Also known as the “Mushroom of Immortality”, Lingzhi has long been used as a health restoring herbal tonic in traditional Chinese Medicine. Lingzhi has been traditionally used to relieve fatigue, boost stamina and fight premature ageing and infections. Modern research also validate that the mushroom has amazing anti-inflammatory, stress relieving, anti-viral and anti-bacterial properties. Lingzhi is also known to support liver health, maintain hormonal balance and regulate immune functions. One of the most important feature of Lingzhi mushroom is that it works as an adaptogen. Adaptogens are herbs or natural substances that maintain natural balance in the body and enhances body’s resistance to stress, whether it is emotional, physical mental or environmental. Like all adaptogenic herbs, Lingzhi normalizes the functions of immune system, adrenal glands and all major organ systems including the heart, liver and kidneys. Lingzhi cracked spores powder When the fruiting body of Lingzhi ripens, it releases spores. These small spores contain various bioactive compounds in a powder form. These ingredients are protected by a hard cell wall that doesn’t allow effective absorption of the nutrients. We use highly advanced technology to break the hard shell and crack open the spores to extract the powder without affecting the quality of its bioactive ingredients. This process improves the bioavailability and absorption of the compounds within the spores. One of the most abundant bioactive compounds found in the Lingzhi cracked spores powder is triterpenes(ganoderic acid). These compounds fight free radicals, reduce inflammation and may also prevent cancer cells to grow. Another important function of triterpenes is their ability to reduce allergic responses by inhibiting the releases of histamine. Main Uses of Lingzhi Reishi mushroom Boosts energy Supports immune system Relieves stress and fatigue Supports liver health Reduces symptoms in asthma and bronchitis Research Research conducted in Japan revealed that large doses of Vitamin C and other anti-oxidants were capable of reducing DNA damage and the probability of cancer. [1] Vitamin C amplifies the ingestion of polysaccharides from Reishi. Polysaccharides are one of the most plentiful bioactive substances contained in Reishi and are liable for various advantages, consisting of its anti-oxidant and immune-regulating characteristics. Combining Reishi with meals that are rich in Vitamin C or Vitamin C supplements will help you maximize the advantages of Reishi supplements.

    21 reviews

Refer to label for full list of ingredients. Suggested daily dosage: 4 capsules per day with food and water for at least 3 months or as directed by your healthcare professional. Storage: Refrigerate after opening. Use within 60 days. Keep well sealed. ------------------------------ Moringa Oleifera tree is native to the Himalayas in India and Nepal but also grows in other parts of Asia, Africa and South Africa. It has been traditionally used for thousands of years (in both Ayurveda and Traditional Chinese Medicine) for its medicinal and nutritional benefits. The leaves of moringa are an excellent source of vitamins, minerals, amino acids and bioactive compounds with extraordinary antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and antidiabetic properties. It goes by many other names, such as the drumstick tree, miracle tree, horseradish tree and ben oil tree. Health Benefits of Moringa Excellent source of nutrition Protects and nourishes tissues Loaded with antioxidant compounds Boosts energy and reduces fatigue Restores hormonal balance Lowers high blood sugar levels Prevents anaemia Good for heart and joints Improves skin and hair health Outstanding nutritional profile Moringa has an incredibly high nutritional content, which means adding a moringa leaf powder supplement is a great way to energize your body and fulfil all its nutritional requirements. [1-2] This powerhouse of nutrition is often recommended as a remedy for malnutrition, and research shows that moringa powder can improve weight in malnourished children. It is a good source of vitamins (A, C, K, B1, B2, B3, B7 and folate), and minerals (calcium, iron, magnesium, potassium and zinc), making moringa a great supplement for eye health, bone health and immunity. Moringa is also a great source of protein and contains essential amino acids that you need for energy synthesis, protein synthesis and tissue repair. Moringa leaf powder can be a significant addition to a woman’s diet during pregnancy, to meet their increasing nutritional needs. Moringa supplements may also be beneficial for nursing mothers as it increases milk production and improves nutrition in milk. It is also good for menopausal women. [3-4] Moringa provides: More vitamin C than oranges More vitamin A than carrots More calcium than milk More protein than yogurt More potassium than bananas More iron than spinach Health Benefits 1. Rich in antioxidants, lowers inflammation Moringa leaf powder contains high amounts of antioxidant compounds, such as vitamin C, alkaloids, flavonoids (quercetin) and polyphenols (chlorogenic acid). Moringa leaf powder supplement can give your body a much-needed antioxidant boost and help protect your cells and tissue from oxidative damage. Your body naturally produces free radicals when it fights harmful microorganisms and during energy production, but things like pollution, processed food, sun exposure, toxin exposure, stress and chronic disease also create free radicals that leave a trail of destruction and damage throughout the body, causing cellular damage, premature ageing and inflammation. Moringa supplements can help you reduce inflammation and delay premature cellular ageing. 2. Hormonal Health Moringa leaf powder can help restore healthy hormonal balance in the body. It is well-known that your hormonal health is closely linked to your gut health. With its high fibre content, moringa is extremely beneficial for your gut and liver health.

[5] Chlorogenic acid and other compounds in moringa leaf provide natural protection against rising blood sugar levels. 4. Good for heart Moringa is loaded with phytochemicals with impressive antioxidant properties. Antioxidants reduce oxidative stress, which is known for its role in the development of chronic inflammation and heart disease. Moringa also contains high amounts of insoluble fibre that not only contributes towards good digestive health but also improves heart health by removing excess cholesterol from the body. 5. Good for anaemia As an excellent source of iron, moringa leaf powder can be used as an effective remedy to prevent and manage iron-deficiency anaemia. It also contains folate and vitamin C, that helps in iron absorption. Precautions Moringa is generally safe for long-term use and is also well-tolerated in both children and adults. However, we recommend that you first talk to your healthcare provider before taking any kind of dietary supplement. Moringa supplements may lower blood sugar levels, so those taking medications to treat diabetes should avoid taking moringa.

  • Gurmar Leaf (Gymnema Sylvestre) capsules - 500 mg | SANUSq Health

    SANUSq Health Gurmar Leaf (Gymnema Sylvestre) capsules - 500 mg | SANUSq Health

    15 reviews

    SANUSq: Gurmar Leaf (Gymnema Sylvestre) capsules - 500 mg x 100 For Healthy Blood Sugar Levels and Healthy Pancreas Main ingredients: (per capsule) 500 mg Gurmar Leaf. Refer to label for full list of ingredients. Suggested daily dosage: 4 capsules per day with food and water for at least 3 months or as directed by your healthcare professional. Storage: Refrigerate after opening. Use within 60 days. Keep well sealed. ------------------------------ Gymnema Sylvestre is a large woody vine native to the tropical regions of India, Australia and Africa. It is a reputed ayurvedic herb particularly valued for its role in the management of diabetes and in regulating blood sugar levels. In Hindi, it is also called Gurmar, a word that literally means " sugar destroyer". Gurmar leaves are loaded with various bioactive compounds, such as gurmarin, gymnemic acid and gymnemasaponins, with amazing anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-diabetic properties. The herb has been traditionally used for thousands of years to treat diabetes, jaundice, stomach ailments, constipation, malaria, asthma and urinary problems. Health Benefits of Gurmar Reduces blood sugar levels Promotes insulin production Improves insulin sensitivity Nourishes and regenerates pancreas Supresses sugar cravings Helps in weight loss Regulates cholesterol and triglycerides levels Reduces the risk of metabolic syndrome Gurmar benefits in diabetes Gurmar = Gur + Mar (Sugar + Destroyer) Chronically elevated blood sugar levels can lead to type 2 diabetes, metabolic syndrome, obesity and heart disease. Type 2 diabetes is caused by the body’s inability to either produce enough insulin or to use insulin effectively. Gurmar leaf  can help manage diabetes in a number of ways, such as regulating sugar levels in the blood, reducing sugar cravings and regenerating the pancreas – the organ that makes insulin. It is also useful in managing weight, cholesterol levels and triglyceride levels. This makes Gurmar an highly effective herb in reducing the risk of metabolic syndrome. 1. Reduces sugar cravings: Gymnemic acid, one of the active ingredients in Gurmar, temporarily blocks sugar receptors on the taste buds and reduces the ability to perceive sweet taste for a few hours. This suppression effect occurs immediately after consuming Gurmar and helps in reducing the desire to eat sugar-rich foods and in managing stubborn sugar cravings. [1] 2. Regulates blood sugar levels: The gymnemic acid in Gurmar reduces the absorption of sugar in the intestine, thus regulating fasting and postprandial (after a meal) blood sugar levels. This makes Gurmar an extremely beneficial herb for people with prediabetes. Studies show that Gurmar reduces sugar levels in the bloodstream [2], stimulates the production of insulin from the beta cells of the pancreas and improves insulin sensitivity. It is also believed highly effective in the prevention of metabolic syndrome – a group of conditions that puts one at a very high risk of heart disease, type 2 diabetes and stroke. [3] 3. Regenerates and nourishes pancreas: The bioactive compounds in the gymnema leaves nourish and repair beta cells of the pancreas that are responsible for secreting insulin in the body. 4. Helps in weight management: Gurmar leaf promotes weight loss and the active ingredients present in Gurmar leaves are known to block the absorption of fats in the intestine, which reduces weight gain. It curbs sugar cravings and reduces the intake of sugary foods. Gurmar also nourishes the central nervous system, which helps to regulate cortisol levels, reduces stress and promotes healthy sleep. All of these effects are desirable in maintaining healthy weight and reducing the risk of obesity. The herbs diuretic properties also help remove toxins from the body. 5. Works as an anti-oxidant and lowers inflammation: A wide range of bioactive compounds found in Gurmar have anti-oxidant properties. This is how Gurmar helps reduce the effects of oxidative damage in the cells and tissues, that occurs as a result of both internal and external factors. High levels of sugar circulating in the bloodstream cause further damage and inflammation in the body, which increases the risk of vascular complications and multi-organ damage in type 2 diabetes. The anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties of Gurmar help protect beta cells of the pancreas from oxidative damage and also lowers the risk of diabetes, complications associated with diabetes, obesity and metabolic syndrome. Other uses of Gurmar (Gymnema) Works as a liver tonic, helps in jaundice Good for urinary tract health Regulates lipid levels Improves digestion Useful in anemia Improves appetite Improves eye health and supports vision Precautions Not recommended for pregnant women, breastfeeding women and children Might affect blood sugar levels and could interfere with blood sugar control during and after surgery. Stop using gymnema at least 2 weeks before a scheduled surgery.

Storage: Refrigerate after opening. Use within 60 days. Keep well sealed. ------------------------------ Product Description 1,200mg of Ashwaghanda (Withania Somnifera) per serving 90 vegetable capsules per bottle Non-GMO, 100% organic and pesticide free No additives or synthetic ingredients Screw top glass bottle Relieves stress and anxiety Lowers blood sugar and fat Increases muscle and strength Improves sexual function in women Boosts fertility and testosterone levels in men Sharpens focus and memory Supports heart health What is Ashwagandha? Ashwagandha is a plant native to India, where it has been an integral part of the Ayurvedic system of medicine. It is also abundantly grown in other countries such as North Africa and Sri Lanka. The herb literally means the smell of horses as it derives its name from two Sanskrit words Ashwa (Horse), and Gandha (Smell). It is also known as Indian ginseng and winter cherry. In Ayurveda, ashwagandha enjoys the status of a highly revered herb that is used as a tonic to rejuvenate and revitalize the body and mind. It has been traditionally used in conditions such as arthritis, fatigue, anxiety, irregular sleep, asthma and low energy. This ancient herb works as an adaptogen and contains biologically active substances with anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, pain-relieving and anti-stress properties. Some of these compounds include withanolides (withaferin-A and withanone), alkaloids, steroidal lactones, glycosides and saponins.   Health Benefits in a Nutshell Eases stress and anxiety Lowers cortisol levels   Helps in insomnia Maintains blood sugar levels Improves heart health Revitalizes and rejuvenates Improves energy levels Helps build muscle Improves memory and attention Health Benefits of Ashwagandha 1. Adaptogenic properties As an adaptogen, Ashwagandha helps your body to manage stress better and to rejuvenate in tough, stressful times. Adaptogen are a rare class of herbs that help the body adapt to stress, and restores balance (homeostasis) in the body. Aptly known as û€ûBiological Response Modifiersû€û, these herbs are known for their ability to improve your body's response and resistance to stress. This class of herbs work by regulating your hypothalamus-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis and sympathoadrenal system (SAS) - your body's stress-response centre. Ayurveda and traditional Chinese medicine systems have been using adaptogenic herbs for centuries for energy, stamina and fatigue. 2. Relieves stress and anxiety Ashwagandha is widely known for its ability to calm the nervous system, thereby reducing stress, anxiety and associated symptoms such as fatigue and exhaustion. A randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study showed ashwagandha may help reduce stress, anxiety and depression. Ashwagandha also reduces cortisol levels. [1] When your body is under an immense amount of stress, it produces excess amounts of the stress hormone cortisol. Low blood sugar levels also trigger the body to release cortisol. Chronic stress can disrupt our lives by causing symptoms such as extreme fatigue, low energy levels, anxiety, insomnia, depression and body pain. It also makes us vulnerable to developing health problems such as heart disease, high blood pressure, autoimmune disorders and high blood sugar levels. Taking ashwagandha supplements can help manage your stress levels and reduce the risk of health problems that are induced by stress. 3. Helps in insomnia Ashwagandha may help improve sleep quality and reduce anxiety in patients with insomnia. Initial studies investigating the benefits of ashwagandha in insomnia show that the herb may help people sleep better, improve their sleep duration and reduce the time it takes them to fall asleep. Researchers say that biologically active compounds found in ashwagandha may be responsible for its sleep promoting benefits. In addition, ashwagandha relieves stress and relaxes the mind, an important factor is getting good sleep. 4. Lowers blood sugar levels Some human studies show that ashwagandha root powder can reduce blood glucose levels. While more research is still required, research suggests that ashwagandha improves insulin sensitivity and insulin production. A study found the effects of this ancient herb are similar to those produced by medications prescribed for type 2 diabetes. [2-3] 5. May be helpful in arthritis Withaferin A, one of the many biologically active substances present in ashwgandha, has been found to reduce inflammation and pain. This makes ashwagandha beneficial for people with arthritis. 6. Supports brain health Ashwagandha is good for brain health and improves cognitive functions such as memory, attention and concentration. Research suggests that it has neuroprotective properties. It reduces oxidative damage in the brain and prevents degeneration of neurons. Other health benefits Improves memory and focus May improve fertility in men Rich in iron, improves haemoglobin levels Supports reproductive health in women Improves sexual wellness Balances hormones Precautions Ashwagandha is considered safe for most people and is not associated with any major side effects. In some people, it may cause upset stomach or mild gastrointestinal irritation if taken on empty stomach. Take recommend dosage or as directed by your healthcare professional.  Not recommended for breastfeeding and pregnant women, and women who are trying to conceive. People taking medication for diabetes and high blood pressure should consult their healthcare professional before taking ashwagandha supplements. People with pre-existing medical conditions such as thyroid disorders, stomach ulcers and autoimmune disorders should avoid ashwagandha. Large doses can cause nausea, diarrhea and upset stomach. Do not exceed recommended dosage. References: Lopresti et al.

    SANUSq Botanique: Turmeric (Curcuma longa L) in vegetable capsules - 400 mg x 90 Anti Inflammatory Main ingredients: (per capsule)  400 mg organically grown Turmeric with Black pepper + Ginger in vegetable capsules. Refer to label for full list of ingredients. Suggested daily dosage: 3 capsules per day with food and water for at least 3 months or as directed by your healthcare professional. Storage: Refrigerate after opening. Use within 60 days. Keep well sealed. ------------------------------ Product Description 1,200mg of Turmeric (Curcuma Longa L.) per serving 90 vegetable capsules per bottle Non-GMO, 100% organic and pesticide free No additives or synthetic ingredients Screw top glass bottle Highly revered for its powerful medicinal and healing properties What is Turmeric? Turmeric is a well-known spice that comes from the plant Curcuma longa. It is native to India and other countries in Southeast Asia. In India, the root of turmeric has been used for centuries, both as a spice that adds flavour and colour to the food as well as a therapeutic herb used in digestive problems, skin disorders, cold, upper respiratory tract infections, liver disorders, wound healing and arthritis. In Ayurveda, the root of the turmeric plant is highly revered for its powerful medicinal and healing properties. Also known as the golden spice, turmeric is loaded with many bioactive compounds known as curcuminoids that are responsible for its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant benefits. Curcumin is possibly the most researched bioactive compound present in turmeric root and many high-quality studies suggest that curcumin is one of the most effective natural substances that can reduce pain and inflammation in the body, without any adverse effects. In fact, some studies have suggested that turmeric could be as effective as commonly used prescription drugs in some health conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, type 2 diabetes. Health Benefits of Turmeric in a Nutshell Works as a powerful anti-oxidant Reduces pain and inflammation Improves painful symptoms in arthritis Maintains liver health Reduces heart disease risk Supports brain health Improves skin health Curcumin Health Benefits 1.  Reduces inflammation Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and opioids are mainstay medications to treat pain and inflammation, particularly in conditions such as arthritis, migraine, backpain and inflammatory bowel syndrome. Prolonged use of these medications can cause nausea, upset stomach, stomach ulcers and increased risk of gastrointestinal bleeding. Using them over long-term can increase risk of heart disease and cause damage to liver and kidneys. Studies suggest curcumin can block the synthesis of molecules (such as NF-κB, cytokines and prostaglandins) that cause pain and inflammation. Research shows that curcumin may be more effective than traditional and commonly used anti-inflammatory medications. A number of human clinical trials have suggested that curcumin's anti-inflammatory properties can be used to manage various conditions where chronic inflammation is the main culprit. These conditions include atherosclerosis, obesity, diabetes, inflammatory bowel disease, endothelial dysfunction, and even dementia. [1] 2. Reduces symptoms in arthritis  Curcumin reduces joint inflammation and eases painful symptoms in OA, due to its anti-inflammatory effects. [2] In fact, it has been found to be as effective as ibuprofen in reducing pain and improving joint function in people with osteoarthritis (OA) of the knee. [3] Curcumin also helps in reducing the symptoms in rheumatoid arthritis, an autoimmune condition where chronic inflammation damages and destroys cartilage and the surrounding tissue. This causes painful joints with swelling, stiffness and reduced mobility. Chronic inflammation of the joint also causes joint injury and deformity. Studies show that curcumin can be safely used to manage symptoms in people with active rheumatoid arthritis (RA). In fact, it has been found to be more effective than diclofenac in reducing swelling and tenderness in the joints in RA, but with fewer side effects. [4] 3.  Supports respiratory tract health Curcumin is beneficial in cold, cough and flu-like symptoms. It also works as an anti-allergic and is known to reduce symptoms in allergic rhinitis and sinus pain. Curcumin helps manage the symptoms of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, or COPD. It is a chronic inflammatory disease that causes obstructed airways with symptoms such as difficulty in breathing, chest tightness, persistent cough and wheezing. It is mainly caused by prolonged exposure to substances that irritate and inflame the lungs, such as cigarette smoke and pollutants in the air. As a powerful anti-inflammatory substance, curcumin reduces inflammation in the airways and may also help relax the tracheal smooth muscle. Curcumin also reduces lung damage in active smokers.    4.    Helps in diabetes and pre-diabetes Curcumin in turmeric helps reduce blood sugar levels and improves insulin resistance in people with type 2 diabetes. It may even prevent the development of diabetes in pre-diabetic people, who are prone to developing full blown diabetes. Studies have revealed a number of mechanisms how curcumin may help people with diabetes. [5] For example, curcumin protects beta cells of the pancreas from oxidative damage. Beta cells are responsible for secreting insulin, a hormone that manages blood sugar levels. It also improves cholesterol levels and boosts the antioxidant status in people with type 2 diabetes. [6] Curcumin may also help prevent complications associated with diabetes, such as liver problems and diabetic nephropathy. Why black pepper is added to our curcumin product? While curcumin is a powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory compound, it not readily absorbed by the body owing to its poor bio-availability. Black pepper is known to improve the absorption and bio-availability of curcumin many times over. If you are looking to achieve the maximum benefits of curcumin that it is known for, it is best to consume curcumin with black pepper.

Storage: Refrigerate after opening. Use within 60 days. Keep well sealed. ------------------------------ Product Description 1,050mg of Bhumi Amla (Phyllanthus Niruri) per serving 90 vegetable capsules per bottle Non-GMO, 100% organic and pesticide free No additives or synthetic ingredients Screw top glass bottle Various therapeutic effects like antimicrobial, hepatoprotective, anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant, anti-cancer, anti-viral, anti-plasmodial, and diuretic What is Bhumi Amla? Bhumi Amla, or Phyllanthus Niruri, is an herb native to India, China and the rainforests of the Amazon. It is also known as bhumyamalaki, stone breaker, gale of the wind, chanca Piedra and seed-under-leaf. Bhumi Amla has been traditionally used to treat a variety of conditions such as jaundice, liver disorders, diabetes, high blood pressure, genitourinary infections, kidney stones and digestive ailments. It contains a wide range of phytochemicals - tannins, flavonoids, alkaloids, terpenes, coumarins and lignans - which are mainly responsible for its health benefits and properties. It is anti-inflammatory, anti-viral, anti-fungal, anti-bacterial, hepatoprotective (liver-protective), and analgesic (pain-relieving) in nature.   Product Description Improves antioxidant levels Protects liver Prevents kidneys stones Maintains healthy blood sugar levels Destroys harmful bacteria and viruses Prevents gastric ulcers Helps in indigestion   Health Benefits of Bhumi Amla 1. Protects liver health Bhumi Amla is one of the best herbs for your liver health. It improves liver functions and helps in liver detoxification. Bhumi Amla nourishes, protects, cleanse and rejuvenates the liver due to its antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-viral properties. It is loaded with various antioxidant phytochemicals that help protect the liver from the damage caused by free radicals. The herb is also good for spleen health. Bhumi Amla may also be useful in managing symptoms of hepatitis B, a serious infection that causes severe damage and inflammation in the liver. Animal and laboratory studies show that Bhumi Amla inhibits the virus that causes hepatitis B.  We need more human studies to understand the effects of bhumi amla on liver health, but small-scale, preliminary studies show evidence that the amazing herb helps with improving liver functions in patients with alcoholic hepatis, a condition where heavy consumption of alcohol over the years causes inflammation in the liver. A double-blind randomized controlled trial found that Phyllanthus Niruri improved total antioxidant levels in people with mild to moderate alcoholic hepatitis. It also improved appetite. [1] 2. Prevents kidney stones Bhumi Amla, or Phyllanthus Niruri, helps reduce the risk of kidney stones. Accumulation of calcium oxalate crystals is one of the leading causes of kidney stones. Bhumi Amla is diuretic in nature and flushes out excess salts (oxalate crystals). And as a diuretic, it also removes excess fluids, uric acid and toxins from the body. A study showed that P. Niruri reduced the size and number of the kidney stones in some of the participants. It also increased urinary excretion of magnesium and potassium, which makes the urine alkaline and as a result increases the amount of citrate in the urine, which in turn blocks the formation of calcium stones. [2] 3. Prevents gastric ulcers Bhumi Amla reduces pain and inflammation. It also reduces excess production of gastric acid and helps in wound healing and tissue regeneration. In addition, this herb protects the stomach lining from the damage caused by excessive acids present in the stomach. All of these properties help in managing gastric ulcers. Animal studies suggest that the abundance of bioactive plant compounds in the herb are responsible for its anti-ulcer benefits. Bhumi Amla is also helpful in mouth ulcers and canker sores. 4. Improves digestive health Bhumi Amla helps in digestion and in reducing acidity. It improves bile formation, reduces bloating and prevents constipation. It is also known to be useful in excessive thirst (polydipsia), gastritis, ulcerative colitis, and gastrointestinal infections. 5. Maintains healthy sugar levels Bhumi Amla (Phyllanthus Niruri) is a rich source of various bioactive compounds that show immense anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory qualities. Phyllanthin, one of the main bioactive components present in Bhumi Amla, shows superior anti-diabetic properties. [3] Oxidative stress and resulting inflammation increase the risk of many chronic health problems, including type 2 diabetes. Free radicals damage the beta cells of the pancreas, which produce insulin. Antioxidant compounds in Bhumi Amla help reduce the damage caused by free radicals. 6. Helps manage skin conditions Bhumi Amla purifies the blood and helps manage painful symptoms in various skin disorders such as acne, psoriasis and eczema. Other health benefits of Bhumi Amla Protects against cold and cough Prevents gall bladder stones Improves spleen health Relieves symptoms of leucorrhoea - excessive white vaginal discharge Prevents genitourinary infections Precautions Bhumi Amla can cause side effects such as drowsiness. Bhumi Amla may interact with some drugs. Those taking diuretics, cholesterol-lowering drugs, immuno-modulatory drugs, diabetes medications and blood pressure-lowering drugs should consult their healthcare professional before consuming Bhumi Amla in any form. It is not recommended for pregnant women, breastfeeding women and women who are trying to conceive. People with blood clotting disorders should consult their doctor before taking Bhumi Amla supplements. References: Sowjanya et al.

What is Brahmi? Brahmi (Bacopa monnieri) is a herb with brain rejuvenating effects and is native to India, Australia, Africa and Europe. It is also known as Bacopa and Jalabrahmi. Best known for its ability to enhance memory and focus, Brahmi has been used in Ayurveda for centuries for managing various conditions such as stress, anxiety, asthma and epilepsy. Brahmi contains a large amount of bioactive, phytochemical compounds that work in synergy to give the herb antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and memory enhancing properties. The most important bioactive compounds in Brahmi are Bacoside A and B (dammarane-type triterpenoin saponins), alkaloids, and herpestine. Health Benefits in a Nutshell Works as an anti-oxidant Reduces inflammation Improves cognitive functions Improves memory and focus Reduces ADHD symptoms Calms and strengthens nervous system Reduces symptoms of anxiety and depression Reduces stress levels Health Benefits of Brahmi 1. Antioxidant and anti-inflammatory Brahmi (Bacopa monnieri) contains many powerful antioxidant compounds that protects cells and tissues from the oxidative injury caused by free radicals. This oxidative damage is known to cause chronic inflammation and premature ageing at the cellular level. 2. Boosts brain function Brahmi is valued as one of the most effective herbs in Ayurveda for improving brain functions. It is known as a brain tonic that: Rejuvenates the brain Boosts cognitive functions such as learning, intellect, memory and focus Protects the tissues of nervous system from oxidative damage Reduces age-associated neural inflammation The leaves are a rich source of antioxidants, such as saponins (bacosides) that seem to be majorly responsible for all these benefits in boosting cognition and in strengthening overall mental health. It can be used by people of all ages to improve learning and memory. Human studies show promising results and provide evidence that Brahmi can be used to improve learning, retention, and memory. [1-3] Preliminary research also hints at its positive role in managing symptoms of Alzheimer's disease (AD). 3. May reduce ADHD symptoms Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a disorder with symptoms such as hyperactivity, inability to focus, low attention span and impulsive behaviour.

Chronic stress can aggravate as well as increase the risk of conditions such as depression, insomnia, heart disease, diabetes, obesity and asthma.

Storage: Refrigerate after opening. Use within 60 days. Keep well sealed. ------------------------------ Product Description 1,050mg of Giloy (Tinospora Cordifolia) per serving 90 vegetable capsules per bottle Non-GMO, 100% organic and pesticide free No additives or synthetic ingredients Screw top glass bottle Long used to help a wide range of issues, including fever, infections, diarrhea, and diabetes What is Giloy? Giloy is a deciduous climbing shrub with yellow flowers and heart-shaped leaves. It grows throughout India and is also found in China, Sri Lanka, Australia and Africa. In India, giloy goes by many names that reflect its powerful medicinal and therapeutic effects on the body. For example, it is known as 'Amrita', which literally means 'nectar of life' or 'root of immortality'. Another name of giloy is guduchi, which means one that protects the whole body. It is also known as giloe, which refers to the divine elixir that protects celestial beings from getting old. In a nutshell, giloy is a herb that is revered in Ayurveda for its ability to delay premature ageing and impart good health and longevity. T. cordifolia or giloy is a versatile herb and has been traditionally used for centuries in Ayurveda to treat various health conditions such as fever, infections, diabetes, diarrhea, digestive problems, skin problems, liver disorders and leprosy. While all parts of the plant have medical and therapeutic benefits, the stem is considered to possess extraordinary health benefits and is even approved for use in medicine by Ayurvedic Pharmacopoeia of India. [1] The stem is exceptionally rich in nutritional content and bioactive compounds such as alkaloids, glycosides, steroids, terpenoids, ligans, and polysaccharides. These compounds are responsible for the plant - anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, immunity-boosting, antibacterial, antiviral, anti-diabetic and antipyretic (that reduces fever) properties. Health Benefits in a Nutshell Anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory Boosts immunity Reduces fever naturally Beneficial in dengue fever, improves platelet count Anti-ageing Shows anti-allergic properties Helpful in allergic rhinitis Beneficial in asthma and respiratory infections Supports bone and joint health Regulates blood sugar levels Helpful in urinary tract infections    Health Benefits 1. Anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory Giloy is very rich in flavonoids, polyphenols and other bioactive compounds that have excellent anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. These antioxidant compounds help to fight free radicals, reduce oxidative stress, keep your cells and tissues healthy, and lower the risk of chronic degenerative diseases. In Ayurveda, giloy has been used to manage gouty arthritis and rheumatoid arthritis because of its anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving properties. 2. Boosts immunity and reduces allergy symptoms Giloy is an anti-inflammatory and an anti-pyretic herb that boosts immunity and improves the body's resistance against various kinds of infections. The herb has anti-allergic properties and it has been traditionally used for cough, cold and asthma. A study published in the Journal of Ethnobiology showed that giloy can be extremely useful in reducing the symptoms of allergic rhinitis, also known as hay fever. [2] In this study, giloy provided almost complete relief in allergic symptoms such as sneezing, nasal discharge, nasal obstruction and nasal pruritus (itching and congestion). 3. Anti-pyretic properties In Ayurveda, Giloy is considered one of the best medicines to manage various fevers and provides faster recovery in people suffering from chronic fever. It has anti-pyretic properties, which means it has the ability to reduce fever. It has been found immensely useful in dengue fever as it reduces inflammation, reduces fever, boosts immunity and also increases platelet count. 4. Regulates blood sugar levels Giloy may be useful in managing diabetes and this activity can be attributed to the presence of alkaloids, tannins, glycosides, flavonoids and saponins. Preliminary research suggests that giloy encourages the production of insulin and improves insulin sensitivity in the cells. With its anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, giloy may also help in managing diabetes associated complications such as wound healing [3], ulcers, retinopathy and kidney damage. A study in the International Journal of Research in Medical Sciences reported that Tinospora cordifolia works effectively as an add-on therapy in type-2 diabetes, without any adverse effect on the kidney and liver function tests. [4] 5. Reduces triglyceride levels Studies show that giloy may help reduce triglyceride levels [5-6]. Increased levels of triglycerides in the blood can increase the risk of heart disease, obesity, metabolic syndrome and type 2 diabetes. The stem of the giloy plant is a rich source of alkaloids (protoberberine), that help bring down triglyceride levels. Giloy also boosts the growth of healthy gut microbiota in patients with high cholesterol and triglyceride levels. [7] 6. Reduces stress and anxiety Giloy is an adaptogen, a rare class of herbs that helps the body adapt to stressors which can be emotional, physical, chemical and environmental. Giloy rejuvenates the body and increases its resistance to stress. Research shows that giloy can reduce stress, which helps in depression and in improving cognition and memory. [8] The study found that giloy increases norepinephrine (NE), serotonin and dopamine levels in the brain, the most likely mode of action behind its anti-depressant activity. 7. Removes toxins and helps in urinary infections   Giloy works as a diuretic and helps the body to get rid of toxins, which makes it useful in detoxifying blood. In addition, its ability to fight bacteria and to boost immunity means it can be used to manage urinary tract infections. Giloy also supports kidney health as it reduces the levels of urea in the blood. Other Health Benefits Helps in digestion Reduces signs of ageing Helps in respiratory disorders Supports heart health Supports liver health Precautions Giloy or Tinospora cordifolia is considered safe to consume and is not associated with any toxicity or major side effects. Not recommended for pregnant or breastfeeding women, or for women who are trying to conceive People who are taking medication for diabetes and or high blood pressure should consult their healthcare practitioner before taking giloy supplements in any form. People with pre-existing medical conditions, especially autoimmune disease like rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, or Crohn's disease, should consult their healthcare practitioner before taking giloy supplements in any form.

Storage: Refrigerate after opening. Use within 60 days. Keep well sealed. ------------------------------ Product Description 1,200mg of Gokshura (Tribulus Terrestris) per serving 90 vegetable capsules per bottle Non-GMO, 100% organic and pesticide free No additives or synthetic ingredients Screw top glass bottle What is Gokshura? Gokshura, also known as Tribulus Terrestris, is a plant that has been used for centuries in the Ayurvedic system of medicine as a urinary tonic, diuretic, and aphrodisiac. The root and fruits of gokshura have been used to manage various health problems such as urinary tract disorders, erectile dysfunction, polyuria, low testosterone levels, prostate gland problems and kidney stones. Gokshura grows in India, Africa, Australia and southern Europe. It also goes by other names such as gokhru, caltrops, cat's head, devil's weed and puncture vine. Gokshura contains a variety of bioactive compounds that work as antioxidants, and are responsible for the plant's medicinal and therapeutic actions such as anti-inflammatory, antidiabetic, diuretic, pain-relieving and anti-spasmodic. Some of these bioactive compounds include steroidal saponins, flavonoids, glycosides and alkaloids. [1-2] Health Benefits in a Nutshell Useful in urinary tract disorders Supports prostate health Boosts energy Prevents kidney stones Supports heart health Good for gout and arthritis Strengthens muscles Health Benefits of Gokshura 1. Works as an antioxidant Gokshura contains a number of phytochemicals (flavonoid, tannin, and phenolic acids) that have antioxidant properties. Your body relies on internal and external sources of antioxidants to fight oxidative stress and reduce inflammation. Chronic state of oxidative damage and inflammation in the body can lead to many serious health problems such as heart disease, diabetes, arthritis and even cancer. 2. Promotes urinary tract and prostate gland health Gokshura is a very effective herbal supplement for supporting bladder health, preventing urinary infections and nourishing the genito-urinary system. Gokshura may help relieve many problems related to urinary health such as painful and frequent urination (dysuria), urinary incontinence, urgent need to urinate even when the bladder is not full, and burning sensation during urination. It also clears obstructions in the urinary tract, cleanses the body of toxins and excess fluid, and nourishes the urinary system. Certain bioactive compounds found in gokshura have anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties and that is what make gokshura supplements beneficial in preventing urinary infections and supporting the health of your urinary tract. Gokshura supplements is helpful in managing symptoms associated with prostate gland disorders such as benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), a severe but common prostate illness that affects men over 40 and causes enlargement of prostate. BPH causes blockage in the urethra, leading to restricted or weak flow of urine and other painful symptoms such as painful urination and difficulty passing urine. It also impacts sexual functions. As a powerful diuretic, gokshura improves the production and flow of urine. This reduces the symptoms associated with an enlarged prostate. By increasing urinary output, gokshura also maintains healthy a fluid balance in the body. 3. Improves sexual wellness and libido There is growing evidence that gokshura may boost libido (sexual desire) and manage sexual problems in women and men, and particularly in post-menopausal women. [3-7] It is not yet known how Tribulus Terrestris actually works in improving sexual health and sexual functions such as libido and satisfaction but emerging evidence suggests the involvement of many modes of action, including its ability to increase hormones that regulate sexual functions.   4. For healthy kidney functions Gokshura supports kidney health in a number of ways. It works as a diuretic, which means it increases the production of urine and helps the body remove extra water and salt from the body through urine. It gets rid of excess uric acid, prevents the formation of kidney stones, and may even help in reducing the size of kidney stones. Gokshura has lithotriptic properties, which means it can help break and dissolve stones. And since it helps remove uric acid, it is effective in gout, where excess deposits of uric acid crystals in the joints cause pain and inflammation.   5. May increase athletic performance Gokshura supplements are very popular among body builders and athletes for their purported benefits in improving exercise performance and increasing muscle mass. But research in this field is not very clear. However, there is evidence that taking gokshura may reduce muscle damage and increase anaerobic performance. [8] While there is not much scientific evidence, the ayurvedic system of medicine supports that gokshura helps improve energy and vitality. Other health benefits Helpful in migraine May help in arthritis and good for gout Supports heart health May reduce blood sugar levels Reduces inflammation May help in PCOS May help in piles Improves skin health Precautions Gokshura is considered safe to consume and is not associated with any major side effects. It may cause upset stomach, abdominal cramps and rashes in some people. Not recommended for pregnant or breastfeeding women, or for women who are trying to conceive People who are taking medication for diabetes and or high blood pressure should consult their healthcare practitioner before taking gokshura supplements in any form. People with pre-existing medical conditions such as cancer, prostate disorders and kidney disorders should consult their healthcare practitioner before taking gokshura supplements in any form.

It has been found to be particularly useful in the osteoarthritis of the knee, which is mainly treated with non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID) and specific (COX-2) cyclooxygenase II inhibitors. These drugs cause severe complications including gastrointestinal bleeding with no positive effect on cartilage repair. [1] Boswellic acids, one of the main biologically active ingredients in shallaki, have pain-relieving and anti-inflammatory properties. One such boswellic acid (AKBA) blocks an enzyme 5-lipoxygenase (5-LOX) that creates inflammation in joints and other tissues. It has been found that boswellic acids also reduce degradation of glycosaminoglycans, compounds that reduce inflammation, protect cartilage from breaking down and even promote new cartilage formation. Shallaki also improves symptoms in rheumatoid arthritis, an autoimmune condition where chronic inflammation destroys bone and cartilage and causes pain, swelling and deformity in the joints. 2. Effective in inflammatory bowel disease Boswellic acids in shallaki blocks the production of enzyme 5-lipoxygenase (5-LOX), which is involved in the synthesis of leukotrienes, pro-inflammatory molecules that are directly involved in creating chronic inflammation in the gut. Inflammatory bowel diseases such as Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis are conventionally treated with the help of corticosteroids, antibiotics, immunosuppressants and biological agents. Prolonged use of these drugs can cause serious side effects. Shallaki, due to the presence of boswellic acids, reduces inflammation in the gut and this makes it useful in Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis. Reduced inflammation leads to better nutrient absorption and reduced risk of gastric ulcers.   3. Reduces symptoms in asthma Leukotrienes also play a critical role in allergies and asthma. These inflammation-promoting molecules are responsible for constricting the airway muscles and triggering asthma attacks. Shallaki with its rich boswellic acid content reduces the production of leukotrienes (by supressing 5-lipoxygenase enzyme).  Shallaki also removes excess mucus from the lungs and provides relief in the symptoms of asthma. Precautions While moderate use of Shallaki supplements is considered safe with no side effects, excessive consumption can cause gastrointestinal problems such as bloating, abdominal cramps, diarrhoea and nausea. It can also cause skin rash. Not recommended for pregnant or breastfeeding women, or for women who are trying to conceive. People who are taking immunosuppressants, or medications for depression and anxiety should avoid shallaki supplements. People with pre-existing medical conditions should consult their healthcare practitioner before taking shallaki supplements in any form. References: 1.    Yu et al.
