Blueberries increase circulation to the capillaries of the eyes, which results in improved eyesight and reduced oxidation in these tissues. It is useful for preventing diabetic retinopathy as well as treating night blindness, macular degeneration and cataracts. Blueberry concentrate is also beneficial for strengthening all other capillaries, arteries and veins. It can also be used for reducing capillary fragility and permeability in conditions such as varicose veins. An antioxidant/anti-inflammatory, it reduces free radical caused inflammation and histamine release (allergies). Recent studies in animals have shown that as little as 1/2 cup of Blueberries per day can reduce symptoms of aging (memory loss, cognitive and motor impairment) and may help to prevent cancer, heart disease and arthralgias. Blueberries, like other Vaccinium species (Bilberry, Huckleberry, Cranberry) contain flavonoids such as anthocyanins which are potent antioxidants. Blueberries had the highest antioxidant capacity of 40 fruits and vegetables tested by the USDA. These berries have a powerful ability to protect against free radical damage, inhibit enzymes which may promote cancer, reduce histamine production and act as an anti-inflammatory nutrient to connective tissue*.

Magnesium is an essential nutrient required to maintain a healthy body. Research shows that 72% of adults in America do not receive the recommended daily intake (RDI) for magnesium. It is often thought that magnesium needs can be easily met through a daily multiple vitamin, but multiple vitamins containing magnesium typically only consist of 10% of the magnesium required daily. The inadequate intake of magnesium can lead to many health consequences due to magnesium's diverse roles in the body. The importance of magnesium includes calcium utilization, bone and heart health. In addition, magnesium has been shown to support muscle discomfort, relax nerves and help improve sleep.

Alpha-lipoic acid was discovered in 1951, and has long been recognized as a coenzyme needed to break down sugar for energy production. It was not until 1988 that researchers realized that not only is alpha-lipoic acid itself an antioxidant, but the body converts some of it to dihydrolipoic acid, which possesses antioxidant properties. The body is capable of making some alpha-lipoic acid, but in certain conditions, the body may be unable to make enough.

This organic Garlic supplement is carefully processed to retain many of the important compounds that are naturally found in raw Garlic.

An Egyptian medical text dating back to 1,500 BC, documents the use of Garlic for hypertension, worms, and tumors. Well preserved cloves of Garlic were found in the tomb of King Tutankhamen. Since then, it has been revered by many cultures throughout the world. Currently, Garlic is one of the most widely used herbal compounds in the United States, with ongoing research in several areas related to cardiovascular health, oncology and infectious disease (which is still preliminary and not yet clinically proven).

The sulfur compounds are especially important, and have been the focus of many clinical trials suggesting their use in supporting cardiovascular health. Its mechanism of action appears to be related to multiple sulfur compounds and not only to allicin as was previously believed. The sulfur compounds are indicated in this product by the natural Garlic odor. No fillers or masking agents have been added.

Organic Gymnema Leaf

Avid and thorough Indian research is working hard to quantify and validate the sugar balancing properties of Gymnema. The Benefits of Gymnema

  • Traditionally known as the "Destroyer of Sugar" in Ayurvedic Hindi*

The leaf on this plant has been helping people reduce their desire for sugar for over 2,000 years.*

Commonly known as: cowplant

Parts Used & Where Grown

Gymnema sylvestre is a woody climbing plant that grows in the tropical forests of central and southern India. The leaves are used in herbal medicine preparations. G. sylvestre is known as "periploca of the woods" in English and meshasringi (meaning “ram’s horn”) in Sanskrit. The leaves, when chewed, interfere with the ability to taste sweetness, which explains the Hindi name gurmar—“destroyer of sugar.”

How it Works

The hypoglycemic (blood sugar-lowering) action of gymnema leaves was first documented in the late 1920s.1 This action is attributed to members of a family of substances called gymnemic acids.2,3 Gymnema leaves raise insulin levels, according to research in healthy volunteers.4 Based on animal studies, this may be due to regeneration of the cells in the pancreas that secrete insulin,5,6 or by increasing the flow of insulin from these cells.7 Other animal research shows that gymnema can also reduce glucose absorption from the intestine,8 improve uptake of glucose into cells, and prevent adrenal hormones from stimulating the liver to produce glucose, thereby reducing blood sugar levels.9,10

Other animal studies have shown that extracts of gymnema leaves can lower serum cholesterol and triglycerides and prevent weight gain,11,12,13,14 but these effects have not been tested in humans. When placed directly on the tongue, gurmarin, another constituent of the leaves, and gymnemic acid have been shown to block the ability in humans to taste sweets.15,16
