Ultra Botanicals Ginkgo Biloba Extract (Ginkgo biloba) What is Ginkgo Biloba? Ginkgo biloba has been used medicinally for thousands of years.Ginkgo is one of the oldest living tree species. A single tree can live as long as 1,000 years and grow to a height of 120 feet. Its leaves are among the most extensively studied botanicals in use today. In the United States and Europe, ginkgo supplements are among the best-selling herbal medications. Ginkgo consistently ranks as a top medicine prescribed in France and Germany. Ginkgo has been used in traditional medicine for circulatory disorders and as a memory enhancer.Although Chinese herbal medicine has used both the ginkgo leaf and seed for thousands of years, modern research has focused on the standardized Ginkgo biloba extract (GBE), which is prepared from the dried green leaves. This standardized extract is highly concentrated and seems to be clinically more effective in treating health problems (particularly circulatory ailments) than the non-standardized leaf alone. More than 40 components isolated from the ginkgo tree have been identified, but only two are believed to be responsible for the herb's medicinal effects: flavonoids and terpenoids. Flavonoids are plant-based antioxidants. Laboratory and animal studies have shown that flavonoids protect the nerves, heart muscle, blood vessels, and retina from damage. Terpenoids (such as ginkgolides) may improve blood flow by dilating blood vessels and reducing the stickiness of platelets. Antioxidants are substances that scavenge free radicals -- compounds in the body that damage cell membranes, tamper with DNA, and even cause cell death. Free radicals occur naturally in the body and grow in number as we age. But environmental toxins (including ultraviolet light, radiation, cigarette smoking, and air pollution) can also increase the number of free radicals. Free radicals are believed to contribute to health problems including heart disease and cancer as well as cognitive disorders and other forms of dementia. Antioxidants such as those found in ginkgo may help neutralize free radicals. Clinical studies suggest that ginkgo may provide the following benefits: • Improvement in thinking, learning, and memory (cognitive function) • Improvement in activities of daily living • Improvement in social behavior • Fewer feelings of depression Intermittent Claudication: Because ginkgo improves blood flow, it has been studied in people with intermittent claudication (pain caused by reduced blood flow to the legs). People with intermittent claudication have a hard time walking without feeling extreme pain. Memory Enhancement: Ginkgo is widely touted as a "brain herb." It has been studied to see whether it can improve memory in people with dementia, and some studies found it did help. It's less clear whether ginkgo helps improve memory in healthy people who experience normal memory loss that

Nasal irrigation, or Neti, is a ancient tradition that is gaining popularity in the modern world for its effectiveness at treating allergies, sinus infections, and colds, among others. In yoga, the practice of "jala neti" is a powerful cleansing practice used to awaken higher states of meditation. According to India's ancient medicine, Ayurveda, nasal pots help relieve: • congestion • pollen • dust • smoke • other allergens and airborne contaminants • nasal dryness from air travel • and more... Over 40 Million people in the U.S. suffer from sinusitis and are growing resistant to antibiotics--some even experience negative side effects from the antibiotics. Neti, or Jalnati, is a great way to treat your sinuses naturally with no side effects or chemicals. Neti for Cold relief Nasal irrigation flushes the sinus caveties of virus infected mucus, working to prevent infection of the common cold or flu. Too late for prevention? Neti pots can ease symptoms associated with the common cold. Nasal irrigation can thin and remove mucus that results in sinus pain, headaches, and difficulty breathing. Repeated nose-blowing from cold symptoms can dry out the nasal passages and leave them feeling inflammed and uncomfortable. Use of a Neti pot and gentle neti salt can keep your nasal passages moisturized, and reduce inflammation. Neti for Allergy relief Allergies are diseases of the immune system that cause an overreaction to allergens. Plant pollens that are carried by the wind cause most of the allergies of the nose, eyes, and lungs. Certain trees, grasses and weeds, mold spores, and dander can be carried significant distances and be inhaled into the nose and lungs. Symptoms of seasonal or environmental allergies include itchy eyes, sneezing, runny nose, stuffy nose, fatigue and weakness. By using the Neti Pot and neti salt to flush the nasal passages of pollen, dust, and other airborne contaminants; allergy symptoms may be lessened, or even reduced. Neti for Headache relief One of the symptoms of cold, allergies, or sinus infections is sinus pain caused by thickened mucus and inflammation in the sinus passages. Neti relieves these types of headaches as it thins and flushes the mucus out. But what about other headaches? Nasal irrigation has a soothing and cooling effect on the brain, and many people use it to treate headaches caused by stress, mental tensions, migrains, and even to calm epilepsy, hysteria, and temper tantrums.

BodyBio Copper #4 Liquid Mineral, 2 fl oz Copper is essential for collagen stability, iron absorption and the prevention of free radical damage. Copper is important for the formation of hemoglobin and red blood cells, and supports enzyme reactions. It also assists in protein metabolism. FAQ's What are Liquid Minerals used for? Minerals are essential, but are depleted in most people, probably because of today’s over-fertilized, over-pesticized farming. Since heavy metals (“bad minerals”), such as Mercury, lead, cadmium, etc., are more prevalent in our society then ever before, it is believed that the intake of “good minerals” will help remove those toxins (bad minerals) One mineral can, and will, displace another with the same ionic value. By taking good minerals, we help displace bad minerals & mobilize them out of the body. It’s a double nutritional hit: adding needed minerals and detoxing at the same time. Why are your Liquid Minerals in liquid form? Minerals taken in liquid form are more readily absorbed in the body. Using the BodyBio Mineral Taste Test Kit gives you the ability to taste them and then take only the ones you need. Is the dosage listed on each bottle suitable for a child? Yes, however if the child is taking other supplements or medications, we recommend speaking with a health care practitioner. Since the dosage is measured in drops, the dosage is easily adjustable. Why do your Liquid Minerals need to be taken with Vitamin C? How much Vitamin C is needed? A pinch of Vitamin C is added to our Liquid Minerals because it helps to make the minerals more bio-available to the body. Are your liquid minerals Ionic or Colloidal? Why-what is the difference? E-Lyte Liquid minerals are ionic. Ionic minerals dissolve in aqueous solution (water), while colloidal minerals are suspended in aqueous solution. Are there any side effects from taking Liquid Minerals? None have ever been reported to us. Can your Liquid Minerals be taken on an empty stomach? They can be taken on an empty stomach.
