Product Details:
Over the last several years, there has been increasing interest in turmeric products live Avea and their medicinal properties evidenced by the large numbers of published scientific studies. Turmeric has long been used in both Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine as an anti-inflammatory, to treat digestive disorders and liver problems, and for the treatment of skin diseases and wound healing. The active ingredient in Avea is curcumin, which has been the subject of numerous animal studies demonstrating various medicinal properties. Curcumin has been shown, for example, to stimulate the production of bile and to facilitate the emptying of the gallbladder. It has also demonstrated in animals a protective effect on the liver, anti-tumor action, and ability to reduce inflammation and fight certain infections. What is Avea? Avea is an extract produced from the root of Curcuma longa, commonly known as turmeric. Nutramedix, U.S. producer of Avea, utilizes a proprietary extraction and enhancement process that makes this product far more effective than any other turmeric product available. Primary Uses Of Avea:ANTIDEPRESSANT ANTIOXIDANT ANTI-INFLAMMATORY Avea For Depression: Recent published studies have been addressing the antidepressant properties of Avea. In a study published in June 2005 in the European Journal of Pharmacology, The effects of curcumin on depressive-like behaviors in mice, two animal models of depression were analyzed. The neurochemical assays showed that curcumin produced a marked increase of serotonin and noradrenaline levels in both the frontal cortex and hippocampus in the mice. Dopamine levels were also increased in the frontal cortex and the striatum. Moreover, curcumin was found to inhibit monoamine oxidase activity in the mouse brain. Via the proprietary extraction and enhancement process utilized to produce Avea, the product has been enhanced to address the majority of the causes of endogenous depression. Patients suffering from depression report relief within a few hours to a few days after starting the use of Avea. Some of the reported properties of turmeric products like Avea are:ANTIDEPRESSANTANTIOXIDANTANTI-INFLAMMATORYCHOLECYSTOKINETICDEPURATIVEHEMOSTATICFUMITORYANTIMUTAGENICANTITUMORANTIMICROBIAL Saftey & Interaction Information:The German Commission E reports that there are no known contraindications, no known side effects and no known interactions with other drugs when using Turmeric products like Avea. In May 2005, toxicology studies were conducted on Nutramedix Avea at the University of Guayaquil, Ecuador. No toxic effects were reported even when laboratory rodents received 160,000 times the equivalent human dose. (Brand: Nutramedix)

Product Details:
Practitioners of traditional Chinese medicine consider astragalus root (Astragalus membranaceus) a true tonic that can strengthen debilitated patients and increase resistance to disease in general. In comtemporary Chinese medicine, astragalus root is also a chief component of zheng fu therapy, a combination herbal treatment designed to restore immune function in cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy and radiation therapy. The Astragalus plant is a perennial with long, fibrous roots, native to North China and Inner Mongolia, sold in both wild and cultivated forms. Chinese pharmacies sell bundles of thin astragalus root-slices that resemble tongue depressors and have a sweet taste. These are simmered in medicinal soups, the slices being removed before serving because they are too tough to chew. Research in China has demonstrated increased survival in patients receiving both herbal and Western therapies, as well as protection from the immunosuppressive effects of the latter. Studies in the West confirm that astragalus root enhances immune function by increasing activity of several kinds of white blood cells and boosting production of antibodies and interferon, the body’s own antiviral agent. Numerous scientific studies have confirmed the medicinal value of astragalus root. Immunopharmacology (1990;20) and Mutation Research (1992) found enhancement response by Astragalus extract, Journal of Ethnopharmacology (1990) reported a hepatoprotective effect and indicated that ethanol extract of Astragalus alleviates liver injury, Archivos del Instituto de Cardiologia de Mexico (1993) announced the vasodilator and antihypertensive properties of Astragalus extract. Since the 1950s, scientists have discovered the potential use of Astragalus for treatment of cancer (The Journal of Urology 1991;146:486-490). Investigations conducted by institutions for cancer research indicated that in areas where selenium content in foods is high, rate of stomache cancer, liver cancer, lung cancer, bladder cancer, colon cancer, etc, is low. Selenium content prevents cell damage caused by hydrogen peroxide and oxidative lipids. Antioxidation effect of selenium is 500 times that of vitamin E. Recently the immunity enhancing properties of Astragalus have led medical scientists to use it in experiments of AIDS treatment (Virology, March 1992). (Brand: Alternative Health & Herbs)
