improve strength and energy, sexual vitality and youthful vigor. The berries contain fatty acids and sterols that interact with human hormones in a variety of ways, most particularly in preventing the conversion of testosterone into DHT resulting in its use for treating prostate enlargement and baldness.
Saw palmetto is now best known for its ability to promote prostate health and sexual vigor, but was widely used in the past for breast health and enhancement in women. This was most recently noted in the book "The Green Pharmacy" by Dr. James Duke.
Safety Issues: Saw palmetto, a commonly eaten food, has been found safe and non-toxic, even in very high doses, in a wide variety of studies. There are no known drug interactions.

Dandelion Research and Medical Uses:
Dandelion has a long history of use as a blood cleanser and liver function stimulator. It is used to reduce cholesterol and uric acid, and to improve the function of the kidneys, pancreas, spleen and stomach. It is thought to be useful in the prevention of age spots (liver spots) and is helpful in weight loss due to the improvement in liver function.

-Dandelion contains taraxacin which stimulates bile flow and improves the digestive organs.
-Dandelion contains pectin, a type of fiber that relieves constipation, lowers cholesterol and binds to toxins, removing them from your system.
-Dandelion contains inulin which is known to help balance blood sugar levels. Because this and the liver improvement, dandelion is considered useful in the treatment of diabetes.
-According to naturopathic physician Mark Stengler, N.D., the perfect herbal formula for high blood pressure would be dandelion, hawthorn and valerian.
-Dandelion contains taraxerol and taraxasterol, compounds that help to balance hormone levels. Since the liver is also involved in hormonal balance dandelion is quite helpful in treating PMS and menopausal symptoms.
