Magnesium caprylate: A medium chain fatty acid that has been shown to improve the balance of healthy intestinal microflora and to soothe the gastrointestinal tract. Caprylic acid (as magnesium caprylate) is a natural, highly effective herbal supplement that produces an antifungal effect in the body. It is also known to be an efficient way of killing fungal Candida and other fungus and yeast infections, while not inhibiting bacteria. Caprylic acid does not kill yeast, but instead controls yeast overgrowth by interrupting the growing and duplicating processes. It dissolves the membrane of the yeast cells that cause thrush, vaginal yeast infections and jock itch. This aids in reducing the level of intestinal yeasts. Magesium caprylate is best taken in conjunction with a low yeast and low sugar diet.
Shiitake mushroom powder: Shiitake mushroom (Lentinula edodes) has a history of medicinal use spanning millennia in parts of Asia. Today it is classed as a "medicinal mushroom" because it is used and studied as a possible treatment for diseases. Current research is discovering that extracts of this mushroom have immune system regulating, antibacterial, antiviral, anti-parasitic and blood clot inhibiting properties. The health benefits it provides have been supported by rese and clinical trials conducted worldwide for many treatments, including those involving cancer. The lentinan in shiitake
mushrooms has been found to possess anti-tumour properties, to be powerfully antiviral and is used as an intravenous anticancer agent in some countries. Active hexose correlated compound (AHCC) is a compound isolated from shiitake. In Japan, AHCC is the second most popular complementary and alternative medicine used by cancer patients. Research has also shown that AHCC may increase the body's resistance to pathogens as shown in experiments with the influenza virus, West Nile encephalitis virus, and bacterial infection.
Chicory root: A rich source of natural chemicals (including tannins) that have become the focus of anti-parasitic research in recent years. In a study published in "Parasitology Research" in 2011, researchers from Cairo University found that extracts of chicory killed parasites when they were tested with the plant in vitro. Taking chicory root extracts regularly is considered to have a beneficial effect on intestinal parasites in humans, ridding the digestive tract of harmful organisms. The compounds found in chicory root extract are toxic to parasites and it is believed that lactones give chicory its anti-parasitic attributes.
Garlic powder extract: Garlic (Allium sativa) is a broad spectrum antibiotic, capable of fighting infection and killing a wide variety of fungi (more than 60), bacteria (more than 20), viruses, protozoa, parasites and amoebas. This is largely because of its active constituents, allicin and ajoene. Once garlic is chopped or crushed, allicin is formed. It has antibacterial, antifungal and anti-parasitic activity, which is one of the main reasons that garlic has traditionally been used in enemas to rid the colon of intestinal parasites. Ajoene is known to have effective broad-spectrum antimicrobial properties, helpful to prevent yeast infection (Candida albicans) and treating athlete's foot, for example. Studies have shown garlic to be effective against Entamoeba histolytica, H. pylori, Staphylococcus aureus, roundworm, tapeworm, threadworm, hookworm, Giardia lamblia,
Trypanosoma, Plasmodium and Leishmania. Garlic has a history of killing parasites and controlling secondary fungal infections, detoxifying while gently stimulating elimination and has antioxidant properties to protect against oxidation caused by parasite toxins.
Bentonite clay powder: Bentonite is a form of aluminium phyllosilicate derived from volcanic ash and consisting mostly of montmorillonite or other smectite minerals. Although used for medicinal purposes for thousands of years due to its physical properties, in recent years bentonite has been increasingly used by practitioners of alternative medicine as an internal cleanser to help prevent and alleviate various health problems because it is a natural anti-parasitic. It is highly absorbent (it absorbs nearly 5x its weight of water and at full saturation occupies a volume of 12 to 15x its dry bulk weight) and works by binding to toxins and organisms in the body, such as bacteria (including E. coli, PRSA and MRSA) and parasites, and helps the body to remove them through waste. Ingesting bentonite clay is recommended as part of a regular colon cleansing regimen. The user will benefit from greater assimilation because of the clay's action as an intestinal cleanser and gastrointestinal regulator. As the body detoxifies, it is in a better position to more efficiently assimilate the nutrients it needs.
Pumpkin seed: Traditionally, pumpkin seeds (Curcubita pepo) have been used as a remedy for parasites, including tapeworms and roundworms. Laboratory studies have now demonstrated that curcurbitin, an amino acid in pumpkin seed, has anti-parasitic and anti-fungal activity. Human trials in China show that pumpkin seed is helpful to people suffering from schistosomiasis, a severe parasitic disease occurring primarily in Asia and Africa that is transmitted through snails. Other human studies in China and Russia have demonstrated the effectiveness of pumpkin seed against tapeworm infestations.
Grapefruit seed: Not to be confused with grape seed extract or grapefruit extract, grapefruit seed (citricidal) has been proven to be a highly effective, natural broad spectrum antibacterial, anti-parasitic and anti-fungal. In fact, it has been proven to be effective against over 800 strains of viruses and bacteria, 100 strains of fungi, plus several single-celled parasites - no other antimicrobial can make such claims! The antimicrobial activity of grapefruit seed extract is in the way that it changes the body of the pathogen; it stops the intake of amino acids into the pathogen and causes its walls to leak, killing it off. Despite destroying harmful intestinal parasites, grapefruit seed does not significantly harm normal bowel flora.
Cayenne extract: Cayenne is an ideal addition to any treatment plan to kill parasites. The volatile oil, capsaicin, within cayen gives the herb its “hotness” and helps to keep the body warm and strong. This in turn weakens parasites, because they do not like a warm environment. A member of the Capsicum genus, cayenne is known for assisting with assimilation, healing,
improved circulation, cleansing, indigestion, urinary tract health, colds, flu, digestive disorders and strengthening internal organs, particularly the heart muscle.
Fenugreek seed: Fenugreek (Trigonella foenum-graecum ) is a bitter, medicinal herb that is loaded with antioxidants and has laxative, anti-parasitic and anti-tumour effects. It also increases milk flow, stimulates the uterus, soothes irritated tissues, lowers fever, reduces blood sugar, improves digestion and promotes healing. It stimulates the immune system and aids in removal of toxins from the body through lymph nodes. The seeds (Methi), in particular, are rich in lipids, protein, protease inhibitors, alkaloids, mucilaginous fiber, phosphorus, iron, calcium, niacin, vitamin C, selenium and various other nutrients. They have stimulant, anti-parasitic, anti-inflammatory, aphrodisiac, expectorant, laxative, hepatoprotective and diaphoretic propertie believed that the seeds reduce fatty tissues, thereby aiding in natural weight loss.
Olive leaf extract: An excellent antimicrobial against many species of virus and bacteria, olive leaf is a bitter substance produced by the olive tree, but eliminated from olives once they are cured. For about 4,000 years, countries of the Mediterrane as well as those bordering, have chopped up olive leaves in liquid or salad form to prevent and treat parasitic infections. Olive leaf is also effective against fungi, molds, worms and bacteria and can be used for yeast infections. It even proved to be superior to quinine for treating malaria, but not as easy to administer, so quinine became the preferred treatment. Studies in the 1960s confirmed that olive leaf extract has the ability to counteract the malaria protozoa.
Cinnamon bark powder: Has anti-spasmodic, anti-microbial, carminative, anti-diarrhoea, anti-worm and antisept properties. Cinnamon bark helps to counteract flatulence and diarrhea. It is used for a weak digestive system, vomitin hyperacidity, to promote secretion of gastric juices, irritable bowel, summer diarrhea, influenza and colds. Suppress gro of numerous micro-organisms such as Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus and Candida albicans.
Cloves powder: Cloves contain one of the most powerful germicidal agents in the herb kingdom. They help to kill off ntestinal parasites and act as an anti-microbial agent against fungi and bacteria.
Contains milk or milk products including lactose (from the magnesium caprylate).
Not advisable for people taking warfarin or those with a citrus allergy (contains grapefruit seed extract). Contains no added excipients, gluten, wheat, sugar, additives, artificial colourings or yeast.
